Rated 4 out of 5 by SartorialSavvy Beautiful Art Deco design; questionable quality
I have been stalking this belt ever since it first came out. I saw it in both colors -- the gray and the teal (teal now sold out online) -- at my local store over the long weekend. The design is really gorgeous. I love everything and anything Deco and this piece has a timeless quality. You can wear it with pretty much anything -- pants, capris, shorts, skirts, dresses -- and it will subtly enhance the style quotient of your outfit. The teal is less saturated and rather paler in real life than the online picture. The grey is as shown online.
My one gripe with this belt is that the suede is not of very high quality, and the belt consists of two pieces of suede attached together (a front and a back piece). Every belt I saw in the store had at least some separation between the two pieces. Really unfortunate. Subpar quality for sure. Also, I am a beanpole with a 23.5" natural waist and 33.5" hips, and I found the small to fit my drop waist pretty closely (I was on the second hole). I tried on a medium and it, too, fit me quite well -- which makes me think this belt runs rather small.

I bought this belt in grey and love it. I only wish it would come in XS as well, so that it could be worn at the natural waist.
