I bought what I think is a leather belt from a thrift store recently (after I went vegan) because I had to have the belt for work (dress-code requirement) and I could not find any non-leather ones that I could wear to work, and there were NO immitation leather or non-leather belts available ANYWHERE that fit the dress code (it was all bubble-headed-bleach-blonde stuff. ICK). The belt wasn't marked as being leather or not, so I'm hoping it's immitation. This is the only type of situation where I'll buy leather. I got some no-leather shoes a month ago from a store in the mall and they're awesome!
