Rated 5 out of 5áby Bootsy17 Rugged jeans belt
This is just what I was looking for - a simple, rugged leather belt to be worn with jeans. It did not disappoint in the slightest. It is very simple and plain, without any stitching on the leather except that designed to hold the buckle on. If you're looking for something fancy, this isn't it but the quality is first rate and it looks great with jeans. Highly recommended.

Rated 1 out of 5áby MisterFiat Not Much Good to Say
I'm sorry - I never thought I'd need to write such a negative review on an item from LLBean, and though I don't review my purchases very often this one cries out to warn other potential buyers...
Sizing: the belt is a good 3" longer than its' stated size. Quality: Not good. I bought the Cactus color and the finish appears uneven (maybe a desired "look"?), and is marred very easily by contact with almost anything. Simply flexing the belt into a small radius appears to "fracture" the finish, leaving a lighter color area. The edges are fairly sharp and rough. The buckle has an "antiqued" type finish that leaves scars on the belt where pulled through to fasten. Worn one day, and it is already not very nice looking...
Resigned to keeping it, I tried some leather conditioner on the belt. This did reduce the rough feel of the edges, but cosmetically had little other result. I'll wear it as a work belt in the shop, but likely not out in the public.
On the positive side, this belt does hold your pants up.
I have another LLBean Jean Belt, from many years back, that I have nothing but possitives to say about it. It is a shame that "they don't make them like that any more"!

Rated 5 out of 5áby DeputyBob Perfect belt!
I have had the hardest time trying to find a basic black belt to wear with jeans that looks nice and feels comfortable, and I finally decided to get the 1912 Jean belt, and I am very pleased with it. It has a nice feel to it, and looks good with my black jeans.

Rated 1 out of 5áby cdcoleman Very cheaply constructed belt.
Do not get this belt. In the past, these belts were made from full grain leather, the highest quality leather. Now, they are made from a company in England of genuine leather, the lowest quality leather. This belt is made from bonded leather and is no longer the quality of the belt that they used to make. It looks cheap, and about the only quality product on this belt is the buckle. I ordered one recently and when I got it I sent it back the same day. Again, this is a cheap, bonded leather belt that no way reflects the quality of the LL Bean products of the past.

Rated 3 out of 5áby blagdash Description is misleading
Description says this is "full-grain leather" and "will break in nicely". Back side of the belt is clearly stamped "Genuine Leather" and it looks and feels like it (bonded leather scraps). It's still a good belt and about what you'd expect at that price point, but the incorrect description is a disservice to people who are trying to comparison shop. Genuine Leather and full-grain leather are not the same thing.

Rated 2 out of 5áby ObscureBean Not much of a belt
Buckle felt lightweight and cheaply made. Leather had kind of a rubbery feel to it. It's not something I'd want to put my hands on every morning. Ugh.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Geno47 Too long
Ordered a 36. We had to cut two inches off and punch another hole. Otherwise, very attractive and well made belt.

Rated 3 out of 5áby nebinbackpacker looks nice but runs small
the size was a bit small. if you go by your waist size (without pants) and you are in between sizes, then get the larger one.
