Belts can be more than just a functional clothing accessory that helps keep your pants up — they can also be a way for you to express your personal sense of style. And while belts come in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and materials, one the easiest ways to personalize a belt is to just add your own belt buckle. Of course, if you’re going to accessorize your belt with a new buckle, you’ll want to find one that truly expresses your own unique sense of taste and style. Here are seven quirky belt buckles that will definitely add some personality to any ensemble.
1. Belt Buckle Flask
Sometimes a man needs his belt buckle to do more than just keep his belt cinched. The Belt Buckle Flask is perfect for those special occasions when you want to keep a little liquid courage close at hand. It features a removable flask that will hold up to three ounces of your favorite spirit. And when you’re not sipping on it, the flask is held securely in place with a spring-loaded clasp.

2. Batman Belt Buckle
If there’s one superhero who should be holding up your pants, it’s Batman. After all, the dark knight is almost as famous for his gadget-packed utility belt as he is for his signature cape and cowl.
