An exquisitely - and genuinely - handmade English leather belt from the UK's premier Classic Leather Belt specialists. Made to order, gift boxed and optional gift message.
Smart, practical and for those who know leather, simply to handle this luxury item makes them look up and smile.
Using traditional handtools and skills of the old English Saddlery Trade, this stunning belt will be hand cut, handstitched at eight stitches per inch, then carefully finished entirely by hand, by a National Award winning craftsman.
The leather is designed for a job: thick enough to be a belt, it will stand up to the rigours of everyday use.
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 Delta' handmade English leather belt will be beautifully gift wrapped, in a bubble lined, rigid black box with turquoise 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.
The belt colour pictured is 'Light Havana'. There are several colours available and we can supply leather colour samples, please ask.
Please take extra care to check the required size carefully as 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.
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 with a 3.3cm solid brass 'Swell Front West End' buckle with a stainless steel tongue, for aesthetic appearance and a nod to our English Saddlery Heritage.
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, and when new it is fairly stiff.
As the product is worn in, in a similar way to wearing in new boots, the belt leather will react to the natural oils in the hands and to the body heat of the wearer, and gradually become more supple over time. This produces a wonderfully personal accessory, a condition which cannot be purchased in a newly made state.
Each strap is cut from a single layer of this unique 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 popular high street retailers.
The buckle has the strength to last for the lifetime of the wearer and beyond! Handcast in sand using methods hundreds of years old at our supplier's foundry in Walsall (West Midlands, England), this classic style buckle is polished to our specified high shine finish.
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!
