A quality leather belt isn’t something that should be overlooked when it comes to fashion and style.

Most department store belts claim to be made of leather, but are actually pieced together with mostly cheap, low-quality, synthetic materials. Very little actual leather is used to make the belt.

While these types of belts might look good in the store, what ends of happening over time is that they begin to crack, lose their shape, and in some cases, even stretch out.

The good news is that there are a bunch of great belt companies out there that construct their belts using a solid, single piece of full grain leather. Not only do these types of belts look and feel great, but a 100% solid leather belt is tough enough to last a lifetime. Literally.

So if you are in search of a durable, great looking casual leather belt, you’ve come to the right place. Below is my list of 12 highly recommended casual leather belts for men. Each one features a solid, 1 piece construction using the finest leather available. Enjoy.
