Olive & Burgundy Stripe Belt by One Magnificent Beast
Sometimes you are just struck by an object's beauty and you can't shake it. Maybe it is a painting or a song or even a person (!) Well, that is how I felt when I came across the belts made by One Magnificent Beast.
Based just outside of Boston, One Magnificent Beast is the creative project of Charles Heightchew & Gunner Kleinschmidt, combining their love of architecture, design, and color.
Charles and Gunner started making belts for themselves when they simply couldn't find any styles they liked. They wanted something with more 'personality', so they took matters literally into their own hands. (All pieces are made by hand in their studio).
They fused their love of vintage textiles & color schemes with their technical training to create something unique & beautiful.
I could feel the soul behind the art they created. It was like Blade+Blue had a long lost brother out in Massachusetts.
I am honored to share their artistry with you.
OLIVE & BURGUNDY STRIPE BELT: Handmade by One Magnificent Beast exclusively for Blade+Blue, this belt is made from vintage French rayon 'braid'.
When I put this seasons looks together, it was so cool to see how perfectly the belts tied the looks together.
So, don't be afraid of a striped belt - live a little!

Plenty of compliments
I really enjoy this belt. After using the same standard leather black belt for 6 years, it's fun to mix it up every so often with this striped belt from Blade and Blue. Initially, I hoped the green canvas would feel a bit more luxurious. But this tiny detail aside, it looks good and appears durable, and the brass loops are beautiful. Glad I bought it.
Medium size was great for me, 32. Love the rings as a buckle.
