Been wearing a Tanner Goods belt this summer with my jeans/chinos.
Fixed. Unless you want an actual rawhide belt, sounds kinda painful.
+1 for Tanner Goods. Got the 13oz belt in Natural for Christmas. It's darkened up quite nicely with use, and still barely broken in. It looks a few shades lighter than the Saddle Tan color. They range from $79-98 each and they're all handmade and are made as ordered. http://www.tannergoods.com/collections/belts
Or if you've got 2 bills to drop, try Kenton Sorenson's roller buckle belt. http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=1506 and http://www.kentonsorenson.com/#!store
If you've got a pair of raw denim you're pairing it with, mind as well have a belt that breaks in and develops its own character with wear, just like your denim
my vote goes to Unlucky. Fair price, good communication, and highly committed in making the customer happy. I had a problem with a belt due to measurements and he took it back and made me a new one w/ no questions asked.
I think it is just him, but the emails are always answered within 24hrs. The only negative I can think of is you might have to wait a few weeks for your belt to be custom made. Not really a big deal in my eyes, since the belt will practically last a lifetime.
I bought a bracelet from Hollows and he was super quick in replying.
I gave it to a friend who ended up losing the clasp by accident and he replied to those e-mails (where to find replacement piece) within a few (3-5?) hours as well.
I ordered once from Hollows but it turned out he sent me a missized belt. Happens.
Zissou. Best bang for your buck. I've got a natural leather belt from him and will likely order a couple more when I get the chance.
What do you guys think of Leather Goods Connection? http://www.leathergoodsconnection.com/brlebe.html I've been thinking about getting a belt and wallet from them, but I haven't heard much feedback about them
Why is he the best bang for the buck? Care to elaborate?
If you haven't seen this thread already, it's worth a look.
I was thinking of grabbing a couple belts from Tanner they seem quite interesting. I recently purchased the last belt from Warehouse on BiG but the size 34 was a little too short on me so I'm looking for a couple of other belts to replace that one. I really wish the belt from Sugar Cane was in stock
Judging from the pictures, my vote would go to Hollows if you are going artisan. His handstitching is just perfect.
Tanner shouldn't be called handmade, and the keeper they use, is shit.
If you want something special, order a Tender & Co belt. The leather used is from Barker in England. I use it myself for belt making, and it is a really interesting and AMAZING leather.
Or else you could go ahead and order from Filson (quite good bridle), Leatherman Ltd (the Trace Carrier is great), Tory (their hoof-pick belt is cheap and quite good) or maybe Col. Littleton, if you want something unique. Or what about the Springfield belt from Narrangasett (BillyKirk may be selling it as well)?
There are plenty of interesting options available.
Hollows looks very nice. I'm going to inquire about non raw leather options.
Am I the only one who thinks the Kenton Sorenson belts are incredibly overpriced?
I'd like to get one of those chromexcel belts from Epaulet.
I think they are a bit much as well especially when you have so many other artisans offering the same for at least 100 less.
