** Due to the nature of drum dyed leather, color may not exactly match the photographed color. But they will always be very close. Expect your leather belt to darken and patina with age and wear. (See below)


Finding your Belt Size

Sizing Explained: Your pant sizing is "vanity" sizing. A 32W pant is not 32 inches. A 32W pant is closer to 37 inches. Your "True Waist" (Perfect Fit) is based on actual inches measurement of your waist. Follow our guide to get a Perfect Fit. There are no returns on belts, and getting a good fit is important.


To find your PERFECT FIT: Measure your current belt from tip of buckle to the most used hole. On the 1st drop down choose Perfect Fit: My True Waist and a 2nd option True Waist (inches) will appear. Choose the inch size that you measured from your old belt in this 2nd drop down. Perfect Fit will land you within the 3 center holes of your new belt.


  • Handmade to order. Please see wait time in the INFO/FAQ page.
  • Fit is guaranteed within center 3 holes if you use the fit guide.
  • Restocking fee incurred on any/all exchanges. No returns are accepted on belts.



Available in a Russet or Dark Brown color that is drummed dyed at Hermann Oak’s tannery in Saint Louis, Missouri. The waxy harness leather tends to resist the intake of the dark brown oil dye, and results in a fantastic antique patina. Accented with a large antiqued solid brass buckle, this belt has an old world class that is timeless. Secured with 2 screw posts, you are able to swap this solid brass buckle out for your favorite buckle with the simple turn of a standard screw driver. 

Please check the FAQ for make and delivery time frame. If you need it by a certain date, please message me and I’ll see what I can make happen.

Thank you for supporting independent and hand made.

"There's something comforting about knowing the face and name of the craftsman making something for you. An item made to order; however, is particularly whimsical and takes it one step further. Your soon to be special item isn't just sitting on a shelf waiting to be ordered, but instead, exists as raw materials, awaiting your order and a skilled craftsman's touch." Badger and Blade Read More »
