Berluti Scenario Belt.

New from Berluti comes their first mixed material belt.  The brand has experimented with canvas, jute, and all varieties and colours of calf on the spectrum in it's footwear, small accessories and bags and luggage ranges, and so "la ceinture's" are the natural next category of good to get this treatment.

Made from woven canvas, with a multicoloured effect, it is currently available only in blue and white, for a decidedly naval feel.  Brushed brass hardware, palladium plated, and gunmetal finished, add a masculine air to this accessory.

The best bit about these mixed material products is they are always considerably less expensive than full calf, and generally more hardwearing when it comes to moisture.  This model for example costing only £280 compared to a minimum of £560 for calf Berluti belts.
