OBBI GOOD LABEL BELT VTG SINGLE-PRONG HAND-DYED BLACK (1.75" WIDTH)
HAND-DYED ON NATURAL VEGETABLE-TANNED LEATHERS (11OZ)
LEATHER BELT THAT LAST AND FADE
We love natural leather belts, thick and supple, that on first handling, you know it will last a lifetime.
On a 11oz Natural Vegetable-Tanned cowhide leather, we cut the belt blanks from the centre (back of the animal) of the cowhide, which is the most optimal potion for belts. Using our OGL Black Dye (Colour-changing kit), we hand-dyed the leather surface with 3 layers of black. On the edge, we applied OGL Batik Stain and burnished to match the colour of the brass buckle. And finally underside is 'smoothen-out' using OGL Burnishing Solution to create slick and non-hairy surface.
On constant usage, this belt will aged to softer while concurrently the black dye will fade unevenly revealing the aging Natural base leather.
This is a very special aging characteristic that in Asia, we call it "茶芯" (meaning, Tea colour for the core).
WIDER WIDTH (1.75") FOR VINTAGE STYLE
Inspired from western cowboys in the past, where wider belts are commonly used because most of the trousers featured wider belt loops. We guess it is likely for holding their Gunslinger belts and gun holsters.
|Hole Position (refer to fig. below)||30 to 34||32 to 36||34 to 38||36 to 40||39 to 43|
|Total length (leather only)||41||43||45||47||50|
Note: The leather is strong and tough when new, there will be some difficulties during unbuckling. Will be normal with constant use of 2 weeks.
Leather Maintenance: When new, no leather maintenance is required. Use for 2 to 3 months before applying leather oils/cream. LES TRAVAUX Mink Oil is the perfect conditioner for this belt.
