All of Chisos offerings are a demonstration of hand crafted production of superlative quality.
This belt is thick and sturdy, but still feels luxurious. I conditioned it right out of the box and the leather immediately began to show more character. It fits true to size. I have lost a lot of weight recently (currently size 32) but I purchased at my usual size (34) in case I put weight back on. I have no problems fitting into it. The 3/4 inch hole spacing keeps from stressing the holes as much. I love that the ostrich hide in this belt is in 2 segments. I have an exotic belt from Tecovas that runs small and is patched together in 5 segments which detracts from the aesthetic. I greatly prefer both of my Chisos belts.
