We here at Indian Creek Leather offer both work and gun belts for both men and women. The only difference between a work belt and a gun belt is the latter usually has a bit more embellishment. Our belts are cut from the back of the hide usually in the 8/10 oz. thickness and then lined with 3/4 oz. veg tan leather. The lining is glued and then perimeter stitched to the belt to produce a thick, substantial belt able to support a large frame auto or revolver without twisting out of shape. This method also makes for a long lasting belt that looks good too. We also offer suede lining on our belts. Below are some examples, along with pricing and our sizing guide.
The following prices are for representation only and are not fixed.
|Custom leather covered buckles||$75.00|
|Ranger style Belts – Add $10.00|
Work & Gun Belt Sizing Guide
Three different belts and how they fasten.
|Straight Belt ~ The leather is the same width its entire length with a buckle secured at one end and holes punched at the other end which to correspond to the buckle.|
|Tapered Belt ~ The body of the belt is uniform in width until it tapers to the buckle billet and tongue billet which is narrower.|
|The Ranger Belt ~ The body of the belt is usually a continuous width its entire length with one end sliding behind the other, and is buckled with two narrower billets that are fastened onto the face of the belt.|
|Each of these belt styles can be used in either work belts or gun belts.|
The sizing of belts is extremely important. For Work or Gun belts slide the tape measure though the belt loops on your pants and pull out the slack, record the measurement. When I fit belts I use the measurement from the front of the buckle where the buckle tongue rests against the front bar, around the body of the belt, to the center hole of the billet.
The center hole is the end of the measurement you recorded. I will then punch three holes on either side of the center hole, which gives adjustment to take up some slack when you are trying to impress someone special or let some out after an unusually good meal. The best way to measure is to take an old belt that fits great and measure from the front of the buckle to the hole that you use the most regardless of which one it is, I can then use that measurement in the same manner as I have just described.
