    USA-made belts?

    I'm looking for any USA makers of belts, the kind that holds up a man's trousers. Belt does not have to be fancy, just a belt.

    Just today, the buckle popped off a new belt I bought from Bon-Ton in March. Belt looks like it was rotting away. Bummer.

    Any ideas who makes quality belts in the USA?

    Actually, I tried Google, but I wound up seemingly everywhere but there.

    Thank you for the link.

    Your best bet is a craft show - most shows will have at least one leatherworker. That way you get to met the maker *and* get a quality belt!

    Most quality hand tooled Western Belts are USA made. I wear one with a USA made buckle to boot! No pun intended
