"Ok, I was really excited to receive this item it looked so cute both in the catalog and online so I took the plunge considering the fact that once you get into the hundred dollar price range for a belt, your options open up quite a bit. Well, that said, the craftsmanship on this belt is utterly below subpar. It is constructed of the thinnest sheepskin I have ever known and backed by an o/d green cotton material which has a double flap for what seems no apparent reason... Okaaaayyy?! The belt strap is wicked thin and gigantic on me. In the image they never show you this part. I'm guessing the model is always covering that part up with her hand or hiding it behind her back to s*cker you in. If you cinch everything to its smallest notch it's still 33.5", which for me falls at the top of my hips with a mile of extra belt that doesn't tuck in anywhere. Furthermore, I'm afraid the thin belt will just fall apart! They must have really pinned the heck out of this belt especially in the catalog. I bought this to go with the Nicole K Trapeze Dress. That model couldn't possibly have a natural waist of 33.5"! Really disappointed. The terrible thing is that now I have to pay return shipping for this piece garbage! btw, they don't let you use "inappropriate language" in your description which I'm guessing is because I originally said that this item 'sugs' only spelled the right way. :P"
