Dating back to the 1840's, the Ranger Belt originated in Texas and is very much an American Western iconic style. The sewn on billets were designed to give the belt added rigidity to hold the weight of a revolver. Like all great designs, the Ranger Belt has stood the test of time. Today we offer several variations of the original Ranger Belt but with a modern day feel. 

The Shell & Horsehide Ranger belt is the finest and most detailed belt we have ever built. Made from a combination of Horween® Shell Cordovan and CXL Horsehide. The tip and back billets are shell cordovan that are double layered and stitched before attached the base of the belt. Because shell cordovan is expensive and the size of the shells are limiting, you really don't see many shell cordovan belts today. This is one of the very first we have seen in a Ranger Belt. The base is cut at a 1-¼" width, so more of a dress belt size. It is made with smooth and sleek Horween® horsehide then stitched to a vegetable tanned nubuck backing. The billets are double layered and stitched separately (not common in Ranger belts). The edges of the billets and the base belt are hand stained, waxed and polished all by hand. We finish the belt with a classic heel bar, solid brass buckle that we import from Italy. Includes dual, double layered and stitched keeper and Chicago screws to remove or change the buckle.

It's truly a unique and handsome belt that you will not find anywhere else today. Read more about Horween® Shell Cordovan and Horsehide below.

  • Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan is quite possible the finest leather in the world. Unique in many ways, shell cordovan is known for it's extreme durability, extraordinary bright luster and glass-like surface and the rich cordovan aroma.
    The entire tanning process goes through around 100-processes and takes a full 6-months to complete tan, making this the ultimate "Artisan Tanned Leather".  Cordovan is more than just a color, it is a very specific leather from the "butt" of a horsehide.  The oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished over six months. 
    Each shell is slowly steeped in gentle vegetable liquors then hot stuffed & slicked onto glass frames to dry.  They are hand curried and shaved by highly skilled artisans to expose the shell and the dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish. Finally, the shells are hand glazed to achieve the rich, glossy look and feel prized by fine craftsmen.
