Pros: Pretty tortoise buckle is a nice change from the usual silver or gold buckles, but still neutral enough to go with just about anything (I bought the black one). The width of the belt is the main reason I bought it; it isn't to skinny or wide and fits perfectly in my jeans belt loops. Cons: The stiff synthetic fabric. There's a good chance this belt will not wear well at the hole closure. Also, the belt loop to hold down the excess at the end has a floppy, flimsy strap holding it in place, that makes it cumbersome to do back up during the day. I think is is done this way with the intention to be able to run the loop along the belt, should you gain or lose a little weight at the waist. In theory it's a great idea, the cheap execution is what I have the problem with. I will include a picture, since you won't see it on the website. Finally, the sizing seems to run a little small. I wear Reitmans jeans size 32 petite, and own the belt in size L/XL, wearing it on the last hole. Would not recommend for the sizing and poor execution, but the great width and pretty buckle may be enough to convince you to buy it on sale.
