Details & Overview

Wide Basic Dress Belt


  • Dress belt
  • Custom and burnished calfskin leather
  • Silver-tone buckle
  • 35mm wide
  • Handcrafted in the USA


The idea behind the Wide Basic is simple, create an elegant staple that every man should have hanging in his closet. To achieve this, we started with the same fine French calfskin that’s used is some of the world’s most coveted bags. We tanned it in France, finished in Italy and in keeping with its name we added an unadorned rectangular buckle and two carefully placed keepers. Sophisticated and understated, the simple, classic design of the belt serves to highlight the rest of your attire. Feel the quality of the leather in your hand and then slip it on with a suit, chinos or jeans and a pair of our welted shoes and you will discover that the Wide Basic is anything but basic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good looking, but quality issues. I own this belt in several colors. It's a good looking belt that has the slightly greater width that I prefer. Several other reviewers noted the "Allen Edmonds" imprint on the top face of the buckle. This logo is so small and subtle that I never really noticed it before reading the reviews. Personally I doubt anyone else would be able to see it while you are wearing the belt. However, my concerns are due to the quality of the leather. The belts scuffs quickly with normal office wear. It looks as if I've been wearing a clip-on cell phone (I haven't) or something that has rubbed on the belt. The leather color also starts to flake off where the belt creases to pass through the buckle. The result is that I have had to frequently reorder replacement belts. The cost is too high and unfortunately I will have to look elsewhere for my next belts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing quality I bought this belt together with a pair of chilli park avenues. After around a month of wearing (2x per week) the pelt had so many scratches and color issues, that I had to put it aside. (No exceptional use, just desk, presentations etc) Actually I forgot about it for around a year in the meantime, however after seeing the other reviews, I decided to share my experience as well. I never had this with any other belt before. And this experience stopped me from buying further AE products. If these problems have been fixed and you want to offer a replacement, feel free to reach out to me. Thank You Michael

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed with this belt! Was on vacation in NYC summer 0f 2016 and bought the belt along with a pair of Delray Dress Shoes in Chili Burnished Calf from your Madison Avenue store. Intent was for the belt to match the shoes. Color match was not perfect but acceptable. What is not acceptable is the quality of the belt. I wore the belt perhaps a half dozen times and it showed scuffs, scratches and pigment discoloration to the point where I could not wear it anymore. I have purchased at least 15 pair of AE Dress Shoes, Casual Shoes and Boots in various colors and styles and have considered each to be a good purchase. Currently I am sitting down to order belts to match AE shoes in Dark Chili, Oxblood, Walnut and another Chili Burnished Calf to replace the belt I purchased in 2016. My intention was to buy on line four - Wide Basic Dress Belts. However now I am reconsidering the purchase as when I read the reviews for this belt I find that there were a number of others that experienced similar issues to what I experienced regarding inferior quality. Question is has the inferior quality of the belt been addressed? If so I would purchase the four belts. As well, should I do that and a similar issue with the quality of the belt arise in six months or so can I return them for a full refund? As mentioned I must have purchased in excess of a 15 pair of AE shoes and very much like them. However the issue with my belt is becoming a concern that is impacting my go forward position regarding purchasing shoes and accessories from AE. I hope someone from your organization can reach out to me to assure me should I purchase the belts I will be Guaranteed to be satisfied with them and if not can return for a full refund.

Is this available with an unadorned buckle? I really want this belt, but I won’t buy it with a printed logo. Quality can speak for itself.
