There are two basic styles that have been historically popular with working cowboys and cowgirls.  What separates the two is the width of the buckle.  

The Cowboy style is the same width  - 1 1/2" for the full length of the belt.   Ranger style buckle sets are available for cowboy style belts.

The Tapered style uses a narrower buckle while still maintaining the width of the belt. There is a taper on both ends of the belt to accommodate the lesser width of the buckle.  Ranger buckle sets work well with the tapered style and generally come in a three piece set - buckle, keeper and tip.  Ranger buckle sets available through us start at  3/4 " width and go up through 1  1/2" width.  The width, of course is the size of the opening that the belt slides through.

The Rancher style (tapered) is a full 1 3/4" width, then tapered down to 1 1/2" at the buckle.  The extra width provides two things, first; it allows for more tooling area so the patterns are usually fuller and more striking.  Second; the thickness of the leather is a bit heavier which handles heavy, everyday use better.  These work out good for bigger men, working men and hunters who carry tools and holsters on their belt fairly often.   We neck them down at the buckle so most buckles will fit them. *** Before you order this style, please check your pant loops to make sure they will handle the 1  3/4" width. 

Old West  - Ranger  style originates with the old gun fighter style of a gun belt with the main body over lapping itself at the buckle and leather strips added on the face of the overlap for the buckle attachment and adjustment.   This is the only style that we charge extra for - please add $75.00 to any order to add this style.  It is available on main body widths from 1 1/4" up to 1 3/4".  You can request rectangular or rounded billets.
