Using different colors, patterns, and textures are important parts of creating an outfit that looks great when paired together. Certain continuity of different elements on your outfit will help you
look always well put together and interesting at the same time. Managing your different accents in your outfit is a sign of style mastery. The good thing is, it’s easy to learn.

Distinguished gentlemen can benefit from the smart techniques of matching shoes with a proper belt and other accessories to create a harmonious, dapper look. And because belts are the larger, more prominent leather and metal accessory in an outfit, investing in a versatile and modular collection can greatly improve your whole appearance, in a cost-effective way in the long run.

    Super excited you made these belts

  2. Shane Kamal on July 26, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    I love it when he says "Dapper"

  3. John Beasley on July 26, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    I do that, the shoes, belt and watch band should match.nice video. thanks for sharing.

  4. Leonelson Clementi on July 26, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    After watching a video about belts,I really look forward to watch another video about suspenders.

  5. meganoodlesoupp on July 26, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Could you do a video of calling cards/business cards and other stationery?

  6. dj_fishwigy on July 26, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    My waist size fluctuates between 24-27 so most belts don’t actually fit until I cut them. I prefer suspenders.

  7. Tankado on July 26, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    After watching this I bought 15 belts for 3500€ total

  8. DeJuan McGuire on July 26, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    At 8:40 I thought this video might be sponsored by Anson! Those Fort Belvedere belts look great!

  9. jacklau89 on July 26, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    All of my suits and even odd trousers are bespoke that came with side adjusters and suspender buttons, thus as much as I endore these Fort Belvedere’s belt, there is little reason for me to purchase them 🙁 Perhaps, in one day, I’ll get them for my causal (aka low quality rtw) chinos…..

  10. Aeriel Ferguson on July 26, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Ik this vid is tailored to men but these are helpful to me as a woman too…..same principles apply to leather sandals belts watches and jewellry

  11. Checkmate9moves on July 26, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    I had to watch this 8 times just to be sure Sven doesn’t see me out in the street and call me a peasant.

  12. LubeNoob on July 26, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    I have a 27 inch waist, so the only belt I have is a black leather belt with removable buckle.

    I had to saw the belt short, as I conceal carry and it’s nearly impossible to find any belts in my size, let alone a belt sturdy enough to secure a holster concealed under a tucked shirt

  13. Adam W on July 26, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    I’ve never been a big fan of belts. One of the first things I learned to sew was removing the belt loops from pants. Less to think about when putting together an outfit.

  14. Tony Jules on July 26, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    I find it interesting that this….is not instinctive.

  15. fide kapaw on July 26, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Super excited you made these belts😎

  16. connorism6 on July 26, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Sven, you need some purple in that leather collection! 😛

  17. The Gent on July 26, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    2:52 May I ask what timepiece that is? It’s very elegant.

  18. Kristian Dillon on July 26, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Wouldn’t metal matching be easier if you tried to stick to one metal generally? For example, I personally like silver more than gold or rose gold. Could you do a video about the different metals/metal colors in menswear?

  19. Michel Jean «Lit et dit» on July 26, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Interesting video. Thanks. One question… you wear a tweed jacket and cotton trousers…. one is winter, the other summery style…. is there something to consider in matching both or could we just do it whitout questions?

  20. Son of Liberty on July 26, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Love your channel, thank you for all the great information, please keep up the great work. Thank you and God bless.

  21. Anil Jacob on July 26, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Why do u wear regular fit oversized pants?
    Go for a slim fit to enhance your footwear

  22. SteamPunk on July 26, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Complementary colors are a better alternative than trying an exact match, with the obvious exception of black.

  23. ipek tanrica on July 26, 2021 at 9:32 pm


  24. Ravi Peiris on July 26, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    I wasn’t aware of the belt buckle options, so I will go to your store and purchase a few, thank you for producing those……..decades overdue, you would think,

    Ravi Peiris M.D.

  25. Henry Steinmann on July 26, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Why not just wear suspenders ?

  26. The Kush Puppie on July 26, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    I can appreciate you may not smoke but a video suggestion how to smoke cigars for gentleman please?

  27. Desmond Ding on July 26, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    The best way is to skip the belt and go with side adjustments or braces. If i have to where a belt, I like the micro adjustment belt buckles a lot, they adjust quite well. Btw, Raphael, I think you can up your shoe game a bit more now. Frankly, those Ace Marks aren’t very well made or aesthetically pleasing comparing some better shoemakers at a similar price range.

  28. HERRENKASTE on July 26, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Very educational, as always. Thanks guys.

  29. vizvaz on July 26, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I own one suit, one par of dress shoes and have worn them twice durring past 4years. I work in construction so events that require such style and etiquette pop up very sendomly. But I have been following this channel for about two years and have enjoyed every video, learned a lot of things and implemented them in my own way. Believe it or not the same rules about fabrics and matching metals and accessories apply to every style if you want to look good. I have matching workbooks, workbelt and a watch strap.
    Thanks for the tips and best of luck.

  30. Sli on July 26, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I never went for Anson because of a few reviews from people i trust saying the quality is average but now that GG made some belts i will have to get a couple colors and buckles because its a brand i can trust without seeing reviews.

  31. Dillon Jeffares on July 26, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Great video and an often overlooked topic, but always the sign of a well dressed gentleman.

  32. Chiranjeev Singh on July 26, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    You got style man. I love watching you. I don’t clearly remember what u said but you were looking so good. 💓

  33. Ali Rizvi on July 26, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Beautiful Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso. Good choice, Sven Raphael!

  34. sergioreinert on July 26, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Tie for belt? That guy uses costumes..

  35. Lucky production on July 26, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Ich hätte da mal eine Frage. Mein zukünftiger Arbeitgeber hat einen casual friday wo es den Leuten gestattet ist in einem more casual look zu erscheinen. In der kleiderordnung ist nun angeben "Leder sneaker" kannst du mir ein beispiel dafür nennen ? Als denkst du zum Beispiel air force 1 wären okey ? Oder würdest du so etwas niemals tun?

  36. Countalma on July 26, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    All the outfits you’re wearing in this video look amazing!

  37. Lord Blackwood on July 26, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    That is fantastic that you are selling high quality belts now, it is so hard to find a belt that fits properly and is high quality. Personal I prefer side tabs with no belt loops on my trousers so I don’t have to wear a belt, unfortunately not many trousers have that unless you have something made Bespoke.

    Ich muss sagen das sie einen echt coolen Kanal haben

  40. Valasarius on July 26, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    I mostly wear 3 Peace Suits, so i rarely ever wear a belt

  41. ASU DOG on July 26, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    There’s only two kind of people wearing white belt, one who sucks in karate, and one who sucks in lifye 🤣

  42. David Salt on July 26, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    The best video of all of them. Thanks guys.

  43. Fighting Falcon on July 26, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    Can anyone tell me what make is the black rectangular watch please?

  44. Cogs Of My Cranium on July 26, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    My glasses have gold on them…should i try to match the metals in the belt i wonder?

  45. Steven Jonathan on July 26, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    this is so cool I feel like a kingsman

  46. Meet Patel on July 26, 2021 at 9:53 pm

  47. M.K. V.G. on July 26, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    My first thought was: I am wearing braces. My second thought was: leather loops havf to match.
    Congratulations on the belt system, great idea!

  48. Robert Thorn on July 26, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    Watch your gig line!

  49. smooth m on July 26, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    I found this YouTube channel for old people from 50.100 not for young people style colour

  50. Trizzi on July 26, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Hello fellow shoe enthusiasts. I have a question regarding an interesting pair of shoes I found online. They are from a brand called Tresham Shoemakers, they are goodyear welted (or so they say on the sole, although, from pictures, that is very likely to be true). They are a burgundy full brogue oxford, in a wide last. The insole also states that they are Made in England. They are currently marketed at a very low price on a vintage website. Has anyone heard of this shoe brand? I personally cannot find any bit of information online, aside from an old ebay listing.
