15. 1017 ALYX 9SM Webbing Belt

You might be familiar with Alyx if you’re a Drake fan (he gives the brand a shoutout in “Toosie Slide”), but for those who don’t, the brand is known for its love of hard buckles and tactical-like construction. Their webbing belt is a perfect example; the belt fastens with a highly durable buckle and looks like something the Rock would wear in a Fast and Furious movie.
