Standard Issue Belt-Natural CXL

Standard Issue Belt-Natural CXL


Our Standard Issue belt has been a long time in the making. From the Leather options, the Hardware options, stitching, even right down to the holes punched for the buckle closure, we wanted every detail to be exactly as we envisioned it.

Our requirements were as follows. Firstly, the Buckle had to be brass, and that brass had to be unfinished. We are enamored with how gracefully brass patinas, and as far as we're concerned, if brass is finished with a heavy clear coat or lacquer, it might as well not even be brass.

Second, the Design had to be simple and minimal in ornamentation. Simplicity, however, is not to be taken lightly, nor is it an excuse to cut costs. The most minute details have to be perfect, if not, the imperfections are glaring. 

Third, the Hardware had to be secured in place in a way that was both elegant and rugged, and seamlessly fit with the aesthetic of the belt. Rivets are strong and fast to set, but they seemed too easy an option for what would be a belt to suit nearly any occasion. 

And Finally, we wanted a solution to belt holes that didn't seem so mundane. Something that wasn't just there simply because it had to be for the function of the object, but that added to the aesthetic appeal of the design.

We're proud to say that our vision of the perfect everyday belt has been fulfilled, and its sure to do exactly what we wanted it to do - completely change the perception of what it means to be Standard. 

***Belts are made to order and are not returnable. Please closely examine our instructional photos (the last two in the listing ) to insure you get a perfect custom fit! Using a belt you already own, measure from the point that the leather wraps around the buckle (instructional photo #1), to the hole you use most often (instructional photo #2). Please include this measurement in the "notes" section upon checkout! If you have any issues, or need more info on getting the perfect fit out of your belt, contact us at and we'll be happy to assist you.***
