Have a question?
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 :)
Marc - We're so close now! The real work is about to begin for us :)
I want my belt geeee this wait is killing me :)
NEW REWARD OPTION: We're offering the Brass Key Hook in Matte Nickle to match the buckle for those who want that color option. Photos coming soon!
Andrew, the buckles are both solid brass, but one has an antique finish on the brass and one has a matte nickle coating on it.
The nickel is a coating that will give tit the silver shinny look. Brass will develop a nice patina, if you don't follow them on Instagram or Facebook you should give it a try lots of nice pics from them an customers like myself. The campaign pics are good to.
What are the major differences between the brass and the nickel as a belt buckle? Is one more durable or better patina?
im sure it would bring me to tear.
Cody Coleman - Since meeting delivery times is super important to me, I didn't want to add anything extra to the process on the belts. So they won't have any special branding. But I can break out the sharpie marker and write a haiku on the back of yours for you :D
Will you all be stamping anything extra on these to commemorate the Kickstarter side of it all. EG... a backer number or a special KS ish brand or mark.
Aytan, Yes most true full grain leather belts will leave markings. You can see a photo of the Patina on a well worn belt in the campaign section. Thank you.
Hey guys looks like a great product. On all my other leather belts the buckle leaves a mark on frequent used holes. Will the higher gauge of this belt reduce that affect? Will the buckle leave marks on the leather? Thanks
Michael Olivier - That's excellent, thank you Michael. Glad you're still loving the Port Wallet.
I have had a Port Wallet since 2014 and can't see myself ever using another wallet. I have followed you through the years and was glad when I found out that you were making another campaign. I would wish you good luck on the campaign but it looks like you are killing it already. I hope to do business with you again in the future.
@Ahmad Hokan - We appreciate your backing us twice. Cheers!
Great campaign. I backed your port wallet and i appreciate the quality of your prodcuts. Looking forward for this one, all the best.
@Ryan Stephenson - Thanks Ryan. I still owe you a response to your email. Things are hectic at the moment, so feel free to follow up in the next couple weeks.
Very excited for my belt; more excited to support you guys. Keep it up, gentlemen.
@Cody Coleman and - We're so grateful for the awesome customers and friends that we have in all of you.
@zephyrsaidwhat - Dang it! #4 is still a high place of honor!
I would've got the first spot, but someone was in my office for a chat when I saw the notification. I'll take #4 though :-D
BTW that clip was sweet.
Glad to be on board gentlemen. Excellent service and quality products is what I've come to see in Craft and Lore. I'm more than just a Backer or a Customer I'm a Collector and I love a good deal like the one being offered here. Thanks for making my collection bigger and better.
@zephyrsaidwhat - Hey thanks Beth! You're so fast to back!
Weeeeeeee! These look amazing, Chad!
