What is a belt? Is it merely a device to hold your pants up, we think not after all you could wear suspenders for that. Done well in quality leather it’s that detail of clothing like quality shoes, which enhance your outfit. And at the end of the day doesn’t it all come down to the details? We mixed it up a bit with these new Horween x Leffot Elston belts.
The first is Double Shoulders Wooly Chromexcel in Black 9/10 oz. weight with Scotch grain print and Nickel roller buckle. Wooly Chromexcel is hardy leather made to wear for years and the Scotch grain print ads texture and shows less wear. This is the ideal belt to wear with the Rider Boot Co. Black Grain Chukka.

Belts are measured in the following way.
The second is Illini Latigo in Burgundy 7/8 oz weight with antiqued brass roller buckle. Latigo leather is full grain, fat liquored, mill dyed, pasted, hand glazed and aniline finished. That’s a lot of processes and the result is a beautiful smooth strap in a deep *pull up burgundy. This belt is an excellent less formal alternative to a shell cordovan belt and looks great with color 8 cordovan shoes or boots.
