This belt made from Water Buffalo hide provides ultimate durability. The beautiful gray tone is completely versatile. If you wear it with blues, it will pull out the blue in the belt. If you wear it with khakis, it will pull out the earthy tones. The same for green, black or brown, meaning this belt can be worn with virtually anything. The hide ages beautifully because it gains more variation in the color as it is used by the wearer. It becomes a truly unique piece that will conform to your waist while holding up beautifully to plenty of wear and tear. 8-10 oz leather is the perfect thickness for durability and comfort. The hide has been oil-tanned for softness, yet Water Buffalo hide is known for its strength; and the thicker hide means the leather will stretch less over time. However, it isn’t so thick that it is uncomfortable to wear. Handcrafted in the USA.
