The English Leather Belt is hand made in Devon from Derbyshire leather with a solid traditional harness buckle
The English Leather Belt is made from an English cowhide, traditionally tanned in Derbyshire. They come in six colours, distinct but not garish. The hides are aniline dyed which, like stain on wood, lets the grain and all its natural imperfections show through. The enhanced natural grain adds to the character of this really interesting cowhide from the Peak District making each belt unique.
A perfect gift for anyone who appreciates quality British making. The unique patination of the hide and the extensive colour choice makes The English Leather Belt a versatile complement for jeans or smart-casual trousers.
Tanner Bates are traditional leatherworkers. Everything you see is made by us by hand in our leather workshop in Dartington, South Devon.
Available in Brown, Dark Brown, Navy, Red, Purple and Green.
The buckles are traditional harness buckles, solid and extremely hardwearing.
Width options are 1.25" and 1.5"
To fit waist sizes S = 30" - 32", M = 34" - 36", L = 38"- 40"
Can be personalised with up to 6 Uppercase letters or 4 initials with full stops. Letters are normally upright with buckle to the left as you look at it. This is usually correct for a right-hander. If you would like it otherwise please indicate - eg. "Upright letters, buckle right"
If you want more choice with up to 12 characters we will emboss on the inside of the belt for you. This way only the wearer gets to see it. The outline of the characters is not so clear when embossing onto the "flesh" side of leather so we add a contrasting pigment. This is usually white but can also be gold or silver. If you want this option indicate yes to personalisation and email a support enquiry advising the personalisation text and the placement position ie inside.
Made from 100% English Leather with a harness buckle made from either solid brass or stainless steel.
Natural leather will be kept in good supple condition and last longer if it is treated with a good quality Hide Food and dressed with a liquid wax or neutral shoe cream. Polish with a horsehair brush.
Available in 1.5 or 1.25 inch widths
How to find your size
We measure our belts by trouser size so that's one way you can order.
Alternatively, to be more accurate:
1. Measure on an existing belt the distance between the point where the leather meets the buckle to the hole you use all the time = distance 1
2. Add 2" or 5cm
3. Distance 1 plus 2" or 5cm = Trouser Size
