Belt shopping is a pain. It’s often difficult to find something you like — in my case, as plain and free of ornamentation as possible — and that’s reasonably priced. The value of the time spent looking is often more than the cost of the belt.
Next time you find a belt like this, buy two of it.
That way, when your belt finally dies, you don’t have to go through this whole process again. Boom. Simple.
(This, of course, doesn’t apply to belts that are fashion accessories. Just the ones that hold up your pants.)
