Rated 1 out of 5 by Padriac Not as soundly made as I expected.
I've owned several braided belts so when I needed one I decided to go with Bean. This is below grade. Thin leather strips, difficult to pull through trouser loops. Not up to Bean standards that I'm used to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by heyacuraman Good but not great
Belt was darker and longer than i imagined. Also, the leather is thinner than i expected for the price.

Love this belt. It keeps its shape and adjusts with my waist line. Already have a brown one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sailrail Braided Belt Lower Quality than Previous Edition
The belt I bought in August 2015 was clearly lower in quality and finish than the previous version I received as a gift about 5 years ago. Both belts are stamped size 36, but the recent one is two inches longer than the previous one. The previous one was braided in a way that only the finished, outer hide was showing. The recent one has the hide's flesh side showing on the back of the belt. Also, the previous edition was braided to form holes for the buckle's tang, Not so the current one. All in all, the current one is inferior.

I like this type of belt, but it s well to order a smaller than usual size. I ordered one several years ago ,a 38,and it stretched over time. So this one is a size 36, which is more comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ManfromManotick Photo is not quite Right
This is a lovely, versatile, and comfortable belt. The photo of it, though, is a bit misleading as the belt is totally matte finish not shiny as the photo implies. I have an identical one purchased elsewhere which has a high gloss finish and prefer it to Bean's matte finish.

Excellent belt made of fine soft leather. I have this same style belt and decided to get one made of darker leather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1mom2teacher Great belt!
This belt is MUCH softer than any braided belt I have seen in stores! It's like it has already been broken in and the color is beautiful too. Definitely the best braided belt we have found after tons of searching!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Carl518 Long
The current version of these belts (August 2015) are very long. I've always got size 32 in every belt I've owned, but size 32 in these were more like size 35. I highly recommend going down at least one size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dunebuggy Comfortable, solid construction
Terrific all around braided belt for wearing with khakis, shorts, etc. Very comfortable fit, with solid construction and great "feel." Only issue is that it stretches - I followed instructions and ordered a size 36" (my waist measurement.) However, it stretched to about 38" in less than 1 year, leaving the tag end looking very long & sloppy. I recently returned for a size 34" - have not noticed any stretching to date; but if it does, I should have the "right" size. With no stretching this belt would rate 5 stars.
