Men’s Bags And Belts
Buying men’s bags based on that season used to only be a woman’s shopping task at one time. Whether the search was at the stores or on-line, most guys won’t bother especially if they don’t mind what the look is old or new. For others, in style and current fashion is very important and keeping up with what is trending is the way to go. As for bags and belts, matching them is an individual preference that includes footwear as well. The shade of the bag and the belt don’t have to match perfectly, since they are not right beside each other. Below is a brown messenger bag and to the right below it, is an option for a belt to use which is a black and brown reversible style.
Having the same messenger bag, satchel or briefcase among others and a belt with similar colors gives it that final touch. A small accent to your look worn for the occasion balances out the color besides just having the bag. Business or casual wear, accessories like belts are not just a great addition for style, but to help pants fit better at the waist or the hips, which ever way they are worn. They are an essential part of a man’s wardrobe and not only for style.
Making the choice for wearing a belt starts with individual taste, size, color, fabric and comfort improving what you are wearing. Belts are sized in two ways and one is by the number of the waist size. The standard sizes start from 34 to 38 inches which are most popular depending on if they are worn around the waist or hips, and this can go to a 40 inch. The other sizing is S, M, L, XL and up. Below is a tan belt that would go with the tan sling shoulder bag.
Leather remains to be the most popular of materials for belts with all types from low to full grade. Over time other materials were used like faux or imitation leather, canvas, nylon, plastic and metal to name a few. Colors include black, brown, gray, beige, tan and are open to many more as well as blue, green, red and more. Width can be from 3/4 inch to three inches which is best for comfort. This depends on the width of belt loops on the pants so be sure to measure first.
Buckles are the favorite over velcro, snap or tie-up closures. Metal buckles are usually gold tone, silver or brass in different shades. Plastic buckles come in many colors matching what the belt material is and styles can be plain, woven leather or fabric, embossed, studded, printed or made with exotic skins. There are also two in one reversible belt styles having one color in two different shades for each side, or two completely different colors as shown in the picture with the black and brown belt. In the end it all comes down to the mood or occasion at hand for what will be decided upon to wear.
