Craft Belt Black


A handcrafted black leather belt made from a beautiful high quality American bridle leather. These belts are built to last with thick full grain leather and will shape themselves to you as they age nicely. This thick leather belt can also work as a dress belt and be worn with slacks. For an even more rugged work belt, see the Mountain Belt.

This craftsman's belt is hand cut, drum dyed, and is edge burnished to perfection. The solid brass buckle is easily removed and swapped with two solid brass screw posts using a standard screw driver.

  • Solid brass hardware options include antique brass and matte nickle finish
  • 1.5" wide and made from thick 10oz American Bridle leather
  • Sourced from the Hermann Oak Tannery in St Louis, Missouri.
  • Holes are spaced 1 inch apart, with the center hole being 6.5 inches from the tip of the belt tongue.
  • Removable buckle with standard screw driver.
  • Edges are burnished for your comfort.

Important: Avoid a restocking fee. Proper sizing is very important. You are responsible for providing a correct measurement. Be sure to follow the measurement directions properly when ordering. Please see my terms for any questions you may have.


For those wanting a perfect fit on the center hole, please order the belt size according to this guide. We build our belts to 5" more than the pant waist size chosen. If you wear a 33 Pant Waist, our belt will be a 37"-39" true waist fit. (True Waist fit based on measurement over pants and through belt loops).

Belt Size Fit Guide Craft and Lore

To find your True Waist: Measure your current belt from tip of buckle to the most used hole. Example: If that measurement is 38", subtract 5 from that total to get 33. Choose 33 PANT WAIST as your size for best fit.

To find your Pant Size: Well, just look at the label on your pants. Is it a 33W? Then choose 33 as your pant size. This means that your True Waist will probably be close to 38" when you measure your current belt from tip of buckle to the hole you use the most. We always suggest choosing the size that matches your True Waist, as it is more accurate than your Pant Size.


  • Handmade to order. Please see wait time in the INFO/FAQ page.
  • Fit is guaranteed within center 3 holes. For best results enter the belt size based on the measurement of your true waist.
  • Restocking fee incurred on any exchanges over customer preference or incorrect sizing.
