“Golf” Concho Belt
Made to the same level of uncompromising craftsmanship as the FootJoy belts of the same vintage, this is among the finest genuine Everglades Alligator belts in the world.
The traditional engraved Western buckles are further ornamented with several Conchos (from the Spanish concha “shell”) distributed along the length of the belt. The golf motif faithfully echo the traditional Native American motifs of the American Southwest. Of course the alligator skins are padded and backed with an uninterrupted length of belt-strength calf skin for durability and the conchos are held securely in place by steel rivets. Like all natural materials, each lizard skin is slightly different and so your belt can be said to be one-of-a-kind.
Note: I have left the buckles unpolished to show that these are tarnishable silver. A drop of polish when you receive them shall do the trick! I have not been able to find exotic leather belts of comparable quality except at the following website:http://jrltd.com/sterling_silver_belt_buckles_14kt_18kt_gold_western_alligator_belts/
While the belts shown here are nominally for gentlemen, they would make inspired gifts for ladies to wear with a variety of dress including jeans.
The given measurement are from the inside far end of the buckle to the second hole in the tongue, in other words leaving 5cm (2 inches) extra for expansion, and 2cm (3/4 inch) to tighten, if unlike me, you are ever to lose weight.
38 inches (96 cm.)
Inches 30 32 34 36 38 40

These skin, like those used in all products shown here, were harvested legally under the dictates of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Endangered Species Act of 1973.
