Our essential handmade vachetta leather men's belt is crystal clear, undyed and perfect for any wardrobe. This is our version of the Louis Vuitton natural handbag look in a premium leather belt.
New for 2021, the CLASSIC VACHETTA leather belt is a request addition to our collection. Available in stainless steel and solid brass buckle choices, this undyed, oak tanned beauty adds natural pop to any wardrobe and is sure to turn heads wherever you go. This natural look is trending up due to the popularity of the Louis Vuitton handbags that made the look famous. This was an easy addition because we were already there with premium vegetable tannages. Most companies that emulate this look use economy skirting, ours is true natural harness so it will not dry and crack. The idea behind such a blonde leather is for sunlight and natural markings through age to make the eventual "character" of the leather. Feel comfortable knowing that we used premium harness leather for this unique leather belt. Three separate clear edge applications as well as labor intensive "burnishing" are hand blended for a hard durable edge. Day or night, the CLASSIC VACHETTA is a must have for any fashionable wardrobe. We have stayed true to the strength and durability of premium saddle leather even as American native steer prices have skyrocketed. Rest assured that in your lifetime you will never break a hole. In two generations of belt making, we have never seen this happen.
Wearing natural leather can have the ability of connecting us to our environment in ways we may not understand. For man, the process of tanning leather with roots and bark from trees goes back to the cave. Thousands of years of evolution physically join man and leather to nature and survival.
Owning a naturally tanned leather belt is both a privilege and a luxury. After 2 years, condition your leather belt with 2 light coats of 100% pure lanolin, Neatsfoot oil or any other fossil fuel free, high quality conditioner. If ever dirty, clean only with saddle soap. Remember, when it's dry reapply.
