Though the 2020-21 Pandemic has made dressing up, history, for me, my dress belt collection was mighty sad looking. Even when I’ve paid $35-$40 for a belt at Menswear stores, they turn out to be “re-formed leather or two layers that come apart after only a few wearings. I’ve only used it once so far, but this belt is a beauty and built for years to come. This is 5/32” thick leather, which compared to my other dress belts is quite substantial and looked great with my khaki slacks. I’m sold!
A proud new addition to our American Heritage line, these exceptional quality belts are made by an Amish craftsman in his small shop next to his home. He started out making bridles and harnesses for horses and then saw a need for quality leather belts. I purchased and started wearing these belts almost two years ago and they're hardly showing any wear. I'll admit I'm hard on belts and the typical belt I buy in the chain store is lucky to last a year without coming apart. I was so impressed that I thought we should start offering them to our customers as they are a prime example of the quality you get when you purchase "Made in America" products.
The Stitched Dress Belts are made from a solid piece of 9 to 10 oz. water buffalo leather (not two thin strips stitched together like the chain store belts) which is very durable and is softer than cowhide. It has a shiny finish with grain variations... a really beautiful belt.
It's 1-1/4" wide (fits well in the belt loops of dress slacks) with a stainless steel buckle in the black and brass buckle in the brown. The buckle is attached to the belt with "Chicago" screws which make it very easy if you want to change buckles.
The belts are offered in sizes 32" - 52" (order two inches larger than regular pant size) and in either brown or black colors.
Beautiful leather and stitching Lighter weight leather for dress look. Buckle is heavy weight. The belt is beautiful. Sizing direction of 2inch over pant waist is perfect. So happy to have found this and USA made. Well worth the price which is about the same as other dress belts
