Gili Leather Obi Belt - Any Similar Belts Less Pricey?

[ Edited ]

I recently bought the Gili Obi Belt.  Love it, but expensive.  Are there any other similar belts like the Obi but less expensive?  

 

@lolakimono

Since your our Q personal shopper 😉, can you find something?  Thx!

Hi,

I found two already for Chi-town.  One is from L&T (although it was on sale, so maybe it's not there) and the other was from Soft Surroundings.  Did you check either of those places?

No, I didn't see your posts to Chi-town.  I'll check L&T and Soft Surroundings.

There are quite a few styles and colors offered on Etsy.

 

Good Luck.

@Himi lover- Yes, @lolakimono did find 2 good options. Here is the link to that thread:

I have the GILI Obi belt in black, love it-excellent design & quality.  What is esp nice from a design aspect, the GILI one has the double strip of leather to give it more structure so it stays flat and doesn't curl. I have some other single strip obi belts that tend to collapse or curl.

 

I decided to wait before buying another one-want the tan or cognac color. Bought several new handbags & skin care instead Woman Tongue

 

GILI Jill said they are working on new obi belt designs so maybe we will luck out & have the opportunity to buy the existing stock at a clearance or lower price. Please post if you find any other decent options.

I've made note of this before.  Check out amazon.com - there are tons of obi belts, some leather, tons of faux in tons of designs and colors for dirt c heap prices too.  If I were in the market, this is where I'd be buying obi's.

I ended up buying this one at Lord & Taylor, $68.  I'll check The other sites mentioned.  I'll hold out too for perhaps a lower price on the GILI if they come out with new ones or even an "as is" GILI belt.  I bought an "as is" GILI handbag in denim color and it was perfect.  I'd also like to get a patterned belt.  I'll keep in mind the double leather type.  I'll see how this belt works.

I must say-- when l just saw this, l had to laugh at the way it's presented in this photo. It looks like a blood pressure cuff, lol. They could have shown it in a more flattering way, especially since it's pricey.
