Comments about Cremieux Melange Belt:
Permanently reduced to 12.25, I figured I couldnt go wrong, even after paying the excessive 8.50 shipping charge. I actually bought two of these, which shipped for the same total, so 4.25 per belt was a little easier to swallow.I bought both the olive green melange, and the navy and white stripe (which was the last one in my size), and both are great looking. They are made of quality, heavyweight cotton canvas 1 12 inches wide, and finished on both ends with soft, saddle tan leather. The colors of the canvas straps are identical to the colors shown in the item descriptions. The D-rings are a smooth, satin nickle finish that is appropriate for the uber casual look of the belts.The size XL fits my 38 inch waist perfectly. Fastened, it leaves about 6-8 inches free, so I dont think it would fit anyone with a waist much larger than mine. It would probably fasten on a 40 inch waist, but the free end would be so short that it might look a little dorky. My only quibble is about the way they were packed for shipping. As you can imagine, two rolled up belts would easily fit into an 8 X 10 padded envelope. But for some reason, the decision was made to pack them loose (rather than rolled up and banded) in a box big enough for a bulky terry cloth robe. There was no padding of any type used to fill up all the extra space. Sliding around in the box during shipping didnt damage them, but it just seems to be a thoughtless way to pack them. I have been very pleased with all the Cremieux items Ive bought over the years, and these belts are no exception. I would buy them again in a heartbeat!
