    Originally I would've gone with natural then dyed it myself but now that I take another look, the red-brown does look pretty good.

    Thanks to JD who helped me on my googling by sending me a link to something that gave me a lead on what to search for.

    ...and all the people who hand-braided their belts go.... "OH CRAP!"

    NICE FIND MAN!!! I dont think it gets ANY better or more accurate than that! I think perhaps this thread should be stickied or merged into the already stickied belt thread.

    The real deal.

    The braided rope.

    Any difference? I cant see much of a difference, besides maybe the lighting, they are pretty much exactly the same. Nice find!

    Awesome find, Foxbatkllr.

    What do you all think of Antique Dark Brown? That one looks
    more accurate to me than the Red Brown? Any thoughts?

    Thanks...but the Antique Dark Brown isn't available in 6mm...so its worthless...

    The only two colors available in 6mm (1/4") is the Natural and Red-Brown.

    Well your average Jango will probably need a yard per braid so 19 yards?

    I emailed them to see if it would be possible to get it in 6MM. So lets keep our fingers crossed.

    Well if you get it "natural" you can dye it whatever color you want.

    I would use a leather dye, if you try that.

    Oh yeah, but I am wondering if they are coated or sealed or anything to interfere with the dye uptake.

    or, you could just buy some leather "binding" and plait it yourself. It looks like a standard "4 plait". It's dead easy to do.

    Yeah, but for those people who don't have the patience or time...this is a good alternative.
