Types of Leather Belts
There are quite a few types of leather belts available. As you search for the best leather belt, you’ll come across labels like “full-grain,” “top-grain,” and “genuine leather.” In order to find a quality belt, it’s important to understand what each of these labels means and the quality that coincides. Not all leather belts are created equal, and if you are going to invest in a good leather belt, it’s essential to delve deeper into the world of leather quality.
Genuine Leather Belts
A belt with the label of “genuine leather” can be misleading. Yes, this product is made from authentic leather, but the name does not give you any information about the quality of the leather used. As you’ll learn as you continue to read through this section, just because a belt is made from leather, doesn’t mean that it is a high-quality belt. Most of the time, when you see the label “genuine leather,” what you’re seeing is actually a bonded leather belt, which is one of the lowest qualities of leather and we’ll discuss this type of leather in greater detail in just a moment. If a belt was of higher quality, the manufacturer would be proud to put other labels on their product, so it’s usually a good rule of thumb to assume that belts with this label aren’t going to be the most durable or long-lasting.
Bonded Leather Belts
A belt made from bonded leather will very rarely be labeled as such. Bonded leather, sometimes called reconstituted leather, is made of leather scraps that are shredded and bonded together. The actual amount of leather that ends up being in the belt can vary greatly as the leather scraps are usually bonded to a fiber mesh or sheet. Once you understand exactly how bonded leather is made, it becomes obvious why a manufacturer wouldn’t want this label used on their belts. Instead, belt companies typically label these belts as “genuine leather” because they do in fact contain real leather. The quality of these belts is typically not worth the price that you pay.
Synthetic Leather Belts
Synthetic leather belts are another option on the market and contain no leather at all. Instead, just as the name implies, these types of belts are made from materials that are designed to mimic the look and feel of leather. Synthetic leather belts are widely available because they are so cheap to manufacture. Companies that make these fake leather belts tend to sell them for an inexpensive price because they are betting on the fact that their product will fail quickly and you’ll be forced to purchase another one. Many people choose synthetic leather because of the low upfront cost, but in the long run, you’ll end up paying more since it needs to be replaced so frequently.
Full-Grain Leather Belts
Full-grain leather is leather that is made from only the grain, or outer layer of leather. Full-grain leather is minimally processed and usually, just the hair is removed. It does not get sanded or buffed at all, so it’s easy to see imperfections. However, these so-called imperfections are natural and can add a nice aesthetic to a product made from full-grain leather. It also slightly changes color over time, which can add a nice aesthetic. Full-grain leather is a high-quality product; however, you won’t receive a consistent, finished-looking product. This type of leather is often used for saddlery, footwear, and furniture, as it has many characteristics that are desirable in those products. Full-grain leather can make a beautiful, long-lasting belt, however, its particular aesthetics are not for everyone.
Top-Grain Leather Belts
Top-grain leather is also made from the outer layer of leather just as full-grain is, except it is sanded or buffed to create a more finished look that can also be easily dyed. The sanding or buffing of this type of leather also makes it more pliable and softer. When you think of a high-quality leather belt that will last a lifetime and look great whether you’re wearing a pair of jeans with boots or a suit and tie to the office, you’re probably imagining a top-grain leather belt. This belt will typically have a higher upfront cost, but it will be worth it.
At Klik Belts, we make all of our belts from premium top-grain Hermann Oak leather. We take immense pride in providing our customers with belts of the highest quality so you will never receive a bonded or synthetic leather belt from us. When you purchase from Klik belts, you can be absolutely sure that you’re investing in a high-quality leather belt that you’ll love.
The Benefits of Leather Belts
Now that we’ve discussed the different types of leather belts, it’s time to discover the benefits of a quality, top-grain leather belt. While there are many different types of belts on the market, there are none that can quite match the quality and beauty of a nice leather belt. Whether you’re looking for something to wear to the office or casually while out with friends, a leather belt can go with just about anything and will last a long time. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of owning a leather belt.
One of the biggest benefits of owning a leather belt is the durability of the belt. A quality leather belt is something that you’ll purchase once and will have for years to come. The only reason you would need to purchase more than one quality leather belt is if you needed several different colored leather belts. Leather is a strong, durable, and long-lasting material that is ideal for a quality belt that you can rely on.
When it comes to choosing a belt, you won’t find one that looks better than a quality leather belt. Top-grain leather can come in a variety of colors and looks sleek and clean. Whether you need a belt to wear to a business meeting, casually with a pair of jeans, or for everyday wear to the office, a quality leather belt relays the message that you are a professional that takes pride in your appearance.
Another benefit of leather is that it is a natural fabric. It isn’t made from plastic or other synthetic materials. And, because it’s natural, it is also less likely to cause allergic reactions or redness and irritation due to a high concentration of chemicals.
Flexibility and Comfort
Because top-grain leather is sanded or buffed to create a smooth and clean look, it also results in a softer, more flexible material. A top-grain leather belt is extremely comfortable to wear and won’t crack or split the way cheaper belts do with frequent wear. When you choose a leather belt like those from Klik Belts, you can rest assured that you’ll be receiving a product that you’ll be proud to show off and comfortable wearing all day long.
Why Klik Belts Make the Best Leather Belts
After learning about the benefits of leather belts and how to choose a high-quality leather, it’s probably becoming increasingly clear as to why a leather Klik Belt is the best leather belt. Whether you’re choosing your belt based on appearance, durability, strength, or quality, you can’t beat a Klik Belt. Read on to learn all about why Klik Belts make the best leather belts.
Made From Top-Grain Hermann Oak Leather
At Klik Belts, we use only premium top-grain Hermann Oak leather for our leather belts. Hermann Oak has been producing quality leather since 1881 when they were providing settlers traveling west along the Lewis and Clark trails with leather. This company has a long history of creating some of the most durable, beautiful top-grain leather in America, and that’s why we use their leather in each and every leather Klik Belt we produce.
Double-Stitched for Extra Strength and Durability
Each leather Klik Belt is double-stitched. This creates a belt that is stronger, more durable, and longer-lasting than other leather belts. At Klik Belts, we take the time to focus on every detail including the stitching to ensure that it not only adds strength and a nice visual aspect to the finished belt.
Equipped With a Cobra® Buckle
As with all of our Klik Belts, our leather belts also feature a Cobra® buckle. This not only adds to the sleek design of our belts but also lends to their strength. An authentic Cobra® buckle can withstand about two tons of load-bearing pressure, and while we don’t foresee a reason that you would need all of that strength in your belt, you can be absolutely sure that your leather Klik Belt will never fail you.
As we’ve discussed, top-grain leather is a fantastic choice for a belt because of how flexible and comfortable the material is. Our leather belts at Klik Belts are even more comfortable than the average leather belt due to the Cobra® buckle and how easy it is to adjust. You won’t find a more comfortable leather belt than a Klik Belt.
At Klik Belts, our leather belts do not have a traditional prong belt buckle. This means that you will never find yourself trying to decide between two holes with one being slightly too loose and one being a bit too tight. Instead, the Cobra® buckle allows you to easily tighten your belt by gently pulling on the tail to the exact place that is comfortable for you. And, throughout the day, if your belt becomes a bit loose as you move around, you can easily give the tail a tug to tighten it a bit more.
Versatile to Wear for Any Occasion
Another reason that Klik Belts make the best leather belts is because of their versatility. A leather Klik Belt looks fantastic with a pair of jeans, goes perfect with a suit and tie, and can be worn for almost any occasion whether casual or formal. When you purchase a leather belt from Klik Belts, it will be the only belt you ever need.
Perfect for Concealed Carrying
The leather Klik Belt was built for concealed carrying. The strong, double-stitched leather and Cobra® buckle make it ideal for supporting the weight of your firearm and the easy adjustability allows you to carry comfortably. With the leather belt from Klik Belts, you’ll never have to worry about a gun sag, printing, or your gun becoming revealed due to lack of strength, support, or rigidity.
At Klik Belts, we designed our leather belts to not only be strong and durable, but also to look great. A leather belt should be something that you can be proud to wear and should look good with almost any attire. At Klik Belts, we kept this in mind when we designed our beautiful leather belts.
Available in Multiple Color Combinations
When you shop the leather belts at Klik Belts, you’ll have the option to choose from several color combinations. We offer both burgundy leather belts and black leather belts that can be matched with polished aluminum, matte black, or any other Cobra® buckle we carry. No matter your color preference, we have the perfect leather belt for you at Klik Belts.
