1.5" OxBlood Leather Quick Release Belt with Blacked Out Buckle and Bridle Leather Keeper. Hand Stitched!
Black plated solid brass quick release buckle, hand dyed OxBlood vegetable tanned natural leather, english bridle leather with leather keeper, hand stitched with black waxed ritza tiger thread.
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.
Handmade to order with full grain natural vegetable tanned leather and raw brass hardware. I bevel and burnish the edges with water and natural bees wax.
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.
