The Horween California Belt takes our most popular belt and adds a unique finish that you won't find anywhere else.
This belt is a departure from our past offerings. As a company, we’re proud of our California heritage, and we wanted to showcase that here. Using vintage plates from the 1970’s with an eighty year old printing press machine, we’re able to emboss these belts with a pretty slick design incorporating our roots. Accentuating the California stamp are reminders of the place we call home - the mountains of Yosemite from which we’ve watched the sunrise to the towering redwoods we’ve looked up to while hiking. We love the feelings this design evokes and we think you will too.
We start with a 100% vegetable tanned horsehide leather from Horween. These are strips cut from just above the "shell" of the horse (where shell cordovan comes from). Although this leather is thinner than most single layer belts, this horsehide is extremely dense and has almost no stretch to it. This unique thinner, stronger leather makes for a durable, long lasting belt without the bulk of a heavier belt.
Rather than keeping the leather natural on these, we're lightly hand-oiling them to bring out the richness in the tan color of the leather. We pay special attention to the finish as we do on all our products. The strap is edged, burnished with beeswax, and finished with a traditional English point. We use a custom-made solid brass center bar buckle that gets tumbled to subtly tarnish the nickel finish. It’s secured with two solid rivets, and the back of the belt is stamped with both a Gustin and a Horween stamp.
Fit
Seven sizes available. Measured from buckle center to middle holes of five. Measure your current belt to pick the best size, but as a "rule of thumb" typically this is 2-3 sizes up from your Gustin pant size.

What Customers Are Saying
"So grateful for this brand! Love the fit, finish, and quality of everything I've ever bought from here. Moreover, the pricing enables people like me to have access to quality goods which are often outside of the reach of the most working people."
-Joshua C. | Verified Buyer
"I really love Gustin. I just don't think I'd choose another brand at any price point. And I love watching for new products/return of old favs. But a very important part of the experience is the great customer service."
-Keith P. | Verified Buyer
"About a year ago, a coworker introduced me to Gustin (he rocks some of your pants to the office on the regular) and I have been watching the releases ever since. About three months ago, I finally backed a campaign. Since then, I have been so happy with all the pieces I have received."
