If you’re going to invest in a buckle, you need a proper belt strap. We have chosen Chacon as our exclusive supplier of belt straps because of their superior quality and durability. Handmade by people who understand belts and buckles, this alligator belt is actually alligator skin layered on top of calfskin for more structure. Whether you choose chocolate, cognac or black, you'll be able to see the textures and ripples in the scales. All of the leather comes from American alligators, the pinnacle of luxury leathers. And unlike most belts, Chacon’s don’t go limp or crease. They’re able to handle any buckle you put on them and still keep their beauty for years and years.
Located at the edge of the Santa Fe National Forest in Rociada, New Mexico, Chacon Belts and Buckles have the distinct advantage of being at the nexus of the many different cultures that have lived in that region. The traditions of the West, Spain, Mexico and Native Americans inform their design decisions and artistry. Since they make buckles as well, they are intimately familiar with what a good belt needs to support a buckle. By choosing only the finest leathers and making everything by hand, Chacon makes belts that stand the test of time.
