The Big Review – Druh Belts & Buckles

Published

on

Players like Ian Poulter and Camilo Villegas have shown golfers that you don’t have to dress like your Grandpa when you’re on the course. The last few years has seen a real change in style, not just the plus fours and shirts and ties of yesteryear but in the replacement of the dreary beige and black. Bright colours and bold patterns are in and I don’t mean eye-bleeding tartan but proper stylish clothes.

The likes of J Lindberg, Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger make clothes that you might actually WANT to wear off the course and with these sharp clothes comes the accessories like hats, shoes and belts and buckles.

Quietly making waves on the European Tour is Druh Belts & Buckles with the likes of Robert Karlsson, David Howell and Paul McGinley all having been seen sporting them. In fact the brand claims that they have over 50 Asian golfers, 60 European golfers, two current Ryder Cup players and six major winners wearing the belts. One of those major winners would be John Daly who sports his own Lion’s head buckle. They are the brain child of Simon Hurd (the brand being his surname backwards), a Touring pro who has been on the European and Asian Tours for 14 years and it’s no surprise to find that he roomed with Ian Poulter for 2 years.

Druh Belts & Buckles were launched at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando earlier this year and look offer the discerning golfer a selection of stylish handmade leather and snakeskin belts in sumptuous classic and chic casual styles. Druh belts and buckles are firmly aimed at the top end of the market with the snakeskin retailing at US$150 and leather for $100. The snakeskins used in production are guaranteed not to come from protected species.

The designs vary from classic black and brown to more colorful pinks, turquoises and reds and are made from high-quality leather or snakeskin. The buckles come in brushed nickel, polished silver or gold and are easily interchanged so that you can mix and match to suit your outfit.

While they are obvious funky and stylish when you’ve taken one out of its stylish drawstring bag your first impression is how well made it is. The belts are just beautifully made from quality materials. What is noticeable about it is that, vivid colors aside, how elegant it is. As a regular of Saville Row, the area of London where you can barely move without bumping into world renown tailors like Gieves & Hawkes and Ozwald Boateng, Simon Hurd is obviously a fan of craftsmanship and it shows. With precise stitching and finishing these belts are not just about a name. The textures of the leather make even darker belts stand out. An effect that is even more noticeable with the snakeskin versions but you would have no problems wearing the more conservative colored ones with a suit. The buckles are also well made with the enamel fill looking great and feeling very durable.

So if you’re on the lookout for something new to hold your trousers up and feel like treating yourself, have a look at one of these.
