IHB-03 - Plate Buckle Belt
« on: April 13, 2011, 09:44:45 am »
IHB-03 - The mother of all belts

A few of you may remember this subtle little number:













I have had stacks of mails asking for it.

I found out that Haraki had 20 of the buckles hidden away in a drawer in Hachioji.  Well he does no more.

They are on the way to the leather craftsman to be made into belts. 

Black and tan, all sizes available in about 6 weeks............

I don't think KC means awesome in the wow-what-a-bargain sense. 

These babies will have to retail for USD325....

This is from a picture I took in June of last year.  I hardly get to wear this belt as much as I'd like to and have thought about selling it many times.  Can't bring myself to get rid of it for some strange reason. . .

What are the dimensions on that buckle (and the weight)?  Beautiful, but the price is just a tad steep for me.

This belt is BIG. The buckle is hand made pewter measuring 100mm x 70mm, the belt itself being made of 6mm x 44mm vegetable tanned prime US cow hide.

Disclaimer: Do not try to wear this with anything other than Iron Hearts - they may not be able to handle the pressure

For reference, I wear an L in this belt.  I am a 33 waist.  If you are any larger than me, go for the XL.....G
