@Duke Mantee do you take orders? Do you have site to shiw various options if leather and hardware if so?

Married to the kind of women that I am - I’ve had to learn to take orders :laugh2:

But yes I’d be happy to make something for you, unfortunately I don’t have a site (at the moment) - because I don’t work to a fixed set of models, and everything is custom, I’m finding it a challenge to present that. But DM me and we’ll find a way to go through options - it can be, more or less, what you want it to be :smile:

This for @58panheadfan (who sadly doesn’t post here as much I’d like) but anyway proof positive for me that black and brown does work:

Dandarabilla

9oz Oiled Cowhide in Dark Brown

Genuine Cobra inlays - black with nubuck finish, tan in semi-gloss

Standard Rivet vintage brass spots in 3mm and 4.5mm sizes

Standard Rivet vintage brass jewel rings in 9mm sizes

Antique glass (1950s) jewels 9mm Smoky Topaz 

Japanese brass buckle 

Japanese vintage coin (Kiri 1 Sen, 1916-1938) 95% copper, 4% Tin, 1% zinc

Beautiful Duke. Love the design — striking, interesting, eye-catching, yet symmetrical and not over the top or flashy.  Though probably too advanced in years to commission a belt like this, I’m tempted.

Thanks John - you could easily commission a simpler design tho :wink:

I may do just that.  Will look through recent posts to get a sense of the various designs.  You do large rhinestones surrounded by gold leaf, right?  ;-)

The recent designs are broadly similar John - for variations (and ideas) you could look here … but large rhinestones with gold leaf is one of the most popular requests, going for that just puts you in the herd :laugh:

Here’s the other one for the Duchess (just iPhone pics) - still a bit of finishing to do, but essentially it’s done
