Silver J Western Wear and Vogt Hand Tooled Leather Belts 12/08/2014

Hand Tooled Western Leather BeltIf you are considering a new western leather belt, you will want to take a look at the belts made by the Vogt Silversmith’s. Yes, this is the same family that designs and creates 100% solid sterling hand engraved buckle sets.  All quality western belts unsnap at the buckle for an easy buckle change.

Our selection of Vogt belts come in three different widths. There is the 1 1/2 ” straight belt, which fits a 1 1/2″ buckle set or your most recent trophy buckle. The 1 1/2″ tapered to 1″ belt fits a 1″ buckle set. The 1 1/4″ tapered to ¾”belt fits the 3/4″ buckle. We also offer a ranger belt that is a 1 1/2″ wide belt with a 3/4″ billet applied and fits a 3/4″ buckle set. In addition to width selection, there is also color choice and tooling design.

The colors that we offer are russet, chocolate, black, black cherry (my favorite) and saddle brown. The designs are basket weave, floral, a basket weave scallop combination, acorn and oak leaf, and running oak leaf.

What customers are telling Jan at Silver J Western Wear:

“Your website doesn’t say enough about the remarkable quality of this belt, I really like this belt.”…Pete from NV. “This belt is fantastic. Just what I was looking for, and it fits!”…Jim from Canada.

Vogt Silversmiths leathers come from the finest tanneries in the United States and Italy. Vogt leather is expensive but well worth it. Top quality leather results in a product that is beautiful, enduring and a good value. Vogt’s highly trained artisans craft each belt by hand, carving and constructing them one at a time.

Like Vogt’s sterling accessories, the family legacy of craftsmanship is transferred to each hand tooled leather item. These beautifully hand crafted western belts are all fully lined with a separate piece of top grain leather stitched to the underside. This lining gives each Vogt belt a truly refined, finished look and feel. Then the edges of each belt are fine stitched and hand rubbed.

Each Vogt belt passes through 22 stages of fabrication and quality control before they are ever worn by the customer. I have read where men didn’t start wearing belts until the 1920’s, so I guess it was suspenders up until then. But if you check out the Clint Eastwood movie, “The Outlaw Josey Whales” or Kevin Costner’s “Wyatt Earp”, they’re wearing belts. Well, maybe they are gun belts, but I don’t see suspenders and their pants are at their waist like you see today and not 4” too high. Looking into this a little further, I found that the military used belts.

Whenever it started, men’s belts have continued to be an important part of a man’s wardrobe. So, if quality, durability and good looks are what you’re looking for in you next belt purchase, Silver J Western Wear is where you will find a great selection with high quality, style, color and design. When it comes to quality, you won’t find a nicer belt and Silver J offers them all at silverj.com.
