We're Turning 15!

by Cristina Carrera May 04, 2020 1 min read

It's hard to believe it, but we started making belts way back in 2005. When Bryan started this little belt company, he had no idea the journey it would take him on. Over the past 15 years, we have created 37 unique mechanical belt buckle designs, 2 patents, 3 Kickstarter projects, crisscrossed the country showing off Obscure Belts in 35 cities across 21 states, and racked up serious style points for countless classy people.

Times have certainly changed since Obscure began, but we are staying positive and busy. We want to do something to celebrate this big milestone, despite all our events for the year being canceled or in limbo. Throughout May we will be announcing killer deals on our website to celebrate, so check back often to see what we have going on.

We are so grateful to all our fans for supporting us since the very beginning. Thank you for reaching out to check on us over the past few weeks, sending thoughtful emails, and cheering for us on social media. You are the reason we will keep making belts, no matter what.

Stay safe, stay awesome, and don't forget it's still okay to wear pants ;)

Bryan & Cristina
