David Sack, President and CEO of the company, originally formed “Streets Ahead” (a South African saying that means ‘ahead of the pack’) in 1982. Today the privately held corporation’s production is under the guidance of David and wife Michelle.
The Streets Ahead belt collection; a higher priced line, is designed and assembled by hand. David, who has been sourcing leather for the past 29 years, selects nothing but the finest Italian hides. Most hardware is Italian with a few exceptional pieces from Spain and the USA. The dedication to good design, workmanship and quality production has established Streets Ahead as the top selling American belt brand in better department stores and specialty boutiques across the country. Streets Ahead is also distributed throughout several foreign markets including Canada, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, England, Dubai, Japan and Australia.
David’s consistent dedication to the high end, hand crafted accessory, continues to draw a great deal of private label business from world- renowned designers and licensed brands. Each collection has over 150 styles per season, proudly designed, with excellent workmanship, in California.
