And one of, if not the most important question, that men ask is....
“What type of Leather Belt should I buy?”.
This typically comes before “how to chop wood with my bare hands”..
And after, “how to sneak up on a bear”.
All extremely important questions, but today we’ll be focusing on the one about leather belts.
Sometimes trying to figure out if that belt is “real” leather or not is harder than actually sneaking up on a bear.
Let’s break it down from the beginning.
Leather is animal skin, or rawhide, if you want a word that doesn’t make you cringe, typically made from Cows.
That rawhide is then “split” into layers to produce different types of leather.
Why is it split? Because, unlike your overly sensitive friend that gets offended by your hilarious jokes, cows have really thick skin.
You could argue until the sun goes down what these layers actually are, but we break them down into 3 distinct layers with a 4th “kinda” layer.
