Imperial Buckle Accurate Style.jpg Accurate Style Imperial Belt Buckle
For 501st approval:
  • An accurate style imperial buckle should be shaped with long flat sides and lightly rounded corners.
  • Correctly shaped buckles also have a slight horizontal curve.

For 501st approval:
  • Take caution when choosing/ building a proper looking Imperial Belt Buckle.
  • Notice that the corners and sides of these inaccurate style buckles are too round. Almost oval in shape.
  • This also causes the buckle to be the incorrect size.

Although these rounded buckles are readily available online, the cost of purchasing such a buckle is comparable to the cost of purchasing the metal pieces and simply constructing an accurate version. Because of the comparative cost, the rounded inaccurate buckles will not meet Imperial standards.
