Holding up one's trousers seems like a simple enough objective, but while belts have been around in one form or another since the Bronze Age, no one seems to have really nailed it. Enter La Boucle, the brainchild of two Belgium-based entrepreneurs that combines comfort, durability and style in a versatile one-size-fits-all design.
Frayed ends, loose buckles, holes not quite in the right place ... it's hard to find a belt that fits well, looks good, and lasts. La Boucle is stretchable and doesn't have holes so it fits all waist sizes perfectly – you just slide the prong through the weave at exactly the right spot. It's double stitched, won't get ruined by water, comes with a 7 year warranty, and its steel buckle will pass airport control, so it's ideal for travel and outdoor activities, too.
La Boucle's creators also have the health of environment in mind. Not only is it made from vegetable tanned leather, it's nickel-free, non-toxic, non-allergenic, and comes in personalized gift packaging made from recycled materials. On top of that, for each La Boucle sold one tree is planted through a partnership with NGO, WeForest.
La Boucle has already smashed its Kickstarter goal and will be available in early 2019, but early birds can still grab a bargain.
