Ive made two wide belts so far , love em ! A really wide belt for my Capote I wearbin the dead of winter here in Ohio , only Jan.and February... then I.made a 2" wife , 1/8" thick , belt for me blue jeans . 2" is MAX width for jeans , it'll work but its tight , 1 7/8" probably be a bit better but I just love ITV. I used an old buckle for the jeans belt and a forge buckle got at rendezvous years ago for the Capote belt . They worked out great . Good lucknifn ya aint already made em..
That’s a great picture, @Rob M. ! Looks like you stepped right out of The Revenant …except you are carrying a nicer gun!

The stitching you did on the 2.5" is better for longevity then that on the 2".
When a leather strap is stitched across it's width, it creates a fatigue point,, the leather will tear.
(a lesson learned and shared)
I'll holler at ya when I have to make another belt :)
