For those looking for a way to keep those ever-widening pants strapped to your midsection, consider the Allevol 1 1/4 Quick Release Belt in Black/Pewter – it’s a fair few steps above your standard department store belting. It’s a handsome, slightly more narrow belt coming in at 1.25″ across, but in a black colorway, anyone can pull something more narrow off.
Cut from a deep black English bridle leather, this hearty strap was hand-cut in England and is made to last forever. Amazingly durable leather aside, the real star of the show here is the pewter quick-release buckle, originally concocted by Firemen who needed to quickly drop their belts that their firehose latched onto. So if you’re attaching fire hoses to your pants, or you’re someone who needs to drop trou’ quickly on the regular, this just might be the perfect belt for you.
