Buckle Up: A behind the scenes look at our handcrafted leather belts
We've teamed up with a 3rd generation leather-craftsman to produce our belts right here in Montreal. Raymond, whose grandfather made boots for the French Army, walked us through how the belts go from raw top-grain French cowhide (naturally tanned in Italy) to a stylish piece that keeps your pants off the floor and pulls your look together at the same time.
Cut & Trim
The cowhide is trimmed across the grain. Cut along the animal's spine and it would stretch out too much. It's run through a slicer that cuts the hide into precise belt-like strips.
The strip is then run through a machine that cuts and cleans the back, punches the holes, cuts the tip and engraves our name into the back.
Bevel & Skive
The leather is beveled to round the edges of the belt, as well as varnished for a soft, smooth feel. The end is skived down so that it can be folded and stitched.
Stitch & Burn
The belt is run through a programmable sewing machine and the threads are then burned with a hot gun. If they aren't, they are liable to come loose. It's the small details that make a major difference in quality.
Et voilà: a handcrafted, genuine leather belt made with old-world quality that never goes out of style.
