    • A gorgeous hand-stitched concealed carry belt that really is a piece of art. Hanks Old World Harness Belt is a true piece of American craftsmanship. USA Made from full-grain Hermann Oak Old World Harness leather this belt is unsurpassed in feel and looks.

      Available in either a classic raw edge without stitching for a genuine hand-cut appearance or a stunning double stitch with rich oak edge dye.

      The double edge stitching is done by hand by the Master Amish belt maker by making one pass, turning the belt, and then stitching the second row. No double needle machine here. It takes skilled hands for that fine detail work and the result is simply stunning.

      Stuffed in drums with heavy tallow this leather is weather-resistant and soft yet durable and develops a patina that can't be created any other way than simply by wearing. Each belt will develop its own look depending on your individual usage and soon will be like your favorite pair of worn-in jeans.

      We use the extra heavy 16 oz. and over hides called tannery runs. Tannery runs allow all the scars and bug bites to show which gives this belt its rich full-grain look. It also results in no two belts being alike as the color and markings will be different from hide to hide. If you want a belt that looks like everyone else's then this is not the belt for you. These are stunning, heavy belts just like your great grandfather would have worn.

      These hides also vary in weight by as much as 3 oz. from butt to shoulder so there will be some variances in thickness along the length of the belt. This is by design and gives these belts the handcrafted that is so desirable. Rated at 16 oz. these belts can have areas that go as high as 19 oz. on them. A great look and feel and the way nature intended this leather to be.

      This is a superb CCW belt and the thickness supports most firearms with ease and looks great. This belt works well for either IWB or OWB carry and will support your rig with confidence which is all part of responsible concealed carry.

      You would spend all year looking in big box stores for a belt like this and never even come close. Stylish and pure quality, this is a belt that will truly be with you for years to come.

    Harness Belt

    Bought it for my DAD he loves it. I wish it was a darker brown if I was going to buy one for myself.

    Wonderful belt. Quality and looks are top drawer. If I had purchased this belt 40 years ago, I'd still be wearing it today.

    What a belt!

    I bought a hefty leather belt years ago, but it eventually became my work belt and no longer would cut it as a dress belt. When I went to buy a new one, the company that made it had gone out of business. A friend told me about Hank's, so I checked out their website. I wanted something that would look good with jeans, and settled on this belt after browsing around. When it came, it was just a little too small (it fit, but I knew I'd have this belt for a long time, and still being on the young side, I wanted room in case I gain weight). The return process was seamless and effortless, and I soon had my correct size. Been wearing it for a few weeks now, and I love it! It's WAY thicker than the previous belt, and is very stylish. I'm very happy with my purchase, and will definitely be buying from Hank's again! I'm looking forward to some day passing this belt down to my kid, if I ever get there!

    Every part of my experience purchasing this Old world harness leather gun belt was stellar. The sizing is spot on. The customer service is the best I have ever seen anywhere and this is without a doubt the best leather belt money can buy. Thank's Bruce
