If you’re the kind of person who rolls out his Chewbacca impression at parties, this “Empire Strikes Back”-themed belt might be the piece de resistance to round out your existing collection of Boba Fett bobbleheads and ceramic Stormtrooper figurines.
The belts are made by Refinding, a wee company out of Kansas City that makes accessories out of all kinds of trash, er, reclaimed materials, like tire treads, tennis balls, typewriter letters, and, in this case, used trading cards. Refinders Sean and Linda use the word “trashion” quite liberally to describe their unique approach to accessorizing.
The belt is described as “Trading cards laminated, stitched to heavy nylon and then harnessed for the nefarious purpose of **holding up your pants.**” But since they sell this handmade and unique piece of fan-fashion for a mere 32 bucks, it doesn’t seem like there’s much malice to be found.
