On this Thanksgiving Eve…

Bill Lavin…we can reflect on all of the things we are thankful for: Family. Friends. Health. TARP. Jessica Alba. Small batch bourbon. Google Reader. In that order.

Bill Lavin, whose belts we have been carrying for years now, releases dozens, if not hundreds, of new belts every year. It’s tough for us to keep up. Worse yet, he doesn’t seem interested in taking the time to name his belts anymore. The early days brought belts with names like "Free-Wheelin’" or "Tribute to Buddha". If you look at his dressier belt line, none of the them have names, and we’re equally lazy when eager to launch new products. Hence, the romantic sounding 3-404x Belt (and others just as badly named in the Bill Lavin dress belt category). 

In our rush to get up a slew of new belts, I didn’t have time to think of a profound name for a new belt printed with scenes & excerpts from three of our nation’s founding documents (the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights). I called it the Tribute to Significant American Documents belt. Surely, there is a more patriotic or flattering name for a belt of this…significance.

So, as you reflect on this Thanksgiving, you might noodle a better name for this belt. Submit it as a comment here before midnight on Sunday. In return, we’ll thank the best submission with a $50 gift certificate to our site. Godspeed, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  • It should be called the
    “(founding) Fathers Make Sense (Cents) Belt”
    (at first glance it looks like a a dollar bill!)
    By the way, where does it say family members are ineligible. I’ll keep trying!
