Wearing a Belt With a Suit

There is much debate over whether or not one should wear a belt with a suit. In this blog, we’ll cover the advantages and disadvantages of wearing a belt with a suit so you can decide what look fits you best.


Suits were originally made to be worn without belts. Originally, all suits were custom made to fit by tailors, so there was no need for a belt, as the tailor took the right measurements that kept the pants around the waist by themselves. When mass production of suits began, these suits didn’t always fit right off the rack, so belts and belt loops were used to keep one’s pants up.

Wearing a belt has the advantage of adding an accessory to your outfit which you can use to show off some of your personal style. In addition, some view belt loops as out of place if they’re not being used. There are many options to choose from in dress belts, and leather belts never fail to exude a classy look.

However, you might want to consider the advantages of not wearing a belt. Going beltless gives a cleaner uninterrupted look to your suit and gives a slimming and heightening impression as well, because the vertical plane of the body isn’t being interrupted halfway through by a horizontal belt. There are situations where it is advisable not to wear a belt, such as when wearing a three piece suit, as a belt buckle would create a bulge in the waistcoat.
