This belt is truly excellent and you will treasure it. Made in the USA from horsehair and bridle leather, it was hand-woven without the use of tools or looms. For centuries, master craftsmen have hand-woven fine horsehair into pieces of art. Settlers of the USA west would spend evenings around the camp fire braiding the excess hair brushed out of their horse's tail and mane. Following that tradition, this belt from Will Leather Goods in Eugene, Oregon features 13 oz saddle leather trip, on this 40mm wide belt. Typically, you should get a belt sized one size bigger than your waist size. So a size 32 pants wears a 34 belt.
