Nightingale Leather Co.
Beautifully finished belt for dress or casual wear. Constructed of two 7 oz layers of American premium Hermann Oak leather, bonded and single stitched together. This 1.5" belt is the perfect width & thickness to carry the heaviest of handguns.
Black, Brown, Cordovan, Mahogany and Natural colors available. Square or rounded buckle in solid brass or solid brass nickel plate are available. Optional Black Shark, Black Elephant, Nicotine Brown Elephant trim available. The trim piece is a 10-12" piece of exotic hide on the front of the belt.
Just a note. I occasionally have long enough pieces of exotic leather to make full length elephant & shark belts. If interested, please contact me at email@example.com for availability and pricing.
Sizing a Belt:
The most accurate way to measure a belt is to use a craft vinyl measuring tape. Feed the measuring tape through the belt loops on your pants or jeans. Note the measurement to the nearest inch just over the button. The belt we make for you will be sized to the measurement you submit from the tip of the buckle to the center fit hole. You can also measure using a belt you currently use now. Measure from the far end of the buckle to the hole you use most often. This measurement may be larger than you think your waist is. Typically, it is 3-5 inches. Also, do not measure a belt that has stretched out. We need to know your actual circumference.
If you plan on carrying IWB (Inside the Waistband), we recommend adding a minimum of 1-2" to the belt length to accommodate the extra thickness of the IWB holster and firearm. We often have returns due to a customer measuring their waist incorrectly or going by the size of their pants. Accordingly, Nightingale Leather will no longer accept returns on any belts. So please measure your waist correctly.
Just a note, the belt will be slightly stiff when you receive it. This is normal. It can take up to a few weeks to a few months of everyday wear to break your belt in. Once it is broken in, you will appreciate the quality and detail of our Nightingale Leather belts.
If you have any modifications you would like to see on your belt, or exotic leathers not listed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your belt build.
