I'm going to order a natural harness leather belt from LGC. From my understanding they are completely unconditioned. Should I condition/finish this myself? If so, which of these products do I need?

Whats the diference between the tanner goods belt and a corter belt? is tanner goods really worth paying the extra money?
Jul 31, 2012 @ 03:02
Personally I think corter is better value for the price, but both are great. Tanner goods are definitely quality products. Depends what you wanna spend.

Anyone have experience making a belt? Seems kinda fun

If so, what.would you say the difficulty is 1-10? 10 being hardest. Also, was it much more economical than just buying a belt?

Hey Fella's got 2 LVC leather goods for dirt cheap that I need to get rid of. Specially put in this thread for your accommodation.

Both are brand new, and have never been used. If one doesn't know, the leather used with LVC is impeccable, and is always made in Italy where leather construction and processing is known for some of the best.

LVC 1940's Rusted + Aged belt (I believe), has extremely nice characteristics of wear, and the rusted hardware is excellent. Dark-tint of brown overall. 100% Bovine Leather + Made in Italy. Retails $179 / Selling for $60.




LVC Classic Natural Black Leather Bi-Fold. Simple construction, thick and raw hide 100% Bovine Leather. Made in Italy. Retail $150 / Selling for $50.





Thanks!

Tandy leather belt blank + Belt buckle -> Profit.
Easiest and cheapest thing ever for a 100% vegetable tan leather belt.
Been wearing mine for like 15 months now, with lots of character.
Never dyed, never conditioned.

niccceeeee. i actually jus saw an article on this today. was it hard to make the holes and cut the excess leather? so you jus copped the belt,buckle and the belt keep? no kinda treatment to the leather?

السلام عليكم

Aug 15, 2012 @ 06:38
Link to article?

Yep. Belt, buckle (recycled from an old belt) and leather belt keeper.
No treatment, just let it age au natural. But I prefer that natural tan color.

Cut excess leather with a kitchen scissor and made a hole with a drill. Used excess leather as a keychain.
I went a few months with only 1 size hole, but had to add two more. (One for sagging, and one for tighter pants).

I'll post pictures of my belt tomorrow.

LOL. Love the article. I've been on that website a couple time and never seen that one.
But yes, thats exactly what I did. But I did it ghetto without all the puncher tools and xacto knife lol.

My keychain is just a rectangle with a hold punched through lol. Guess it's main purpose to keeep the keys from jangling too much.

Nope, just copped and rocked. Nothing else is necessary.
Yeah, buttons are a little stubborn, in that they open up sometimes (you can keep the keeper moves out of place in the 3rd picture). It gets a little better once the leather softens up.

Get one!

Aug 15, 2012 @ 22:02


Handmade this belt at my local Tandy Leather Factory.


This Bottle Hook is by Corter Leather, but I ordered it from Need Supply Co.



Both treated with olive oil.
