Today, men mostly wear belts out of necessity; whereas, women mostly wear belts for fashion. Belts for men have traditionally been either black or brown, between 28-32 mm wide, and with a buckle that usually is made of metal and does not stand out. Belt loops on pants weren’t invented until the 1930s, which made belts more popular than ever. Belt materials have run the gamut as well, from leather to mostly metal even in the 1960s. However, by the 1990s, belt manufacturers had figured out what was popular and wanted by consumer so belts all began to look and be made the same. These belts were medium-sized, neutral-colored with a metal belt buckle that was not gaudy.
That being said, huge belt buckles are still a fashion statement, especially popular with cowboys and in the South. Belts are also awards, like in boxing, martial arts, and wrestling where people compete for belts as the prize. Klik Belt uses the COBRA® belt buckle for all of our belts because we needed a belt buckle that was strong, reliable, safe, secure, and stylish. Made from the same aluminum that the aerospace industry uses to make commercial airlines, fighter jets, and space shuttles, the metal in our COBRA® belt buckles is strong and lightweight. Designed for everyday use and wear and tear, our Klik belts and COBRA® belt buckles are easy to put on, fit through standard belt loops, and one secured, will not come undone.
Nowadays, belts come in all colors, such as those sold by Klik Belts and for all purposes. They are more comfortable to wear for long periods of time, and custom belts have become popular for those who need to carry specialty items. For example, law enforcement needs belts that are heavy duty belts that can carry a holster and a gun. Hence, heavy duty belts, and leather gun belts, such as those offered by Klik Belts, have become popular and useful.
