Been trying to reach Scott too. He replied to a few emails and gone MIA after that.

Mmm, I just received a couple of e-mails from him recently.
Try again soon?

he'll get back to you, if not after a few days, just forward him your last message. he gets periods I believe where he's just super busy.

so after considering all the fine leather artists here, I ordered a belt from Hollows b/c I already had a nice 9-10 oz belt and wanted my hands on a 14 oz one which he offered. It was a great decision as I received my belt today and it is fantastic. Here are some obligatory pics: top view of the belt, note how the part that is curved back is thinned to reduce the "bulge" that people sometimes get with thicker leather belts I normally don't like logos but requested it in this case as it went well with the design. thickness compared to an older 9-10 oz natural tan belt I bought on eBay from "BK Leathers" a few years ago. the old belt is going strong, but it's nice to have the upgrade. Thanks Hollows! P.S. I ordered the belt without a buckle and used one I already owned so don't bother Nicholas requesting that buckle

Here are some pics I took of the belts Scott (unlucky) made for me. These are very thick. Thanks again!



Very thick cowhide tan/brown


Very thick cowhide blue dye


Not as thick as the others. Cowhide waxy black harness. The leather feels wet. More on the leather here:

i got 2 belts in the pipeline for more than a month nw. about 2 weeks from order date he emailed [28MAR] that the "Moser" leather was no longer available. but, he got the veg tanned Wickett&Graig harness stuffed @the tannery [for sub] which he can make the follwing day, if i wanted. i replied the same day to give the greenlight... never read from him since .



anyway, to temporarily assuage my "leather" pangs, here's some evo of the Horween Horsehide Mids__ 16mos old.***nvm the concho, the silver replacement broke, so had to slap the original back on, but got my eyes peeled for a new one.

^^ I waited to almost 2 months for a belt and finally Scott get it done, it's shipped so should be here soon. Spec: 17oz veg tan from same tannery for 'Joe Hill' belt project, dyed in Navy blue. I'm going to put KC's buckle on it. Anyway, I had 2 belts previously made by Scott, one took less than a week and the other took about 3 weeks from first conversation to delivery.

Can anyone reccomend someone who makes run of the mill (as in plain) natural belts in a good leather but no more than 9oz? 8-9oz is a perfect width for me.

so, since i'm 1.5 mos in = order dropping in the next couple of weeks... ie, @current pace & condition. getting some leather done by Scott is like scouting for which point of the river to cross

fabulous belt, btw. i'm going for a W&C natural veg tan harness & a double Horween HH in eggplant x black edge stitching.

Some very nice unlucky leathers in this thread!
IIIrd, once again, nice evo

The first time I commissioned Scott for leather goods, the turn around for a belt was 2 days, and a bag was 1 week.
I think over the past year (and especially after the Joe Hill project) interest in his work has significantly grown? He mentioned he might have to hire a helper if orders come in at the current rate.

Anyway, from my convos with him, I think orders will come round more quickly in around a months time

I just received a belt from unlucky. I first ordered from him several years back when he first started, his email responses are a bit slower now but product quality is up (neater stitching) and prices are just as reasonable.

Those Hollows a few posts back look really awesome. Think I'm going to get a natural and black belt from there.

How much customization is allowed? Can I get, say, a gunmetal buckle?
post #360 of 524
most of the belt makers here have only a limited supply of buckles, like 6-10 styles which are pretty standard. I don't believe that finding unique buckles is a good use of their time. They can all however make the belts with snaps or chicago screws so that you can change the buckle out for anything you find on your own provided it's the right size for the belt. GL.
