    Sep 14, 2009, 1:11 PM - Update! #28

    Hey all! I have just about completed two belts. Just some stitching on the connectors and they are all done for Szlemm and TampaFett. I have attached a quick picture of be "wearing" one. It is about 7" wide but for some reason looks much wider in that picture. Odd. This is the new leather type I am using. New braids. Thinner, darking and smoother. They are VERY new looking but weather up VERY nicely. What you see here is an un-weatherd belt. Anyway I will begin contacting some of you who have PM'd me about getting one. These take a bit of time and are costly to make (the leather supplier just raised prices about 25%! Darn them!) so I will be making them only a few at a time. Here is the belt:

    Next small run will be three or four girth belts. Please, since these are all made to order and made size-specific payment is required beforehand. I don't want to be sitting on any of these since they are expensive to make! Thanks!

    How difficult are these to make? I am looking to make one for my son's Jango and I found some leather on M&J that I think would work.

    The belt arrived today & it is incredible! I measured wrong though & it won't fit me & that is without any armor on. It is totally my fault Dave. I should have had my wife measure for me. Any way if someone wants it PM me (belt is 37" & I need a 40" with armor). Will post in the cargo hold soon. If you do another run Dave please let me know as I think your work is great.

    Are those belts made for really tall people or what? That looks to be way way too wide. The real belt had 19 braids and was approximately 5" wide.

    The photo makes it look much wider than it actually is. It is 7", which, according to many on this board, is the approximate width of the actual belt.

    I made it 7 inches to make sure it accommodated the width of the pouch-belt on top of it. If the pouch belt is, say, 3"-4" wide then a 5" girth belt would not allow for much on either side in the way of coverage. It would look way too small, in my opinion. so a 7" belt allows for about 1-2 inches of "peak" above and below the pouch belt.

    That said, The belts can be made to whatever width one may want.

    I don't know who said it is 7" but they are wrong. If you want to make them accurate they should be about 5" with 19 or 20 braids.
