    Pretty easy to make (and cheap). H Leffler has some good natural belt blanks here:-

    http://www.leffleronline.com.au/web...ategory01=2238.791&pagenum01=17&treeindex01=0

    http://www.primermagazine.com/2012/learn/how-to-make-a-90-belt-for-only-23 is a guide on how to make them.

    All up for the parts it cost me <$60, and I ordered from Tandy Leather Factory (link in that article), which was far more expensive than getting it from HL would have been.

    I'll be in Sydney next Sat-Sun. Can anyone recommend a place to stay overnight that doesn't cost a zillion dollars?

    Well we are definitely on a much much smaller scale and because of that don't weave our own silks etc but quality wise yes I believe we are up there with Drakes, Hober, Marinella etc etc. Tie makers in Italy, and Naples in particular are a dime a dozen but I searched long and hard to find ours, and they do an exceptional job 100% of the time. I'm happy expanding slowly but surely and focussing on building the brand gradually as well and getting in to more retail stores. Time is always a huge factor for me though while I still work full time. Lot's of late nights....

    Thanks guys who chimed in for me too. Back to mowing the lawn!

    Thanks for all the belt suggestions.

    Hmm the Wood & Faulk belt was good value but the tanner goods belt looked better finished!

    I dunno if i should go a black or brass buckle...

    TBM - checked wotif and the westin or the grace hotel are low 200's a night (cheap vs other sydney hotels). Grace is 4 star, has mecca for coffee downstairs. Westin is 5 star

    EDIT - WTF $59 for postage for a belt to oz from tanner goods?? :(

    Just had a very frustrating visit to the op shop.

    Found a Pal Zileri jacket - no pants. Found a Caruso jacket - no pants. Found some Isaia pants - no jacket. Aargh!

    might be worthwhile grabbing and scalping it on ebay.

    Yup, but i don't want to caste the business in a bad light as many others have seemingly had some great work there. Thanks for the Brice's suggestion - I'll check out the place this week.

    Another question if you will indulge me (I realise I've been asking a lot - hopefully once I've increased my knowledge I'll be able to help others and if I'm brave enough I'll post a few pics):

    I recently got a bunch of C&J shoes in the 348 last size 8 (UK). I also ordered some of the AE shoe trees in medium. When I put these trees into the shoes I have to compress the length quite a bit - not quite fully but close to 2/3 of the way. I feel as though this is putting a lot of pressure on the heel. Am I unnecesarily worrying about stretching or should I go for the small size shoe trees? Anyone with experience/similar issue?

    If consensus is they are too big, I have 3 medium AE shoe trees for sale within Australia [​IMG]

    Thanks again guys

    Thanks for all the suggestions dudes. GF texted earlier saying she'd booked something. If only she'd answer her phone, I could know what it is. Probably a Mantra apartment I'm guessing.

    If anyone's around and wants to catch up, let me know :)

    anyone know where I can get a good natural veg-tanned belt that will age and darken with a nice patina over time? To be worn with denim.

    thanks

    Corlection sells a beautiful Pure Blue Japan belt in your specs. It cost quite a bit, but the belt is virtually indestructible. Brass vintage buckle.
