1.5" Hand Printed Camo Herman Oak Vegtan Firefighter's Quick Release Belt with Brass or Black Buckle
Every single belt is hand printed with a custom camouflage pattern using block printing. No two belts will be the same. The 10oz Full Grain Herman Oak Vegetable Tanned Leather is going to age amazingly, it will darken and richen in tone over time (Swipe through the photos for an example of the patina). After the stamping process, every belt is treated with jojoba oil and a blend of oils and waxes to protect the finish. My recommended hardware pairing is brass for the aging potential and to really bring out the vintage vibe of the camo, but I am also making the black buckle an option. The buckle and keeper are stitched on with both black and green waxed ritza tiger thread to keep with the theme.
The "Firefighter" Quick Release buckle was never actually used to hold up the fireman's pants, but rather, to keep the firehoses wrapped up. The quick release action allowed the firemen to quickly undo the buckle and gain access to the hose, when even a couple extra seconds could mean saving a life.
These buckles are functional, practical, and make a stylish fashion statement, all while telling a story.
The tension of the buckled belt will keep the buckle together, simply press down on the lever, and the buckle will come undone, allowing you to quickly remove the belt.
Not to be confused with "top grain", or "genuine leather"; "full grain leather" is the highest grade leather there is, and will last you many lifetimes.
To order this belt, please measure one of your old belts using the diagram pictured above. The system that I use is the most accurate method of measurement, and involves measuring from the end of the buckle prong, to the hole that fits you best (this method accounts for any difference in length between your buckle and mine). You can add your measurement in the measurement section above, or you can shoot me a message thereafter. Allow 2 weeks for completion.
