“Less is more,” the old adage goes. As true for a best man toast as it is for tuna casserole.
Also accurate, turns out, when it comes to belts.
At least according to NY’s own Lombardi Leather, creators of the buckle-less belt, now available online.
After a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, Lombardi’s now up-and-running with a suite of rugged leather goods stitched in upstate New York.
Notably absent from the Lombardi: the buckle.
Instead, it’s cinched by a leather loop that doubles back on itself to handsome effect.
Available in six artful colors, the Lombardi plays with everything from khakis to a casual suit getup – though for our money it’s worn best with denim, boots and a crisp tee.
Lombardi’s also hawking a range of stately leather cuffs and accessories to help round out the look.
Just remember, don’t overdo it – less is more, after all.
