It's not huge.  I'd say about about 6 inches wide and 3 across.  I still haven't bought a belt to go with mine.

Really?  Ever been to Texas?  It may be less than 6X3, but not much. 5X3 maybe.  I can bust out the ruler when I get home.

Dude 6" is like a WWF Championship belt..... I am curious, if it really is close to 6" please do take a measurement.

6X3? It could double as a chastity belt.

OK, so I overestimated a bit. Actual size: 3.5 X 2.5

But 5 X 3 is not THAT huge for a belt buckle.

that's gotta be at least 8 X 6.

Belt buckle size is irrelevant...what I want to know is how much they payed that cowboy to wear that shirt & why his fellow cowboys didn't lynch him as soon as they saw him wearing it  ;D

That brokeback buckle is 3.5 by 2.5, I'm sure.  Clearly a midget in a hypercolor shirt.

I've been wearing mine ever since a couple days after the louisville show. I picked up a fake leather (my preference and I don't agree with the way in which we slaughter cattle) belt at Target for like 18 bucks. Buckle snaps off and MMJ snaps right back on...
I feel stronger for wearing it!

And you are, my friend...you are stronger.   That's why I've been wearing mine.  Especially to other bands' concerts.

As long as you're rep'in the Jacket!

Last I talked to LD, he was planning on going.  I think I'll try to talk the peeps that will be with me into the Wax Danny Glover Motherfucker Cover Band.  That was a great time last year.

I finally got a belt for my buckle.  I went to Leatherhead here in Louisville to get the real deal.  It was expensive but worth the money especially for the experience.  The guy commented on my MMJ belt buckle said he liked it and had a lot of respect for the band.  He showed me a picture of Two Tone Tommy getting a strap that they made for him in 03, I think.  Then I saw a picture of him with Bill Monroe.  He made Monroe's F5 mandolin case, which is now in the country music hall of fame.  Nice guy and obviously great at what he does.

I picked one up on NYE and checked at Leatherhead too.  I couldn't spend that much though.  I bought one at some bodega in the Highlands with a design on it.  I was happy with the choice.

Wanted to pass along that I finally got a belt (that fits) for my buckle.  It has been since my last post on this thread.  I got a belt and it was too big so they had to order one for me.  I am so happy to sport the buckle now.

I was thinking the same thing as I read the first page of this thread.
It's smeared with lots of good 'that's what she said' moments.
