The Louis Vuitton Jeans Calf Leather Belt. You'd think they would come up with a better name. $560 on louisvuitton.com.

To answer your question, no – I am not a proponent of spending over $500 on a belt.  I am even less of a proponent of spending that much on a belt you wear with jeans. 

It’s mind boggling really.

But by God man, I love looking at this belt whenever I am in the Louis Vuitton store.  It’s the perfect size, color, weight and would look fantastic on a pair of jeans.

Unless you knew what it was, you wouldn’t even know it was made by Louis Vuitton.

Can you get something somewhere else for much cheaper? Absolutely.  Would you still be thinking about this belt in the back of your mind whenever you walk by a Louis Vuitton store?  Positively.

For more information about this fantastic belt, you can view the official Louis Vuitton website.  Just don’t let me know you got one because I might have to “borrow it” for an extended period of time.

Make sure you get a size 32 waist and we’ll be good. Oh – and the product ID is M6812W.
