"Just got this belt today and LOVE IT! I was a bit hesitant b/c of the other review, however, the color of the belt itself stays put after vigorous rubbing. The "rust" appearance on the studs/buckle is some sort of textured paint that when rubbed hard or scratched does transfer to my hands, but as a powder. I think normal wear will not be an issue at all. The leather is actually patent leather, hence the stiffness. The studs are securely fastened so I'm sure they'll hold out for the long haul. If you love vintage/We The Free...this is a great addition to your collection!"

Not Quite As I Imagined
"I am a big FP fan and I fell in love with this belt when I saw it online. I wanted a white, distressed leather belt with some flair, and this seemed perfect! When it came in the mail I was pretty bummed... it was really stiff and felt almost like vinyl on the outside. The "distressed" brown streaky appearance could actually be rubbed off... was it paint? I don't know. But if I wore it with white clothes I would be afraid of stains from the belt. And the buckle/metal loop thing was kinda cheap looking. It says "waist belt" and I wanted to wear it around my hips #~38"# so I got a large. I should've ordered a medium for a perfect fit. Generous 2 stars... because FP rarely flops and I love them."
