Working Man's Leather Belt

The Working Man’s Belt by American Bench Craft is 1.5” wide and more than 1/8” thick. The buckle we use with our Working Man’s Belt is secured with snap fasteners, so the buckle can easily be switched out with your own custom buckle if you prefer.

Our black leather Working Man’s Belt is available with stainless steel hardware, and our brown leather belt is available with solid brass. Our belts are heavy-duty, rugged and extremely durable. They can be stylishly worn with any pair of jeans, khaki pants or shorts.


For proper sizing we suggest one size larger than you normal pant size, so if you typically wear 32” waist pants, please select one of our size 34 belts.

The Process:

Your Working Man’s Belt is constructed from a single strip of our premium, full grain, vegetable-tanned leather, which is cut to size once you place your order (please contact us for custom sizing). We stamp and finish your belt using simple hand tools for an entirely handcrafted product, proudly Made-in-the-USA.

Why a Single Strip of Leather?

Simple products are more durable. Fewer parts equal less susceptibility to failure.  The single piece design ensures our belts will last for years to come.

How can you tell our Leather is Full Grain?

Upon close inspection, you’ll notice subtle scars, brands and marks that ensure your belt was made from full grain leather. Hides are split into numerous layers; however, each hide has only one Full Grain layer. The Full Grain layer is the very top of the hide, and is the most sought after cut because it is the strongest layer and develops a unique patina, which allows the leather to improve with age and use.

The subtle imperfections characteristic of full grain leather ensure the authenticity of your belt, and that a completely all-natural and unaltered material was used in its construction, making your belt incredibly durable and one-of-a-kind.

Why Vegetable-Tanned Leather?

We use only vegetable-tanned leather with our belts, because only vegetable-tanned leather is all-natural, is environmentally friendly, requires skilled craftsmen to produce and dye, smells like leather not chemicals and develops a unique patina that is entirely your own. All of this ensures our belts are of the highest quality and craftsmanship, and are built durable to survive and thrive in any environment.

Why NO Thread Stitching?

Both thread stitching and metal snaps offer strong holds, however we have found snaps hold up better against the friction that results from your belt being worn every day. Heat and friction cause thread to fray. Heat and friction simply polish metal; making snaps a unique, strong and attractive alternative to thread stitching.

Handcrafted & Guaranteed for Life If you are not satisfied within the first 30 days of your purchase, we will accept a return and process a refund unless otherwise specified. The sale of all limited edition products, products that have been engraved, monogrammed, embossed, personalized, etc. are final and non-refundable. We guarantee your purchase to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the life of your product. Where needed, we will repair your product. Please contact to discuss a potential repair service. Our policy cannot accommodate purchases that have been abused, misused, or altered.

    the best belt ever

    Posted by Rick on 5th Jul 2017

    Years ago I bought a belt at a flea market in Flordia. The lady told me the secret to a long lasting belt was one piece of leather. I wore that belt for over 25 years. Since then I get about two years out of a belt. I've had this belt for a while now and it still looks brand new, like I haven't worn it. This belt will probably last me for the rest of my life. My next purchase will be the dress belt just because I like it. You won't regret this belt

    working man belt and frontier wallet

    Posted by Brian on 8th Mar 2017

    I own the brown Frontier front pocket wallet and the black working man's belt. For me, I research everything before I buy. I bought both of these with intensions of them last years. I've owned the wallet for 2 years now and the belt for 4 months. I use both on a daily basis. My wallet is broken in and the patina looks great and the leather is the best period. The rivets are still perfect and there's zero stitching to worry about. If your interested in quality and would like your purchases to last years, this is it. You definitely get what you pay for here.

    Simply the Best!

    Posted by Eric on 8th Dec 2016

    Another great leather product that is high quality and looks really good. I've bought multiple items from American Benchcraft and love them all. Don't waste your money on anything else. This belt will last a lifetime. Customer service is always excellent too. I asked for a silver buckle on the brown belt which wasn't an option when ordering but they accommodated my request with no problems.

    Great Company, Great Product!

    Posted by Scott on 8th Dec 2016

    I have purchased a belt for a relative of mine, expecting it to be just an average belt, but I was surprised on how quickly I received my item. Quick turn around, top notch material. Great craftsmanship and quality. I will definitely be buying more things from them.

    Great Belt

    Posted by Bob on 20th Oct 2016

    I got my new belt about a week ago. It is fantastic. Great craftmanship and quality. I am confident that this belt is going to last for years and years. While it is called a Working Man Belt, I have worn it with jeans, dress pant and even a suit. I think it looks great in any situation. Thanks for another great product!
