Time and attention is put into choosing the material used for Lone Wolf Leather hand made products. These belts are no exception. They are made of top grade Chromexcel leather from Horween Leather Company in Chicago, Illinois and maybe the best solid brass buckles on the market.
The tanning recipe for Horweens Chromexcel leather is over one hundred years old. In fact it dates back to 1913. Chromexcell leather is first tanned with a mixture of chrome tanning (chrome salts) and thereafter the leather is retanned using a traditional veg tanning process (bark extracts). This gives Chromexcel leather the best qualities of both tanning processes. The soft, supple, and durable qualities of chrome tanned leather and the round and full qualities of veg tanned leather that patina well. After the tanning process the leather is "hot stuffed" with oils, greases and bees wax that give the leather its characteristic pull up. The leather is finally hand dyed using an aniline stain. The characteristic "tea core" patina will show after use when the top stain wares off and the underlying leather color becomes visible.
The buckles are top grade solid brass and there is a choice of five different buckles. The Square & Twisted and The Fireman's Buckle are from a U.S. supplier and The Octagon and The Garrison Single Prong and The Garrison Double Prong are all Japanese high quality. The buckles are attached using solid brass Chicago screws making for an easy shift of buckles should you like to do so.
Belt width = 1 ½ inch or 38 mm. Please check "Sizing Chart" in the above menu to measure correct lengths.
