    I've decided (after winning my 4th belt buckle) to finally get a belt to put them all on.

    I don't want to buy some cheap wal-mart piece of crap...

    Do any of you know any websites/businesses I could look at to get one made?

    And please don't say "go to the Grand and get one from so and so..." because thats the last thing I need to swing the balance in favour of sucking it up and driving 12 hours to Sparta...haha

    I bought one about 3 years ago from the above website, and wear it every day. It actually looks better now than when I bought it. The belts are made from harness quality leather. Mine ran over $100, but I got tired of the cheaper belts cracking and tearing around the buckle holes every few months.


    Take the time to carefully select all the detailing you want, as you will be owning and wearing this belt a long time.

    Try Ed Gazda @772-569-8619 or his cell @ 772-321-2044. He makes wonderful belts and is an excellent leather worker--especially in the equine industry--Give him a try.
