The History of A Leather Belt Buckle

When referring to a leather belt, belt buckle is what we can’t miss. In fact, there is evidence of ornamental belts and buckles as far back as the 6th and 7th century in Britain and possibly anything as early as the first century with the Romans or earlier. Buckles are typically seen as more of a decorative rather than functional adornment.

As the beginning of the 20th century approached and trouser styles changed, the belt became more of a wardrobe essential and less of a pretty accessory. Up to this point, trousers weren’t worn on the waistline, but further up, further down, and all over the place, fastened with clips, clasps, cords and strings, but the modern trouser style was crying out for a better method of remaining elevated – hence the surge in popularity of buckled belts.

Military style belt buckles continued their popularity as a result of both world wars and cowboy style belt buckles saw a surge in the popularity of buckles as a fashion accessory. They have retained their popularity to this day and still feature as a style icon in the world of fashion, with intricate metal work, adornments in jewels and styles made in a whole host of materials, from metal to bronze to gold and platinum.

We have seen a resurgence in the popularity of belt buckles in the late 20th century to now, with great new developments in style as well as function, melding technology and style with mass production and small, artisan produced buckles designed and built for the wearer to their requirements. It’s almost like we’ve come full circle, from the ornamental to the functional and back to the ornamental, with belt buckles now popular again and making a point about style, status, wealth and position.

Now the choice is yours. Hundreds of thousands of styles are out there and available, from the intricate to the bulky, the flashy to the functional, old school brass or new school LED buckles. They might have been around for thousand of years, but we can tell you, they never had a choice like we’ve got today!

Five Belts Every Girl Should Own

When it comes to styling, the icing on every fabulous ensemble is the accessories that adorn it. With winter still in progress  it’s all about layers, and the right collection of belts is ultra-crucial to pulling off a seamless look. Not only can the right belt accentuate your body’s natural curves, but this simple addition has the power to turn a little black dress into a fabulously decorated canvas. Ready to step up your belt collection, but not sure which styles to invest in? Below is my fashion guide to the five belts every girl should own.

Classic

belts girls should own

This belt is a no brainer. Every girl should possess a classic black and brown belt. Whether you pair it with casual denim or career trousers, this belt is an accessory staple. This is also the best investment piece when it comes to belts, so don’t feel guilty for spending a little extra when adding this classic piece to your wardrobe.

Animal-inspired

This belt is a no brainer. Every girl should possess a classic black and brown belt. Whether you pair it with casual denim or career trousers, this belt is an accessory staple. This is also the best investment piece when it comes to belts, so don’t feel guilty for spending a little extra when adding this classic piece to your wardrobe.

Woven

belts girls should own

As a self-proclaimed dress fanatic, I can’t stress the importance of a woven belt enough. This style is best when tied to add styling flair to your ensemble. I suggest sticking with brown or tan to ensure its versatility. And the best part… the unlimited sizing options allow for the ideal fit whether you wear it around your natural waist or your hips.

Bright and bold

belts girls should own

Looking to spice up a simple dress for a girls’ night out? A bright belt can make a major impact with minimal styling efforts. Since color trends change with each season, be budget-conscious with this purchase. I always suggest investing in a medium to small width. Since the eye-catching color is sure to stand out, be conscious of where you place it on your body, to avoid unwanted attention.

Wide

belts girls should own

A simple yet powerful wide belt is best showcased when placed on empire waist dresses or for creating shape when wearing a shift dress. The extra size makes it ideal for taming bulkier pieces like a cargo jacket. Invest in a wide belt and you’re sure to have unlimited styling options. To add an extra dash of style, layer this belt over a chunky faux fur vest.

You can find leather belts in just about any color to match your ensemble. The great thing about leather belts is that they are very versatile. They can be worn with a business suit, slacks or even a nice pair of jeans. The care for the leather belt is minimal and they are designed to last. You can also find leather belts that are made with both leather and suede for a more unique look.

2. Suede Belts

These belts are usually a more casual style belt; you might find men wearing them with slacks or even jeans. The look is very stylish and creates a flare for even the plainest of outfits. You can find suede belts in an assortment of colors.

3. Two Tone Belts

These belts help create a more casual look to a formal outfit or can be worn simply as a casual belt. They are normally found in leather and are offered in a variety of mixed colors. The classic oxford style of dark brown and tan mixed is a very popular and classy style for this particular type of belt.

No matter what you are wearing, a belt can help add some much needed style to the outfit. With a suit, you should always wear a belt and slacks almost always will look better with one on. Jeans may be worn with or without a belt, but with one always seems to add more style and create a more stylish look. The most important thing to remember is that you never want to be caught with your pants down or even just drooping, so a belt is the best answer to ensure this never happens.

Greatest Ways to Reuse An Old Belt

It seems that I’m more sentimental about my belt than other items of clothing, perhaps it’s because they get worn much more frequently, and thus accumulate a lot more associated memories. So I have got so many cool ideas for using the belts, and now, may I present…

ways to reuse old belts

1. Turn it into a headband! If your favorite belt has broken in two, never fear.  Check out this great tutorial if you don’t believe me. It’s surprisingly adorable. All you need is some scissors and a short length. A little creativity helps too!

2. Use a wide belt to display a photo by cutting it into four sections that fit together like a picture frame. Or, gather up your biggest and bestest belt buckles and create a collection of amazing miniature frames.

3. Use a weathered, worn belt to add flair around the house. The right type will look amazing for hanging a wall clock (cradling it, like a sling), or encircling a decorative basket, or embellishing an ordinary storage box.

4. Bring it on a camping trip, along with some storage hooks (s-hooks), and you’ve got yourself an instant kitchen rack. Simply strap the belt around a sturdy tree, then hang the hooks from the belt, and hang your kitchen equipment from the hooks. Go MacGyver!

5. One of the easiest ways to reuse your belt is as a jewelry display. This works especially well for pins and brooches (on a cloth belt) or for earrings (on a double-punched belt).

6. It’s not just fantasy from the movies — a leather strap can sharpen a knife! And a leather belt stands in splendidly. Start by rubbing rouge oxide into the backside of the belt. Stroke the knife blade along this side of the belt, flipping the knife over to get each side. Then, repeat this motion on the top side (smooth side) of the belt. Keep your sharpening belt stashed in your kitchen, near the chopping block.

7. If you feel like getting a little bit artsy, and have a few belts that are beautiful enough to display, you can use them as cabinet door pulls. Simply cut a short length and affix a loop to the front of each cabinet for a gorgeous modern rustic look.

8. And perhaps my very favorite, because it’s just so cool looking. You can use your entire worn-out-belt collection to transform an old chair into quirky perfection by removing the old seat and using the belts to weave a new one. Just fasten the belts to the bottom of the chair and work a simple weave across the seat. It’s so easy and the visual effect is striking.

How to Make a Wallet That Will Last the Rest of Your Life?

It’s a source of pride to build something that you can call your own, wallet is no exception. Your wallets are getting more use and abuse than any other accessory throughout your daily life. So, why not make your own? We have provided a basic blueprint that is streamlined with a clean, modern look. This wallet design is known as an Ambrosian manifold, consisting of four pieces of leather that are folded and stitch-assembled into a bi-fold wallet with a single pocket for bills and six pockets for cards.

handmade wallet

Leather

You will need about two square feet of material. We recommend vegetable-tanned leather that is of 2oz thickness. It is possible to use other types of leather, but it is important that the leather be relatively rigid to ensure a firm wallet.

handmade wallet

Stitching

Find a color that compliments the color of leather you chose. Using a thread color that is darker than your leather is usually a good start.

Tools

Scissors, razor blade, straight rule, two pushpins, awl (or something similar like an ice pick), and two ball point stitching needles.

Construction

handmade wallet

STEP 1

Whether you decide to create your own design or use the pattern we have provided, the first thing you will need to do is to print the design and cut out the paper patterns. Next, trace the patterns onto a sheet of leather.

handmade wallet

STEP 2

Then carefully cut the pieces out of the leather. Cutting the leather with clean lines will be made easy by using a rotary blade alongside a straight edge ruler. After the pieces are cut out, you need to punch stitching holes into the leather.

handmade wallet

STEP 3

Now you are ready to assemble the components together. The smaller pieces A and B are layered on top of C, which all goes on top of D. Next, fold the leather to see where the holes should line up. Creasing the leather thoroughly will make stitching much easier.

handmade wallet

STEP 4

To begin, start with the blue stitching path. For this path you need about two feet of thread. Pass one needle through the first hole at the starting point of piece B. Pull through until there are equal amounts of thread on both sides of the leather. Take one needle and start it through the next hole from the same side of the leather. Start the other needle through the same hole from the opposite side. Grasp both needles and pull through until the stitch is good and tight. After the fourth hole, you will need to begin binding piece D to piece B. Once you have reached the end point, you will need to pass both needles to the back side and weave the threads, as shown in the middle image, so they are both sticking out of the back side of B. Take these two needles from the back side of B and add on piece C.

STEP 5

To end the blue path, weave the needles between the two aligned holes of B and C, as shown in the images above. At this point, check that the stitching is good and tight all along the blue path and make any tension adjustments needed. If all is fine, you can tie off the two threads by making three consecutive overhand knots.

handmade wallet

STEP 6

The red path is the inverse shape, but same technique as the blue path. Following the same routine, stitch piece A to D and C. Tie off the red path and leave about a quarter-inch of remnant thread.

handmade wallet

STEP 7

At this point you are ready to move on to stitching paths green and yellow. The first 18 stitches of these paths will be spent binding A and B to C. Once you get to the corners, you will begin to include piece D into the stitching and close up the side of the wallet.

handmade wallet

STEP 8

The end points of the green and yellow stitching paths bring you to the corner fold of part D. At these corners, you can bring the threads through the middle, tie them off with three knots, cut the remaining thread, and tuck the knot into the corner fold. Your wallet is DONE!
