1 1/4 inch Bridle Leather Belt


You can buy a belt from a department store, only to be back six months later because it fell apart. Or, you can buy a belt from those of us who still believe in making the real thing and it will last you many years. I always say, if you are really hard on my belts, you will get 10 years out of them. If you take care of them, you'll get 20 or more. Like someone said, "I am too poor to buy cheap!"

So, what makes my belts different?
-I use the absolutely finest quality Bridle Leather cowhide. The leather I use costs more, but it is hands down the best quality belt leather I have ever seen.
-I cut the hides myself. This is full grain cowhide, nothing split and glued together. No funny business.
-Most of my colors I dye by hand; each one is slightly unique from the rest.
-I slick the edges of my belts to absolute perfection. You can feel the difference.
-I coat the edges with a durable acrylic product designed for leather edges. It frames the color of the belt nicely and makes the smooth edges much more durable.
-I use only Solid Brass hardware on my belts. (No junk hardware on any product I make.)
-And as always, I guarantee everything I make for life against defects.

BEST: Measure a belt of similar width that fits you well. (See second picture titled "Measuring Belts")
GOOD: Select measurement according to pants size.

-I will custom fit your belt to any measurement you need.
-I fit you to the center hole so that you will have 2 holes on either side.
-For smaller waists, I punch the holes closer together. You will definitely appreciate it.
-As a courtesy, I do not charge extra for extra long belts. Believe me, I can make a belt for anyone!

**If you have any doubts or questions, feel free to drop me a note or call!

**PLEASE NOTE: Because I cut your belt specifically for you, I cannot accept returns on belts. If it does not fit or you are not satisfied in any way, I will be happy to replace it.

Frequently Asked Questions


I can stamp your name, initials or whatever you like on most of my products.

Monograms are 1/2 inch tall letters, all caps. Using my heat stamping machine, monograms stamp cleanly and beautifully. See an example in the color swatches photo on most listings in my shop.

**Please note that all sales are final for monogrammed products.


Properly cared for, my products will last a lifetime. We have seen leather items from the civil war come in the shop that are still in excellent condition because they were cared for properly!

Over time, leather dries out and needs to have oil put back into it. I use Fiebing's Neatsfoot Oil Compound on my leather, and I highly recommend it. See the Leather Hides & Supplies section of my shop to purchase a bottle.

**Never use Mink Oil on my products because it will rot the nylon thread and is NOT covered in my lifetime guarantee against defects.


Water will not damage my products. While the finish I use is water resistant, you may see some water spotting, especially on light colors. The lining I use is a waterproof rip-stop nylon which will keep out the rain so you need not worry about your electronics and other items getting wet when you get caught out in the rain. Because, lets face it, that happens to all of us!

Water will cause leather to dry out more quickly, so if your bag gets wet frequently, you should put oil back into it more often. (see Leather Care above)


My goal is to make the absolute best quality products possible; therefore, I guarantee everything I make for life against defects in materials and workmanship. With this in mind, I use only the finest quality leather, nylon thread, rip-stop nylon lining, solid brass and stainless steel hardware available. If something goes wrong and it is my fault, I will happily fix it for free!

I love these belts! I bought one 7 or 8 years ago. I wear it pretty much every day and it has held up amazingly well. I thought I had lost my original belt, so I bought another. I found my old one, but I certainly don't regret this new purchase. It doesn't hurt to have two belts, just in case I misplace one again! :)
