Verified Buyer Reviewed by OCULUS from Rensselaer, NY on Monday, June 25, 2012I tend to collect belts, so this one caught my attention a long time ago, but considering its design and pricing, I'm glad I held off until it hit clearance. The belt is good-quality leather and the design is unique, but clunky and not adjustable in fine increments. The leather tabs that engage the buckle are spaced an inch and a half apart, and can offer too-snug or too-loose belting, depending on which pants you're wearing.
While the buckle may be interchangeable, no standard buckle is going to work because it needs to engage the leather tab edges to grip--there are no buckle holes etc.
When it's all said and done, I don't get the point of the design: it's cumbersome and only something the wearer can appreciate. Maybe it's an updated chastity belt because no "casual observer" could ever figure it out in the dark....

Verified Buyer Reviewed by josh from Pittsburgh on Tuesday, September 6, 2011Unique color is more like a grayish blue. Perfect to wear with jeans. The buckle is just big enough. Impressed with the quality for the price!
