Have you been angered by sub-standard western belts, that fall apart and are incapable of holding your trousers? Have the capitalists attempted to pass off a luggage restraint as clothing?
Do not make surrender to them!!
This guide will be demonstrate of how to combine classic belt buckle previously owned by glorious red army, and ordinary fabric belt into inexpensive, quirky hybrid.
I make this after capitalist trouser-restraint's buckle simply fall off. Luckily, I was cleaning Lenin portrait and not in public place, or would have been embarrassing for all involved.
I decide to replace useless belt from Primark with Soviet Army Belt from the eBay. But disaster strike! Army uniform belt is intended for use with army uniform, and is too wide for regular civilian trousers. I therefore use true communist resourcefulness to combine fabric belt with soviet buckle.
This is being my first Instructable, I share this knowledge in true communist spirit!
Step 1: Further Informations
I didn't want to cut the leather, or modify the belt in any non-reversible way, and I achieved that goal.
The design of the belt buckle I'm using barely changed since the 1940s, so these instructions should have good range.
I purchased the belt complete off eBay for 8.50 GBP ($12.44) total including delivery; however you will only need the buckle for this project, which may be cheaper. Usually the buckles are only sold on their own if they're so old the leather has rotted off or been otherwise destroyed, perhaps owning not only a Soviet belt but a WWII soviet belt is even better?
They're mostly available in silver, painted green or brass. Or "dirt" if you buy a WWII one.
The images for this step show the belt as I received it, except for the one on the union flag which is the donor belt, which came free with some black jeans from Primark which were about 4.50 GBP.
