There isn't anything much more classic than a clipper ship. Growing up on the coast I can't help but love everything nautical, and when I started making belt buckles this is the first one I kept for myself. It features a vintage image of two clipper ships on an ivory background with a faint map. Totally amazing, if I do say so myself.
About Pip Robins' buckles:
After creating the image digitally I put the image on leather, and then coat the leather so it is durable. The leather can withstand normal wear and tear, but understand that leather is soft and is not dent-proof. How do I get the image on leather? Why, magic of course! As long as you do not take sharp pointy object to the surface, or swim with your belt buckle on, you should be fine! (As an aside: I would recommend keeping sharp pointy objects away from that area of your body as a general rule.)
Each buckle measures 3" x 1-3/4". They fit on a 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) snap belt (which is not included). With very few exceptions, all belt buckles work exactly the same way- so once you have one snap belt, you can interchange belt buckles from any company!
