Belts, busltes and aprons

HI All just a question

I have fully beaded a breech cloth and side aprons (which attach to a belt)

and of course my bustle attched too

Now I have seen guys wearing thick belts like weight lifters do some with with conchos.

Where do you get these?

should I wear a belt with my apron set and buslte and another one of these thicker belts over top?

thanks

looking for opinions please but also where to get the thicker belts

Yo! What you want is some strap leather - you can use leather dye to get the strap leather whatever color you want. Nocbay has a kit for a 3" belt. Otherwise you can dig for the parts on the internet (Tandy leather and many saddle shops also sell strap leather and dyes)I have one of these and ti works out pretty good. Some of my conchos eventually broke off, but most have stayed put over the past few years.

what i do is attach my front and back aprons to a backpackers nylon belt then my side tabs are attached to a beaded belt which when put on covers up the nylon belt, and my buslte is attached to a yarn belt that a friend made me.

Let's see... when fully suited up, I'm wearing 4 belts, I think? It's a bit extremem, but it works.
I have one belt that I put my leggings on - a small nylon webbing belt.
I have one belt that has aprons and side-tabs on it - it's a standard leather belt with two-prong buckle.
I have another belt to go over my shirt - plain black leather with my USMC dress blues belt buckle on it.
then a nylon webbing belt less than 1" wide for the bustle.

I put the side tabs and aprons on the same belt because adding a 5th belt in there would have been extreme and crazy! But, I do know quite a few people who attach their bustles to the concho belt, and put leggings, aprons, and side-tabs all on the same belt - that way they only have 2 belts on at any time. Some of those guys tie on their aprons and leggings, instead of using a belt, so they only have the bustle/concho belt to worry with.

Just thought I'd offer some more ideas...

Should i sew my side tabs to my leather belt but then cut the breechcloth in half and sew the front half on my belt then for the back i make it so i can run a leather thong through the back half of the breechcloth and tie it under my belt?
