What about black buckle?
TheOneFrankie (2 months ago)
Ashley, you do work magic! Just checked-out Tom’s Instagram and I must say: I much prefer the way you dressed him in this vid compared to his own sense of style! 😂 There’s a reason why models need people dressing them for the runway.

Lost me at daniel wellington... Not saying you need to wear expensive watches, but there are plenty of real inexpensive high quality watches with great history.

No belt last for decades if it's regularly worn. That's ridiculous.

I love a larger buckle for casual with jeans and boots

The model is so hot.

Hi Ashley, I wonder if you could elaborate on when it is ok to rollup trousers as in 4:20. Is it always ok when wearing sneakers+jeans? How about with other types of pants? For example I have a couple of Fjäll Räven casual/outdoor pants which come standard extremely long, so people can choose to either roll them up, or cut and adjust. I wonder if those would be good candidates to roll up when wearing sneakers, not just for 20-year olds and/or older men e.g. 40+ like me :) What about rolling them up when wearing other casual shoes, not sneakers? Also, should the roll up be preferably like yours here, with full break? I have seen roll ups with no break at all, looks a bit childish to me, but I wonder what you suggestions would be, with respect to trouser rollups vs. shoe types, and also brake types

No tan belt?

Isn't 1.5" too wide? The belt in the supporting pic looks much narrow.
Alojzy Żyrokompas (1 year ago)
You've no idea how RARE it is to find this type of buckle at shops.
Orlando Cruz (1 year ago)
So anything smaller than 1 1/2 inches wide would look like a woman’s belt❓I mean there are tons of premium belts smaller than 1 1/2 inches which have been worn for ever but now it you’re ssying that you shouldn’t wear it? What are men supposed to do with all those belts❓
Orlando Cruz (1 year ago)
And you suggest a 1 3/4 to 2 inches width for a casual belt but that looks extremely wide to me and this is coming from someone who likes wide belts with jeans .
Orlando Cruz (1 year ago)
You say that a formal belt’s width should be close to 1 1/2 inches but the formal belt on your model looks more like 1 1/4 inches.. I think 1 1/2 is pretty wide to be considered formal imo. Again . Your formal belts on your model look smaller than 1 1/2 . Did you get the measurements wrong?
Raul Saavedra (1 year ago)
Belts wider than 1 1/2 " will not fit in quite many jeans / casual pants, so those are not universally casual or practical in that respect
Nico Herrera (1 year ago)
Between 1 1/5” and 1 1/2” is a dress belt, more than that is casual
Nico Herrera (1 year ago)
Orlando Cruz no she doesn’t, less than 1 1/5 “ (1.2) doesn’t look good on men above 5,8
Sky Trigueiro (1 year ago)
I don't know if you're aware, but in your article you recommend that casual belts are 1 3/4 - 2" wide, but none of the casual belts you recommend are in that range. The widest is 1 3/8", which is what you've defined as dress belt range. Does this mean that, for a casual belt, the width of the belt is the less important than texture and finish?
Brian Do (1 year ago)
You are probably not aware that none of the casual belts you recommend fit your width standard of over 1.5”. In fact, none of them are wide enough to be even 1.5”, what you say is the width for a dress belt.

Isn't AW being a bit rigid? Why would a solid black buckle (that mostly blends with black jeans, and is therefore quite subtle), make you look like a douche bag? Can't see what's outrageous with such a belt. When things get that specific, with extreme comments on something that is actually quite innocuous, can't help but think it's more subjective opinion of one person, and not a widely-shared view. Much better to say "this is my opinion, but some others find X, Y, or Z also appealing", or "this is my preference, but the bigger buckle may also work under X, Y, or Z, etc, conditions".

You forgot to mention the +4 strength +4 stam leather belt.

Lucifer Sam (2 years ago)
I have to disagree a little bit about her dress belts. A good leather belt with a tasteful belt buckle is totally awesome! It makes the outfit look younger and hip, but not boyish.
Orlando Cruz (1 year ago)
She’s not giving us much options yet they can wear whatever they want. That sucks. I like my casual belt I wear with boots to make a statement. You barely see the buckle in her casual pick and looks dressy to me.
JJ Natteri (2 years ago)
I understand why some people might think that Ashley is annoying but I just love her and her videos. At least for me, she really comes across as genuine and down to earth. As a bonus, the information is superb.

Hi AW. I need to get two new casual belts and in your video you mention keep width somewhere between 1 3/4" and 2". I can only find in 1 1/2"? Suggestions.... Thanks for all the style suggestions... 👍🏻
Fred Calabrese (2 years ago)
I try to match my belt color with my shoe color. The one caveat is to avoid white belts.
Avishek Bhatacharjee (2 years ago)
I really like your way of presentation...you seem like a down to earth & an honest person....pls dont change your style...
Matt Sathrohan (2 years ago)
yeah this helped a lot. thanks!
Yobo Lion (2 years ago)
Your right! I bought a crap belt 25 years ago and only now has it fallen apart! I can only imagine what durability a high end belt might bring.

Hi Ashley, the width of belt you recommend in your article from h&m is 1.1 inch (I recently bought the exact same belt). So that's an okay width right?

Is the gray crew neck sweater too big for him?
Karwin Lam (2 years ago)
are 1 inch belts okay or are they too thin? because those are the only dress belts I see in Zara, h&m and uniqlo
Peter Rivera-Pierola (2 years ago)
Thanks Ashley! In your article you mention that dress belts should stay close to 1.5" but your suggested dress belts are 1.25" and your suggested casual belts are 1.375". Is it safe to assume that 1.5" will work for either dress or casual belts?
Peter Rivera-Pierola (2 years ago)
Good to know! Yea I'm intrigued by the concept—obviously addressing a consumer need for better fit—but the aesthetics leave something to be desired. I've seen similar products with more traditional looking belt buckles but can't attest to their quality. Even Anson's "traditional" style is missing the middle prong that so strongly communicates "belt". I know better than to even look at the square "douchebag" buckle (as you've so hilariously—and accurately coined). Thanks for your thoughts.
Peter Rivera-Pierola (2 years ago)
+Ashley Weston thanks Ashley. I ask because I'm interested in trying those new Anson hole-less belts (are you familiar with them?) and they come in 1.25" or 1.5" widths. Given my mostly business casual attire (chinos, slacks, and slim jeans) and the occasional suit, I'm actually thinking the 1.25" might better suit my needs. Thoughts?
William Harding (2 years ago)
Thanks for the video Ashley. Do you have an opinion on a dress belt with two loops? http://www.allenedmonds.com/accessories/belts/dress-belts/wide-basic-dress-belt/SF39501.html?dwvar_SF39501_color=39501#start=3

How abut fabric belts ? A video on how to co-ordinate these with an outfit would be nice please :)
Aamin Ravjani (2 years ago)
Hey Ashley, Fan from India!! I had watched all of your essential series It's very informative for getting well dressed 👍👍 It will be very helpful if you can make a video on shirts and trousers , we as a youngsters can sport everyday in office...as Suit is very limited to occasional events...

What's your view on Anson Belt & Buckle ?ansonbelt.com Thanks.

I love you, simply love you..

the douchebag part killed me!! haha, I love your work
Andre (3 years ago)
Ashley, I've got a question about matching leather belts with the wide variety of leather shoes colours. As far as I know, lathers should match... so if I'm wearing, say burgundy or tan leather shoes, shouldn't I also wear a belt matching those colours? Thanks!
Andre (3 years ago)
Thanks a lot, love your videos!
Imam Rafi (3 years ago)
Wow! I love you so much. Thanks for helping men to be more awesome :)

Bigbadmonkey (3 years ago)
Hi Ashley, How do you feel about gold on belts instead of silver? Can I mix and match say for instance I have a silver dress belt but I have a gold watch?(vice versa) or should I stick to all silver/ all gold?

What's your opinion on belts with buckles like LV and Hermes?

Mehdi Difallah (3 years ago)
Ashley, You are awesome. I love your channel. You have taught me a lot of things. Thank you so much for your advice. How about some Hugo Boss's belts with pin buckles? Not sure I'm clear on that... You know the belts without loops (e.g. HUGO BOSS BLACK BALDWIN LEATHER SQUARE BUCKLE BLACK BELT)? Should we avoid those? Greetings from France
Roi Rabinek (3 years ago)
i thought you say a v neck sweatshirt is better when dressing with dress shirts...?
Roi Rabinek (3 years ago)
+Ashley Weston ty :)
Arnav Sengupta (3 years ago)
A braided navy casual belt is also a great option. You can sharpen up a casual look of a white button down shirt and a blue/light blue chino. Throw on the navy belt with a navy suede loafer. Great summer look.
Jimmy Figueroa (3 years ago)
I really like your channel you're really sweat and funny and explain everything correctly thank you Ashley.

Hi Ashley, how about for an example Louis Vuitton neogram 30mm belt? Is that okay to wear cause I bought that one before I watch this video grrrrr
AlphaRed28 (3 years ago)
Awesome video once again. Does it matter if the casual brown belt is slightly lighter or darker than brown leather shoes or chukka boots? I'm assuming as so long as the belt and shoes are in the same family colour, it doesn't matter so much when going casual.
AlphaRed28 (3 years ago)
+Ashley Weston Thanks Ashley.
ZenDude65 (3 years ago)
I like a canvas striped belt in the summer when wearing shorts, it says fun and hip, what do you think?
Chris V.S. (3 years ago)
Haha I hear ya...understand. But as we all know style is subjective. Anyway, That's actually a reason I like the Anson. They have a buckle that looks traditional but with a cleaner look.
Chris V.S. (3 years ago)
Good advice as usual + you're a cutie = good video. What's your take on ratchet belts (like slidebelts.com, ansonbelt.com, etc.)? I like my Ansons. They have some nice leather (dress) options compared to the others.
Freebit (3 years ago)
Thank you Ashley, keep on the good work! Subbed. Btw, somehow I registered for newsletter from your website but haven't received the confirmation...
Rishi Mehta (3 years ago)
Thank you for all your videos. What's your opinion on simple, solid belt buckles with suits like the one in this link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B017QPJ1QA/ref=twister_B00XNEVJ6O?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 Do dress belts always have to be open buckle or is solid buckle ok?
John Tratnyek (3 years ago)
do you not like gold buckles and if so why?
HueBearSong (3 years ago)
This is actually something I have no idea about. I just have three belts. One black leather, one brown leather, and one needlepoint.
Ivo Sotirov (3 years ago)
Haha, is this the guy from Silicon Valley?! Guys don't be that that guy! EVER!
Chachi Shapiro (3 years ago)
Thanks for the tips. When would you recommend NOT wearing a belt (besides the obvious "when you're wearing swim trunks," when wearing suspenders, etc.)?
Chachi Shapiro (3 years ago)
Ahhh, I can dig that. Thanks for the advice. I'm sure I'll be coming back for your answers. Really loving your channel.
