Review: Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé Leather Belt Bag

So I FINALLY got around to editing some videos! Thanks for waiting and following along. In this post, I'm sharing with you a review on the Gucci Belt Bag and how I managed to style it with the wrong belt size!


VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS

GG Marmont Quilted Leather Belt Bag

Price: $1099 USD

Dimensions - 7"W x 4.5"H x 2"D

Belt Size I Bought - 75mm / What I should have bought - 95mm

Side Note: On Gucci's site, they mention that sizing will differ based on where the belt is worn. I wish I paid attention and got a larger size so I could wear it crossbody. Since it was too late to return, I made my own modification and bought a belt extender instead. My waist size is 26 in. Refer to Gucci's belt size guide below for the best fit.

What can it hold?

  • Phone
  • AirPods
  • Card holder/ mini wallet
  • Keys
  • Lip Balm/Lipstick

 

Weight: It's very lightweight due to it's small size. Even with day to day contents, I have no weight issues.

Available Colors: Hibiscus Red Chevron Leather, Beige Chevron Leather, Black Chevron Leather, Pink Velvet, and Black Velvet and more as its gaining popularity.

Material/Hardware: Classic Gucci quilted style. The outside material is a buttery and soft leather and interior is 100% suede. The hardware is gold plated. Top zip closure. Adjustable belt closure.

 

There are Multiple ways to wear it:

  • Around waist - Classic Fanny
  • Crossbody 1 - For a more sporty look
  • Crossbody 2 (with ring modification) - For casual outings
  • Clutch - For dressy occasions. Wear the belt alone as an accent piece to your outfit

 

Care

I keep it packed away in it's bag sleeve and box after every wear.

Sharp nails or objects can and have marked the smooth leather on the bag. I try to be as careful as I can.

Try not to fill with too much, that may contribute to it losing shape.
