These custom made Harness Leather Tapered Belts are better than even famous brand name belts because they use better leather, better buckles, have more heavy stitching, and are made with attention to detail, one at a time in the U.S.A. by an experienced leathercraftsman.
  The belt on the right, is a 1-1/2" tapered belt with the 1-1/4" Brass end bar buckle, 2 leather keeper loops and wheat stitching.
  Tapered Belts are cut from 9-10 oz. (5/23") oak tanned harness leather and are hand dyed and finished. The edges of the belts are coated, burnished and harness stitched. The firm harness leather is good for work belts as well as for dress belts because of its smooth wax finish. The back of the belts can be left natural or dyed and sealed for a really finished look.

Belt Colors:

  Hand staining natural leather is like staining wood. Every piece is different. That is one of the things that gives my belts soul, magic, excitement or whatever it is that production belts lack. The colors shown below are as close to the true colors as I can get. From left to right the colors are, Dk. Brown, Med. Brown, Lt. Brown, and Tan. They, plus Black, are standard colors. In actuality the colors in hand finished leather will vary within the same piece of leather similar to the way the color of wood varies in antiques.

  In the standard colors I use special dyes that give my belts a fine Antique Finish. The belts with the Inca design have more contrast because of the Black finish that is rubbed into the pattern. The Tan is a British luggage Tan (Slightly orange color), Lt. Brown is darker with less orange, Med. Brown is more red brown, and Dk Brown is really dark. The Oiled Natural Russet leather is shown on the bridle leather belt page.

Thread Colors:

  In addition to the Black and Wheat color Harness Stitching I have used in the past I now offer Brown. Lets see what you can do with that as another creative option.

Tapered Leather Belt Tapered Belts can be made from either the English Bridle or the Oak Tanned hand finished leather. These belts are one piece of leather that is reduced in width on both ends. The edges are finished and stitched. The 1-1/4" belt in the right shows how tapered belts will be shipped if ordered "Without Buckle", for a 3/4" buckle set.
1-1/2" wide Tapered Belts can be made to fit 1-1/4" and 1" buckles. 1-1/4" wide belts can be made to fit 1", or 3/4" buckles or buckle sets.

(Look for the combination of interlocking squares and circles   Choose the belt length to order from the information provided on the Harness Leather Belt page if you are ordering a belt without a buckle. Depending on your browser speed this link may not load properly and take you to the right part of the page the first time. If not hit Refresh or Reload.
  If you are ordering a belt with a buckle use the "With Buckle" diagram shown below. Or click on this link to view the measuring video. This might take from a few seconds to a minute to load.

Use the diagram to determine your "Center Hole Length". Measure the length of the belt you are now using, from the prong (or pin), to the hole in the belt that you normally use. This length includes the amount your buckle adds to the length of your belt.
  Actual practice has shown that this measurement is about 2" more than waist size.
  DO NOT go by a number printed on the back of your belt. Other manufacturers numbers may vary and your belt may have stretched with use if you are ready for a new one.
  Don't worry about "Overall" length, I need "Center Hole Length" as shown on the diagram above. Do not guess at the waist size of someone you have not seen for 2 years. I measure on this end, you measure on your end.
  If you are ordering a belt WITHOUT a buckle, the measurement is from the fold where the buckle attaches, to the hole you are using.
  Women may wear pants lower on their hips. So, women, decide where you want to wear it and measure that length. There is no way to figure it out using your waist size.
