... our manufacturing
Using traditional handtools and hand skills of the English Saddlery Trade, this piece will be hand cut, handstitched at eight stitches per inch then finished entirely by hand, in the Devon workshops of National Award winning craftsmen.
The leather is designed for a job. It is thick enough to be a belt, while it handles as though thinner than it really is.
Over time, the luxurious suppleness of this world-renowned leather will enable the belt to naturally - and beautifully - mold to the shape of the wearer. A TBM belt will look after the owner as well as the owner will look after it and will become a firm favourite for years to come.
TBM's handmade English leather belts are perfect for spoiling that special person in your life... or simply to treat yourself.
Your 'TBM Alpha' handmade English black leather belt will be beautifully packed in a bubble lined, sturdy gift box with tissue paper and a gift card. If you would like us to add a personal message to the gift card, please enter the details in the 'personal message' box.
Please take extra care to check the required size carefully. Different trouser styles 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 select the nearest size from the wide range of options available.
You can also try just adding 5cm (2 inches) to the recipient's normal trouser size but please note that this does not work for everyone.
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 with a 2.9cm solid stainless steel roller buckle.
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, and when new, likes to be broken in.
Each strap is cut from a single layer of leather... it cannot delaminate, needs no stitching around the edges to hold it together and will not split at the holes in the same way as those available from big brand retailers.
The solid stainless steel buckle has the strength to last for the lifetime of the wearer and beyond! This style bears a 'roller' which helps the strap roll smoothly over the buckle, thus reducing stresses on the leather's top surface.
Further leather and care information is included in your box.
the TBM difference...
TBM customers appreciate the difference between 'hand-machined' belts and those which are 'handmade'... please do view the 'storefront' for more information (click on the 'TBM - The Belt Makers' link, under the product title).
Slow Fashion: keep this belt beyond the end of the season as it will last for years under normal wear circumstances. Please see our reviews!
