Black. Don’t be spooked, get it…you’ll love it.
Tip: They say to cut it 2 ” above your waist size…beings that it’s a personal preference about how much tail shows…I recommend you cut it another 2 inches longer the FIRST TIME (example: if you’re 36″ cut to “40) and see how it looks…you can always cut it shorter if desired.

Buckle ratchet works well.
More settings than a conventional belt.
Buckle looks attractive yet simple.
Belt can be cut more than one time to gradually custom fit it to your body.
Thin leather which is more comfortable than thick leather on the spine.
This belt will probably look better longer than a belt with holes in it where the leather cracks over time due to bending the belt back to buckle it.
Great solution for men with big round guts like mine who refuse to wear suspenders and are tortured by conventional belts.
The ratchet makes a slight noise. Pretty obvious in a quiet office.
But here is a trick to keeping it quiet:
When you stand up and need to tighten the belt, grab the belt with your right hand then suck gut and pull out on the buckle with your left hand to release the latch and at the same time feed the belt into the buckle with your right hand for the proper tightness then release the buckle so the ratchet will grab hold. A few minutes of practice and this will become second nature. To loosen the belt for sitting, simply pull out on the buckle to release the latch.
I wonder if the ratchet and leather will continue to grip well over time.
Suggestion for cutting the belt to size:
First sit down with your pants and belt on. Adjust the belt to your biggest, loosest comfortable setting. See how much excess leather extends past the buckle and pant loop where the belt excess ends up. Measure how much to cut off. Make sure you leave enough leather to grab onto when you stand up and want to tighten the belt. This may seem obvious but I will mention it anyway: cut the excess leather from the end that inserts into the belt teeth. Don’t cut off the tapered end. Read the directions. I went conservative the first time and only cut off a little bit. After wearing the belt for a half hour plus standing and sitting it became obvious how much more I needed to cut off. Fortunately, the belt design makes it easy to cut the belt more than once until you get it to your optimum length.
As a means of comparison I just ordered this other ratchet belt on Amazon from a competitor: Marino Men’s Genuine Leather Ratchet Dress Belt – Color: Gunblack Silver Open Buckle With Brown Leather. I think the Marino leather is slightly better quality but I prefer the Comfort Click buckle because it is slightly easier to loosen than the Marino.

A belt with holes tend to get ugly fairly quick, especially for someone like me that fluctuates in weight. I would expect this to stay looking sharp at least as long as the belts with holes. Seems like some quality was built in to this one.
I bought a brown one after finding the black one quite satisfactory. I don’t expect these to last forever, but should last long enough to be worth the price. Recommended.
