    • The Premier Double Leather Gun Belt - 18 oz. - 1.5"

      A leather gun belt that is in a class of its own. When you are ready to step up to a belt that stands apart from the rest take Hanks 1.5" wide Premier Double Leather English Bridle Belt into consideration.

      No other belt comes close to the quality of this belt, in this class, at this price. Comparable belts can cost upwards of $185.00 and still won't measure up to the quality, feel, durability, and construction of this USA handmade belt.

      We start with the best genuine USA made vegetable-tanned bridle leather on the market. Vegetable-tanned leather is more expensive than traditional chemically tanned leather primarily because of the skill required to tan the hides. It's a 200-year-old process handed down through generations of skilled craftsmen. This same skill, though, results in hides of much higher quality. Plus:  

      • Vegetable-tanned leather
      • When all-natural tannins are used it results in each finished piece having its own unique look. No two hides are exactly the same so they each have their own characteristics.
      • A vegetable-tanned leather gun belt gets richer and warmer looking with age. Like a fine wine, their desirability increases over time developing a rich warm patina that simply can't be duplicated any other way.
      • The colors from vegetable-tanned leather are warm, natural, and rich-looking.

      Once we had the leather we wanted we didn't skimp on the hardware. Rugged solid stainless steel roller buckles give a refined, classy, but masculine look. The roller buckle makes fastening and unfastening your belt a breeze.

      Want to change the buckle to one of your choosing? No problem. We use rugged, yet handsome, Chicago screws to hold the belt together so you can easily swap buckles. The screwed together construction ensures your belt stays fastened, unlike snaps.

      Once we had everything laid out we decided to make this belt the most dependable, durable belt on the market. So we doubled up and sewed two pieces of this quality leather together making the original Hanks Double English Leather Bridle Belt complete. The result is a leather gun belt that looks good enough to wear with a sports coat and slacks and rugged enough to function as the premier CCW belt. 

      The perfect addition to any discerning man's wardrobe or the perfect gift for the man that appreciates the quality of fine handcrafted USA made leather products.

    Another Beautiful Belt!

    The Premier is super good looking and tough. It is a double belt with each layer a bit more obvious than on my Bison Belt. This is not a bad thing, just an observation. The stitching is so precise it’s hard to believe that it is hand sewn. I have to upsize with double belts (4inches above pant size) and only wear my regular belt size with single layer belts. It’s amazing how stiff these belts are and how, like a quality boot, break in to your body as they warm to body temperature. These are American Craftsmanship at its finest!

    Love really love the belt. It’s a beautiful belt. I went a size up from my normal pants size even like that it didn’t fit on me. I returned and order another size up. But great looking belt I love it

    Amazing Belt

    I am very happy with the belt. However, I was surprised by how thick the belt is. It is probably at least 3x thicker than a normal belt. Despite that, it fits very well and goes through all my belt loops. It will definitely last forever. I highly recommend.
