This Belt Was Inspired by Star Wars but Won’t Make You Look like a Star Dork

You’ll like it because it’s a scoundrel.


Admit it: in some way, shape or form, the sci-fi heroes of your youth have probably served as some form of style inspiration. I, for example, spent a good deal of high school in a corduroy blazer because I thought it would make me look/feel like the Tenth Doctor (yeah, I was that kid). But this isn’t about me. This is about you, and because there’s a good chance you wanted to emulate Han Solo at some point in your life, consider this belt.

Yes, this “Scoundrel Belt” from leather goods maker Black Acre is inspired by the one worn by Harrison Ford in the Star Wars franchise. That entails a one-and-a-half-inch-wide strip of leather with cat eye belt holes, as well as a solid brass roller buckle with two prongs. The whole product is made from black bridle leather in Fullerton, California.

Here’s the thing: though it looks like it could’ve been pilfered from the Star Wars costume department, it’s a handsome accessory that’s more of a subtle nod to the character than a dorky reproduction. In fact, only the hardest of the hardcore Star Wars fans would probably notice the resemblance with a passing glance. Of course, if you want to pair it with a deep-cut shirt, vest and knee-high boots, that’s fine too. You do you.
