CANADIAN ICON: Brave Leather ClassicBelt

You may not think of a classic men’s leather belt when you think of a Canadian Design Icon but that is the point – this Classic Brave Leather belt is the epitome of the perfect leather belt. Rather than trying to re-invent the belt, Brave stuck to classic lines and good leather. And it is this adherence to simple design principles that makes it stand out.

This Canadian company first launched in 1992 with its first collection that included this men’s classic belt (aka Style No. 1). And 24 years later, this classic is still being produced and it still one of their best sellers. And for good reason, it is just made well. It is made with high quality bridle leather that is 5mm thick – ensuring a long lasting belt that just gets better with age. This is the last belt you will ever need to own (and it comes with a lifetime warranty). Retail: $85

I own one in black and in brown. And in fact, they are the only belts I own.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
