Better on than off!

Finally I get to show you a new Stockwhip and my latest range of belts, and this time we’ve photographed the belts on me – they do look better on than off!

First up the 12 Strand,

Two Toned,

Kangaroo Hide Stock Whip.

A Stockwhip truly is a labour of love – there’s about 32 hours of plaiting involved in one these babies!  And that doesn’t even include the cutting time, there’s a lot of hours in shaping and tapering the strands of leather before they can become a whip.

 

 

Charlie Plait Kangaroo Hide Belt,

Hopi Peace Sign American Buckle.

This belt has about 30 strands of plaited leather.

It’s also the first time I’ve published my new plait which has subtle twin stripe pattern running through it.

Plait detail, see the subtle stripes?

  1. Hi Charlie, good to see your intricate belts modeled. I do like the subtle fashion hints and tips on what to wear with your different belts, its another advantage seeing them on you. Individuality is far preferable and attainable wearing hand crafted work, and steps up a notch when they are lovingly produced.There are few ways for the male to embellish or dress up an outfit, I think belts are one way to display their personality. Well done.They really do look better on then off! ~ Lin

    1. Thanks Lin,
      Good to know that it was worth getting out there and modelling the belts! I too think belts are a great way for guys to show off their personality. Thanks for your kind words, they are much appreciated.
      Cheers,
      Charlie.
