Arcade makes belts. They're stretchy and they work better than anything that's been wrapped around your waist before. There are little things in life that don't work as well as they should. One of those things is your belt. Holes punched in leather straps are a medieval era invention. Nylon webbing with aluminum clamps are a token of big brands slapping logos on cheaply made crap. Arcade belts were invented, designed and styled with the modern shredder in mind. Thank you!
