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.

PackagingComes with bag sleeve, care info, authenticity info.

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.

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.

4 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.
