Available in all matching patinas, anyone purchasing shoes from Carlos Santos should definitely look into investing into a matching belt. The quality is great, and the second 'ring' is adjustable, which is a nice detail for all the minimalists out there looking for perfection. These can be used as great essentials building up your wardrobe to replace those tacky ugly belts many men are seen wearing.
It is true that you can get belts for much cheaper, but the quality will definitely be noticeable. As usual, CS has the perfect balance between quality and price.
I was a bit unsure of fit but after speaking with Kostas I pulled the trigger and am very please that they fit very well. They look as nice in real life than in the photos. The matching belt is great too. I would be happy to shop from Kostas in the future.
I recently purchased 2 Carlos Santos Patina Belts. One in Coimbra and one in Alintejo. Both are rich and beautiful in color and of course go perfectly with my Carlos Santos Chukka Boots in the same patina. At $79.95 each they seem a bargain for the quality.
If you buy a pair of shoes in a color you don't currently have, it's a good idea to buy the same colored belt at the same time. This is something that is difficult to do in most department stores, but really pulls together an outfit. I bought a wine shadow belt to match some wine shadow shoes. It is a very well made belt with high quality leather and really nice stitch density. Just like when sizing the shoes, Kostas really helped make sure I got the right sized belt.
