The Thunders Redux is a custom, one-off belt, ready to be tailored to your waist measurements – around the brass buckle pictured. This belt will accommodate up to a 40″ measurement – using the diagram I have provided. I will tailor the belt to your size, before it is shipped to you.
Folks wonder how I come up with some of the names for my goods. Really, I have no clue, they just come to me. Part of my approach might be tipping my hat to the unnecessary seriousness and drama that enter our lives from every nook and cranny. I try to be a little silly, I suppose in reaction to it all. I will say this about the Thunders redux though – I was listening to Johnny Thunders last album, So Alone when I was making it… so maybe I channeled a little Walter Lure into its construction.
The Thunders Redux has a wild mahogany & burgundy kind of coloration. It is very cool, very different and kind of subtle in a uniquely obvious way- it also has my usual black edge and white thread..this is a heavy duty belt, made from 12oz Domestically tanned leather.!
The Thunders Redux has a cool keeper, that holds the tip of the belt (the billet) that has matching white thread and the same unique, compelling coloration.
This belt has been cut from the very best domestically made 12oz (very thick), vegetable tanned leather. The belt is lined with mission grain pigskin and stitched with domestically sourced nylon thread, giving it a resilience to stretching, sweating and wear. I use only the best dyes, hardware and threads – and a ton of information is available on my web site.
I started a new thing with the Thunders Redux, I sandwich a strip of vinyl – that doesn’t stretch – ever – and never loses its integrity – in the center of the belt, between the veg tan and the mission grain pigskin. This belt will never stretch, it will never deform! Want to bet my peers begin introducing this “new” innovation – ha! Honestly, I got the sandwich idea from the way luggage is constructed. Adding this step adds some complexity in assembling and stitching, but its worth it, this belt will be bullet proof.
I use Fiebings oil dyes for my work, so the color mellows with age and takes on a great patina. This is a good looking piece which will get you lots of comments and it is entirely hand made, by me, right here in the USA.
I have happy customers, please take a look:
