Initials on a belt believed to be handled by the Long Island Serial Killer, released today by Suffolk County Police. The belt was found during the “initial stages” of police investigations. : TrueCrime

I’m from the south and own many monogrammed articles of clothing/accessories. When I first moved to Long Island I did not see a single monogram until I started visiting a few of the local equestrian centers where everything has the riders initials on it. Especially considering they usually only use their first and last initial.

I believe this is a male monogrammed equestrian belt. – Horse riding is extremely popular on the island.

Western wear would be more of a branding, so actually imprinted into the leather. The painted leather is more of an Hermes thing.
