Hermes H Belt

SG is seriously adoring Hermes H belt after seeing gal pal with hers in black. When I looked at these two belts initially I couldn't tell the difference. Then I figure out one is 1.25 inch wide and the other, 1.65 inch wide.
The Constance (women's belt) is 1.65 inch wide and the price is $980. I don't like the color selection, only reversible in black/white.
The H belt from Belt Kits (SG thinks is great for both men and women) is 1.25 inch wide and costs $570. Wow, an extra .40 inch of leather can cost $420 extra, how does it work? Personally, I will buy belt kits for the color selection (comes in varietal of reversible colors) and the saving will buy me an extra Hermes silk scarf with $60 to spare for lunch or dinner. I think my way is savvier, what about you?

  11. I like the blue as well. But Hermes orange is really savvy too. All the colors are so beautiful. The good thing with belt kits is a gal can buy one buckle and belts in various color.

  14. that is a great find.

    i agree.

    definitely colour more than anything as one has to wear the purchase & if nothing they own matches the belt then it is wasted anyway.

  18. welll the constance buckle one (the white one) is made from an special type of leather; epsom leather.....

    while the 32mm (1.25inch) belts are made from box, togo or natural leather (chamonix is the natural one; the most common leather.,,) or you can find them also in croc or in ostrich at some hermes boutiques (: suede is also available....
