This is our heaviest raw leather belt to date and we've made some additional upgrades to our materials. At a monster 10/12 mm this is a weight typically used for bridle leather. Because of the sheer thickness, each belt has been individually cut by hand ensuring a true handcrafted American made leather belt. We have updated our hardware with two chicago screws to secure the buckle instead of the flat head rivets. This makes the buckle interchangeable. Our buckles are now all 16oz solid brass, all American made. Quality belts deserve quality hardware.
Breaking in this belt is a satisfying process that will see the grain age beautifully and acquire a patina that is not duplicatable with dye. This belt will begin to show wear right out of the gate and after approximately 3 months a patina will begin to develop that will be unique to you and your wear. As far as construction goes, we kept it stitchless since stitching is the main point of weakness on any belt. The strap is edged by hand and is finished with a traditional English point.
If you are looking for a belt that compliments your pair of heavyweight raw denim then look no further.

How to measure for your size:
All Brave Star belt straps are made with 5 holes, spaced 1" apart. The centre hole is the anchor size with the bookend sizes spaced one inch apart. We have taken the guesswork out of figuring out which size you would need and recommend that you buy your jean size in our belts. Example; a size 32 jean size would order a 32" belt. Please take into account that leather will stretch 1-2 inches once broken in so if your belt seems snug in your size at first then that's the correct fit as it will gradually conform and stretch to fit to your waist.
