These English Bridle belts are truly an heirloom item. Made from either Hermann Oak or Wickett & Craig English Bridle (depending on the colour choice), finished with just a coat of neatsfoot oil to keep the leather supple and adorned with solid brass or stainless steel hardware. As most quality leather items go, this will mature with with age and simply continue to look better every day.
The belt buckle end is skived (thinned down) to keep it sitting close to your waist and all stress points are stitched AND riveted. The holes are hand punched, the stitches are hand stitched and the edges are bevelled and burnished by hand using gum tragacanth and heavy duty canvas. Not a single power tool is used.
Made to order: This item is made to order and can take up to 4-5 weeks to ship.
Colour: I apply neatsfoot oil to belts and as a result, the colour will darken slightly.
Hole Spacing: First hole is 2″ from belt tip. There are 9 holes total, at 3/4″ apart. This is a little bit closer than standard to allow for a more comfortable fit.
If you choose to have a custom size, please note it during the checkout in the ‘Order Notes’ section. (Sorry, this will be nicer later!)
