Studs were a regular feature of medieval armour, and a belt was always considered an armour section in itself, even Biblical sources describe belts as armour. It has been theorized that the exaggerated length of medieval belts came about as armour reinforcement of the loins - after all, an extra piece of leather down there in a battle couldn't have been a bad thing. The studs on this belt are in fact coverings for 6 rivets that secure the steel rings. Six rivets! This is a really well constructed belt: you could only break this thing on purpose really. It should last a lifetime. As usual at the Medieval Shoppe we go the extra mile and give you a good look at what you're buying with a series of photographs. We understand that it's difficult to judge an item on-line, so we try to include as much visual material as possible; in this case we've included a three-step guide on how to tie this belt (see photos). It's easy when you know how. There are other ways of doing it, but this is our preferred method.
Seen similar and cheaper elsewhere? For straters, our prices are not "permanently discounted" our RRP's are real. Moreover, always check our product specifications, you will often see that we are offering bigger/weightier higher specification items, and if on occasion we do charge more, that's why. Also (last but not least) our prices include postage to both Australia and New Zealand. For a $25.00 item some local competitors may slog you with a $12.00 (or more) Australian delivery fee at checkout. We don't do that.
