I've had pleather belts that lasted for years, and leather belts that didn't. Quality can be unpredictable.

1) Try on random manmade belts at T.J Maxx, Goodwill, or whatever's available to you. I've found some of my best belts this way. At thrift stores, it's easy for the really nice belts to get lost in the jumble of tattered old ones, so search thoroughly.

If that fails...

2) Consider a different material. Could you get a cute canvas belt? One made from bike inner tubes? Nylon seatbelt webbing? I used to have a quilted satin belt, of all things.

Here are some positive PPK reviews for Couch products:

A google search for "best vegan belts" turned up some good options, especially if you're looking for plain brown or black.

These are inexpensive, comfortable, and vegan:

...they're also East German, so there's the thing with wearing the emblem of a dead Communist country, but I'm cool with that. And I assume it's unisex. I dunno.

It is exactly wide enough to fit in the belt loops of my jeans.

Ha! My old boyfriend always wore a DDR jacket. I didn't realize what it stood for at first, so I'm guessing not too many people will recognize the emblem on your belt buckle. Good price!
