Dolce Vita garrison belt

Ooop, forgot to share these pictures from my belt maintenance session last week.

Here is my Dolce Vita garrison belt (a custom collaboration with the shop Clever) – I’ve had it for a short while, and it was time for some oiling & waxing.


It’s a 3.8 cm wide, one-piece design made of 6 mm thick, shoulder-cut steer hide from the US.

The buckle is a scratch-proof nickel/chrome plated buckle which was custom designed for this belt.

It is one hell of a belt, with a nice texture and variable natural markings (which are not readily visible in the photos below, due to the fact that the leather is very shiny from the wax).

The hand-finished back & edges are very nicely done too.

I’ve removed the buckle for maintenance – more pictures coming in a couple of weeks time, including the buckle.

I have a special buckle to attach to this belt (it’s still in transit at the moment), here’s a sneak peak – a Cat’s Paw Rubber Co. buckle from 1976:
