Recommended Best Way To Clean Your Belt Buckle

Montana Armor, our manufacturer’s trademark protective finish, can help prevent tarnishing. We recommend wiping down your piece with a dry, 100% cotton cloth. If needed, you may use mild soap and water and pat dry with a soft cloth.

We also suggest avoiding jewelry cleaners, silver cleaners, perfumes, lotions, make-up, treated polishing cloths, and hand sanitizers. Be sure to rinse off soap if used to clean and avoid soaking in water for too long. All of the above can damage the Montana Armor and allow tarnishing. To keep it in the best shape, store it away when not in use and put it on last when getting dressed.

How To Pair Your Belt Buckle With Other Western Accessories

A belt buckle is a small accessory but it can cause plenty of confusion when it comes to pairing it with other western accessories. But pairing your belt buckle with the other western accessories you're wearing is really rather simple. Here are three simple rules for making sure your belt buckle matches your other western accessories.

Match Your Shoes/Boots

Your belt buckle should match your shoes or boots. For example, if you're wearing ornate western boots adorned with sequins or silver studs, choose a matching, ornate silver belt buckle. Choose a less ornate belt buckle when wearing more casual western shoes such as Minnetonka moccasins or casual high top fringe boots.

Match the Finish of Your Other Accessories

The belt buckle you wear should match the finish of the other western accessories you are wearing like your hat, jewelry or watch. For example, if you're wearing a western hat with silver accents and a silver watch, choose a matching silver belt buckle.

Match Your Belt

Your belt buckle should match the type of belt you're wearing. If you are wearing a thin dress belt, choose a simple belt buckle that is not too shiny or flashy. For wider casual belts, larger, more complicated belt buckles can be worn.
