a perfect gift
this post is long overdue. i was in a wedding last year and for a groomsman’s gift the groom got everyone a monogrammed brass belt buckle from sid mashburn. i was planning on taking pictures of mine, but it never looked as good as the one above. here’s the writeup from sid mashburn’s website:
our slide buckles are hand casted in the united states by master metal workers who make their own waxes and finish the buckles by hand. these two steps are the keys to great buckle making. the buckle is made to fit a 1” strap with holes and has a smooth surface. these should be worn with jeans to suits.
i couldn’t have said it any better. if you’re looking for a perfect gift for someone, get them a monogrammed brass belt buckle from sid mashburn, but let the recipient find the right strap. it’s half of the fun.
