Billykirk No. 117 Mechanics Belt

$165.00
SKU11453

The Mechanics Belt is a Billykirk favorite and easily garners the most interest. It can be worn casual or with a suit. Their mentor's grandfather was making a similar belt for the auto industry back in the '50s and they loved how it functioned. The flap of leather covering the buckle protects the car's paint job from being scratched. A very simple but effective design and a true piece of Americana. They made theirs slightly wider, changed the tips, and added some hand-stitched details. Also popular with guitarists who don't want to bang up the back of their guitars.

Sizing
Not all companies size their belts the same, so it's very important in order to get the proper fit that you follow these steps:

Slide a fabric tape measure through your belt loops and write down your waist circumference. We recommend keeping a finger between the tape and your body to ensure an accurate fit. Alternately, use a string to measure your waist, then place it on a ruler to find your waist circumference. Lastly, refer to our belt sizing guide located under the main product image to determine the size of your new belt.

Belt will stretch 1/2" over time

About the Brand
Founded in 1999 by brothers Chris and Kirk Bray, Billykirk is as much a concept as it is a brand. Around that time, the relatively new concept of fast-fashion was rapidly gaining steam. Billykirk was founded to counteract this trend, raising a fist toward inferior quality and mass production.

Founded in 1999 by brothers Chris and Kirk Bray, Billykirk is as much a concept as it is a brand. Around that time, the relatively new concept of fast-fashion was rapidly gaining steam. Billykirk was founded to counteract this trend, raising a fist toward inferior quality and mass production.

Always made in the USA with the finest materials, uncompromising attention to quality, and a thoughtful eye for design, Billykirk is unapologetically unique.

At Billykirk, the job isn't done when an item is simply purchased. It isn't done when a year, or two, or three pass by. These unique leather goods become a part of their owner, evolving and molding with each passing day. Every time a belt is taken on or taken off, each opening of a wallet, these small habits slowly build up character in the piece.
Here the job is never done. They strive to craft each piece with care and quality that speaks for itself. With each passing year of use, this voice should only grow louder and louder.

The proof is in the patina.
