We decided to design something to pair with our great denim. The logical next step was the perfect belt. Our first belt was raw - built to break in as you wear it, and a little rough around the edges.
This version of the Classic Belt starts a little more refined. It's still made in the Bay Area, and uses the same craftsmanship, but instead of the natural leather, we've moved to a Wicket & Craig English Bridle leather dyed to a rich black color. The natural base is still visible underneath the burnished edges which gives it a subtle contrasting detail. It’s a medium-heavy 11oz weight.
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 solid brass center bar buckle that gets tumbled to subtly tarnish the nickle finish. It’s secured with two solid brass rivets that are hand pounded to give them a unique feel and profile.
If you look around, belts of this quality and design are typically $100 to $150. If we had to sell at retail and guess which style you wanted, we would be stuck doing the same. Fortunately we’re not, and that means you get a top quality product for a radical price.
