I agree, recently broke my jeans belt and it took a day trudging the high street and about 3 days on the Internet before I found something suitable.....(in a hideous shop I am not admitting to and totally overpriced).

I feel your pain.

I normally find mine in charity shops for this reason - they always have loads and there's usually something nice.

Got mine from Next, was so amazed to find something slim, nice buckle, no bling, and leather that I bought 2, one black and one brown. Were a bargain price too.

Go on etsy and commission exactly what you want. Not even that expensive.

JIGSAW have a lovely grey thin belt with little roundy studs on it. But it was a bit ££ so I bougt a cheapo copy from primark. But still might get Jiggers one

Uniqlo do good belts IIRC

Bloody fusspot

I agree too

H&M used to do nice but cheap ones, but they only have tat now. I got a lovely brown leather one from there 5 years ago and i still wear it most days.
