The Workhorse. This is the belt you have been looking for. If you ever hang a hammer, a holster or any kind of electronic device from your belt, you know how hard it is to find a belt that can take the abuse. The Workhorse can take it. It will hold multiple items without out stretching or breaking. It is extremely sturdy and will provide many years of service. It’s all in the construction. First take Horween Leather ChromeExcell with a tallow finish. That is a naked leather that will accept the oils from your hands and not dry out. Most other leathers have lacquer or a plastic top coat. It keeps the leather clean, but it also makes it impossible for the leather to be oiled and moisturized. Typically a plastic coated leather will dry out and crumble over time. Then the ChromeExcell is backed with heavy weight vegetable tanned sole leather - a stiff strong leather typically used as the outer sole on high end men’s dress shoes. Finally in the middle of the belt, between the two leathers, insert a thin layer of Calcutta Black Kydex T52000 – an extremely durable and rigid thermoplastic. The result. A belt that will never curl over. It won’t dry out. It won’t stretch. It will do what it is supposed to do for a long period of time. In fact probably the thing that will most threaten the wearers long term enjoyment of this belt is an expanding waistline. Stay away from cheeseburgers, work a little oil into the leather every now and then and this belt might well outlast the owner. It’s a real Workhorse.
