In The Loop

Handmade by Matt and Jill Meyer from recycled hybrid or road bike tires, each of these one-of-a-kind belts has a distinct tread pattern, an edgy, road-tested patina, and an actual bike chain buckle, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase "what goes around comes around." The buckle is naturally bendable, but possesses enough rigidity to keep your pants securely in place.
Handmade in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Small (waist size 27-33 inches)
Medium (waist size 31-37 inches)
Large (waist size 35-41 inches)

Matt and Jill Meyer

From waste to waist. Tired Ol' Belts is the brainchild of the hand crafter himself, Matthew. Tired of his pants falling down while he biked around the city, and even more tired of the boring old belts in his drawer, he decided to take matters into his own hands. He'd seen a few belts on the Internet that were similar, but not anything he was looking for. So, after much toiling around in the garage, and taking on his wife as his creative and business partner (also his main employee and worker bee) Tired Ol' Belts was born. All belts are unique and hand crafted. They are made from recycled (and sometimes irregular)bicycle parts, and are 100% vegan.

    Adorable and great for my geeky biker riding husband. Only issue is that it isn't the strongest to keep his pants up but he's still happy to wear it.

        This belt surprisingly works with both dress pants and jeans. It is comfortable and easy to put on/take off.

            This is a gift for a guy i've only been seeing a few months. He is an avid mountain biker and I hope he loves it! He is very fit and lean so a belt is common in his wardrobe. I hope the unique style is one he will appreciate.
