I flipped an ebayed pair of vintage Red Wing work boots for a tidy little profit - just enough to treat myself to a custom leather belt from Norwich Leather Co in Taftville, CT.
These belts have beveled, burnished, and dyed edges; they are dyed, sealed, waxed, and buffed by hand with attention to detail by an experienced craftsman. Let's be real - people pay more for plastic, generic, soul-less, production-made leather belts in mall stores every day.
Here's the customization page for the harness-leather belts - I ordered mine with the light brown leather, 1 1/2" width, wheat edge stitching, buckle #7 in polished brass, and NO words stamped into the back. I'm giddy.
