A belt is a staple piece in a wardrobe. Something worth investing in. We use a thick, natural, 11oz vegetable tanned leather that will age through the years to a beautiful dark caramel color. Our leather is sourced from a world-class American tannery that has been around since the 1800s. Each belt is not only cut by hand, but hand stitched using a traditional saddle-stitch - An age-old method that is stronger than the typical machine lock-stitch. Even the keeper is hand-sewn, not stapled like many. We fully back stitch the belts, which is most definitely excessive. The thread we use is a thick polyester cord which is incredibly strong and resistant to sun wear. The belt buckle is a tank-like, heavy stainless steel, so you don't have to worry about it rusting. In short, this is done right. And it's a piece you can count on.
