27 Best Belts for Men 2024

Belts: Not as common as one might think—but they should be. Belts keep your pants secure. They prevent the dreaded plumber's crack. And they can tie a whole look together or add a flourish. Seriously—even if your pants fit you perfectly, adding a belt to your look creates dimension and detail, and goes to make you look that much more put-together, intentional, and elevated. The beauty of the belt is that there are plentiful styles to choose from: Oversized embossed leather beauties with pronounced buckles, classic black and brown bridle leather styles for events with a dress code, a few suede options, some woven or Western pieces, and even some with clip closures.

Different strokes for different folks, right? At the end of the day, though, you do not want to be caught without a belt in a situation where you might need one, whether it's because your pants are too big or your outfit is too lackluster. When in doubt, just remember: you're better off with a belt, maybe even a few in the rotation (because I know you wouldn't dare to pair a brown leather belt with black leather shoes, or vice versa). Don't fret; just scroll. We have 27 of the best belt options below.
