Shane On You

New Belt Line Worth Getting Whipped By

We at UD are always on the lookout for new (and preferably stylish) ways to draw attention to our better assets. Which is why we're all about Brooks "Shane" Salzwedel's line of leather-strapped belt buckles. The epoxy-resin and hand-screened layered designs feature drawings of cityscapes, highways, forests and other backgrounds sure to draw members of the opposite sex in for a closer look (yes, my dear, that is a snake, though I am also happy to see you).

The one-time handyman created the idea for his first-ever collection while experimenting with materials on the job, and the belts have already become a hit with hipsters and hipster-inspired boutiques on both coasts. Not a big fan of birds on branches? The designs are varied and you can also ask Brooks to customize a belt of your own choosing. Just try to stay away from downward pointing arrows.
