To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Austin City Limits, Zilker Belts has designed and produced two custom leather belts, the Spotlight and Backstage, featuring signature black Argentine leather expertly hand-stitched in Buenos Aires with tonal grey and gold nylon thread, incorporating the iconic Austin City Limits logo.

Zilker Belts values handmade artistry and are passionate about bringing traditional Argentine fashion to our hometown of Austin and beyond. We’re thrilled to partner with a brand like Zilker Belts, music lovers through and through, whose passion for their city is reinforced by their Zilker Sessions and collaborations with other Austin brands like SXSW, Luck Reunion, and The Daytripper, to name a few.

A good rule when choosing a Zilker Belt is to go 2” larger than your pants’ waist size. So if you typically wear size 34 jeans, order a size 36 belt. For odd sizes, we suggest ordering 3” larger to be safe (ex. – choose a size 38 Zilker Belt for size 35 jeans).

Belts will also be sold at the merch table at Austin City Limits tapings and other events, and are available to purchase online HERE.

For the Trailblazer: ACL Red Paisley Bandana

Austin has many wonderful hiking trails – so you’re probably going to need to take along some bandanas for your hikes. It may be cooler now, but in the summer these things are a lifesaver – we recommend soaking it in ice water and wrapping it around your neck before you hit the greenbelt. Your dog would look very stylish sporting one of these too – so maybe grab two while you’re at it.
