@awk@decoratedwarvet@jmoor783@sligett@tweezak they don’t seem to offer a 45 but my current 44 seems to work fine with it and it’s a double stack. IWB or OWB and the single stack 40 is nothing to that. That’s what the notches are the for clearly.
If you IWB carry I’m sure you’ve already accounted for that anyway
@gertiestn The spellchecker on this tablet changes any damned thing it wants, but I usually catch stuff. Just the other day, so help me, it changed the spelling of the first name of a friend of mine. I guess they didn’t approve of her spelling, or of the spelling of her parents.
@gertiestn Ironic story. Yesterday I placed a curbside order at my local hardware store. Pulled up, called, gave my name. After a bit I got a call back; asking to confirm the order number as the name is different. Bring my order out…the first name (aka my first name) is listed as Jetting. My own phone autocorrected my own name. And yes, I didn’t notice it.
@dasred Aww…Love this giphy! That’s Peter Tork from the Monkees (in case you’re too young to know who he/they were, lol!). That was my favorite (re-run) TV show as a kid in the 70’s. I saw them in concert several times and Peter was a cool guy. He passed away a couple of years ago and I happened to attend the first concert Mike and Micky held after he passed, so they put on an extra special show in his honor. It was sad, but great at the same time.
Thank you for making my day with a blast from my past.
@decoratedwarvet No judgment here, lol! I met some of my best friends in college through gathering to watch them on MTV.
I was pretty much obsessed with them from the time I was about 7 (older sisters had their records) I took so much grief for being a fan in the 70’s when it was NOT cool to like them. When they reunited in the mid 80’s I caught as many local concerts as I could. I saw them in a small venue on my 18th birthday in ‘86 and Micky shook my hand while singing…it still remains one of my most treasured birthday memories, lol! (he was my favorite).
Last year, my husband surprised me with tickets to see Micky and Mike and it just so happened to fall shortly after Peter passed. I hadn’t seen them in years, but it was such a great show. They were a unique tv experiment that had some of the best hit songwriters behind them, and they will always hold a special place in my memories.
Gonna be the one that says it. Material is “leather”. Probably the “genuine leather” Spam flaked-chopped-formed leather pieces glued together which will fall apart after a year. I’d rather have a decent belt made with either Full Grain or Top Grain leather (an actual single piece of hide). They ain’t cheap but will last you for decades, such is this one on Amazon
@dmercure I was thinking the same thing!
I’m a leather crafter and full/top grain leather is not the ‘usual’ (even at nice department stores).
One of the things I have tried to educate folks on is that a ‘genuine leather’ label means it’s most likely NOT a high quality belt (or wallet) and will probably fall apart in a year or two. I didn’t know that information before I started working with leather, but now that I’m aware (and have seen the difference), I try to pass it on so others know what to look for when purchasing a leather product.
If a product is top or full grain…the label will say so. It will cost more, but it will be worth it if you take care of it.
Completely meh. Neiman Marcus may seem like top shelf, but these belts seem like genuine leather, which despite its name, is pretty shite for a belt. Save money by spending more once, instead of spending less over and over again
Arrived today, but I live close to Meh HQ so they always get here quickly. While they are Needless Markup, the price tags on them suggest they were made for the NM Outlets. The leather ones are very nice, looks well made (i.e. not Bonded Leather). The Braid one has somesort or Weird smell. For $9 each I am not complaining.
@billongings I rather like the braided one. It replaced a full leather braided one that finally (10 years?) started tearing strands from the buckle prong. For $9 and a perfect replacement, no complaints.
I got mine today. I’d ordered one 36 and two 38’s and got two 42’s and one 44. None was the textured woven one I really wanted and the mixed braid was a mono blue colored one. And I got the wrong reversible one as well. Couldn’t have been more wrong here. Hope the rest of you do better than this.
