    Considering making a few Jango Girth Belts. Any interest?

    Small run is beginning. Each belt is $250 shipped (extra shipping charge for international orders). Pictures below are the first version. New version differs a bit (see photo in other post). More current photos to come.

    PM if interested I would like to get started with a few by Friday so if you want one, let me know ASAP.

    It's not cardboard that the backing you speak of is made of. It's actually a leather backing, and it helps to keep all of the leather braids together and in place.

    Do they hold together well? I'm interested. I hate the lack of flexibility in my current belt. Also, say some of us go through periods of rapid weight loss/gain, how difficult is it to adjust these?

    Yes, they hold together well. A LITTLE overlapping of the braids now and then but I think it is worth it for the flexibility. I loved wearing it, I could actually bend over to tie my... boot.

    As for sizing it, it is made to fit. I am considering adding some elastic to around the attachment in the back but there is not a lot of room for that sort of thing to make it accurate looking. Still, the braids to stretch a little bit to help you wear it after a particularly big meal or something

    Update and checking in!

    Hey all, just wanted to check in. I want you all to know am still making these but I had some setbacks with family visiting and a few other things- ya know. "Real life"!

    Also my leather supplier no longer has the exact kind of leather I previously used so I am going to have to go to another supplier.

    The tough part is to find that sweet spot between cost and accuracy. I am looking at braids being about 6MM each. This is a bit smaller than the one you see above but they LOOK fantastic. To make sure the belt is wide enough to look good and accommodate a gun belt and pouch belt i would have to go with about 25 rows of braids (instead of the 20 in the original belt I made). Maybe a few more. Here is a picture of the braid I am talking about. I have stacked a few to get an idea of what it would look like. The figure next to it is for scale!

    I just wanted to check to make sure there would be interest in a belt made with this.

    More UPDATES!

    Hey all! I just wanted show you all some pictures of a new belt I created that was just complete, but already in the works before this thread started.








    I have sent PMs to a few of you who are interested. I will be making girth belts for people in the order they answered here. The next two up are:
    TampaFett and C1RCA.

    Remember that the new belts I will be making from now on will look a bit different. The braid will be smaller, tighter and slightly darker (can be lighted up with some weathering/sanding if you wish) and will have a few more rows of braids on the belt to accommodate the smaller size: 6MM. Otherwise, the way they are put together will be the same. I just don't want anyone to order one expecting it to look like the ones seen so far. They will look great, just a little different!

    Also, I have received a lot of interest in these and want everyone to know that I will be able to make one for everyone who wants one. It just may take a little time is all!

    Have a great weekend!
