This has been a goal of ours for quite a time, we are delighted to see this come to fruition. Introducing our Bronze Circle Buckle, hand-forged right here in Missoula, Montana by master metalsmith, Nathan Kimpell. Bronze is an alloy consisting of copper, tin, and some combination of aluminum, manganese, nickel & zinc. As a result, bronze is a harder metal than pure copper. This piece takes longer to hand-forge due to the hardness of the metal, but the end result is incredibly strong and stunning. We are delighted to now offer this heirloom piece to you or your loved one.

These Natural Brown Chromexcel straps are 8-10 oz. in weight, buttery & supple. This leather will quickly become your go-to belt from day one.
Horween Black ChromexcelThe Black Chromexcel straps are finished with the same tanning process as the Natural Brown Chromexcel straps- buttery and beefy. Heavy 8-10 oz. in weight, this leather is soft and supple. A Black Chromexcel belt is well-suited to be a top-shelf, daily go-to belt.
Black LatigoIf you are looking for a belt that is strong, flexible, and exceedingly handsome, Latigo leather is a natural choice.

Crazy Horse BuffaloThe Crazy Horse Buffalo strap was the first in our Buffalo leather collection. Eye-catching pull-up was the very first thing that we noticed. We brought a side into the shop, built several prototypes, and sent them out to friends for authentic feedback. It didn’t take long to realize that this leather would be a staple in our line-up. The veg-tanned Buffalo straps are 8-9 oz in weight, sturdy, flexible, and have stunning pull-up with lighter undertones highlighted when flexed.
Crazy Horse Grey Buffalo We added Crazy Horse Gray Buffalo leather straps following overwhelming feedback received from the Crazy Horse Buffalo belts. They have the same 8-9 oz. weight, sturdy and flexible. The elephant gray color reveals a light gray pull-up effect.
Indigo Blue Buffalo We have always been attracted to the color of indigo. For this reason, when we came across this leather, we added it immediately as an offering. Each of the veg-tanned, 8-9 oz. straps are beefy, robust, and flexible. The dark indigo color reveals a light blue pull-up effect when bent. This leather is characteristically one of a kind, yet still manages to go with everything.
Brown Buffalo No wardrobe is complete without a classic brown belt that is as durable as it is attractive. The veg-tanned Buffalo straps are 8-9 oz in weight, sturdy, flexible. The Brown Buffalo leather has a consistent color. rather than a pull-up effect of our other buffalo leather belts.
