Silver crocodile buckle goes with jeans, says style icon

Silver crocodile buckle goes with jeans, says style icon

When Arnaud Bamberger’s wife Carla sought a unique gift for her husband, she found it in our men’s jewellery catalogue: a masculine crocodile skin belt and silver buckle. Shopping for a husband who’s described as “an international icon of men’s style” (Finch’s Quarterly Review) must raise the stakes a bit.

As executive Chairman of Cartier UK, Mr. Bamberger has no shortage of reasons to dress up – handing over polo trophies with HRH Prince Charles being an occasional duty. But the ‘legendary London man about town’ does have reason to dress down on occasion. And that’s when the crocodile skin belt and crocodile buckle comes out.

“It is quite casual, so I wear it with jeans,” he told the Financial Times’ How to Spend It magazine.

Patrick Mavros himself wears the croc buckle with a favorite pair of dark brown khakis, or you could dress up a pair of black or gray slacks with the sterling silver collectible piece.

Featured in March’s Aesthete column, Bamberger said the belt and buckle were the the best gift he’s received recently. Go here to read Bamberger’s two part interview.

The Aesthete column features a roll call of tastemakers, with recent profiles of designer Anouska Hempel, shoe legend Manolo Blahnik, and fashion designer Alice Temperley.
