Vintage Vinyl Belts

The 1950s were the golden age of the vinyl or PVC belt. The plastic and the technique were ready after the war and the fashion starved public eager to adopt an exciting new material. New stylish designs and low prices made these lovely belts popular in the fifties. However, time would show that the once trendy belts were less durable than the traditional leather belt. Later, the newer PU material would prove stronger and allow for a more natural leather substitute. Even so, the original PVC belt will always remain attractive in a unique way that it shares with the traditional PVC raincoat. This listing tries to help us understand the peculiar charm of the plastic belt. There are quite a number of images below that represent different variations of a few basic styles.
New year, new belts. Shortly, there will be several very interesting belts listed here. Meanwhile, I have moved the not so new ones to their respective sections.
A new section with various belt scenes was added in an attempt to show these great belts in their original context.
