Master belt makers Bill Briggs and his sons John and Roland are products of fourth generation cowboys - ranch raised on good horses and grass fed beef.  They have the good fortune to have spent plenty of time in the great outdoors of the west punchin' cows, fixin' fence, hunting, trapping, and having a good time in general.  Bill has enjoyed twenty years as a Big Game Outfitter and Guide, ten years as a Montana Peace Officer and County Sheriff, and many more vocations too numerous to mention.  Above all, we understand western culture because we live it every day.  

Bill has always been fascinated with the beauty and durability of leather and providing good people with a unique, hand-tooled leather belt in the old traditional style, it gives us a great deal of satisfaction. Ask us to sign and date yours when you order. Who knows, it might be a collector's item someday.

Bill and his wife DeAnn now live with their children in the small ranching community of Dell, Montana where they both grew up on family ranches.  He enjoys working with leather and continues to be active in the great outdoors.
