7 OGL Leather Belts for you

Belts, the one accessory that all man needs but most neglected. You know that when you are a belt maker…

Throughout the years of belt making in Obbi Good Label, we encountered men coming up with exquisite taste of styles and boots, but lacking a good belt. And during these years, we did our part by recommending suitable leathers and belt styles for these people.

Consolidating our records of public preferences, we selected 7 popular belt styles for release of OGL 2014.

Natural vegetable-tanned leathers of cowhide double-bends, matched with different types of buckles selection. Just by the feel of their thickness at approximately 5mm or more, you know they last a lifetime.

Converting an pair of 21oz Iron Heart Beatle Buster

Got a request to hem a pair of buster to a summer shorts, and balance for a lappy sleeves.

image

Balance of about 16inch, open it up and cut out the selvage for detailing later

image

The jeans is slim tapered, therefore the orientation of the bag is curve to a side, try my best to trimmed it for possible beat alignment.

image

Has been converting denim balance, so not a difficult task at all, selvage made tp the top flap, a clean but tough case

image

image

image

Enhanced the flap with another heavy ounce canvas, for a more robust look, with also another part of the selvage as opening

image

I always reject to custom work for technology related products, because our product are build to last and age, and techie gadget change pace too fast, however i have thought of a possible design for this bag, that can fit from a 11.5 to a 15 inch from an enhanced technique to convert the case flap covering in a way to hold different sizes.
