What I like best about this belt, and about horsehide in general, is that it has so much natural variation in the hide. You can really see this in the last two pics. It's completely natural and has developed with wear. And now, my mandatory apology for crappy pics. I took the photos on a used Priority Mail box -- for added jankiness! The white of the box, though, is a bright, true white, so you can imagine that this belt looks even better IRL. And, of course, I could write sonatas about how wonderful working with Scott is. His customer service is outrageously good for a one man operation. Pics:
One thing to note, horsehide does not play well with margarine

Thanks, I love the bag (and somehow the rivets I replaced are holding out). Definitely would recommend his bags (I've even had leather hobbyists come up and ask me about the bag saying that it's really well done)
