Step one:  Open the clamp at the end of the belt buckle.  You may need to insert a sturdy knife or screw driver to pry the clamp open.  Work it carefully so as not to scratch the leather beneath.  Your MADE in ITALY gold or silver tone belt buckle with open, leaving the slot free and clear for you to pull leather strap out.

Now in most cases you can simply turn the belt around and change your look by going from black to brown.  However, you might also have other color leather straps and as long as these straps are the same width as the open slot on the belt buckle, you can interchange them as many times or wasys as you would like.

Step Two: Extract the leather belt strap. Leave the clamp open and carefully slip the leather strap out, becareful not to scratch the strap on the open clamp. Select the new leather strap (or turn it over for the reversible color) and insert the leather strap.

Step Three: The last step is to close the clamp. It will require a little bit of pressure, if you are going to tap the clamp down with a small mallet, be sure to cover the belt buckle with a soft cloth so not to scratch it.

And wa – la you have now officially changed your look in three easy steps!
