Rated 3 out of 5 by BBCustomerPA Not even close to old strap quality
I have used these belts for decades and they have always been very durable, stylish and the quick change of buckle from one strap was sturdy. This new belt is very flimsy and is much thinner in the middle than the older strap. It's not a disaster, but no where near the old version which is what I was expecting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kelly123123 Too plastic.
My fine belt buckle is unable to sufficiently grip the plastic-like leather of this belt -- wearing the belt required constant re-tightening. Only Brooks' belts (among their competitors) have this problem.
Like other Brooks dress belts, this one is just ... plasticky. Am returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeantownShopper Solid belt strap
I would disagree with the other reviewer about sizing up. I found these straps to be true to their stated sizes and the same length as slide straps from other makers. I also measured them against my other buckled belts and found the lengths to be the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrSeersucker Great belt; Size up
Great quality. Leather limbers up with wear. DO NOT ORDER YOUR EXACT WAIST MEASUREMENT. Doing so will result in only one to two inches of extra leather. Order at least one size up, maybe two. I measure a 38, and the 42 works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikefromNC Well worth it.
My 34-inch dark brown belt fit true-to-size. Very good leather for the money--better than in previous years. Recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by valley The belt is defactive in that the snap will not stay snapped. I am going to have to exchange it when at a store.
