When we first started making belts, the design was a bit raw - built to break in as you wear it, and a little rough around the edges.
This version of the Classic Belt is more refined. We're using a Wicket & Craig English Bridle leather dyed to a perfect saddle tan color. It’s a medium-heavy 11oz weight.
We pay special attention to the finish as we do on all our products. Made here in the Bay Area, 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 nickel 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.
