Pretty much everything's in the mail already and these will probably be the last orders I'll be delivering in 2015.
The first is a shoulderstrap heading to Lubbock TX. It would be standard except the client was very keen on having a 2" wide strap. Buckles in that size, especially brass buckles, are pretty tricky to find. Fortunately I found an old vintage buckle from a fellow Etsy seller so it wasn't any big problem.
And finally we had a local job. My father-in-law had bought an ordinary belt in a local brick-and-mortar store only to find the "genuine leather" it was made from didn't hold up to much wear and tear. After a week or two the vinyl was already peeling off...
Cowhide to the rescue! I gave it a bit of texture to match the original belt a bit better but the biggest selling point is that this belt will have a lifespan of decades, rather than weeks (like all my belts).
