Overview

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.

Wide Basic Dress Belt is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 185.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tanning Or Color Issues I have owned this belt in both Brown and Black for less than one year. Worn only in my office, for at most 8 hours at a time, the belts are visibly losing color and showing wear, especially where they have been creased and inserted through the belt buckle. Additionally, there are marks all along the belt that have the same issue. I haven't been able to figure out why there are so many. It looks like I wore this belt and rolled around in the street one afternoon. I assume the belt doesn't like being rubbed against stuff. For what it is worth, the leather "feels" right and looks good enough before this occurred. However, this seems pretty off and I've noted a couple other folks responding with similar issues. Every time I pick up the belts, I am surprised by how noticeable the wear is. Like others have noted, I can not identify the same issues on any of my AE Manistee belts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide Dress Belt I purchased the wide dress belt in walnut color. The design and quality are what you would expect from Allen Edmonds and at a reasonable price. My only criticism would be that the actual color Isn’t quite what I expected from the photos in the catalogue- differs some. Nevertheless, actually a good match for my shoes and no disappointment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful belt but..... The belt is very nice and does match my shoes from Allen Edmonds perfectly. The drawback is that the belt buckle has the Allen Edmonds logo on it, which I was not aware of when I purchased the belt. I probably should have returned it... Such a shame, really, because the product is of very high quality. The logo on the buckle diminishes my generally high regards for the Edmonds image. Seems tacky to me to have a logo on a dress belt no matter how small or discreet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great belt to match my Strands Great simple, classic belt. The AE logo on buckle is not noticble at all.

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.

This is only available as pictured. We recommend the Midland, Clay Ave, or Poplar belts which are similar and do not have a branded buckle. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Cracking in Leather
