When this one wears out I'll replace it from the same source.
Same here if mine ever wears out. Great product, will outlast dozens of cheap belts.
I know what really did it in though. I built a 24x40 garage almost entirely by myself through the spring summer and fall of southern heat. I have toxic sweat. My Estwimg hammer is all pitted with rust now. I have wheeled the rust off and oiled it twice since but it continues to rust away. I could probably get a free replacement from Estwing.
Anyway, the belt started delaminating. The stitching broke. I resewed it a few times as I had started leatherworking at that point. Eventually the hole I used broke away and started a tear that went down to the next hole.
I retired it in all it’s glory and would not hesitate to buy another. It lasted eight years and probably would have lasted eight more if I had either maintained it or never built that garage.
Anyway, I rarely carry because I work in NJ but I wear the belt literally every day. Lets say I have worn the belt 5000 times. It's still looking great but I'm thinking about ordering another.
I have one of his and likely will buy another in the future...off of his website.
I wear mine as a dress belt all the time.
I have migrated towards scuba webbing belts but there is certainly a time and place for a nice leather belt.
