^^^ Those Gamme Bleu are made by Thom Browne for Moncler, very pricey but it certainly brought some sophistication to the brand.

, we know, same here.
I appreciate the response and I think I have more to say but... I'd rather not..
I think people are getting the impression that I'm trolling or amazed at the prices you guys pay...
but I'm not... just inquiring about 1 specific item, but its ok, I guess I can live without knowing
I get what you are saying though, that there is a cheaper version and that LV just slapped their logo on that belt, it's too expensive for something that can't be seen and such. Honestly, even though I have not seen the belt in person, I don't think LV will skimp on the material they use on the belt and the craftsmanship. It's not exactly trying to be the army-esque, it is about style and fashion. Similar to the resurgence of work wear style in the past couple of years. Who would have thought plaid and heavy lugged boots would be a trend or a style most follow? The same with this, LV has taken the army belt and put their own twist to it and probably upgraded the quality as well. They added their own detail and name on it, they most likely manufactured it themselves as well.
About it being seen, I actually tuck most of my shirts in when possible so it will be seen. It's not jsut about displaying it or the logo though because as you mentioned, most will probably won't show their belts so I will go back to the quality and style. You won't have to worry about it getting messed up so easy and if anything happens, bring it to LV and they will try and fix it, hopefully with a smile and for free. Sure we can get a well made one from Kaufmans Army & Navy surplus store for authentic items the army and navy actually uses but again, if you want that look and design and detail and of course the name, then you'd have to go to LV. No practicality or reason, just because it is a want and not a need.
Ok, I won't drag the subject any further, I felt like I just wrote another thesis to get out of college.
