Second Quality belts are made from straps which exhibit minor aesthetic imperfections such as surface wrinkles that do not affect the durability. These are available in limited quantity from time to time.

Please supply the measurement of your current belt from the base of the buckle to the most used hole when ordering.

This belt is constructed from the finest materials in a quick and efficient manner for maximum value. If you are looking for something more refined have a look here:

The belt is constructed from Hermann Oak Old World Harness Extra Heavy leather in about 15-20 oz. weight. The straps vary between the hides and generally are in the 6-8mm range. The leather is made from US cattle using a 100 year old recipe which has proven itself to stand the test of time. A truly remarkable material that I am proud to work with.

The hardware consists of solid USA made copper rivets and a Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Roller Buckle. The rivets are not inexpensive double sided rivets which are prone to failure after several years but authentic rivets which require skill to hand hammer into place. This belt is made for your grand kids grand kids to use. The buckle is very stout and the only commercially available buckle I know of that fits thick leather straps well. It is solid stainless steel and is not plated in anyway. I have one that I have been using for 8 years that still looks new.

I advise a maintenance program which advocates hanging the belt to dry after a hard day of work as opposed to leaving it on the sweaty pants. I advocate a light coat of pure neatsfoot oil when the leather appears dry on the backside. I advocate sealing in the oil with a wax based conditioner. The more often you wax it the longer it will last. With proper care your belt will sooner be in a museum than a landfill.


What people are saying:

"Magnificent workmanship & a superb piece of leather. I doubt you'll find a belt of this quality anywhere else."

"Bill has made me a belt of truly superb quality and style. The leather looks and feels great. It's very thick indeed, but comfortable to wear. The buckle too, is really solid, and looks elegant. I can't see how a belt can be made any better. Thanks Bill."

This is a proper tool to enhance your life not something designed to fall apart and waste your valuable resources.

Belt is tailor fitted. Please measure from where the leather folds over the buckle to the most commonly used hole. I will add a nominal measurement to accommodate for the thickness of the leather. Just lay the belt flat on the ground and measure. Spacing is 3/4" for comfort with 7 holes but may be customized.

Leather thickness is 6+mm and is Artisan quality harness leather which has traditionally been used for applications where durability is absolutely essential to life and limb. Nothing sold in "box" stores has ever been made from harness leather. Chances are you have never seen or felt leather of this quality unless you own a vintage horse saddle or vintage linesmen belt.

Would be an outstanding 3rd Anniversary gift.
