  1. It sounds like Flora, Fauna, and Merriwether in SLEEPING BEAUTY using their magic to argue over Princess Aurora's dress colour.

  2. Clever buckle designs, but they'll be true only in countries that follow the Red-Right-Returning convention.

    That means the Americas (except Greenland), Japan, North and South Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan, Hawaii, and...wait for it, Easter Island. (Aren't you glad you asked?)

  3. Green, however, the buckles are overdone IMO

  4. Pink... absolutely!

  5. The quality of those belts is excellent. I'd wear the pink in summer and the green in the cooler months. My casual choice is usually a multi-coloured Argentinian polo belt from Pampeano. Prince William has at least one too.
