Over the years we've produced a lot of different belt styles from the heavyweight to the simple, but a bit of color is what sets these belts apart of the rest.
Horween's Illini Latigo leather brings us the ability to offer you color while preserving the character of a full grain leather. The leather is hot liquored then chrome and vegetable tanned making it both supple and strong. It is then aniline dyed giving the leather its rich color. As a full grain leather, the surface of the hide stays intact, displaying the hide's natural beauty.
The color we're using for this belt is russet, a deep brownish-red hue. The natural oils in the belts allow for some pull-up characteristics causing the leather to lighten in places where the belt bends and folds.
We pay special attention to the finish as we do on all our products. The edges are beveled and edged, and the belt is finished with a traditional English point. We complete the look with the use of a solid brass roller buckle and rivets.
If you look around, belts of this quality and design are typically $120 to $170. 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 wonderful price.
