Many people make belts, but mine incorporate my own unique touches to add versatility and strength! Belts come in different widths, each with their own options for available buckle styles. My standard widths are 2", 2", and 3". Custom widths are available also, just right for your custom buckle!

Buckle Attachment Options

Return to Menu

I take the time to hand stitch every buckle in place! Sure it's more work for me, but hand stitching is more accurate to the period and actually stronger than rivets! Snaps or Chicago Screws are available if you prefer to be able to remove the buckle.

Please add $4 to the price for the snap or screw option.

Fancy Border

Elaborate Border #1

This image shows a tooled pattern to match a buckle that I was gifted. I can do this pattern for you! Add $15

This section is still under construction with more border options on the way. Check back soon!


New, Broken in, or Severely Distressed

Return to Menu

You also have your choice of different conditions of your belt. When new, the leather is quite stiff, but our opinion is that a broken in appearance is more desirable, so we take a few minutes to begin breaking in each piece as a standard. If you would rather that yours be new and stiff to break in yourself, please say so! We can also add severe distressing, to give it a few years worth of wear! That service is a mere $9 extra. 

Shown is new on top and broken in on bottom. Broken in is standard. Click photo for larger image.

Severely distressed and damaged. In addition to being broken in, this one has part of the tip missing and shows signs of abrasion and wear. $9 extra. 


Ordering Concerns

Return to Menu


When ordering any belt please specify the size, and please be aware that your pant or modern belt size is often not your belt size. Get a tape measure and measure right where you will wear the belt!


Click here to open a new page with more important belt size details!


Sizes over 46 please add $9 to the listed price.

Color and Buckle Styles.

Be sure to choose your color and desired buckle. Buckles are hand stitched (not riveted) in place. If you prefer snaps instead (snaps would allow you to remove the buckle). I take the time to hand stitch every buckle in place! Sure it's more work for me, but hand stitching is more accurate to the period and actually stronger than rivets! Snaps are available if you prefer to be able to remove the buckle.

3" belt example of a Hand Stitched Standard

3" belt example of Chicago Screws

2" belt showing two snaps option

Snap option please add $4 to the price.

Larger Sizes over 46"

Additional cost of $9 is added to sizes larger than 46". Larger sizes may also require me to join two pieces together at my discretion depending on the availability of longer raw leather. I use a strong hand stitched joint and no extra cost for this!

If this joint is not acceptable to you, please specify it to me!


How to Order

Click the buttons below to use the Shopping Cart, or just click here to go to my ordering page for other ordering options!


To use the buttons, order your item from the left column, and add any accessory options. Options not specified will have the default (shown) applied.


Note on Belt size - I use your actual measurement and make that the center hole. This usually won't match the waist size of your pants. Clothing manufacturers actually practice something called "Vanity Sizing" which is designed to make you feel better about what 'pant size' you wear. However if I make a belt that matches your pant size, it won't fit. It's best to actually measure your waist over the clothing you will wear the belt with. Use a tape measure, make it snug, and give me that number!

PROTESTERS take notice: Boycotting leather goods will not affect the production of raw leather!

No animals were hurt or killed for the creation of these products; most leather is a by-product of the ginormous meat industry!

If my colleagues and I didn't make stuff out of it, that leather would just get thrown away and wasted.
