so i found this http://redd.it/k6uro and it teaches you how to make your own leather belt with supplies purchased from tanner goods. its pretty cheap and once you buy the tools (hole puncher, xacto knife, etc) you can basically make a quality leather belt for like $15-25

be careful what you pretend to be

^ That's what I've been wearing for the past (almost) 2 years haha. 
And to clarify you're using materials from Tandy Leather Factory.

What do you guys think? Is the belt too short? You can see it barely sticking out from under the loop. Oh, and shoutouts to @slap for helping me out.

I have a Corter belt on the way and am unsure of what to treat it with. There's a million products it seems and the more I read up on which is best, the more lost I feel. I don't know shit about leather care yet and I can't be alone. If anyone has any insight (beyond "I use product X") then it would be appreciated. What are some pros and cons of some products? What properties does one possess over another? How do they affect color or softness relative to each other? Which ones waterproof? Stuff like that. Anything will be helpful.

Corter has a care page I do believe. I would personally just wear it for a break in period around 3 months. after that I would just look for a good leather preservative. Obenaufs makes my favorite, its not super waxy but sheds water wells and gives it a real nice touch. or some mink oil. most will do basically the same thing. however mink will darken a bit more than others in my experience.

Thanks for the reply! I've glossed over that care page and do believe Eric knows what he's talking about. I just get overwhelmed when I read suggestions elsewhere that mention a thousand other products/care methods by a thousand other people, each as "the best." Ultimately, I did go with a suggestion from Corter. I ordered up some pure neatsfoot oil and Pecard leather dressing (it was cheaper than Obenauf's) which isn't extremely far from Eric's personal method of mink oil and Obenauf's. I don't have the belt or either of the other products in hand yet (though 2 of the 3 should be at the post office right now), so I might do a break-in period like you suggested. I now get the feeling it's going to take a lot of experimentation with many leather products to find out what works better than others.

New belts made from 12 oz Wickett and Craig! these belts are HEAVY

Hi, Jin here, I have been using unlucky's belt for a  month now and loving it throughly. I ordered a 16 oz, lined with black stitching, with the stainless steel buckle, made of Triple C harness leather. Unlucky is a pleasure to do business with and the amazing thing was he didn't even charge me until the belt was complete. Love it with my jeans but with shorts i should really be getting a less thick belt as the buckle sticks out. looks great on jeans; not so much with shorts.
