The Heavyweight Belt was the first departure from our more standard belt offerings. This time we literally built it bigger than the last iteration. We're using the same natural veg-tanned natural leather that we've worked with in the past, but for these belts we're using a heavier 14oz hide. The natural leather starts out light, and will age to a beautiful golden brown over time. We're also cutting the belts wider than usual at 1.75 inches. This will easily be the most substantial belt you'll ever own.
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 hefty roller buckle with a nickel finish and it’s secured with two Chicago screws. Handmade in California.
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.
