Fok,

Do you have a belt from Terry Dear? If not, you should get one. I have one a few years old in his ultra thick bridle leather/natural oak bark tanned and it is aging in an amazing and beautiful way.

Any pics? I can't imagine how a bridle leather belt really ages -- at least not in the sense of how harness or saddle leather age. Maybe Terry's stuff is different.

Maybe not bridle. Here's Terry's description of the belt in an e-mail:

The leather is slow-tanned in oak-bark tanning liquor over a period of 12 months. The thickness is 5.7-6.5mm (15-16oz). The buckles are hand-cast and hand-finished solid brass.

Terry's stuff is bridle. Mike over at Indigoshrimp used to rave about it, but I never saw photos showing how the leather aged in the way that other leathers age. I have bridle leather belts and like them a lot, but think of them as a much more "dressy" leather. I wear them with casual pants and sport coats or whatever. Saddle and harness leather gets used with jeans, and I like them for how they evolve over time. They look "rougher" in their evolution than bridle, if that's the right word. More workwearish, I guess.

Wouldn't that hurt the resale value?

Is that the same as space docking?

I'll get photos at some point and you can take a look.

This is a nice belt, but different. It won't really evolve or age in any noticeable way like the belts we are talking about will.

There is some seriously bad taste in really expensive watches on instagram (surprising I know). The best is when this one guy talks about watches and correlates it with art and how some people don't understand all while his taste is absolutely horrid. It's the best
