What Color Belt is Ideal For Your Lifestyle?

by Ryan Popoff January 05, 2018

As men we are limited in the types of accessories we can wear on a day-to-day basis. Belts are one of the integral ways we can showcase our personal style. From the belt itself to the belt buckle, belts are not only functional but also fashionable.

The belts offered on Popov Leather are minimalist in design, showcasing their sleek leather material without tons of distracting designs. For some, the minimalism is perfect on its own. Others may enjoy the fact that our belts are engineered to work with any belt buckles they may want to showcase, and the plain leather design does not detract from the buckle you choose.

As you select the perfect belt to add to your wardrobe, you may debate which color belt to purchase. We offer belts in black, bourbon, and russet, and all three are beautifully made and designed with minimalism in mind. However, in the spirit of buying less for more, you may decide you want to purchase one belt for multiple occasions. With that in mind, I have outlined which belt is ideal for your lifestyle.

For the Businessman

If your day-to-day life involves suits, ties, and meetings with CEOs, you want a belt that will match your attire and doesn't look out of place in the office. The rule of thumb for men is that your belt should match your shoes, although if you can simultaneously match your belt to your briefcase you will look like you really have your act together.

Our recommendation? Black

For the Outdoors Enthusiast

If you spend a lot of time outdoors, whether for hobbies like hiking or for industries like logging, you may want a belt that matches your more rustic lifestyle. You want a belt that will blend in well with jeans and boots, that will go well in the woods, and that will still look nice if it gets faded or scraped up.

Our recommendation? Russet

For the Club Hopper

If your night life includes bar hopping and going out with friends, you want a belt that looks classic and that's easy to wipe off if you spill a beer on yourself. The darkness of many night clubs means that your friends won't necessarily appreciate fun-colored belts, which makes it even easier to choose the right belt for this occasion.

Our recommendation? Black

For the Artist

One of the benefits of fashion is its ability to say something about your lifestyle without you having to say a word. If you spend a lot of time doing art, you want a belt that's a little bit unique and interesting, adding intrigue to your wardrobe without being over-the-top. Being an artist means you may wear different colored shoes on different days as you do not have a firm uniform, so matching your belt to your shoes isn't necessarily the way to go. Instead, you'll want to choose a belt that will look good with multiple pairs of shoes while also showcasing your unique sense of style.

Our recommendation? Bourbon

Every man is different, and every man has different requirements. That's why we offer our goods in multiple colors. Belts are one place to make a fashion statement, and it's important to keep in mind your lifestyle, habits, and hobbies before purchasing a fine leather belt.

I’ve written before about the benefits of wet shaving, citing the smooth face and pristine results you can achieve. If you’re new to wet shaving, however, you’re as likely to end up nicked and damaged as you are to end up with a beautiful, clean cut. Unless you’re looking to re-enact some key scenes from Sweeney Todd, it’s important to have your wet shaving technique down to a science.

Valentine’s Day is stressful. From picking the right outfit to the right place to eat, there are a lot of considerations to make. One consideration you don’t have to make tonight is whether or not you’re going to pack enough money. The advent of credit and debit cards means that wallets are lighter than they’ve ever been. Far from needing to pack a plethora of currencies, credit cards allow you to get away with using a minimalist wallet on even the most luxurious occasions.
