Cons:1) Made in China. 2) Leather is of the cheapest quality (probably not cowhide). 3) The cheap leather smellsmlike rotten fish. 4) You and your clothes smell like rotten fish after you wear it. 5) Multiple cleanings with leather cleaner cannot remove the stench. 6) threw the belt away, and now I am stuck with a $45 buckle. 7) This site is a douchebag for even selling this.
