WOMEN’S ADVENTURE BELT & BUCKLE

2018 saw a new raider’s film with a fresh new star. She went though several months of physical training to be able to do many of the stunts on her own. I wondered how they could justify her ability to be able to do so many things and handle so many weapons comfortably. Well the answer is in her buckle. “Her buckle,” you say? Yes, that buckle is a two piece semi military buckle with the word “BOYS BRIGADE” on the front with an anchor and the words “SURE & STEADFAST” on it. I researched the buckle and found that it was a late 1800’s early British group, like our Boy Scouts, focusing on the outdoors, gymnastics, archery, how to handle a knife and an axe, and survive in the woods. They had a women’s section called “Amicus” which Laura belonged and where she learned most of her skills from. I would bet that very few folks even know about the buckle and even fewer have researched it.

Chisholm’s Trail has located an early turn of the century original buckle and it is coming from England as this post is being written. We were fortunate that the buckle still has the belt with it. If you look closely in the film or on still photos of the movie you will see on her right side there is a second very small buckle called a “Belt Adjuster.” That is how you make the belt tighter or looser. We are now casting this belt and making this buckle. If you are recreating¬† the raider’s look or just want this set give us a call. Belt with edge groove, belt adjuster, and two piece Boys Brigade buckle ~ $164.95. Buckle alone~ $59.95
