You know it. We all know it: Most belts are terrible. They’re just thrown together from shoddy materials (“genuine leather”) and after a few months of regular wear, they start stretching, flaking and eventually breaking, which looks terrible and not at all appropriate for the office. Or looking like a decently dressed human being at all. Thankfully, if you’re willing to spend a little more of your paycheck on this Allen Edmonds belt, you can avoid most these problems.
The Allen Edmonds Midland Ave is a classy dress belt, about as quality and classic as it gets. Following Allen Edmonds famous naming conventions, its named after a street in New York. And in keeping with Allen Edmonds famed craftsmanship, it’s handcrafted in the USA from real top-grain leather, burnished for the smoothest texture you’ve ever seen on a piece of leather, and then polished for a shine you could fix your tie in. There’s no stitching or detailing; just smooth, straight leather, 35mm wide. Finishing off the look is a silver tone buckle that’s square, but not too much so.
Paired with a shiny pair of dress shoes, the Midland Ave gives a look that strikes the perfect combination of elegant, bold and confident. A navy or grey suit, chinos, slacks, jeans – this kind of belt pairs with all of them. And best of all, it’ll last you a lifetime. The leather is of the highest quality, and there’s no cutting of corners; just the finest American craftsmanship you’ve come to expect from Allen Edmonds.
You can choose Black or Oxblood if you like, but we’re partial to that gorgeous, rich Walnut.
