The next generation of 1.5" wide brown elastic belts are now in stock, so if you have been on the fence, now is the time to give them a try. While the 1.5" black stretch belts already went through a couple stages of improvement, the brown belts have now caught up. By way of explanation, black has been the fastest selling color, so that inventory sold through more quickly. With each new batch manufactured, incremental improvements to the style and functionality were made. Some changes may have gone unnoticed, for example adjusting the size and orientation of the interior label, whereas other modifications were more appreciable.
For this new batch of 1.5" wide brown elastic belts, four main improvements have been made:
- Dark Brown Color - the new strap is a darker shade of brown and lacks the reddish tint from before.
- Strap Keeper - one of the most-requested features, this built-in elastic band conveniently holds excess strap in place.
- Dog-Eared Strap Tip - this sturdier shape resists curling compared with a diagonally-cut strap tip.
- Newer Buckle - same proprietary buckle design, but features the more understated "Circle B" logo.
These improvements bring the new brown stretch belts up to par with our black ones. While we still have the original brown elastic belts in stock in some sizes, we will be shipping the new ones during the initial release and when requested by customers. Otherwise, we will ship the original brown version until all are sold out. With regards to the olive green belts, due to lower demand we do not currently plan to manufacture more. Therefore, if the green belts are still available in your size, you may want to order one now before that color goes out of stock for the foreseeable future. If you have questions or would like to make sure you receive one version of the brown belt or the other, please contact us via the phone number or email address provided at the bottom of this web page.
