I’ve gotten interested in belts, especially fabric belts – there seems to be an endless variety of them in so many different variations and styles. I have made belts using D-ring clostures and belt buckles, but I am interested in exploring other types of closure. What closures to you all use? I’ve been thinking about eyelet and tie, like a corset, and hook-and-eyelet also. What I like about the D-ring is it cinches in to the actual waist size, whereas hook-and-eyelet require that one knows what the waist is (and that it doesn’t change much). Eyelet and ties are messy to do up, but are very cool to look at. What other choices do folks work with?
