I just finished a costume belt for Luke from ROTJ. I used reference pics from museum replicas. I cant remember where I read it but I had read that the buckle was originally modified from a buckle blank from Tandy leather. So thats what I used. I made the buckle solid black so that someone who wanted to could distress it themselves or leave it stock. I made my own pouch and saber clip. I began by hand dying the belt dark brown and then put a black finish over that so the belt would more closely resmeble the belt from museum replicas.

Any thoughts?

For the Saber clip, I took a piece of 18 gauge stainless, cut it to about 5 inches and used a pair of needle nose to put the right bend in it. Then used a bench grinder to taper the sides. I am not sure I understand your second question. Do you want to know the measurements on the spacing between the buckle and the saber clip and then between the saber clip and the d-ring?

I placed them each about 2 inches from the other. It was just a S.W.A.G. based on looking at the photos and how close together they "seem" to be.
