Nothing too fancy, but that's exactly what I was looking for: just a really good quality belt that will stand the test of time. Leather is of high quality, and typical AE construction/craftsmanship. The pictures are a little deceiving; the actual walnut color is much lighter, and there is no burnishing effect as it would appear from the pictures -- it is solid-colored throughout the belt, with no variation. I don't think this demands taking away stars, but rather just something to be aware of. On a side note, had some trouble with my order initially, and Zappos customer service took care of it lickity-split. Just can't say enough about the customer service -- love this company!
Previous reviewer is correct in stating that the shade of walnut in the pics is not true to real life. In fact, it is very different. To the point of me wondering whether it's even the same belt in the online pics. Otherwise I find nothing wrong with this belt, per se. But for this much money I was expecting more. For a casual belt I ended up keeping the Ariat Work. It's more substantial and clearly better quality while being much cheaper. If you can get on board with the triple stitching I highly recommend it. Returned the AE. As always, Zappos is amazing in every way.
