OBT King Belt
OBT King Belt
There is nothing like the smell of new leather. Then you smell this Oak Bark Tanned leather, and immediately you can tell this is something different. There’s a mystery somewhere in the smell, something ancient, reminiscent of walking into an centuries old cathedral, where the stones still exude that cool earthen atmosphere. This leather too has an earthiness that is hard to explain, but it can be felt. In all my years handling bridle leather and exploring the options of the world, there is none like this.
It takes 14 months for these hides to be produced, in a fashion that’s been used in this same tannery for over 500 years. (Yeah, I could barely wrap my head around that either) This process produces some of the most sought after, durable, high tensile strength, and naturally tanned leather in the world. Which makes it, in my opinion, my favorite candidate for a lifetime belt. That is no exaggeration. Surely most belts will last for years, but I believe this belt could last for lifetimes!
This 12/13oz Oak Tanned Bridle, is very thick compared to perhaps the belts you have owned before, however fits very comfortably from the start, and will shape beautifully to your waist, as it is packed with natural oils. Currently offering with a larger solid brass center-bar buckle, or a lower profile solid brass center-bar buckle.
The OTB King is made to order, to your waist size. Please follow the diagrams instructions on measuring your current belt, and be sure to include that measurement to your notes during checkout.
***Being made to order, there will be no returns on this item, so be sure to measure carefully, and as questions about any reservations you might have before finalizing. Please allow 2-4 weeks for production, as this is a one man show here at Westward, and your order might not be the first in line. Feel free to contact at any time for updates. Thank you.
