I recently received a belt from Jim, “The Beltman.” I have to say, it’s really stiff, but really well made. This particular model is made from our natural horsehide strips – a fully vegetable tanned product. The leather is hand-stained and stitched in the US in Apex, North Carolina, and after just one full day of wear I can already tell it’s going to break-in and soften beautifully.
When ordering you can pick your belt color, material, and buckle (type and color). The buckle is secured by a loop that is held in place with two screws, so changing out the buckle is a cinch. The belt also came with a very thorough set of instructions (do’s and dont’s), and a sheet of “in stock” items that are available at wholesale prices (mis-orders or mis-measurements) that range from $35 (black bullhide) to $100 (black shark) + shipping. Yes, it’s a gun belt, but it works as a belt just fine.
