A b.b. Simon belt will feature the company’s logo and size number on the belt’s metal buckle snap. These imprints are applied by a craftsman and are typically made from metallic ink. These imprints are not always perfect, and they will vary with different styles and models. In addition, vintage belts may have an indentation on the leather that is visible after the buckle snap is removed.
Some vintage belts are also available without a logo. These are usually vintage items, or ones that are at least 15 years old. In these cases, you might be able to find one that is made of a higher quality. This is especially important if you want a belt with more detail.
