So what makes a handmade leather belt the best choice for raw selvedge denim?

  • The craftsmanship.

A handmade leather belt is made with care and attention to detail, resulting in a product that is durable and built to last. Skilled artisans take the time to ensure each belt is carefully crafted, resulting in a superior product compared to mass-produced options. We for example, use a single strap of leather vs two pieces in cheaper belts. We also bevel the edges to make the edges more comfortable. We also burnish the edges with dye and beeswax to make it a little more resistant to the elements.

  • Quality materials

Usually a hand-made leather belt is made using very high quality full grain leather that is vegetable tanned. This is the type of leather that you see on beautiful leather goods. Not only do they last longer, but also age beautifully creating a beautiful patina. Handmade leather belts also come with solid metal hardware e.g brass which is corrosion resistant. It might feel a little expensive with these belts but like they say buy cheap buy twice. These belts are going to last decades and considering that you would have saved money on buying 5-8 cheap belts, it is definitely cheaper in the long run.

  • Custom sizing

Promise me, you will never wear belts that are so long that the tip goes behind your back or the belt is so loose that the buckle is hanging on the pants. Not only does it look sloppy but it also spoils the entire outfit!

So if you’re in the market for a new belt to pair with your raw selvedge denim jeans, consider investing in a high-quality handmade leather belt. Not only will it pimp up your outfit, but it will also last longer and look even more beautiful as it ages.
