An exquisitely handmade, raised English leather belt from the UK's premier Classic Leather Belt specialists. Made to order, gift boxed and optional gift message.
TBM The Belt Makers would like to present their signature piece: The British Spirit.
As seen in a certain Tatler Summer Directory, this belt sits well alongside the most exquisite jewellery and such famous brand names as Victoria Beckham, Mulberry and Aspinal of London.
In the entire TBM range, traditional materials, handtools and the skills of the old English Saddlery Trade are combined to produce truly stunning items. This belt will be hand cut, handstitched at eight stitches per inch, then carefully finished entirely by hand, by a National Award winning craftsman. Representing an undertaking of many hours' work, including roughly 1600 stitches, this belt looks amazing and is well worth the investment.
Smart, practical and for those who know their leather, simply handling this luxury item makes them look up and smile. TBM's handmade English leather belts are perfect for spoiling that special person in your life... or simply to treat yourself.
packing and size:
... your TBM 'British Spirit' handmade English leather belt will be packaged with care in a bubble lined, rigid black box; beautifully wrapped with tissue paper and enclosed with a gift card. If you would like us to add a personal message to the gift card, please enter the details in the box, above right.
Please take extra care to check the required size carefully as different trouser styles or the height on the waist where the belt is to be worn can require a different belt size. TBM belts are measured from where the leather turns over the buckle to the centre of the range of holes.
To find the right size, take a belt that the recipient likes to wear: some detective work may be required here! Measuring the leather part only, take the length from where the leather touches the buckle to the hole that is most often used. Then please select the nearest size from the options available.
If you are unsure, or need a larger or smaller size, just drop us a line and we will be pleased to help.
... Sedgwick’s First Selection, English Bridle Butt Leather in Black with red, white and blue handstitching and a 3.8cm (internal width) solid stainless steel roller buckle.
Obtained from the supplier with the Royal Warrant and used in horse harness, Sedgwick's best bridle leather is world renowned for its strength, durability, density and lustre.
The solid metal buckle has the strength to last for the lifetime of the wearer and beyond! This style bears a 'roller' which will help the strap to roll smoothly past, thus reducing the stresses on the top surface of the leather.
TBM customers appreciate the difference between belts which are 'hand-machined' and those which are 'handmade'... please do take a moment to view the 'storefront' for more information (click on the 'TBM - The Belt Makers' link, above and to the right).
We endorse the 'Slow Fashion' ethos. It won't be necessary to replace this belt each season as it will last for years under normal wear circumstances. Please see our reviews!
