Here at Leatherpunk, I make a lot of belts, real 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. I know the type: They look great at first, contour immediately to your form, inexpensive, and definitely not leather. Within months, the hole where your buckle fits starts to widen, then separates altogether revealing the sad truth that you unknowingly purchased synthetic, bonded textiles.
