Rated 3 out of 5 by cheryl Belt has nice feathers
After hunting for a belt for my husband I ordered this one as he is between sizes and basically has no hips. He needed a belt with a bit of elastic and wanted one that had actual holes for the tang of the belt to fit into. Surprisingly this belt fits nice and is a higher middle class style and quality. I purchased it in two colors (a black and brown) and the brown is rich enough that it looks pretty good for most occasions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by coach Belts are comfortable but do show wear a little faster than normal
The belts are comfortable and neat looking. I have been wearing them for a few years. The only dissatisfaction with them is the color sometimes wears off the vinyl weave edges in spots a little easier than a regular belt. In addtion, I have had the elastic cord, which is woven in the belt, break loose from its anchor point. You can still wear the belt but have to deal with tucking in the end or cutting it off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JCNY Excellent buy
But they seem a little short for me. Perhaps I am used to the longer JCP cargo shorts - which are a perfect length for me.

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 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 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 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.
