The Knotted Snake Tie Belt is the original of the none metal buckle belts made out of necessity during the Second World War designed by Rodger Rilleau of Provincetown. These were referred to in the 60’s as “the Snake Belt”. This design can be for a man or woman using one set of vertical slots and ties in a unique figure 8 shape. Although it may seem somewhat complicated at first, the “knot” is actually very easy to learn and becomes automatic after only a few fittings. Each Knotted Snake Belt comes with a diagram that shows how the tie goes. Jeff has been making this design since learning this design in the early 80’s from Leathersmith Bill Sharpe in Barnstable on Cape Cod.
