Comments about Johnston & Murphy Smooth Basic Belt:
The picture made this belt appear more burgundy in color and glossy in finish than I feel is representative of what I received. I actually thought I had received the wrong color until I checked the packing list. The belt I received appeared to me to be a few shades lighter than a dark brown.
I returned it to the a Dillard's store location and happily exchanged it for a different belt. The associate at the store helped to show me that it was burgundy by holding it up to the display light by the shoes, but to be honest I want a burgundy belt that looks burgundy in just about any lighting.
I don't fault Dillard's for the color of the belt; however, I wish they would source items that are a little more representative of their true color or at least try to reduce the intensity of the lighting when they take pictures of the product so that you can see what the item will look like in a more natural light.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
