Hi Guys,
Here is my Gunbelt that I have customized to make it a little more accurate and more flexible (being of too rigid origin) although being of good quality it is far from being faithful to the original (however the key piece of the Eastwood costume) the original having 30 cartridge loops (here 24 or 25 depending on the sizes) the belt is too high by 5mm and the pattern seams too large, the rest is not very suitable, I intend to have one made very precise by my shoemaker thanks to photos from the net. (on the net no sellers offer a model 100% faithful to the original)
The second photo is that of my boots with the spurs which I also modified.

The shirt is very close to the model that Eastwood wears in the High Plains Drifter.

Best

The OP certainly has the look! And the squint!

I'm not familiar with the details of the original costumes, but my only thing is that the leatherwork people are posting looks very new and pristine to me.

I had to make a belt and modify a holster for a costume, I really got into the thing of soaking the leather with rubbing alcohol, flexing it, sandpapering it, scratching it on bricks, whacking it with files, and so forth. I ended up with this look, I don't know if the originals in your films had this sort of weathering. (In the film the keeper isn't as weathered as the belt.) (The revolver is just a resin cast.)

London Jacks (On Etsy) makes one of the best out there. His oil treatment also results in a much more accurate finish to the holster. I’m getting one from him imminently but we’re trying to collaborate on a more accurate buckle. I have an Andy Anderson buckle that he might be getting castings done off of for future holsters.

Don't forget Clint wears his pants belt left handed .. Wonderful costume ..did this rough n ready rig from an old holster and did the belt with white string .. The gun is an old Japanese rep , I added a brass strap and the snake is carved leather painted silver . All stuff I had around so cost only the string .
