- Notice the shape of the belt tails (or ends) (what is in common)
- Concentrate to the kind of belts which have markings on the leather strap and which of them don’t.
- Where are these engravings or markings located (near the tails = bad) (no engravings = ok , engravings in the middle with stars = good )
Reversible belts tend to not have any engravings/markings on leather straps
Ferragamo puts details comparable to : where the belt was made (with one star) and serial number on its engravings on leather strap.
Pay close attention to how these markings look.
Quite often these engravings are ink stamps. Engraving or embossing the leather is sort of rare.
4. Look at the belt holes, the should be round and clean cut.
