1930s Studded Jeweled Western Belt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272131471985

This vintage belt was made in the mid-late 1930s.  It is tooled with a diamond pattern with alternating diamond clusters of small studs and colored jewels.  The belt holes are grommets and there is a tooled keeper.  The original belt buckle was missing when I bought the belt and I have added a Japanese reproduction buckle with a whirling logs motif, which is close to what this would have had when new. The loop for the buckle needs to be re-stitched, at some point before I got it, the original buckle was removed and the belt was re-stitched to a smaller position, indicating multiple owners over its lifetime, as someone else has punched additional holes in the end of the belt to expand it. The belt measures 34″ to the smallest hole, 37″ to the largest grommet, and 39 to the last informal (punched later) hole.

Yellowstone Kelly pants

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401071029084

These vintage pants were worn by Clint Walker in the title role of 1959’s Yellowstone Kelly.  They bear Warner Bros tags, and his name written in the waistband, and match the style and details worn by him in this movie, as well as matching another pair worn by him in the film which sold at auction in 2012. These are a laced style of breeches, worn tucked into tall boots.  The very long inseam for the style makes perfect sense with Waker’s stature.

Waist (side to side): 16-1/2″ (doubled = 33″)
Outseam: 40″
Inseam: 28-1/2″
Rise: 11-1/2″
