Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.
There is a support thread if you have any issues.

Yup, sure is. I've made it a custom mix so it's a little more brown and less orange.
i bought one of your belts used and its the belt belt i've ever bought.
better than corter and naked and famous etc...thanks for making a high quality belt...it shows
i'll be hitting you up sometime for that custom mix if you can do it
Can you do a color match for Horween Rust chromexcel (aka the leather in rust Wolverine 1000 miles)? I've been looking for a not-$175 option for a belt that's the same color for a while... and other than something from onthefly.com, I didn't find much...
Still taking orders?
I think I've answered everyone's questions via PMs. I am definitely still making belts, but I rarely bump this thread since I've been so busy. Send me a PM if you are interested in something!
Thanks, Stillmatic! Glad you are enjoying the belt
Just wanted to take a second and thank Zissou for the 3 incredible belts he made for me. Here's a pic (left is the British Tan, middle is the Oxblood which I added a bit of brown dye to darken it, right is the Chocolate.)
Zissou just made me an oxblood belt which is dark enough for me, but out of curiosity what is the process by which you darkened it further? You simply bought brown leather dye and applied a light coat?
Also wanted to post a couple pictures and thank Zissou for a couple belts he made for me. A Black one for a Burberry buckle I had and an Oxblood one to match some Red Wings I have.
That's correct. And, it turned out great (it was fine before, I just wanted a bit darker.)
Thanks for the photos, guys. I am glad you are enjoying your belts so much.
I've decided to adjust the oxblood dye mix a little darker. From now on, it will be as dark as mrdashington's belt above, which matches RW's black cherry, and #8 shell fairly well. It's hard to match #8 exactly, because shell accepts dye much differently than cowhide.
So does that mean that it would be a hassle for you to make future oxblood belts a shade or two lighter than what you've now decided is the mrdashington default?
Also did you stop using the dual prong buckle shown HERE?
how do we find out all the different things you make zissou?
^everything is in the first post above, or in the other threads in my signature...
If you really want the lighter oxblood, I can do that. That dual prong buckle was for the ConexRoy jeans contest belt. I can order more, but they are something like $35 each for just the buckle.
So how much for a full belt with that buckle?
It would be $95 shipped.
