Much like Cockpit USA, fellow American Made brand Sole Survivor also boasts a colorful past. Originally started in the 60s as Rainbow Leather and sold to boutiques, then festivals and craft fairs nationwide through the 70s then settling with a stand alone store, Sole Survivor in Saint Louis, Missouri in the 80s, designer Steve Rye and his wife Kay have had quite an adventure with their leather belts company! Working out of his studio and using four decades worth of accumulated old world and contemporary new world collections of leather, hard ware, machinery and tools, Rye creates belts unrivaled in durability and design - a perfect fit with Cockpit USA's outerwear collections! So we must ask, why buy foreign when you can buy American? From jeans belts to name and uniform belts, Sole Survivor has it all. Grab a belt here!
