This belt is about 1.75 inches wide and 3/16 inch thick (that’s about 3 stacked quarters).
SINGLE LAYER STYLE:
Cut from one layer of U.S. Full Grain Leather, this is best used for compact guns and lighter duty carry. It’s a very thick belt, around 3 U.S. quarters thick and makes for a great every day belt. This style will not have stitching, and does not have the option for reinforced cores.
To get an accurate size measurement use your current belt and place the holster on it in the way you would normally wear it. Note that IWB/concealed holsters typically require a longer belt, so measuring this way will account for that. Then please see the size chart photo for details on how to get your correct belt size by measuring your own belt. Don’t use pants or waist size as it will not work and we cannot exchange or refund for size.
We use an extremely thick thread typically used in the saddle and horse tack industry. It’s meant to be UV resistant and holds up well over time. Currently there are two color options, Natural – which is an off-white color and Black – which may be appropriate for the black colored belts if you prefer.
All buckles are made of solid brass and have an outer finish of your choice. Depending on the belt style and width you choose, certain options may not be available. Currently the black PVD buckles are only available in 1.5″ width belts.
On this belt, personalization will go on the back side on the tan liner next to the maker stamp or between the chicago screws on the backside of the belt. Each personalization will be surrounded by two diamond marks.
Note on the handmade process: Numerous tools and machines are used to make this belt, there may be the occasional marking on the leather. If it cuts into the leather, I always replace the piece before shipping out. Once in a while the sewing machine will ‘skip a stitch’ resulting in one slightly longer stitch about a fraction of a millimeter in length. In order to remedy this I cut that stitch out, and re-stitch about 3 stitches before and 3 after. This in turn makes it even stronger.
Discounts: Due to the amount of work required to make this type of belt it may not be eligible for the same discounts as other items in the shop.
