Everyday Leather Belt - Raw
I make each of these 1.5" wide belt of 10-11oz Hermann Oak vegetable tanned full grain leather. Cut from the portion of the leather closest to the back and shoulder, this area has the tightest grain structure which yields the strongest leather as compared to belly or neck cuts. Tough enough to last a lifetime, yet slim and comfortable to wear. Belts will be thinned down at the buckle area to reduce bulk, and oblong holes will be used to help the belt lay even flatter. Five holes will be punched to guarantee the perfect fit. Solid brass heel bar buckle in your choice of Bright Brass, Antique Brass, or Polished Nickel, riveted construction that matches your buckle choice, and fully burnished edges will round out this belt's composition. This is the type of belt I wanted when I used to burn through cheap department store belts every year.
Watch your belt patina beautifully with time and use thanks to the special way vegetable tanned leather ages. With every mark, scuff, and stain your belt experiences, it will gain a unique character of its own..what stories will your leather be able to tell in the years to come?
Each and every belt is made to order by hand and finished with both Obenauf's Leather Oil and Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP for long lasting protection and conditioning.
Pictured is a belt made with antique brass hardware, as well as an example of the difference between a brand new belt and one years worth of wear and patina.

There are two ways to find the size you need for your new belt.
- Measure in inches a belt you wear regularly from the base of the buckle to the hole you use most. As a quick check to be sure your measurement is correct, it should be about two inches larger than your waist measurement.
Please see the photo provided for clarification if necessary.
- Measure your waist in inches at the area that your belt loops would be. Add two inches to this measurement to find your belt size. As a quick check to be sure that your measurement is correct, it should be about two inches larger than your waist measurement.
