CALIFORNIA BELTS -- BUSINESS WEAR
Marcopolini: Campbell-based Marcopolini imports high-quality, hand-made leather goods from Italy, including some beautiful belts. I own a Marcopolini key wallet (which, for those who don’t know, is a keychain that stows your keys inside a coin-purse-like wallet, so your keys don’t punch holes in your pockets). It is extremely well made, and its leather keeps looking better as it ages.
Glaser Designs: San Francisco-based makes belts to order for "executive travelers," which I think means rich people who spend a lot of time on planes.
Jaqet: Los Angeles-based Jaqet makes simple, clean-lined handmade-in-California leather goods, including belts.
