Have a question?
I received my belt a few days ago (Seattle) and I've worn it every day since. The true waist sizing was spot on and this is by far the best belt I've ever owned. I'll be directing my friends and family to your online shop.
Got my belt! Apparently, I didn't know what a real leather belt was until today! Amazing quality! thank you very much!
I also got mine today (Netherlands). And it is awesome. Thanks again.
@Philippe Ribeiro - Excellent, thank you Philippe! These belts are never better than paired with denim.
@CK - Your Mountain Belt shipped out yesterday! Thanks bud!
@Orak75 - Thank you friend! Glad it made it safely to France!
I got mine today. (Paris, France)
Well done guys ! =)
Eagerly waiting for mine after all these reviews. Hoping to receive a tracking email in the coming days. Meanwhile i'll continue to live vicariously through you guys.
Chad, the little cardboard box with the mountain belt was waiting in my letterbox today. The belt is awesome! Thick as hell! I have been a denim geek for some time now but still looking for the perfect belt to pair my pants with. I have found it now!
Cheers from France.
tampines - Haha! Thank you friend. Glad to hear that you love the belt!
dbueker - Thank you!
Good Afternoon, received my belt in SG.
Very disappointed with the product. What were you people thinking?? This product is ridiculous!!!!
The center hole is perfect, leather is thick and soft and i love the weight. The color is way too beautiful and I can't bear to wear it. The worst thing happening now, i am looking your other products and trying to restraint myself from ordering them.
Received the belt on my birthday. Perfection. Almost makes me want to grow my belly so I can buy another one. :-)
@ ZOARLOB - Haha! That is beautiful. Thanks so much for the feedback!
@ Roy Wagner - Thank you Roy for writing in about it.
@ Sean OConnell - Awesome! That's what we like to hear about the Mountain Belt. Thanks so much for your backing!
Holy Crap! This belt is awesome! I've been searching for a "lifetime belt" for years. My search is over.
Got mine! It is wonderful.
Got my belt today. As I opened the box, an angelic light poured out enveloping me in wonder and amazement. Even as I type this, I am encircled by its leathery goodness. Thanks Chad and company, this is truly a wonderful piece of kit for the working gentleman's wardrobe.
Got the tracking information, excited
Email notifications will be going out as packages ship. We're entering crunch time on the fulfillment process, so all rewards will be finalized throughout this month of June as promised. Thank you for your patience as we work overtime on this project.
What tier are you currently shipping out? Thanks
@tampines Have not received mine too. Im in SG, tampines as well �
Just curious, if anyone in asia have received their one mountain belt? I am still waiting for it, SG.
James, Erik, Alfred and Andy - Thank you guys for taking the time to write in with your great feedback! I greatly appreciate your show of support and your good words. Thank you!
Dear Craft & Lore- my belt arrived and it's muy bueno. The feel of the leather is amazing for a product that is essentially brand new. Thanks so much for your communications and excellent craftsmanship.
Hi from Silver a lake in Los Angeles, CA. Just got my Craft and Lore Mountain Belt and I have to say it is pretty and awesome! Thanks Chad and thanks for sticking the fit on it for me. It is without a doubt the most comfortable belt I have ever had made of one of the sturdiest leathers that will ever hold up my pants. Nuff said.
Just received my mountain belt. I've know Chad for over 18 years and have always known him as a man who takes pride in his work. This project is no different. Chad and his team have delivered a wonderful product which will last me a life time! I look forward to future leather purchases from Craft and Lore!
Just received my mountain belt, delivered to the UK without any customs charge! The quality and service is so superb that i Immediately threw my regular 'go to' belt of ten years in the bin. This is most definitely going to be the last belt I will ever need. Many thanks for such a great product :D
@Marc Joseph - We're still finishing the ONE MOUNTAIN BELT reward tier, but we're close and we'll be building out the TWO MOUNTAIN BELT rewards next. Thanks Marc!
@James - Thank you! We're working hard to deliver on promises!
Are you doing the 2 belt shipping yet? Or still on the one belt?
Just received my shipping confirmation!!! That's an unexpected early surprise. Way to go guys :D
Good for you guys :)
Marc - As of Wednesday 5-3-17 all of our equipment and materials are in! We're posting a video update soon. You can also follow us where we post regular updates on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/craftnlore/
I had a question in the back of my mind. I joined in for the nice products. But also for you guys to acquire new equipment. Did you get new machines for your shop? Pictures please!
Hi Brad, Yes sir we're on schedule. We just received all of the hardware, but are currently waiting on the large delivery of leather from Hermann Oak. We'll be posting an update soon. Thanks!
Hi, I'm just wondering if everything is still on track timewise.
Cody - I suppose I wasn't very clear in that last update. It was mostly just an announcement that the coasters were on sale at our website, and wasn't meant to imply they were a stretch goal. So anyone who just added to their backing is still going to receive them, but there's a really really high chance the reward will end up accidentally shipping without them included. Sorry for my lack of clarity on this, and I'll end up paying any additional shipping that's required from it. I didn't collect any coaster info in the survey that went out, so it may just come down to folks messaging me about it, if they added to their backing. As far as I know, there's you and maybe one or two others.
I'll be requesting updates to survey answers in a couple of weeks, and will also be collecting any additional side-requests that occurred along the way. Thanks bud!
Was it ok to add the coasters in the comments sense they where an add on or stretch goal?
Tampines - Thank you, friend. We try to keep this moving along quickly. We're still waiting on a dozen folks to complete their survey, so we'll be sending out an update to gently nudge them along here. Thanks again!
Patrick - Thanks so much for the support and the good words! We're crunching numbers and getting leather and hardware orders prepped and can't wait to get started on building these out!
On the Bravestar Selvedge fit, it is a bit tricky since there's so many body types and fit preferences. I can only tell you that I'm a tall skinny guy and it's hard to find a good denim to look tailored, but I love the fit on their True Straights. You may have to try by ordering one of each fit, and sending back the cuts you don't care fore. Good luck!
Good Evening, you guys are fast, the ks just ended and already asking for response, can't wait for the belt to appear..
Congrats fellas. Glad to help out and add a belt and hook along with my collection of ports. Hate to sideline the comments with a non Kickstarter question - but was checking out Bravestar denim and saw in a comment below you dig em. Any experience with different fits? Again - sorry to sideline, know you guys are busy. Congrats again - pumped to get the new belt!
Cody Coleman - Hey thanks bud. Mike and I are enjoying a fine scotch, and a rare sunny warm day for this time of year.
Congrats chad and mike may you both work hard with your hands, don't forget to fit some play in.
1) Absolutely. Reach out anytime to grab a buckle only.
2) the Mountain Belt being a rugged tough work belt, the 1.75" will fit in every work pant available. I've found Carhartt to be the tightest fit, but it does fit them. I wear Levi's and Bravestar denim and the 1.75 fits perfectly fine as I'm sure it does any denim.
Two questions: 1) I ordered two belts and am probably going to get one of each color belt and one of each color buckle. I'm not sure how much I'll like the brass color. Would it be possible to order just a buckle later if I want both to have nickel buckles? 2) Do the 1.75" belts fit in most belt loops? My current belt is 1.5". I'm thinking of ordering the 2 new ones from you in 1.75" but don't want to run into an issue. Thanks, Brad
Today is the Day :) �
I just bought 2 sets, can't wait for these! Thanks guys!
zephyrsaidwhat - Since the building, packing and shipping stage is going to be hectic, it runs a high risk of being over looked so I hate to promise anything that Mike or I may accidentally miss during the process. Thanks so much for your understanding on this.
Hey Chad! Can we increase our pledges to include the coaster sets or must those be ordered through your web store?
It ok for me to wait... but I have to be the first one to get his :)
