Different Types of Men’s Leather Belts
Making a leather belt from leather is a good way to become involved in leather craft. It just takes a day of fun and some simple tools. First you will need a leather belt buckle, vi nam ca sau some leather basting brushes, some leather stuffs, some leather needles, some leather thongs, some leather clasps, an iron-on bead, and some leather buckles. You will also need some leather ties, some leather lacing pulls, some leather buttons, leather snaps, leather earrings, and leather studs. These tools can be found in any craft store or even in a department store that specializes in leather goods.
Next you will have to go over your leather belt and decide what kind of pattern you want to do. If it is already done, then don’t bother making it another one (unless you want to! ), if you’re planning on making several belts, then make them all the same (see above), or if you have some free time and want to decorate your project, let your imagination go wild. Please help improve your crafts by following the instructions in the resource box below. Your new leather belt buckle should be beautiful and more useful than you thought it could be!
There are many ways to measure the leather belt’s length. There are some standard ways such as cutting a piece of leather at the point where the belt holes lies. But this can be very hard to do and uneven. If your measurements fall apart, then re-do them until they look right. Some folks use the sizing from the metal hooks on their belt; I don’t really think this is very accurate, but you can try both methods. This might be the best way to find out the exact size of the strap that you need.
If you are not using a leather measuring tape, then there are a couple other ways to get the length of the belt you want. First, lay your leather belt flat, making sure it lays flat and doesn’t wobble, then measure along the full length of one end of the belt with your ruler, across the point where the metal joins the leather. This measurement will be called your end-point measurement. Then, take your metal hook and turn the buckle end so that it points towards the ground. This will give you the waistline measurement.
Most people prefer a solid color leather for more formal belts. But if you are in search of a particular hue or style, then go ahead and rock it on a casual outfit. These belts are an easy way to add a splash of color to your casual wardrobe. For a little dressier style, opt for one of the many belts made of corduroy, soft leather, or brushed suede. For an even cozier look, try one of the leather brogues.
And for the ultimate in versatility, make the most of the buckle on your utility belt. You have several possibilities: a flat, rounded, or an oblong shape. A flat buckle is great for shaping and adding shapes to your waist, while a rounded buckle gives you a more traditional, even toned appearance. A long, slender belt with an oblong shape is best worn as an understated but striking utility belt.
