Prada Elastic Fabric + Saffiano calf leather belt

Prada Belt

Prada elasticated belt with steel Prada Milano logo buckle

Prada men's belt

This Prada elasticated fabric belt with Saffiano calf leather trim is available from your local Prada boutique or from the Prada website at €100. Typical understated Prada design. Featuring a brushed stainless steel buckle with the Prada Milano logo. Very practical and stylish. The belt is quite narrow at 3cm so best worn with formal trousers rather than jeans, unlike the Louis Vuitton Initiales belt.

The belt is available in various colours (the ever-stylish black version shown in the photo) to match any outfit.  An essential item.

Gucci Black Coated GG imprimé Wallet with leather interior

Gucci Wallet

Gucci Men's Billfold Wallet in black Imprime with coin compartment

Gucci Wallet Black Imprime
If you're in the market for a new wallet, this Gucci black GG imprimé with black leather trim/interior ($270 / €220 from the Gucci online store) features three card slots, a coin compartment, and two bill compartments.  This  coated fabric is very easy to maintain.  It has a shiny look, unmistakably Gucci and just wipes clean.  I have owned this wallet for around 8 months now and it still looks brand new.  Testament to Gucci's quality.

Similar in size to, for example, the Louis Vuitton Multiple Wallet, this wallet is also available in a variation without the coin compartment, and Gucci produce new color variations each season in the same imprimé fabric.

Dolce & Gabbana Nylon / Leather Messenger Bag (Fall / Winter 2009)

Dolce & Gabbana Messenger Bag

This Dolce and Gabbana nylon / leather messenger bag is from the Autumn / Winter 2009/10 collection, but the current 2010/2011 collection has some almost identical bags.  Very practical, room to fit in your mobile phone, 11.6" laptop or netbook (not quite enough room in there for a 13 inch laptop, unfortunately), wallet, and pretty much everything you may need day-to-day.

Its smaller size compared to the the Gucci imprime messenger bag or the Louis Vuitton Renzo messenger bag make it more practical and easier to carry.  I've had several other bags in the meantime, including a couple of Prada nylon messenger bags, but I just seem to keep coming back to this one, which is a good sign.
