I started making custom because I wanted a belt that would fit right! Our Belts are made out of Latigo Leather. We use a 9-10 oz so your belt is thick and will last a long time.They finish up beautiful too! We use a premium roller belt buckle and finish it off with a 12 gauge rivets on the belt loop. These belts are very sturdy and good enough to hang a pistol holster on.
