Is there a way to make a pretty clean new leather belt look more worn/distressed rapidly?

hmmm I'll try it, but I don't know if it'll work, it's a really cheap belt from the spanish shop Pull and Bear

This may sound obscure at first, but you can take the belt off and go whip a tree with it. It will leave all sorts of marks on the leather.

It will in no way leave "natural" looking wear marks on the leather…but I'm a firm believer in there being no real substitute for actual wear over time.
