Allen Edmonds makes a lot of great leather belts. The Midland, for example, is a perfectly smooth belt of burnished leather that is impressively stylish without any real frills. The Manistee, on the other hand, is a versatile brogue leather belt that will add some flair to your suit or your jeans. Made from full-grain vegetable tanned leather, it features intricate perforated details running all along the sides – similar to a classic pair of brogue shoes. In fact, Allen Edmonds designed them to complement some of their brogue shoes and wants you to pair them together.
And when we say that Allen Edmonds puts a lot of attention-to-detail into this belt, we mean it; they’ve even colored the inside of each hole, eliminating any visible raw edges of the inside of the leather. As a result, it’s an extremely sleek belt with enough style to add to your outfit without distracting.
The buckle is a silver-tone, nickel-free buckle. And the belt is 35mm wide (1.5″) – considered the ideal width for a dress belt.
And of course, it’s Allen Edmonds, so the Manistee has been handcrafted in the USA to the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship imaginable. This belt will last you years – maybe decades – to come and look damn good in the process. Pair it with a classy pair of brogue wingtips for the complete ensemble.
