They stole his car. They killed his dog.
Inspired by the film series "John Wick", the all black 'Lights out' belt is one for those who dont mind getting a little dark.
As Henry Ford once famously said "You can have any colour as long as it's black".
The belt features a black PVD coating over solid brass buckle and some thick black vegetable tanned full-grain bridle leather (Thomas Ware and Sons tannery Bristol UK) in 38mm width, handmade in Sydney Australia.
PVD which stands for "Physical Vapor Deposition" is a highly accurate plating process carried out in high vacuum environments at high temperatures. It produces really durable finish to prevent scratching.
Typically, black hardware that is found in the marketplace is not PVD, and is generally considered a black spray paint causing it to chip and scratch off quickly. PVD plating is the process used to plate high end watches for a durable finish.
Please note that the chicago screws are not PVD and is more susceptible to scratching and chipping than the buckle. Over time and with consistent contact you may see the nickel plated base layer under the screws - of course they will not be seen while wearing the belt***
