I bought a couple of C.K. belts, and I am amazed at how badly they performed. They each lasted about 2 months of occasional use. The bonded (?) leather became unbonded, cracked, making white areas of cracking on the belts. One must have been designed by a retarded Chipmunk, and was probably tested by his younger brother! Yes - my point is that C.K. makes crap, and doesn't deserve much consideration. Dockers belts (and several other brands) have worn much, much better than C.K.

"bonded leather" is leather dust and bits, held together with some sort of glue.

I Am Not Making This Up. The Free Dictionary says:
Bonded Leather, or "Reconstituted Leather" is not really a true leather but a man-made material composed of 80% to 100% leather fibers (often waste scraps from leather tanneries or leather workshops). It consists of collagen fibers obtained from macerated hide pieces bonded together with latex binders constructed into a fibrous mat to create a look and feel similar or sometimes identical to that of genuine leather but at a fraction of the cost. Depending on the quality a man-made pattern is usually discernible as a "grain-like" look.
