If you mean one of those sterling buckles you use with a strap, I wouldn't, but it isn't because of a clashing metals issue. It is because I find those belts sort of "business dressy," the sort of thing you wear into the board room with a subtly chalk striped navy suit, well polished black cap toes, a broadcloth shirt with a spread collar and French cuffs, a sophisticated tie such as an Hermes, and a thin gold watch like a Piaget or a Breguet. I like blazers with blue or pink OCBDs, surcingle belts, and bright repp stripes. I find blazers very comfy and casual while, ironically, remaining dressy enough to meet grandmother for lunch In some snooty tea room. I am much more bothered by mixing levels of formality than I am mixing metals. My plain gold wedding ring, never removed in 47 years, will just have to clash with platinum studs.

Predictable.
I realize that posting the following picture is, for you, akin to holding a cross to a vampire, but I thought I'd do it anyway... View attachment 93244
in the fifties and sixties I always had three button jackets, but they were usually cut so that at least the top two could be buttoned, sometimes the bottom one as well, without rumpling anything.
