100% Hand Crafted Herman Oak Leather Belts

K K Custom Leather Belts

Our belts here at K K Custom Leather are made in Winnipeg and sold across Canada and the United States. We purchase Herman Oak cow hides directly from Weaver Leather based out of Hope Ohio. Herman Oak is known as the highest quality leather in the industry. Once the hides arrive we cut them into the required widths to manufacture our belts in the sizes of 1/2″, 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″ , and 1 3/4″. At this point we have 53 various styles to choose from.

How our Belts are Made

We start off picking one style to be tooled onto the belt. We add our trademark tip onto each of our belts. The belt goes through the tooling and then stains and dyes are applied to the belt to give it a characteristic color. Once the color has been applied, resolene is added to lock in the stains and dyes which provides the belt with shine for its optimum appearance. The eye holes are punched into the belt to allow the belts to accommodate several sizes. The belt is then sized and then stamped with the size on the belt. The end cap “turnaround” that is fastened to the buckle is also crafted to make this belt interchangeable with other buckles of your choice (to change to a buckle of your choice simply take a common screw driver or a dime from your wallet). This will also allow the belts to be shortened for a custom fit or to be simply shortened at a later date. Next, a keeper is hand tooled to finalize the belts construction. The belts turnaround is fasted to the belt using two Chicago Screws, which hold the desired courtesy buckle and keeper. The final step is the K K Custom Leather logo in a gold foil stamp to identify it as one of our authentic custom made belts.

Since these belts are of high quality leather, the life of the belt (under normal conditions) should last you over 10 years!

C. Choose your width:

We offer 5 different widths (1/2″, 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″, and 1 3/4″). 1/2″ is very skinny so we don’t make a lot of those. Our most common/in stock belts are the 1 1/2″. All of the belts in our online shop are this size. If you order the largest size 1 3/4″ you will have more space above and below the design. If you choose 1 1/4″ or smaller you will start to lose some of the design, depending which you choose. We start our pricing based on size:

53.  1/2″$35.00

54.  1″ $45.00

55.  1 1/4″$55.00

56.  1 1/2″$65.00 (most common/in stock)

57.  1 3/4″$75.00

Here are some comparisons for the different widths:

D. Would you like to add an antiqued look?

On many of our styles, adding antique makes the styles look like they pop right off of the belt! Adding $10.00 more to the cost of your belt could make all the difference! Here are some examples showing the same style and color belt with and without antique.

This belt is a solid saddle tan with no antique. ($65.00)
This belt is a solid red with no antique. ($65.00)
This belt is a solid saddle tan with brown antique. ($75.00)
This belt is a solid red with black antique. ($75.00)

The majority of our belts are antiqued with black or brown. We can also antique with red, silver, gold, white or yellow but the best options are black or brown.

E. Would you like to add a different color border?

Just like adding the antique to the belt, adding a different color border completely changes the look as well. This is only an additional $5.00. By adding this option you make the belt very unique! You have the same color options as the background colors in “B”. Here are some examples:

This belt is tan with brown antique and no border. ($75.00)
This belt has a natural background with brown antique and a tan border. ($80.00)

This belt is tan with brown antique and a mahogany border. ($80.00)
This belt has a natural background with brown antique and a mahogany border. ($80.00)

F. What is your waist measurement?

  • For proper measurement, belt size is 2 sizes larger than your pant size. (ex. If your pants are size 34, your belt size would be 36)
  • For a more accurate size matching (if you have a belt) measure from the bolt hole where the buckle is attached to the belt, to the hole most used on the belt.

G. Additional:

We can customize your belt even further with hand painting, names, initials, etc. The price is determined based on whether there is antique and a border added, as well as the time it takes to be painted or tooled. (price to be determined).

Here are some examples of hand painted belts:

Hand Painted – 1 1/2″ – Diamond Rope

Hand Painted – 1 1/2″ – Horse Floral
Item # 38-56000304-18-HP10
Hand Painted – 1 3/4″ Large Skull
Item # 38-57000100-44-HP35
