Vegetable Tanned Leather Belt

18 Waits

18 WAITS is a common ground for like-minded individuals. It is a lifestyle as opposed to simply a brand or fashion label. It’s a way of life inspired by a joie de vivre and an appreciation of the finer things in life like an old pair of leather boots or a child’s painting. With an old European mentality, they take inspiration in nature and the natural flow of the earth. Founder and Creative Director, Daniel Torjman, cut his teeth first at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology and then as a production manager for Rogan where he helped open the flagship store in Tribeca. 18 Waits emphasizes quality in its materials and craftsmanship with a lineup of products made by artisans and manufacturers in Canada and the United States. He enjoys Rock&Roll music, traveling and adventures in the great outdoors with his wife Julia, son Hopper Hunter and their husky Alice Cooper.

A collaboration with Oliver Sell. Oliver makes each belt himself - by hand - in his workshop in Wisconsin, USA. He distresses the leather and buckles by hand and stitches them together for us with a custom XVIII stitch. No two belts are the same but what is the same is the care, love, and integrity put into the making of each and every one. These aren't simply tools to keep up yer trousers, these are well-crafted accessories that will grow better with age and wear. Like you. Enjoy. Made in USA.
