    Hey-

    I'm going to start working on a new pair of jeans and think it would be fun to pair it with a new belt. Let it all wear in together. Any suggestions for a very versatile jeans belt for less than $100 or so? I'm drooling over the KMW belts sold by Context, but $330 for a belt isn't going to happen.

    Thanks!

    Atelier LaDurance belts weren't that expensive if I recall. Some independent guys on superfuture do leather craft and make custom belts for reasonable prices as well, probably your best bet.

    the Unlucky raw horeshide sounds good; corter on sufu has been making and perfecting his skills for awhile now, long ago he was working day and night and having to stop working on stuff because his hands were bleeding and old cuts would open up again, that's some hardcore shit. He has really heavy bridle leather belts if I recall, something insane in ounces.

    Yeah, unlucky does great work and does it quickly. I have a horse and a much thicker calf that I prefer that is pictured in this link. It has darkened up beautifully. http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...&postcount=440

    I got a RRL belt on ebay for around $100, and it has aged absolutely beautifully. The patina is really just amazing. The leather is really, really thick, while still remaining soft. It's by far the nicest belt I've ever owned, probably even seen in person, and I would highly recommend them. If you search on ebay, you'll see a lot of them are very western/cowboy inspired, which I don't really like, but if you look around you'll be able to find some of their more basic belts. I'd snap a photo of mine if I had any type of camera that could actually capture the detail. [​IMG]

    I'm tossing in another vote for Unlucky - can't beat the price and the quality is great!
