A sturdy, beautiful belt made with Horween leather that will last for years.
**YOU MUST MEASURE YOUR BELT SIZE ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW - IT IS NOT THE SAME AS YOUR PANT SIZE.**
THE ONE STAR BELT
A simple flat cut strap of superior quality leather. 1.25 inches in width, finished with a center bar buckle and a chicago screw. Chicago screws are removable, so if you later find an awesome center bar belt buckle at a thrift store or in your uncle's attic that you want to use with your nicely-aged belt strap, you can change the buckle yourself easily with a flathead screwdriver.
The leather is incredible - Chromexcel from the legendary Horween Tannery in Chicago. This leather is soft and supple and will stretch about 1" as you break it in (I work that into the sizing, see below). The edges are not beveled, but will develop a nicely rounded shape as the belt wears in.
BELT MEASUREMENT ("SIZE" - ENTER ABOVE) - **IMPORTANT**
Each belt is custom sized. The measurement I need is *NOT* your pant size. Keep reading:
To determine your belt size, measure a current belt that fits you well. Measure the distance (in inches) from the hole you use most to the other end of the belt where the leather folds over the buckle (at the base of the buckle prong). You will probably notice that your belt size is a few inches larger than your pant size.
When you receive your belt, the middle of 5 holes will be 1" smaller than your measurement. This is to account for about 1" of stretch in the belt as it breaks in. After break-in, your given measurement should fall close to the middle hole. This is not an exact science and each piece of leather will break in slightly differently.
Remember to double check your belt measurement! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MISTAKES IN MEASUREMENTS. The size you order is the size you will receive.
Custom sized belts are not returnable unless I made a mistake (in which case please contact me and I will correct it!).

Keegan’s great! Top quality materials and craftsmanship. I bought a belt from him last year and love it so much that I’m back buying more as gifts for family.

The belt looks great and I expect it will develop a lot of character as it gets worn. The sizing was just as described.

Well made belt that certainly feels like it will pass the test of time. And by time I mean decades.
