Great news!!!! Starting January 1st, 2019, Leatherpunk will now have chrome plated brass pyramid studs back in supply for your studded leather belts and studded wristbands.
What's so special about chrome plated studs?
Simply put, the color and durability makes them absolutely beautiful. When compared to nickel, chrome has a much more silvery color and a brighter luster, which looks great set against leather. It's also harder than nickel.
As you can see in the above photo, a pile of nickel studs on the left, chrome on the right, and in the middle on a strip of leather, two rows of studs rest, one nickel, one chrome. The difference in color is noticeable and remarkable.
At Leatherpunk, I make a lot of leather belts, real leather belts with studs, but for all that, it starts with a perfectly plain black leather belt. It's easy to overlook the simplistic elegance a very well crafted belt adds to your look. Not to mention they really do a bang-up job of keeping your pants up.
If you're reading this, chances are you've had your fair share of department store belts. You know the type: They look great at first, contour immediately to your form, inexpensive, and definitely not leather. Within months, (even weeks) the hole where your buckle fits starts to widen, then separates altogether revealing the sad truth that you unknowingly purchased synthetic, bonded textiles.
The type of leather used is a special cut of domestic bridle strapping that is both supple and durable. Being made from a single ply (layer), your plain Leatherpunk belt will never split apart. But great leather is just the beginning! With over 15 years of craftsmanship experience, you can rest easy knowing that as your trusted tailor, LP will make sure your belt looks great, fits great, and lasts a very, very long time. Get yours here today!
Johnny Hickman(above) received a studded leather wristband (shown below) at a recent performance. The wristband looked really flashy under the stage lights. Compliments of Leatherpunk!
See the finishing touches being added on the new 3 row pyramid studded belt with Jumbo 1/2" pyramids!

This recent photo was sent to Leatherpunk by a customer named Pete that purchased these cuffs 10 years ago. As you can see, they've held up really well and have a natural patina that only time can create.
Pete told me that the real secret to getting this look is to take care of the leather by cleaning it properly a few times per year. I really love seeing pictures like this!
The products shown here are the Johnny depp oblong studded cuff, the double weave, and the triple weave.
