Generally when you think of showing off a graphic design, such as graffiti, comics, or abstract art, the first thing that comes to mind is a T-shirt. But for Jon Wye, a D.C.-based artist, it’s all about the belt: vegetable-tanned leathers with a stainless steel buckle. Wye turns each belt into his canvas where vivid, often painterly designs are put on using a “super-secret,” tattoo-style transfer. Some are highly stylized, other more abstract, like this Acid Drops belt which goes with just about anything.

Retail: $65
