Leather Dress Belt
The American Bench Craft Dress Belt is handcrafted from the same 1/8” thick leather we use with our Working Man’s Belts, but is cut to a slim 1” width, making this belt as sleek and sharp as it is durable and long lasting.
The Dress Belt is constructed with a Stainless Steel, Center Bar Buckle which stays crisply in line with the edges of the belt, eliminating the need for a belt loop, so you are left with a unique and refined appearance.
This Belt can be worn with anything from a nice pair of jeans to your sharpest suit making it one of the most versatile items in your wardrobe.
Proper Sizing: PLEASE READ BELOW
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.
Your Dress 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 NO Thread Stitching?
Both thread stitching and metal rivets offer strong holds, however we have found rivets 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 rivets a unique, strong and attractive alternative to thread stitching.
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 and beautiful patina that is entirely your own. All of this ensures our belts are of the highest quality and craftsmanship.
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 and beautiful 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 one-of-a-kind and entirely your own.

I ordered both brown and black slim leather dress belts. I have been putting off this purchase because of other belts I have seen, but after getting emails reminding me of the quality that is put into the workmanship and materials used, and watching Jason's You Tube video's of how they are made and how they use the best part of the leather, (all from USA sources) I purchased both colors. (The video's explain the different types /grades of leather and once you see their video's, you will have no doubt that this is the belt for you that will last for years. The belts were made and arrived very quickly. I will have to say this is the classiest & sleekest belt I have ever seen and owned to wear with business attire for work and I also plan to wear it with jeans and cowboy boots (it looks that classy). Yes, there are thousands of belts out there with the same width, but this belt just stands out with the highest grade of leather that they can possibly use. It just presents a statement of less is more and with this slim belt, it is much more professional looking and more stylish than wider belts. I love extremely wide belts as well so I am going to have a hard time trying to decide on which to wear with my jeans. I know I will be purchasing their wide belt as well after actually getting these belts in my hand to see and feel the quality. They do not skip on anything which is what I like and it is 100% MADE IN THE USA. I am so tired of buying cheap name brand products, especially belts that say 100% leather and they last a year or so, some maybe more, but they start to turn, bubble, crack, and look horrible. The investment I made in these belts will be worth it for years to come and if something should happen, I feel they will back their product 100%. There is no doubt i will be placing an order for their widest leather belt as well, especially for camping, everyday tasks, etc. And now of course they have dog products, and if you are a dog lover, you will end up buying multiple items as we all do for them, but of course my belts came first this time which is highly unusual. If you have any doubts how it looks with a suit, go to their website. You will see a picture of Jason wearing it with a suit and that picture I saved and it sold me. If you just take a look at their staff, they all look 100% dedicated to their job and to making the best product they can. I now blame Jason for my belt fetish and will probably end up with several more hanging in my closet over the next year. When I am eating ramen noodles because I am addicted to their products, I am blaming Jason for every scoop full of .25 cent noodles.
This is a very nice simple, yet well thought out belt. The belt is nice and thin so it looks elegant and simple. The buckle is sturdy and it's an exercise in minimal, yet well thought out design. Just a nice piece of leather that is thick, but not too thick. I think it will age beautifully and I'll probably pick it up in black as well.
I bought this for my son as a dress belt. It is simple and clean looking. The buckle is high quality as well as the leather. I was pleasantly surprised to receive leather conditioner and a sticker in the package! I would highly recommend buying a belt from them and will be back when my other sons and/or husband need a belt in the future.
Love the style and quality of the belt! Will definitely recommend ABC products to friends, family and coworkers!
Purchased this as a Christmas gift. Loved the way the initials came out. Good looking - high quality belt! Definitely recommend.
Received the belt much faster than expected. I got tired of seeing my husband wearing an expensive belt that cracks and looks old after a short time. You can tell by the workmanship that the American Bench Craft belt is made to last! Thank you.
