Every year Santa impersonators and professional actors find themselves dressed as Jolly Old St. Nick at mall photo stations, and special events around the world. It’s one of those rare instances where a child can actually meet Mr. Claus in the flesh. So, the last thing you want is for an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction to scar a little one’s memories for life. Fortunately, Santa Belts like this one were invented for just such an occasion.
If you look at just about any picture depicting Jolly St. Nick, you will notice that he is wearing some type of black belt like this one to either hold up his pants or at least keep the midriff of his stuffed coat tightly closed. Not only is this wide-rimmed black belt iconic, but it is also a functional way to keep a pillow or other stuffing in place. It’s is made from high-quality polyester based materials that look a lot like real leather, without the high price and crisis of conscience that often come with using real animal-based products.
