Does anyone know of where Drake's sources their braided leather belts? https://us.drakes.com/products/brown-plaited-bridle-leather-belt-with-brass-buckle

There are a lot of other brands that look similar (LL Bean is one), but I don't know if the leather quality at any of them is any good.
I don't. Mine I purchased 2nd hand, and'll editorialize that while I find it bulky, they're certainly nice. However, one's belt-dollar may be better spent elsewhere. Like vintage, The Gap made not-bad braided belts, and of course Spier & Mackey always deliver:

Thanks

Haven't tried a hiking tee but the best heavy tees I've tried are the double heavyweight tees from Wonder Looper. Probably mostly sold out at their website but they do have a number of smaller partners who stock them. https://wonderlooper.com/

They're worth every penny.

I seen them on Cultizm for a while. I'll definitively try them the next time. Thanks!

I have a few and they're absolutely worth it. Completely stable to wash/dry cycles too, more than I expected. I have one I have washed and tumble dried at least a dozen times with no shrinkage. Good to know those details when you're laying out that much money on tees that might shrink and fit different afterward.

Hi, would anyone know a good alternative for the Drakes Corduroy truckers? I‘ve missed the original and it seems like a great piece.
