Well fitted trousers shouldn't need a belt. Bespoke for example wouldn't be worn with a belt as the fit should be 100%

Not that I personally think it's wrong as long as the belt coordinates with shoes and poss watch

These also have loops, which I may get removed as they fit OK with just the adjuster. But when the brand styles them with a belt in the lookbook I think its OK Laughing out loud

He was just asking for a justification as to why people would have an issue with it so I was giving him the 'GQ magazine perspective', not my own personal feelings you hormonal wasteman

Never understood not wearing a belt with a tailored suit.

It was an Italian fashion to wear belts with tailored suits; it used to be the case that in this country you'd wear suspenders to adjust your trousers, but failing that you need something with a bit of give. I think belts look better with suits imo.

cheapens the look imo, if you buy trousers that fit you shouldn't need them.

Anyone who doesn't wear a belt in my office is because they either forgot it, or can't afford one.

I think not wearing a belt is a bit circa 2005 call centre fashion, finished off with a duffer zip hoodie and a big pink tie knot.
