    I like blue #4 the most, but I'm not going to buy one, so whatever. I want a blue belt though. Maybe I will try bleaching a thrift store belt or something...

    I chose the henna because it was the most accessible, and people seemed to like it. On the other hand, the blue is more unique, and looks really cool in person. It would definitely (imo, of course) go well with jeans, expecially as an accent piece, and with the brass buckle... So now it's a toss up between the blue and the henna. Again, PM me with solid commitments if you are willing to make them.

    Fok.

    Update: A snap strap is possible, and the belts will be done with a snap on strap, as members had requested. Engineered Garments has never done this for anyone else before, so we all owe Daiki a big thanks.

    Also, I need a few more commitments before I can send an order in.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A blue EG belt goes great with denim.
    A blue EG belt looks great with a brass buckle.
    People will stare enviously and wonder where you got your blue EG belt.
    It will not look like any other belt out there.

    Now how much would you pay? But wait! There's more!

    For the price of a mid-range pair of Japanese shuttle-loomed selvage denim jeans, you can have one belt that goes with all of your jeans. That's right, all!

    Order today! Operators are standing by. Go blue!

    Since he'll make it with a snap, would it be possible to order one in black and one in #6 with only one buckle?

    Um, maybe... Geez, you guys are hard to please. I'll see. Would you commit to buying the 2 belt straps? Don't know what the price difference would be...

    PM me.

    I hope you guys are considering it. That blue leather is serious business. You could wear it with more than jeans.

    I think the henna would be pretty flexible too. It takes a small lead for me because it's going to become my only decent jeans belt. I'm in either way.

    I'm probably not the only one but I haven't seen any posts about it; I've received my Krell hoodie and am very satisfied, considering the pretty low price in a world of $250 hoodies. Nice stitching job, lighweight summer fabric, interesting maroon/reddish color, slim fit, just enough details to make it special without making you look like you're trying too hard. I especially like the uneven shape of the bottom of the hoodie (think dress shirt with sides higher than the front and back) which, because it was adapted to my height, allows me to show up a matching tee on the side.

    I received my hoodie, too, and am very pleased with it. Great color, fit and detailing as Fuuma says. Thanks Fok!
