I suppose I could have made this into one ask, sorry about that. Anyway, I need belt advice! I got a pair of Rigid Levi 511's last week, and I'm having a hard time deciding what color belt to wear. They're a very dark/deep indigo color if that helps. Thanks!

Generally speaking, your belt should match your shoes in color (and probably material).

You could probably go really wild picking a belt out and spend some serious cash on a jean belt (generally a wider width than a dress belt) from places like Tanner Goods, Hollows Leather, Narragansett Leathers, and lots of other leather makers.

Personally, I just use L.L.Bean’s chino belt or a military surplus canvas web belt. I’d rather spend my money on other things, given that I often wear a jacket that covers my belt anyway.
