hoof pick belt round up

the new year is a great time to pick up a new belt.  if you’re trying to lose the extra pounds you added during the holidays, buy one in the size you’d like to be in a few months.  #menswear is the ultimate motivator.  i’m a big fan of the hoof pick belt.  it’s a nice alternative to the sid mashburn joint i’ve been rocking for the past year.  i found a few of my favorites at different price ranges.  from top to bottom: apolis, hickorees, the knottery, and orvis.

you can’t go wrong with any of those.

  1. The Orvis is my favorite. Been wanting to snag one of these for the husband…may have found a winner. Thanks for posting!

  2. If you want a less expensive option (33 dollars) id go with tory leather. I got this belt about a month ago and have worn nothing but it since, needless to say I’m a big fan.

    that’s a great option. i piggy-backed paul’s post last year (https://totakethetrain.wordpress.com/2010/11/23/the-hoof-pick-belt/). i probably should have included it. thanks for pointing it out.

  3. One of my friends that I met as a camp counselor just started up his handmade belt company a few months ago and they’ve got a really sharp looking hoof pick model. Give it a gander: http://www.bluegrassbelts.com/products/hoof-pick-leather-catch

    Narragansett leathers is less expensive, handmade made to order in Maine, and possibly better than any of these.

    • I will second this notion. I have pelican bill hook belt from Narraganset, and this holiday season I commissioned a hoof-pick and rifle sling. They made them to measure, and the customer service was top shelf. Great shop, friendly people, and as good a value as there is to be had.
