Olive Multi Stripe Belt 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 MULTI STRIPE BELT: Handmade by One Magnificent Beast exclusively for Blade+Blue, this belt is made from Japanese herringbone twill & vintage French Striped Ribbon.
What a way to update a neutral!
I cannot wait to pair this belt back to the Blade+Blue shorts coming later this season. The stripes will look great popping off all of those solid shorts.
It is pretty incredible to see what happens when people combine their talents. Elsewhere on the site, you may have read that with this season's collection, I wanted to capture the spirit of a group of old paintings that I found on Cape Cod. The men at One Magnificent Beast took that inspiration and crafted it into their own beautiful works of art.

I can't say enough good things about this belt... form and function are both great. Unlike similar belts I've had in the past, this one holds the cinch nicely and doesn't loosen over time. And I'm in love with the color palette and stylishness of it as well... it pairs well with so many different pairs of pants that I own, and I've gotten a decent amount of compliments from people who have seen me wear it. Highest possible recommendation!
