Top 5 Ways to Tighten Your Belt

Top 5 Ways to Tighten Your Belt
Americans have been sitting on their wallets as of late -- so much so that U.S. households have cut their debt burden to the lowest point since 2004. If no one's living above their means, though, the economy stagnates. If you must tighten your belt, we say make sure the belt your tightening is painstakingly crafted from premium materials and, ideally, expensive enough to give the average Groupon customer a nosebleed. Below we present five recent favorites, arranged according to how patriotically they're priced.
Deadstock Swedish Army Belt
$75
Horween x Leffot Elston Belt
$125
Cause and Effect Belt by Billy Moore
$150
Tender Co. S Buckle Oak Bark Leather Belt
$245
Basil Rucuk Minimal Belt
$368
Maison Martin Margiela O Artisanal Wooden Cummerbund Belt
$2020
(Taking this concept a few steps too far? Yes.)
