The 1.5" SHELBY leather belt is our best selling men's black/blue color combination. Sewn in two tone blue parachute thread, this premium black leather belt is easily the nicest men's denim or jeans belt you'll ever find. Wear this belt and be as bold as the Texan who designed the car. Our blue on black leather belt is also an American handcrafted original…designed and crafted in our Arizona workshop and copied in China and Italy for European markets, be assured that this belt is the American original.
Like all of our saddle leather belts, the SHELBY is made of one full grain piece of premium leather. It is available in narrow (1.25" / 32mm) and wide (1.75" / 44mm) widths.
In 2011, we purchased 13 spools of the discontinued lighter color steely blue thread from Paragear Manufacturing for use on this belt. Unfortunately thread minimums on new color orders at American & Effird prevent future reordering of this unique blue thread making this belt a limited edition! This thread is valuable to me and we store it in climate and humidity stable locker. We simply will not compromise quality and go with a cheaper offshore thread source. I put a Lifetime Guarantee on the stitching that goes into all our belts. The motto is…”If you blow it, we sew it.” Send it back to us for repair…for life.
High quality, durability, and style. We don't need to tell you this one, but...That is "What Makes Us Different."

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.

I ordered The Shelby for my son for Christmas. When it didn't ship I contacted them and got a response in a couple of hours. Was told it didn't meet their standards and was being remade. It shipped when they said it would and arrived in time for Christmas.
Perfect! I purchased this particular belt several months ago for my husband. I have looked high and low for a good quality, thick leather belt and just couldn’t find one worthy. Everything peeled or broke or was just horribly made. I found az belt company online and purchased the Shelby. When he opened the package I could see by the look on his face that I had done a good thing! I’ve never seen him like a belt more! Honestly it reminds me of being back in a good saddle shop. Everything high-quality always, good equipment. Same thing with this belt company. I just came back a couple of nights ago and bought three more belts and a dog collar! In my husband’s words, THIS belt will last me the rest of my life! Thank you AZ belt company! We won’t bother going anywhere else ever again.
Hello! I'm writing this because I am truly blown away by the quality of the two belts I ordered and received in a matter of four days, ( Christmas rush no less!) I spoke with the company owner, Manny, who coached me through the selection process insuring me I would receive exactly what I ordered. (At no extra cost to me, he stitched 2 inside and 2 outside rows to add detail to one of belts I chose - they are both out of this world for quality, looks, and the same goes for the company itself!! Six stars from this honest reviewer! You'll see for yourself - and they fit perfectly as I used the sizing chart provided! Hats off to Manny and the crew who make these splendid Belts, made in the USA!!
I have had the privelege of seeing how some of these belts get made by hand. I have a few of them and my personal favorite is my heavy blue one called the Shelby. It's amazing and has cool stitching and I'm sure I'll have it the rest of my life. That's no exaggeration. Thank you Manny and Brenda!
