- My belt has a slit on the side (see photos), where the strap goes through, what avoids unsightly overlap or uncomfortable bulge, including in the back. It also enables to keep the belt nice, flat and in place, as you move.
- Made to measure, for optimal fit
- Fully lined according to Haute Couture rules, specifically for each fabric, with the purpose of optimizing the look, the hold, the handfeel and the longevity.
- Without visible seam
- Side 1: japanese cotton crepe (Chirimen), floral pattern. Colors: blue, taupe, ochre, rust orange, lilac, grey, beige / sand.
