That stuff is for basic leather care particularly useful on footwear but not necessary. As Kiya's shown you can go a long while without treating leather and it can still turn out looking great, but regular maintenance is important for longevity.
If you don't see yourself wearing that same belt in say 2 years it's not as big an issue.
I think TG leathers are all still lightly treated and wearable out of the box so you shouldn't need to condition it for a while, but it wouldn't hurt to give the strap a rub down first.

Got it from voyej, it's their Acadia Americana mid wallet. Cost is $134 + 20 for shipping to the states. All mid wallets come with a reign too!

does it matter the brand of oil? this leather store at the outlet had this shit for like 8 dollars to coat leathers and stuff

The composition matters more but if the container doesn't list ingredients try to stick with trusted brands: Kiwi, Fiebing's, Lexol, Montana Pitch Blend, Pecard's are all reliable.

8oz Obenauf Heady Duty LP, I've been using it on my leathers for 7 years or so and I'll always use it. GREAT STUFF!!

What Obenauf leather protection are you guys using? Is it 4oz or 8oz?

Those look like the standard ones instead of the slim ones

when it comes to oiling/conditioning does it matter how much you put on when using a paste material? My closing strap as can be seen at the top of the page cracked a little bit so I decided to throw on some mink oil in paste form onto it. I put on a fairly thin coat for now, but unsure how thick to apply.

Also should I put a coat on the inside of the wallet, like on the back side of the outer piece? Since this is my first leather product of this nature where I have to clean and condition it, I'm not really sure when something should be oiled. The inside is pretty rough feeling, kinda hard.

thank for any input

Just ordered a corter standard utility belt. It's gonna be my first nice leather belt. I just hope i sized right. And if I don't oil or anything will it really affect it that much?

I've had my corter belt for about 3 years, no oil no nothing.
Above posts, I posted pics. check em out.

middle, if you're a 30 get a 32!


So If I wanted it to fit on the last hole I would order true to size? I'm thinking about doing this if it's true because I would wear it on the first hole and then as the belt would wear out and stretch it would eventually settle nicely on the middle hole.

^Suede you mean? If it's suede or nubuck you don't want to use regular oils or stuff like snoseal. It'll totally change the color, texture, and overall look.

how exactly do i give corter my size for the belt? it says Please put your desired belt size in the notes/comments section at checkout (inches are best!) but i didnt see anything when i checked out. do i just email him with my order number/paypal transaction id? meh i dont really mind waiting 1 or 2 more weeks on that month wait for a belt

"You will often find that it is 2-3" larger than your tagged pant size."

Size up 2-3 from your true waist. IE. I am a size 29/30 TRUE WAIST. I requested a size 32. You can request more but you would just end up having too much extra anyways.
Jan 13, 2012 @ 23:43
no, i mean where is the comment box when i paid i didnt see it? i just emailed him hopefully that does it
