While natural veg tan leather belts aren’t that hard to find, acquiring one with the right combination of familiar time tested components and elements of worthwhile differentiation can be a taller task. But Spain’s JWJ just issued their first belt and, just like their denim, the devil lies in the details with this considered design.
The belt uses Hermann Oak-tanned 10oz. leather that’s been saddle stitched by hand in effort to maintain a clean appearance by avoiding knots. Each forged iron buckle has a red-orange fixed patina, which is a one-of-a-kind piece of hardware. In addition to those hallmarks, the belt was made in a run of just 30, so if this happens to be your cup of tea, grab one while the gettin’s good.
Available for about $135USD (excluding VAT) at JWJ Brand.
