Damn, what a problem to have LandoCal -- losing weight without really realizing it ! Trust me, that's not a common problem for 45-year-old women.

So here are those two Mark Joiner buckles, I never wear the bottom buckle so if any of you guys like it feel free to pm me with an offer.  Hell I'd even sell the top one too.  I'd rather have one in black.

Do any of you guys have both the 13oz and the standard Tanner Goods belts?  I have the standard and it's super thick, I can't imagine the 13oz.

Yeah that's what I thought too, that 13oz. may be a bit overboard.

Nice - I like this one: http://www.markjoiner.com/collections/buckles/products/wheat-buckle-1?page=3

Holy crap these buckles are bad ass... i really dig the current DOTM Osar buckles. I seriously want like 4 of these color combos. How well do these really hold up though? I currently wear tanner belts but im slightly allergic to the nickel plating and the top of the buckles that rub my stomach under my tshirt when i sit give me a slight rash sometimes and its annoying. I prefer double prong belts but im almost considering getting one/two of these. I know tanner has the stainless single prong roller buckles but theyre boring as single prong :P I wish they had the dual prong in stainless.

Received my two Mark Joiner buckles today.... freakin AWESOME. Holy crap! And the hardware is small and won't even rub against my skin so no rash which is a major plus. Thanks for suggesting him Dchill!

Ive been busy and haven't taken the time to switch over these buckles yet... turns out the hardware on these things wont accommodate my tanner belts because the metal loop that swings down that you slide the belt through tapers inward up towards the buckle so... its too tight a fit. Won't even insert past an inch or so. I spoke to the guy that created them and he said he had some ideas that would work, but i havent heard back from him in awhile now.. he told me he has to keep going out of town (my buckles even initially shipped way way later than they were supposed to)

Does anyone have experience making modification to belt buckle hardware? I feel like if i got some pliers and pulled that little swing bar apart and put a bigger one on it, they would be fine? But i dont really know how to do it or a good place to get the parts?

Hello, I have a good belt that I would lke to change the buckle for something slimmer and more simple, garrison style, the buckle I have now ia garrison as well but pretty shiny and sort of big. Does anyne know a place to buy good quality buckles on the web? I been looking but I only find suppliers for shops

Thanks a lot

Nothing, They seem only to sell the whole belt too, changing the topic, For a natural tan belt I got as well, Do I have to use some kind of product to develop a patina or something, or I just start using the belt?

I'd oil/wax it before use.
That'll keep most of the indigo coming from jeans off the belt.
