Unfortunately there are a LOT of sub-quality belts imported for making quick cash at malls or markets - cheap leather at best and vinyl-wrapped fibre and cardboard at worst (I kid you not!).
Sadly no where is this more obvious than with studded belts.
This solid leather belt is constructed from a single piece of 8 to 9 oz full-grain Italian cowhide, dyed through for extra resilience from scratches and gouges, and sealed with a protective coating of wax prior to studding. Unlike the laminated, bonded, aggregate, or simply fake "genuine leather" belts you find in all department stores and malls, a real, solid leather belt can last decades with proper care - that's why companies generally don't make them anymore, they last too long and they want to sell you another one! Like you we're sick of vinyl filled with dryer fluff being labelled as leather, and we make our belts with longevity in mind. Our studs are folded back into the leather, unlike commercial studded belts which are simply folded over (causing them to fall out very easily).
We also use natural treatments on the leather, which is tanned using oak bark, meaning that from start to finish our belts are made using environmentally-responsible and non-toxic methods and materials. Our metal components are also almost exclusively made in Canada or the US, ensuring that we are supporting regulated working conditions and fair wages - and not getting pot metal from China!
This is our standard width (1.5"), and should fit all blue jeans and some dress pant loops, although you may wish to measure the belt loops on your intended pants to confirm they can accommodate it. The buckle shown is included with the belt and is attached with snaps not rivets, which makes swapping in and out custom buckles easy.
PLEASE NOTE BEFORE PURCHASING
Typically the best method to gauge your belt size, at least in North America, is to take your pant size and go up by two inches - so if you wear a 34" pant you'll want a 36" belt. If you have an odd-sized pant measurement, such as 33", we would recommend defaulting to a size three inches up rather than one (so a 33" pant would use a 36" belt). If you are unsure of your belt size please include your hip or waist measurement from where you wear your pants, or measure from the base of the buckle to the hole you are using on an existing belt that fits. Be careful not to rely on the listed measurement of old belts or jeans, as these can often stretch over time.
If you require a size larger or smaller than the listed options, please contact us to confirm availability of appropriate leather before purchasing.
This belt is made to order, so please allow for a production time of up to one week.
