AFAIK skirting leathers are notoriously thick. Siegel x Wicked Craig collab are probably the best skirting leather around.

I love Wickett & Craig's skirting. Had a belt made for me from a 15 oz hide earlier this year. http://www.wickett-craig.com/pricing.html Comes in lighter weights too. Sorry for derailing thread, would love to see more pics of the KMW belts and bag. Macro's of the leather grain and construct details would be awesome Edit: Here is a simple flow-chart from Hermann Oak to help in understanding the basic process of making leather (slight variations between tanneries, but basics are similar):

Mike....thanks for the links and info. You must have quite the belt collection. Do you have a thread on SF with picks of your collection? If you don't you should probably start one or combine with one that is on going. Would love to see some pieces you own.

^ Oh hey, the belt threads here on SF are all over the place...maybe we really should get one going, specifically for the Amerikana style work-belts, natural/unfinished belts, hand-made belts, traditional Celtic/English belts, etc. Maybe people can showcase their belts with before, after, maintenance, fit pics. Provide a brief review on leather characteristics and construction quality. Maybe you could provide reviews and pics of the Corter & KMW belts. Sound fun! But in the mean time most of the belts in my current rotation can be found with accompanying write-ups & photos on my blog. (link is in my sig.)

And here is how they do it the old fashioned way in England, 12 to 13 months English oak tannage (18 months from hide conversion to finishing the leather) at Baker's in England:

Both tanneries above are one of the better tanneries in the world, would not hesitate to recommend their products.
Baker's especially, they make the world's finest unfinished bark-tan and tannery-finished English bridle.

Now that was a good video. Thanks!

Old thread, but any reviews re: KMW belts?
Would love to see the details of the leather and how it evolves!
