Rated 5 out of 5 by DickyRicardo Nice style & Color!
The belt moves (expands) with me, and is very comfortable!
Because it uses actual closure holes should last longer than previous versions of braided belts that I have owned in the past that closed through the braids!

Rated 1 out of 5 by forcehawk belt stretches, loop to hold end of belt too small
I would have returned this item if I did not need it to hold my pants up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigBill3123 The Best Belt
This design of expandable belt is the best on the market. The leather end eliminates the problem of any punctures to the stretch area and looks good. The elastic properties of the belt last, I have had this on in the past and as soon as they showed up again, I bought two more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Idontknownickname A good price but the belts are not top notch
I really like this style of belt and they're getting harder and harder to find. I ordered two different colors of this belt and while the price was right, I doubt that the belts will stand the test of time.
First of all, they run large. I guess when you order online, it's tough to know this but a word to the wise. Second, the leather feels more like plastic. I've had enough belts over the last years to fell pretty sure that the belts will have short lives.
I've ordered belts in the past like this from upscale providers with mixed results. So this isn't something that's specific to Penney's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by boobledooble Good looking belt--too bad the buckle was so narrow the belt didn't fit through it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimsuper The flex to this belt makes it very comfortable
I like this braided belt because it fits my current lifestyle. Now I tend to wear more casual clothes after I retired. This belt works well with jean shorts, most other shorts in the dark color range, casual pants and jeans. It's a versatile belt and is particularly comfortable since it has some flex incorporated in the braided leather. It's a classic casual style that I really appreciate for it's simplicity, good looks and familiar appeal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grammalinnie Longer-wearing Belt
My husband loves the look of braided belts. He has purchased Dockers braided belts for years. We decided to try a Stafford one this time since the Dockers wear out within a year's time. The reason they wear so soon is that the prong of the buckle goes into the braided strand and the leather strips are not strong enough to take the stress. The Stafford belt has a leather tab sewn onto the braid so the buckle prong goes into a punched hole instead of just into the braided strands. We are pleased to report that it has outlasted a year now and is still going strong.
