Quality Leather Unfinished Belts - Page 2

post #16 of 21
If you're a hands on, DIY kind of person, you might want to try your hand at making your own belt - http://menfashionadvice.com/men-fashion-accessories/how-to-make-great-belt-for-cheap/

You can get everything you need from - http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/en-usd/home/home.aspx - I don't know how cost effective it is to order online, but see if there is one in your area.

I recently made a couple of belts that turned out great.

yeah, get everything you need from tandy leather and have a shitty #4 choice veg tan import belt...

dont do that.

order a belt from someone who knows what they are doing at least.

besides... if you get everything you need to make a belt you are looking at $300 unless you cut a bunch of corners, and assuming you want a belt that is going to last forever and take on a rich patina, you don't want to cut corners.









this is the belt I've been wearing for 4 months. everyday.

Context has some pretty neat natural leather belts, take a look here. http://www.contextclothing.com/accessories.php?sort=belts. I picked up a tender belt, off a different site, still waiting on delivery.

Thank you very much. I haven't checked this thread in a long time. Since my post I seem to have built myself a nice little local leather goods company. I will be making a thread soon enough.

Hold your breath.

I have two from these guys--one raw/unfinished like your photos, and one black dress belt
The complete opposite of "pretentious fashion brand," I'm pretty sure it's just one or two guys working out of their garage/shed/whatever.
You'll have a hard time finding better quality leather for less money. Can get any length/width you can imagine.
Yes, the website has a definite lack of sophistication. Yes, his directions are a bit long-winded and oddly specific. Just use all the drop down menus at the end of the page and you'll be fine. If what you want isn't in one of the menus, he doesn't have it.
These look great. Thanks!
