Genuine horsehide from Chicago's Horween Leather. US-made antique copper rivets normally used for saddles. Antiqued nickle buckle. 1.5" width.
For our belts, we recommend ordering at least two sizes larger than your Left Field pant size (or three sizes larger than pants from other brands).
The making of our belts:
Strips are cut by hand to width and length, and edges are rounded.
Logo is embossed.
Slots and holes are punched by hand.
Dye is applied by hand in multiple coats.
Excess dye is buffed off with shearling.
Belts are given two coats of oil to help them remain supple.
They are then finished with a bee’s wax based finish, that, after drying, is buffed to a high gloss.
Edges are treated with a blend of bee’s wax, which is burnished into the leather to make it more durable.
Rivets are set by hand using a hammer and anvil.
All work is done using hand tools. Some of the tool designs have
remained unchanged since the 1800s.
The leather for the belts is vegetable tanned horse strips. It's a byproduct of the horse meat industry (most of the meat is exported out of the US). The leather is produced by Horween of Chicago, one of the few remaining USA tanneries.
Horsehide has a different character than standard steerhide, in that it is naturally water resistant, has a tighter grain and is more durable.
