The belt buckle is an invention that’s old as time itself. That’s not entirely true, but according to Wikipedia they go back to at least the Iron Age. They’re old. They also work quite well in their current format, so why bother changing anything? Because they’re big, bulky and quite boring. Artist Chris Nealon had a better idea–the Blackcreek Mercantile Trap Belt. Made from a single piece of rolled steel, the buckle on the belt looks wildly different than what you’re used to but remains just as functional. Slide the long end through your pants like you’re used to, but then simply pop the end into a hole on the end. No more awkward twist and shout movements in the bathroom to get it tight. This belt is functional, good looking and best of all, operable with one-hand. We’ll leave you to figure out the implications of that last little tidbit yourself.
