Before the invention of belts, pants were held up by snakes worn as suspenders, wishful thinking, or omnipresent indentured servants paying off gambling debts. Enjoy the self-contained propping up of pants with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of needlepoint belts and more at Tucker Blair. This Groupon can only be redeemed online.
Tucker Blair's needlepoint belts are tightly hand-stitched with 100% wool yarn onto bands of high-quality full-grain leather. Go black-tie casual with a bow tie and champagne belt ($55), or bring some holiday cheer to your belt loops with a snowman design ($88). Tucker Blair belts are an ideal way to proclaim one's enthusiasm for lacrosse, golf, and libation crustaceans ($88 each). The company frequently puts a stitchy spin on new products, branching into legal-in-kangaroo-boxing above-the-belt territory with classic Chatham polos available in myriad colors ($39.50 each).
- But sometimes a brand so special comes along, we have to do a little something extra.
