pampeano polo belt essentials: plain leather luxuries
There is something special about pieces that exude a quiet beauty. That is why our classic, plain leather belts are much loved perennials in our polo belt collection.
Understated luxuries such as these display a sense of taste and personal style. Simple can be deceiving. A high quality, plain piece elevates an outfit, and much thought and care goes into choosing items that exhibit classic style and elegance.
You have your choice of three vegetable tanned leathers, in tan, Havana brown and black. Our standard size is 3.5cm for the width, and each of the plain belts is also available in the skinny size, 2.5cm. Anyone who aspires to a minimalist wardrobe knows the value of beautifully crafted, simple pieces that are a pleasure to wear day in, day out.
The Abuelo is a wonderful choice for the paler colours of a Spring wardrobe; chinos, lighter denim and crisp light cottons will all be offset nicely against the tan leather. The beautiful, warm tones transport us to the golden light of a setting sun over sandy South American plains.
The Papa is a beautiful, rich dark brown. Our Havana brown leather is of the highest quality, and the craftsmanship of the belt is a fine example of a strong heritage of this kind of leatherwork, which can only be South American.
The Nieto is the height of subtle luxury, in a formal, jet black that is sleek and timeless. You can opt for an antique brass finish buckle or a buckle in shiny chrome. Whichever plain belt you are drawn to becomes an expression of your own individual aesthetic.
The wonderful thing about a pampeano polo belt is the way it becomes unique to its owner. Each of our polo belts are crafted by hand in one of our ateliers in South America. A-grade Argentinian leather is hand-selected for its unblemished high quality, and an antique brass finish buckle is stitched for the finishing touch. At your request we will hand-emboss up to three initials onto your belt loop, for a bespoke piece that is undeniably yours. As you continue to wear your belt, the thick but supple leather moulds to your shape and ages in a way that is unique to you. Like a passport of your travels, a belt from pampeano becomes a map of your memories and experiences, which are imprinted onto the leather with a distinctive patina that speaks of adventure.
