The Foster and Boys 'Pioneer belt' is handcrafted from world class Harness leather and solid brass hardware. It is designed with the worker in mind and is built to last a lifetime.

Hermann Oak Old World Harness leather - just like our Grandfather's used. It is from the same tannery, based in St. Louis Missouri that supplied the wagon trains travelling west on the Lewis and Clark trails in the late 1800's. It is traditionally produced in a pit tanning process where it is stuffed into drums with pure tallows, oleos and waxes, giving it exceptional wear, weather resistance and durability in the field. This technique ensures each hide is unique with slight variations in colour meaning no two belts will be the same.
Overtime, the leather will develop a natural patina which is it's own protective layer. The russet colour will turn a deeper brown adding to it's character as it ages.
Solid brass buckle with an antique finish - strong, durable and won't rust. Held together with custom brass saddler rivets that are as tough as old boots. A hand stitched tail loop is added to complete the piece. We take pride in the small details that bring our products to life.
As the leather is naturally stuffed with waxes and tallows it should take care of itself. However, we recommend Foster & Boys Leather Balm (coming soon), to feed the leather and keep it looking it's best through the years of wear.
Each belt is custom made. Please allow up to two weeks for your order to be crafted. Shipping times depend on the option you choose at the checkout. Due to the pandemic, shipping times may vary.
Each belt is custom made to order. To ensure your belt will fit correctly (as close to the middle hole as possible) it is important that you give us an accurate measurement. The best and easiest way to get this measurement is to measure one of your own belts from the tip of the buckle to the hole that you currently fit (refer to diagram below). Alternatively if you don't have a belt, the next best way is to measure your waist where your pants sit. Please DO NOT give us your pant size as this will not be a correct fit and we do not accept returns for incorrect sizing.
