The Reign of the Rocker meets The Spirit of Steampunk.

I think this vintage 1980s Streets Ahead belt is fantastic! The quality of craftsmanship is so high. It may have been made in the 80s, but its look is so now. The belt has had a rockin' life (it can still ROCK) and has been priced accordingly. (It's a BARGAIN!)

Streets Ahead was founded in 1982 by David Sack. 'Streets Ahead' is a South African saying that means 'ahead of the pack'. The belts are made with the best leathers and hardware from Italy, Spain and the USA. The handcrafted belts are designed and produced--still--in California. I think that's AMAZING!

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia Find.

Condition: Fair. The belt has seen a lot of love. It still has plenty to give. Just don't expect perfection. The label is barely legible. (You can see it better in person; very difficult to photograph.) The label reads: Streets Ahead Santa Monica, California. Please see Photo 3. The flaws...there is wear on the buckle (goldtone loss). Please see Photo 4, pic to the left. There is also crinkling of the suede. Please see top right pic in Photo 4. And there is wear on the suede (it has been worn down/away) from usage. Please see bottom right pic in Photo 4. It was a top dollar belt in its day, sold at high end department stores and boutiques. It can be yours now, for a bottom dollar price with signs of love.


Length (from buckle to end): 31 1/2" with 5 holes.

Colors: BAD A** Black with Brazen Bronze, Go Go Gold, Gutsy Gunmetal Grey and Spirited Silver.

Packaging: The belt will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method. I love to combine shipping.

Smoke free home.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
