Single Layer and Laminated Belts

Some belts were made with just a single layer of PVC but just as often this was reinforced with a backing layer by gluing or stitching it to the surface sheet. Ideally, both sheets were welded together but those examples have to wait for another section!

Double Stitched Belt

Red Simple Belt

New Neat belt with a thin red PVC surface bonded and stitched to a thicker PVC backing with a soft leather like surface. The handsome small buckle with a single pin is welded.

A leather backed belt with a brown PVC surface and a welded squarish buckle with a golden pin.

Single Layer Black Belt

This belt is a very simple one, just one layer of PVC. The typical buckle has two layers of PVC welded around a stamped metal shape. This looks great but prolonged and heavy wear will cause the plastic cover to break around the edges. The belt is also prone to breaking around the pin holes, even if reinforced by tape on the back. Nevertheless, it features the shiny black wideness that we all love, and the thin and soft material easily adapts to the waist of its proud wearer.
I may have bought this new in a department store in the seventies, so it could be the last example of the genuine PVC belt that was sold here.

Laminated Black Belt

The shiny black PVC is here laminated to a thicker foil with a velvet inside. A more durable design but not so supple as the previous example.

Laminated Black Belt

Another laminated belt, slightly thinner but rather stiff. This belt is wider in the middle than around the buckle.

Laminated Brown Belt

A thin brown laminated belt that features a nice rounded buckle with a gold colored pin and oval holes.

Laminated Blue Belt

In this belt the two layers has been stitched together around the edges. The PVC has a slightly textured surface.

Brown Laminated Belt

This brown laminated belt has a fake stitch around its edges, probably made by running a sewing machine needle without the thread along the edge. The large welded buckle has an uncommon shape and is held to the belt with two clips rather than the usual grommets.

Stitched Beige Belt

Another two-layer belt with a stitched edge. Off-white or light beige in color, it has a square buckle with a covered pin. The open end tapers slightly towards a blunt finish.

Gray Stitched Textile

This class of belt is backed with a textile-reinforced PVC that is stitched to the top layer. This gray sample from France has a contoured edge and a PVC-clad buckle.

Black Stitched Belt

A somewhat similar black belt that is a bit of a mystery pinwise. The part holding the buckle actually have two holes that might have had pins in them and the belt have six pin holes but these are quite far away from their usual place. My guess is that it originally had no pins but that someone added them later only to remove the probably crude contraptions again.

Red PVC Leather

This neat French belt features a leather backing glued to the PVC for added strength.

Black Leather Backed PVC Belt

Another leather backed PVC belt, stitched instead of glued. In medium width black it would have looked great on a slim waist. The buckle only have one large side and a long pin. Despite the leather backing, the plastic is broken in one of the holes.

Beige Leather Backed Belt

A beautiful beige belt with the slightly textured plastic attached to a leather backing with a decorative stitch. The large single buckle is clad in welded pvc, of course.

Red Leather Backed Belt

Another handsome leather backed belt with a decorative stitch. The PVC clad double buckle features two wide pins that go into unsual elongated holes.

Beige Leather Backed Belt

Yet another smooth leather backed beige belt with the typical PVC covered double buckle that makes it very similar to some of the stitched belts in the next section.

Only great minds can afford a simple style.
