Hip new pants will come and go, but the Grant Stone Chromexcel (CXL) belts keeping them in place won’t. A solid leather belt owes a debt to solid craftsmanship, but also to solid materials like CXL from Horween, and Grant Stone has both. Horween’s proprietary chrome-tanned leather is great for leather goods of all kinds, but it’s a popular choice for belts, CXL belts usually feel buttery and broken-in right from the start, only getting better with more use.
These CXL waistbands come in three colors to help you match to all your CXL boots. Don’t have any? Now might be the time to upgrade the wardrobe to match, think of all the weddings that you’ll be invited to post-quarantine. Think about your own wedding. Or don’t.
They come with single-prong brass buckles, matching leather keepers to secure the pointed strap-end, tonal stitching, size stamp on the back, and five round holes. Be mindful of sizing with belts, Chromexcel, in particular, has a tendency to stretch, so measure a currently used belt, and cross-reference a sizing guide before purchasing.
