The Woven Buckle
Mystery, Right There On Your Pants.

 

The Cityboy doesn't want to get into the details of HOW the Woven Steel Buckle is made. Let's just say it's "Magic".
The woven steel buckle can be realized in so many different ways, it deserves it's own page. Go ahead and take a look and see for yourself a few the many possibilities available.

Create your own customized Woven Steel buckle. You can choose the finish, from forge darkened natural, to polished and ready for the board room or take a silver plated route if you like. Your buckle can be made in different sizes as well. Take a look at some of the choices that our clients have made, then write the Cityboy, so he can make a woven buckle for you. We roll our own hot steel and copper to make the buckles thinner. In most cases they're 1.75 inches tall and either 2 5/8ths or 3 inches wide, like the first two shown below.

But wait! There's more: Soon we'll be introducing PLAID woven buckles!

 

You know how some things are made to look "cool" using some cheesy trick? Not this woven beauty. It appears to have a dividing line cut into the vertical pieces. That would be cheesy. This buckle actually has ten vertical pieces. No shortcuts.

Check Mate. Copper and steel working together. Ignoring their differences to keep your pants on. That's what hope is all about. One is Magnetic, the other is used in coins before 1984, yet they find common ground.

Perhaps you like the look of one-inch wide steel?

The buckles above are made of 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch wide materials. But we're not limited to that. These are some early woven buckles made from one inch wide steel. We can also use 3/4 inch wide. Your imagination is the only limit.
