We decided to design something to pair with our great denim. The logical next step was the perfect belt. Here is the Gustin Classic Belt. It’s styled go perfectly with our raw denim - classic, tough and clean. Of course, just like our denim, our belt gets the same obsessive attention to craftsmanship and detail. It uses the finest vegetable tanned English bridle leather, which will age to become a beautiful golden brown over time. It’s a substantial 12oz weight and is sourced from a tannery in the USA from all domestic steer.
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. We’re super excited to make this belt in the Bay Area.
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.
