    • You’re not going to want to take off this belt—and you won’t have to (except to sleep). 

      The Old Word Harness belt is crafted from our thickest cut of solid full-grain leather, which means it’s built for everyday, around-the-clock use. Heavy-duty work, responsible concealed carry, or comfortable casual wear—that’s up to you. Just like all of Hanks Belts, the Old World Belt gets any job done, no questions asked (that’s why it comes with our 100-year guarantee). 

      Our master belt makers cut each belt from a remarkable piece of USA-tanned Hermann Oak leather—the same way it’s been done since 1881. The hide’s natural range markings (scars, bites, and scratches) give every belt a texture and color you won’t find anywhere else.

      Each belt tells its own story. 

      It takes a steady, trained hand to turn this extra thick leather into an Old World Belt. Keep it sharp with double-edged stitchwork or embrace the American tradition with a classic, raw-cut edge. This belt feels as natural as it looks—no matter the setting. 

      You could spend all year searching big-box retailers for the right belt only to have it fall apart in a few months. Instead, buy the Hermann Oak Old World Harness belt and enjoy a beautiful piece of USA leatherwork that will be with you for the rest of your life.

      • USA Made
      • USA tanned by Hermann Oak Leather (in business since 1881)
      • Harness leather drum stuffed with tallow
      • Dark edge dye and double row stitching for a classy look
      • No two belts alike
      • Color may vary from picture as these hides contain high volumes of tallow that result in varying dye shades. They will all darken with use.
      • Tannery run leather shows all the natural scars and bug bites that leave no doubt this is full-grain USA harness leather
      • Perfect CCW belt for those that need a more refined look
      • Ages beautifully and develops its own unique look depending on your individual usage
      • 100-year warranty

    • Style Number A2950 - Stitched | A2900 - Plain

    I have 7 or 8 Hanks Belts and they are all fabulous. Having said that, this belt is a stunner! Glad I spent the extra money for it. A great value.

    Best belt I’ve ever worn

    This is the best belt I’ve ever bought. I was a little apprehensive of the cost but once I got the belt in my hands, all my doubts vanished. The quality of this belt is immediately apparent, you know you’re holding something that will last a lifetime. The color and feel of the leather is just gorgeous. The only problem I have now is wanting to buy more belts for different occasions...
