    - Zissou
    - Leather Goods Connection

    I already have a Havana Tanner Goods belt and I just ordered a Natural LGC one. Who will be next :) ?

    Did you have to special order the beautiful belt from EQUUS? I don't see that buckle on their web site. Thanks.

    Unfortunately, the QR buckles they have only go up to 1.25". For 1.5" QRs I've only found this guy to make them. You can get the buckles on ebay sometimes, but they're not as finished or polished. I've gotten one off e-bay and used it on my own belt strap, but I'll get another one from Tim Hardy eventually.

    I want to gaze inside of the mind of the type of person who wears this voluntarily.

    Land's End makes a pretty nice medium thickness raw-edged leather belt. I have one in tan and in black. You can find them really cheap on sale, and they're already relatively-inexpensive.

    It's probably been mentioned, but Naked and Famous makes a sweet leather belt, too.

    I received a custom belt from Leather Goods Connection few days ago in natural leather. Really happy with it.
    I also have a nice Tanner Goods in Havana but too expensive at retail price.

    Does having finished edge (burnished) on a belt mean it's higher quality than raw unfinished edge? Is this edge finishing an indicator of the quality of the leather as well? Thanks!

    Finished edges are not an indicator of the quality of leather, just the craftsmanship. Raw edges will eventually look very fuzzy. Burnishing and waxing edges generally stops this from happening depending on the treatment.

    So is finished edge a must in a quality belt?

    Yes, but I'm a bit biased :)
