Clint Orms is iconic Western style. His buckles are heirlooms to pass down for generations. “They don't make them like they used to... but we do.”

Clint Orms Engravers & Silversmiths, located in the town of Ingram, in Texas’ hill-country, is all about iconic Western style. Given their reputation for quality, it is no surprise that Clint Orms’ client list has included names such as Tommy Hilfiger, Tiger Woods, and Queen Noor of Jordan. Despite this worldly portfolio, Orms’ focus remains close to home.

Clint Orms, a Texas native, has worked with Western clothing since his childhood—his father and grandmother designed and made clothing for the renowned cowboy outlet The Cow Lot. Clint became interested in belt-buckles, desiring to create something more meaningful and long lasting. He recalls a turning point in seeing his friends inherit buckles from their grandfathers.

This idea of family inheritance became a touchstone for Clint—he wanted to not only make buckles that could be passed down through generations, but also make them according to traditional Western craftsmanship. As Clint likes to say, “They don't make them like they used to... but we do.”
