We took our sweet time and no small amount of care in designing the Triple Nickel Belt, testing out more than a few different styles of leather in various thicknesses, searching out just the right buckles and hardware and then field testing the hell out of them.
Built from the same heavy duty bridle leather as our work apron straps, but several times thicker in order to avoid the stretching/bending around the back (you know, like every other belt). And though this belt is so overbuilt it just might just outlast you, we made it from a leather soft enough for a quick break-in and a super comfortable fit.
Belts are 1.5" wide and made from 12-13oz leather (roughly 1/4" thick). Don't worry, they break in for a very comfortable fit. It's just that they're gonna last forever.
Finish Options - New!
Live Edge - Pure and unrefined, no edge dye or burnishing. This one's for holding your pants up during hard and heavy use. Please note: Live Edge Black has a natural center.
High Finish - A bit more refined and just as heavy-duty, our High Finish belts are edge treated and burnished for days when you need to dress things up a bit.
Each belt will be custom-assembled and shipped with your choice of a classic antique brass, bar-style buckle or a more vintage-feel, pin-only design.. See pics for options.
For the coolest among you, we've designed our belts to easily accommodate that sweet vintage buckle in your top drawer. Simply unfasten/fasten a pair of Chicago screws to swap in your favorite buckle.
Belts are sized in 2" increments, from a 25-26" for the small-waisted among you, all the way up to a 59-60" for the big folks.
If you follow our instructions on measuring, we pretty much guarantee a great fit with flexibility for a few pounds in either direction. If you do order the incorrect size (maybe it was a gift or you just used your best guess), we'll be happy to exchange for the correct fit. We'll just kindly ask that your cover shipping both ways.
Determining Belt Size - Super Important!
Your pants size simply will not suffice. You may want to use that as your basis, but, well... It. Just. Won't. Work.
But wait! Together we can solve this riddle before us.
Option 1: All you need is a trusty tape measure and you're 90% there.
Wrap said tape measure around your waist
Eyeball the number wherever the twixt shall meet.
That's it. That's your belt size. Simple as that. Your pants have been lying to you all this time.
Option B: Perhaps you're buying this for someone you really love and don't want to blow the top off of this clandestine little mission. Here's what do.
Secure his/her old belt (best if current)
Look for the hole near the end that's seen the most use.
Lay belt on a flat surface for measuring.
Measure from the end of the buckle to the aforementioned hole (see pic)
Option C: If you feel you have no other options, then the best we can suggest is to take current pants size and add 2 or 3 inches. This is truly a rough approximation, but may could possibly work.
Pick a size
We're using some time-tested math to get you just the right belt size, so it'd be best for all involved if you pick a size that matches up to the dimensions referenced above.
