Italian belt in black, heavily textured distressed leather. A very unique and stunning belt. Complete with one elegant nickel free belt buckle in choice of styles and colours.

Oh did we just casually say "Italian leather belt" when these were the ones that made us shriek with joy when we first saw these jeans belts specially made for us? The leather looks the amazing quality it is, will age like a dream and smells damn good too. This is the exact quality that we go all the way to Milan for and this Premium belt range features all nickel free belts too. Italian belts you will love owning for decades:

  • A Once Upon a Belt luxury belt made in Italy by highly skilled leather workers. These are Italian leather belts for men or women.
  • Let's talk leather! These 100% leather straps are made from the highest quality full grain Italian leather which is strong yet supple and will soften further with age. The leather is veg tanned and really beautiful. Just perfect in our opinion.
  • There are two finishes plain gorgeous grain (black, rich brown, cognac tan or dark navy) or distressed (black, dark brown, tan/brown or dark grey/taupe) which has lots of interesting texture plus shading in the last two colourways. See this Italian belt in all the colours available.
  • Sizes from small to XL / plus size so fitting 73-118cm/29-46.5" with a buckle.
  • Part of our interchangeable belts and buckles range this is a 38mm / 1.5" wide jeans belt strap with nickel free poppers/press studs for 38mm / 4cm interchangeable buckles – of which we have a huge choice!
  • Simply undo poppers to add or change over buckle on these Italian leather belts - it's easy. You may want 2 colours or styles of buckle or one for day and one for going out. If you choose to buy a buckle to go with this belt strap we will attach the buckle for you but see also our info / video on how to change a belt buckle.
  • If this colour or material or price point is not quite what you are looking for please see more jeans belt straps or ones sold as combination with buckle.

How to wear a jeans belt

A wardrobe staple is a great jeans belt. If the buckle is not too heavy, ladies can also wear them over dresses and longer tops - or why not wear one over a chunky longer cardigan. Ladies – see more ideas for wearing jeans belts.

How to measure a belt

General size advice

If you find you have ordered the wrong size, don't worry as you can return it for a refund or exchange (see returns tab for conditions) but it is really worth digging out the tape measure to save you extra postage costs and to fast track your road to satisfaction. Please ignore your naked vital statistics / mens trouser size / ladies dress size. Help is in our size guide video and below.

How we measure belts and belt straps

From first hole to last hole for most standard belts and for straps (where you choose the buckle) we always include about 1-2" for a standard buckle. Measurements given are approximate within a couple of cm and relate to same measurement as where you will wear it.

Only one size or no size shown?

Means we have only the one size left in this belt or it comes in one size only.

See info / video on how to measure yourself or an existing belt. We apologise for any shocks that urging you to measure yourself may bring, especially after Sunday lunch holiday periods!

Visa and MasterCard debit or credit payment cards accepted. Sorry no AMEX.

You can also place and pay for your order by phone if you are a UK customer. Orders are not placed until payment is successfully taken - anti-fraud checks are then performed before the order is dispatched.

  • Tax Free Shopping: Displayed prices for products include UK VAT (sales tax) and exclude delivery costs. VAT is not charged to non-EU countries and VAT-exempt places like the Channel Islands - to remove the VAT the delivery destination must be a non-EU country or 'Jersey' for example, not 'United Kingdom'. Local import charges may apply to non-EU countries.
  • All prices are charged in UK sterling at checkout. International customers may be charged a fee by their bank for a sterling purchase and/or use a different currency conversion rate to our approximation available by selecting the most familiar currency in the top right of the page.
