Carlos Santos Patina Belts
Your Trousers' Best Friend
Your belt is your trousers' best friend. It keeps them in place while at the same time looking elegant and professional. For more formal outfits, it is an excellent idea to match your belt to your shoe color.
Carlos Santos is famous for the Hand-Painted Patinas on their shoes. The Noble Shoe now offers Patina Belts in all 20 colors that you can select through the Patina Service in lengths ranging from 85 - 110 cm. Read further down for sizing advice.
Important! Belts usually take a few weeks to arrive! Colors Bosco, Barraida, Taupe & Tejo Available on request.
Finding The Correct Size
Don't worry, choosing a belt is easy and takes just a minute. Follow these instructions:
- Find your best fitting belt
- Lay it flat on a surface
- Measure with a measuring tape from the edge of the buckle until the third hole (if you are uncertain look at the measuring picture on this page)
- Select the belt closest to your size in cm
The leather has a unique smell and the belts have a high lustrous shine. This creates a harmony between your lower and upper outfit. Of course, it is Premium Calfskin from the finest tanneries. The Hand-Painting is excellent with natural nuances along the skin and the beautiful "irregularities" of a Patina.
Bought the Adelaide Oxford in Guimares patina and got a belt to match. Very nice belt. Soft and versatile. The buckle and stiching are solid. Liked the shoe and belt so much that I bought a black belt and a shoe to match. (Also ordered an Oxford CS GMTO - will submit reviews of all three shoes at a later date) Back to the belt, it is a great product at a very reasonable price. As many others have commented, Kostas' service is outstanding. He brings a certain passion that is rare and refreshing.

Awesome color and the fit is great. I will be ordering more items.
Love the belts
I ordered 4 shoes with 4 matching belts. Everything 'looked' great, unfortunately of the four belts, all were the right size except the blue/norte one. (Not sure what size it is because only one of the four belts has a possible size written on it (95? see pics) Sadly, the blue one was the one I was looking forward to the most (along with the blue shoes and a blue watch band I bought elsewhere). Now as I read their return policy, It appears I have to pay to ship the belt back because of... somebody else's mistake??? Hopefully, especially since I ordered just over $1,500.00 US of goods, they will contact me and make this right. (ie. send me the right size Norte/blue belt that matches the other's length, along with a prepaid box to return the larger one) Otherwise, the construction and look of these belts is very good and upon the correction of this error, I will edit this review and the rating to 5 stars! (Thank you Kostas for the handwritten note that came with my order :)
I appreciate your honest review Stephen. As I wrote in my email, If you wanted to go through the process of the exchange and waiting, I would have been more than happy to change your belt even as a custom item as it was their fault or my overlook.
