Rated 5 out of 5 by DuffontheCape Leather braided belt
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!

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.

This is my second such belt and the first has held up very well. Good quality material and construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BUYERFROMNEWJERSEY TRUE TO SIZE AND WELL MADE.
THE LEATHER FEELS TOP OF THE LINE. I'VE BEEN BUYING BELTS FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS AND HAVE NEVER HAD ANYTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT AN LLBEAN BELT.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NavRules Very good leather quality
There is a reason the advise for sizing this item should be your current waist size, it stretches. Said stretch has occurred on my purchase and it is substantial.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonfromtheNiles LL Bean's Braided Belt An Excelent Choice
It's very difficult to find a good quality braided leather belt at a reasonable price with LL Bean coming to the rescue. I find that mall format specialty retail clothing stores often offer a product such as a braided belt and then the next season it has already vanished as product line. LL Bean really seems to understand a customer's needs over a life span and there to assist accordingly. This braided belt fits perfectly ordering by your waist size and will no doubt last many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Foreverdancing Good Longlasting Belt
My husband and I both have ordered and reordered these belts. The quality and sizing seems to have returned to an earlier high level which is very good news. The sizes are once again true, These are really nice belts and hold up well to repeated wearings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SchnazzyLady No what it used to be
I'm so disappointed with the new version of this LLBean Essential Braided Belt. They've seen fit to downgrade the quality from my previous versions of this product. The webbing is too loose and even the belt loop is no longer braided reducing the appearance even more. If cost was a factor I would rather have had an increase in pricing than this cheapening of a good and necessary product. What a shame.
