I hit the flea market in Alameda today. Vintage belts average about $10 each.

Here's some pics of my actual belt after putting in new holes. The belt comes stock with holes only every 2 inches. I think every 1 inch is better in terms of fit and being about to tighten/loosen it based on the type of pants you are wearing, etc.

Also, one of the nice things about getting a raw natural belt is that over the years, it darkens and wears. Buying a vintage belt is just not the same IMO because you didn't wear it down to that point yourself.

^^Looks good. Assume you just had you local shoe repair guy add the fe extra holes.

I agree that it is fun to break in your own belt, just like your own jeans. But, I will still buy a great vintage belt when I see them. But that is rare.

Actually I had my Mom put in the holes. She used to do leather crafts and had the tool.

I'm not sure. I don't know enough about leather to answer but I assume since these are natural/raw and seem untreated they could be died.

Thanks for the update!
Looks sweet, definitely a good buy for $20.

Would probably start recommending this if people want a cheap belt.
Just bought an Orion belt at the same price just to see how it would work out, otherwise would've probably gotten this.
