Your Source for Custom-Made Belt Buckles in Texas
Get to Know Judge Leo Smith
My story started in 1978 as a Western wear wholesaler to dealers. I also design and manufacture saddle horse and riding equipment, as well as custom-made belt buckles in Texas.
Over the last 40-plus years, I have been a judge in far West Texas on the Mexican border in the Big Bend area’s desert mountains. In addition, I owned a manufacturing wholesale business. I have seen many crazy things and crafted hundreds of thousands of handmade belt buckles in sterling silver, gold, German silver, and jeweler’s bronze.
This website represents years of history, designs, and memory-joggers. I can recreate any event, town, or place on my custom-made belt buckles. You can change the date, figure, town, or any other detail to make it unique. In addition, you can add names, brands, or anything else to make it more special to you. Please note that I can only use an organization’s logo if I made it myself or have their permission.
All of my custom-made belt buckles are meticulously crafted from start to finish, and no two buckles will be made exactly the same. Each piece is drawn out, and all the figures and letters are cut, soldered, engraved, and polished by hand. Do not be fooled by cheaply stamped buckles cast with black paint that are not handmade or hand-engraved. Before you buy any buckle, compare pictures of my products to those of the competition.
Do not buy a supposedly handmade belt buckle, thinking you have a good deal, only to be embarrassed by cowboys who have won quality buckles. They can easily spot a cheap imitation rodeo buckle from a distance.
My custom-made belt buckles are crafted by real cowboys for real cowboys. Contact me today for more information about my products, and feel free to view my belt buckle gallery.
