We just took delivery of a new batch of Archival Clothing webbing belts. Our belts are sewn locally for us by the same great folks who produce our bags. This is a simple ring belt, made from a length of 1 inch wide, mil spec webbing with two solid brass rings and a new, Horween leather tip. For the new production run, we’ve added XS and XL sizes.
We love our British military-spec webbing, especially since it took us so long to find an example that was up to our standards. The dense, stout weave becomes more supple with use, without ever becoming flimsy. This is a simple ring belt, with nothing more than a length of webbing with two solid brass rings. Our signature red bar-tack keeps things together. Ideal for summer use with denim, chinos, and shorts of all stripes. Made by the same folks who sew our bags in Springfield, OR.

MEDIUM – fits waists from 32-34

David Morgan is one of the few remaining mail order companies that still sends out a print catalog. As far as I can tell, the catalog has not changed in appearance since I first started receiving copies in the early 90s (requested during my first search for a filson wool cruiser). While a David Morgan 1999 catalog may look like a 2009 catalog (same typeface, same layout, same grayscale photography, same brown cover) much has changed in the last ten years. The Bosca coin purse is now made in China and costs 43.00 (it used to be a 24.00 staple). Nova Scotia textiles and Alpendale are now out of business. Filson no longer offers Oregon-made wool whipcord or moleskin trousers and some of the original Filson styles have disappeared.
Nevertheless, the catalog continues to offer many worthy archival garments and accessories.
