Buying Guide – Golf Belts
This page gives you all the information you need to help you buy the right golf belt from Royal & Awesome. We only sell one belt so really this page will help you decide whether to buy that belt or take your belt buying power elsewhere. Or maybe you’re going to play things fast and loose (literally) and go without a belt altogether – ballsy! (literally?!)
Okay let’s get down to business.
Patterns and Colours:
Follow these simple rules and you won’t go too far wrong:
1. Pick a colour that complements your trousers (white works well with bright colours)
2. Wear shoes that match your belt
3. Don’t wear a patterned belt if you’re wearing patterned trousers
Buckles come in loads of different styles. For belts that you’re going to wear with formal trouser best to go for a small sleek metal buckle. For jeans you can go for something a bit chunkier and even those big cowboy belt buckles, which look pretty awesome at a hoedown or a hootenanny. Golf apparel is quite brand and logo heavy and the same is true of golf belts, so most major golf brands will have a buckle that matches their logo.
Leather belts are the most common, but you can also get synthetic ones, canvas ones and even snake skinned ones. We wanted to give you maximum style and durability with minimum cost so we went for the synthetic option.
Your belt needs to be long enough to go round your waist and then tuck under the first belt loop of your trousers. Lots of belts come in size increments so that you pick the size that best suits you. The Royal & Awesome belt is designed so that you can cut it to the perfect length and then hide the cut end in the buckle (see here[link to webpage that has the belt infographic]). The maximum length is 44 inch.
Formal belts are usually thinner and belts for jeans can be quite thick. The key thing is to buy a belt that will fit in the belt loops of your pants (complicated stuff this). You will be pleased and relieved to hear that the Royal & Awesome belt fits nicely through the belt loops of the Royal & Awesome trousers.
Price and Value:
I’ve always generally been annoyed at how expensive belts are. I mean, there isn’t too much to them and you’ve already forked out for a pair of trousers! For this reason we’ve made the Royal & Awesome belt nice and cheap (emphasis on the nice… but also cheap).
In the unlikely event that you aren’t 100% happy with your new belt you can return it to us for a full refund as long as you haven’t already cut it to length!
