5 out of 5 stars I would definitely buy again based on the service alone. However, the quality is remarkable; it matches the description and met my expectations. The standard length is slightly longer than my Hermès leather band (needed this) and has more clasp holes (for smaller). I can’t wait to replace this orange Hermès leather with my new armbands by EpTxSaddleCO.

alligator leather belt

Very high quality, Abraham worked with me to pick the colors and cuts that i liked and i got the belts less than a week later after making my order. Very easy to tell the hides are high quality and the craftsmanship is top tier. Will definitely be buying again.

Brown Rustic Cape Buffalo Leather Belt

Very happy with the belt. it´s usually hard to impress me or make me happy and I am very happy with the product so far. I was looking for a long time for a belt to match my R Watson Tan Cape Buffalo boots and these did the trick. They match very well. Obviously I can´t speak on longevity as I just bought it, but right now I don´t have a single complaint. Seller responded quick when I had a question, shipped quick, and makes very nice products based off of this Buffalo belt. Def recommend, and price point is more than fair.
