Buckle up: The best men’s belts to buy now

These accessories will keep you in the loop for the new season and beyond...

The humble belt is a cornerstone in any man’s wardrobe. Combining crucial function with sartorial flair, like a perfect white shirt or well-tailored jacket, a good belt can do wonders for an outfit. However, don’t think you can get away with a one-size-fits-all approach. A colourful woven number, for example, looks great with chinos on a summer day but in the boardroom with a three-piece? Not so much. Here’s our essential edit of the best men’s belts to keep in your arsenal this autumn.
