316L Stainless steel are the perfect choices utilized by many luxury brands in crafting belt buckles due to its high resistance to tarnishing and also scratching. A well made buckle can last for years up to decades, provided proper care is provided during this process. Viktor Alexander buckles comes with various options of IP Plating/ PVD plating that coats the surface from yellow gold, black rhodium to rose gold.
- Avoid hard knocks or rough surfaces that can easily scratch the belt surface, though stainless steel maybe resistant to scratches. Rough usage can still result in unattractive scratches on surfaces.
- Do not use harsh chemicals such as alcohol or acidic products to clean the buckles, just use warm water placed onto cotton cloths to wipe the surface to remove any dirt or grease trapped on the surface.
- Most IP/ PVD plating on the buckle can last up to 3-5 years depending on how you care for the buckle. Deep scratches can often remove plating and as such have to be returned to an authorized boutique or retailer for repairs.
- Should you have purchased more than 1 buckle for your belt, store your unused buckle in a clean dry box provided by the brand.
For any servicing or discolouration, contact your nearest authorized dealer or boutique. We will do our utmost to return any products sent for servicing between 6-8 weeks upon receiving the product.

To enjoy your bag or accessory for a long period of time and to preserve its natural characteristics, we recommend you pay attention to the following:-
- The finest materials should be handled with extra care like any other precious material by avoiding rough usage across its lifetime.
- In order to retain its original shape, it must not be over-filled especially with heavy items as it will also prevent damage to the shoulder strap, fasteners and clasps.
- You should avoid exposing contact with direct water or chemicals, which can potentially damage the leather, casing irreversible changes to the leather. Discolouration may occur when leather absorbs moisture and oils form your skin, please exercise additional care when using our leather products.
- With exposure to humidity, be sure to absorb any moisture immediately using a soft dry cloth. Do not wipe it vigorously but instead pad it with a soft cotton fabric.
- Avoid prolong exposure to direct sunlight or intense artificial heat as it may cause the colour of the leather to fade.
- Avoid contact with grease, cream, perfume and oil based make-up.
- Avoid contact with rough or abrasive materials that can damage the surface of the leather.
- In the event of stain, use only specialized cleaning products designed for leather goods. Alternatively, consider sending the bag for professional bag spa or leather specialist.
- Grease marks can be removed with unscented talcum powder. Put it on the grease spot, keep overnight and brush it off with a soft bristle brush.
- Minor scratches can potentially be removed by rubbing gently on the scratch using a circular movement and a clean dry finger.
- Clean metal parts of precious metal such as gold, palladium with chamois leather cleaner. They may tarnish over a prolonged period of time or exposure to harsh chemicals. You may also enquire assistance from your nearest boutique.
- “pony” leather should only be cleaned with a dry cloth or soft brush by brushing it in the same direction as the hair.
- Materials such as crocodile, lizard, python or ostrich and sensitive to light and abrasion. Please take special care and avoid storing in places with high heat or humidity.
Your leather goods especially bags come with a special dust pouch or bag for additional protection. You may also consider stuffing your bag with tissue paper and storing it upright in its cover. The tissue will assist in moisture absorption while keeping the bag in shape. Exercise extra care when not using the bag by ensuring the steel chains are not directly compressing on the surface of the leather. You could alternatively remove the chains and store it separately.

* please note that there are 3 holes punched on the belt, the hole closest to the buckle when the belt is worn on the waist represents the smallest possible option, each subsequent hole increment represents 2.5cm with the total option for sizes being up to 5cm.
We recommend always going for the first or second belt hole when selecting sizing according to your actual waist size. For example:-
Waist 91cm = Optimal belt size would be SIZE 95 (1st belt hole) but you could also wear SIZE 90 (3rd belt hole)
Waist 102cm = Optimal belt size would be SIZE 105 (1st belt hole), but you could also wear SIZE 100 (3rd belt hole)
If unsure, you may contact us to recommend the optimal sizing for you once you have provided us with your waist measurement.
