Was literally just looking (and just bought) for some type of O belt and this looks really good. Like the use of the belt keeper as well.

I'm assuming you made these belts?

Yes, all these belts are made by me.

This type of O-ring fastener is very convenient to use. The main thing is to choose the size correctly.

All belts are made of English bridle leather (mainly from J&FJ Baker).

MJF9, you might try Charlie at Equus Leather (equusleather.co.uk). He’s in your neck of the woods, does exceptional work, is open to individual mods and has a varied stock of leathers and colors.

Anybody interested in my Equus Russet Bakers Bridle belt? It's an awesome belt but too small for me. Size is 32 1/2" (to middle hole.) Only worn maybe a dozen times or so. PM me if interested, I'll probably look to sell for about $120 shipped. (A new one is about $160 USD.)

Any recommendations for a good natural/tan colored rough out belt? Might be cool to have something a little different.

Awesome belts Engine, always enjoy seeing your work and also very nice photography. Where do the buckles come from - England, Japan, etc.? And do you sell stuff, or just make these for yourself?

@Cold Summer

Thank you for the nice words! Yeah, you're right, I use Japanese and English buckles. I'm a leather artisan and specialize mainly in casual belts, although I do other accessories and bags. Usually, the belts I show here were custom-made.

Thank you for the good idea! I tried to make it, and I think the result looks pretty good.

Hi

I have a Samurai W001 belt.

Anybody has idea, how to clean and oil Natural Leather belt?

Can we use natural ingredients such as olive oil or coconut oil or only leather oil to be used ?

Whether to oil both sides (glossy and rough side)?
