We’ve covered a wide spectrum of items from boots to bags and everything in-between. However, the item that most people overlook is a quality belt. A belt is something that you wear on a daily basis and can be as stylish as it is functional. It’s no longer just something used to keep your pants around your waist. It’s time to switch it up and let the belt make a statement. That’s exactly the case for the Odin Belt by Ragnar. This English brand knows a thing or two about quality goods that’ll go the distance.

Construction

The belt begins with Oak Bark Leather from J. & F.J Baker & Co., a British tannery that has been supplying the most exclusive shoemakers, saddlers, interiors and leather workers in the world for over 150 years. To say they know a thing or two about high-quality leather would be an understatement with years and years of experience. They use only the best local hides for Oak Bark tannage, which is a long and gentle process that protects the natural fibers of the hide and it takes 14 months to produce each piece of leather. Aside from Oak Bark Leather, you’ll also find a solid antiqued brass buckle, solid brass keeper, beeswax burnished edges and a decorative hand stitch clasp.
