GATOR GOODNESS: Belts are all over the place this season, and men and women alike can pick up a wide variety of styles and colors for a few bucks a pop. However, the downside to cheap cinch-ware is that their price points begin to show in their wear and tear after just a few uses. Invest in a beautiful leather belt that will last a lifetime with a design from local craftsman Peter Hoffman. For over 20 years, he's worked with single-piece skins and leathers to make accessories that look, feel and wear like nothing else. For one example of his fine craftsmanship, check out the El Rey sterling silver and ruby skull buckle along with the Radius women's alligator belt in one of 15 colors. GET IT: All together for $3,500. Peter Hoffman Design, (858) 775-4916.
