"This belt, although not made of real leather, looks like a real leather belt. It is basically a very simple belt with brass/gold-tone studs across the front only. I have both the black and the ivory one. These belts are great for times when you want something simple but a little noticeable. Works great when you tuck just the front of your top in, which allows the studs to show. I found this belt to be much easier to get on and off than the belt with studs all around it ( another FP skinny belt that I have). This belt also looks great around dresses. So, although I prefer to wear only leather belts because I am a bit of a leather snob, these are great, inexpensive go-to belts for every day wear. They also make a great inexpensive gift. I would recommend these to anyone."
