November. The nights are drawing in, the frost on your windscreen is making you late for work, and the heating bill isn't going down anytime soon. But it isn’t all bad; Autumn is one of the best times in the year for fashion. Snuggle up warm in a big woolen jumper, don the trench coat, and tie up the scarf - the possibilities are endless. And nothing screams rich, warm autumnal tones like luxury butter-soft leather: which happens to be pampeano’s speciality. Belts are the name of the game in this journal entry, and deciding which belt to wear on a cold November’s day.
We’ll start off with a couple of belts from pampeano’s exclusive Colección de Color - a range of classic polo belts with a contemporary design twist. Firstly, the rich, warm burgundy Vino. The colour is a staple of any Autumn wardrobe; it conjures images of a warm night in curled up by the fire with a glass of red wine. This is a belt inspired by adventure and a life spent enjoying the finer things in life. This is a luxurious statement of South American artisanal craftsmanship, straight from the land of asados with fine wines, infamous gaucho cowboys and dramatic sunsets that set the Andes alight with fiery colours.
The Marino belt doesn’t have to be an autumnal tone in itself; the deep blue Marino serves as a great contrast to a brown chino, or better - a gloriously cosy mustard turtleneck. As the nights are getting longer, wearing a belt inspired by the Argentine night sky seems perfectly fitting.
Both these belts are created using traditional techniques that have remained unchanged for generations, each one is handcrafted from natural materials therefore no two belts will ever be exactly alike, with a single, supple belt moulding to the shape of the owner and developing a unique patina in its surface over time.
Stand out from the crowd
For those who want to add excitement to this sometimes dreary season, consider a belt from our Classic Leather Polo Belt range.
The Colegio is a great choice, again inspired by the night sky which dazzles this time of year; the gold for the stars and the navy for the sky itself. This colourful addition to an outfit will definitely stand out, and the gold saddlery thread will surely make you feel like a star. This belt’s colour scheme fits right into a Christmas wardrobe too, which, don’t forget, is right around the corner.
For a lighter colour scheme, opt for the Paramo. The rich Havana brown leather allows the belt to blend in with clothes of Autumnal colouring, while the light coloured threads add a dash of vibrancy and excitement. The light colours would make a great contrasting accessory for a darker dress; we encourage using our belts outside the box, and wearing the belt around the middle to accessorise a dress is a great way to model a pampeano polo belt.
Also, consider the Audaz or the Ocaso - while October may be over, the bright orange and navy threads on Havana brown leather will definitely evoke images of jack-o-lanterns in doorways; a quintessentially autumnal image. It’s actually inspired by the gorgeous sunsets of La Pampa, designed with our signature pampa diamonds. It also is reminiscent of bonfire night, a great British tradition; with the Audaz or Ocaso you can stand out like a firework.
The Jefe also channels the autumnal look with a subtler style, with brown and navy threads completing the traditional style. This elegant belt would suit a more professional outfit - a suit perhaps - for a stylish addition to a day at work.

For the active, outdoors-loving dog, we suggest the Caza range of canine accessories; the vibrant greens almost symbolise the changing colours of the leaves, as well as the evergreens that are so common in the forests of Britain. pampeano offer a regular dog collar in the polo belt style, a dog lead (which bears a complimentary personalisation of up to five letters), and a lurcher collar suitable for more slender-necked dogs.
