Almost 20 years ago I attended ‘Beef Week’ in Rockhampton to promote leathercraft. One customer asked if he could get a leather belt made while he stood and watched. After making the first belt, the person behind him wanted one too and soon there was a queue forming for handmade leather belts.
And so the concept of ‘The Belt Man’ was born.
I made some basic workbenches and prepared a display to promote my high quality, hand made leather belts. The difference being that these leather belts were ‘made while you wait’.
I took my leather belts to the Brisbane EKKA and was amazed at the demand. We had premade leather belts, but most customers wanted to choose their own leather and match it with their choice of buckle. They liked seeing their own custom, leather belt being handmade right there in front of them.
Since then The Belt Man has exhibited at 15 – 20 shows per year across the east coast of Australia. You can find The Belt Man at agricultural field days and major country shows like Beef Week, Brisbane EKKA, Ag Quip and Farm Fest.
Our belts are handmade from one piece of solid, high quality leather, which means they wear well and will last. We have customers who have worn the same leather belt every day for more than 10 years!
There are plenty of cheap laminated belts available but they just don’t last. These belts have a very thin layer of leather on the top, padding in the middle and suede on the bottom. The Belt Man belts are made of higher quality material. Our belts are solid leather and will never split or delaminate.
We offer a wide range of colours and finishes of leather so our customers can find just what they are after. We also offer a range of buckles in a variety of finishes, shapes and different materials. Finally our leather belts are assembled using chicago screws so the buckle can easily be changed if required.
For a custom, hand made, high quality leather belt you simply can’t do better than The Belt Man.
