    Aug 9, 2006, 9:52 AM - Not so Great source for 100% mohair belts #1

    I've bought two of their (natural) white belts - be wary....

    34" to 60" (for your rounder fett's)
    __________


    UPDATE

    I thought since it was an auction, that the items would be in-hand from them.

    Well - after 20 days, after a few phone calls (not returned), I'm told that their was an error in their supplier and I would have to wait till the middle of september for them.

    So I cancelled the order.

    I would advise against using them.





    Price is $13.50

    Do you have one in hand? Is the entire belt natural mohair?

    The vertical pieces look like nylon in the pic.

    Yes, let us know.

    The last place I ordered said their girthbelts were 100% mohair. They turned out to be 100% nylon...

    Yes they are 100% mohair. The belts they offer are great, but they do take a while to ship them. Took them about 5-6 days to send out after I ordered. I am also waiting for a 38" belt that has been on back order for about 3 weeks now. this is how mine turned out

    So did the middle (ties) parts not take the dye or is it just the picture?

    I finally airbrushed mine after trying multiple time to get it to dye. Bought mine at PetSmart on clearance ($7.99) and the tag said 100% mohair.

    Beware of this seller, hoarseloverz has crapy customer service, when I ordered one they never shipped it, after waiting a month I called a second time after they said it was shipping... and they said there was a "Stock error" I said thats fine, find my belt and ship it!!!! They never did, I had to open a paypal dispute against them to get my refund.

    Thats why I am now getting my stuff elsewhere...

    The middle did take dye just not the exact same shade as the rest. The flash in that photo makes the color difference look worse that it really is.

    You've also got to remeber that the thread on the ties are in a different direction than the rest of the belt. That is why it is thrown off so bad with the flash.

    You can see the same discoloration in the reference pics of the girth belt from AoSW and MoM.

    On these belts is the size of the belt measured from the end of the strap or is it measured from the mohair section? For example, if it is a 34" belt is the mohair part 34" or the total length 34"?
