What Does Phil Wear?  Fashionable Suggestions from The Belt Shoppe’s Founder

Phil is the man who started it all here at The Belt Shoppe. If there’s one thing Phil knows, it’s belts! Anyone who browses our catalog will notice that the selection is diverse, with many styles, colors and materials to choose from. So which accessories would the man behind it all choose for his personal collection?

My Favorite Casual Accessories

Casual belts should be comfortable but still fashionable, eye-catching and capable of matching a variety of different outfits. With so many to choose from, it’s hard to find one that will work for you. I found that the handsome style of the Tommy Hilfiger canvas belt in khaki and navy fits the bill perfectly. I recommend pulling this one on with a pair of khakis and a polo in the spring and summer for a warm weather look that’s always in style.

If you prefer a pair of jeans, I also suggest the Danbury Buffalo two hole belt. I own this belt in black and brown so I can easily match it up with the shoes I wear. I can’t say enough good things about this unique leather belt. It is soft and supple and will last for years. I have been wearing my brown buffalo leather belt for five years or so now. It’s a timeless style and the quality is unparalleled for the price.

How I Complete My Suits and Dressy Attire

A well-dressed man should have a reliable belt for any occasion. I know the importance of a versatile wardrobe, which is why I also have a top pick to go with dress slacks. I choose either the Dockers full grain Italian leather belt in honey brown or the Tommy Hilfiger reversible dress belt in black or tan. Both styles have a very clean, smooth texture with a sleek buckle for a confident look that works whether you’re headed to an important meeting, job interview or conducting business with a client.

My Golf Belt Picks

I like to add more personality to my golf clothes with colorful silicone belts. These belts are wider for ultimate support but are also flexible which doesn’t bind when you are swinging your club. These belts also don’t stain my expensive golf slacks with running dye. Golfers will appreciate the fit and look, especially when they discover that silicone golf belts can last nearly forever and only require a little warm soapy water and a cloth to wash.

To keep things interesting, I like to choose from an assortment of silicone golf belts before hitting the green. Royal blue is my personal favorite, which I usually put on with lighter colored slacks or shorts. Sometimes I opt for a yellow or lime green belt if I am wearing a pair of black slacks or shorts.

Try my suggestions or come up with your own original style by browsing The Belt Shoppe’s enormous selection of silicone golf belts. There’s something from every part of the rainbow, including yellow, red, purple, grey, black, pink, white – even a reversible argyle silicone belt!
