In partnership with Iwasaki, (a ninety-four year old family business located in a beautifully scenic region of Japan) our new Japanese Crafted collection reflects their mantra that "quality never goes out of style." Each hand-finished leather belt features a smooth rolling brass buckle, and is expertly crafted in Japan with fine quality bridle leather—giving the skin individual character that uniquely improves with age.

Review 1 for Japanese Crafted Leather Belt - Black
Good quality, but Runs Small
PostedJuly 1, 2014
Runs Very Small
Runs Very Big
Compared to typical US sizing, the belt run small, by about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inches. Good quality simple narrow buckle, which I would normally like, but unfortunately the narrow dimension of the buckle subtracts another 1/2 inch from the waist size.
About 3/16, almost 5 mm, thick. The folded end behind the buckle is over 3/8 inch, or 10 mm thick, and will go through the first belt loop on a typical pair of Levis, but only just, so if you plan on wearing it with other jeans, check the belt loop size.
The buckle looks like it is removable, although I have not tried, since I have to exchange mine because of the small size.
Good quality leather, with a smooth matte finish on the outer (Grain) side. May not be "Bridle" leather by strict definition, because the inner side (Flesh side), is not a smooth finish.
I recommend this product!
