Just some leather-oil, colorless, or something like saddlebalm. Or beeswax.

Note. This will immediatelly darken the belt.

I have reingrease, natural and black, and saddlebalm to take care of my boots, leather jackets etc. For natural belt I'd use saddlebalm. ( I don't have beeswax at the moment)

obenauf's leather, Red Wink Mink Oil or red Wing Boot Oil work very well for a patina.
I don't care what people say.. The Max Power way is the right way...

On buckles I would search 1940's to 60's champion rodeo belt buckles, they are usually hand made and gold gilt and pretty special, otherwise I'd go for a basic retangle type buckle seen on J24 Buco biker jackets - all on ebay vintage mens accessories - hope this helps.  Simonc

all of my belts/buckles come from thrift stores, flea markets, antique/junk shops.  i look through old belts and try to find old brass buckles and stuff like that.

Great source.  I've been looking for that exact buckle for some time, but hadn't tried eBay.  I've got some 13-15 oz. cowhide I'm going to use for a new belt.  Pics to follow...

Well, they're not garrison style, but Tanner Goods sells some nice and simple buckles, you could try there.  If you are willing to go (much) higher in price, First Arrows sells some really lovely buckles, including a garrison style one.  Finally, I bought one from metalogical on Etsy.  If you have something particular in mind, Etsy is a good place to find interesting stuff, and you can sometimes get the sellers to custom make you a piece.
