We have a wide range of Made to Measure Real Italian Belt Straps. Order on-line today from our collection and have it delivered to your door. All of our Leather Belt Straps are crafted by hand in the UK and come with press stud / snap on facility and no buckle.
The Leather Straps without Buckles will be finished to the highest standards and we will only require your External Waist Measurement. This being the outside measurement over any garments that you maybe wearing your new belt with.
The width of a strap is determined by the buckle in question that you are planning to wear with the strap. If you have an existing strap that you are replacing then the easiest way to find the correct measurement is to measure the width of the current strap. The alternative is to measure the buckle itself.
You will need to measure the internal width of a prong style buckle, the section the strap wraps around. If using a clasp style buckle (usually has teeth or small screws that secure the strap) measure the internal section of the strap where the belt is placed before securing with the teeth or screws.
And for western style buckles the ideal width is either 1.5 inches (38mm) to 1.75 inches (45mm). You can measure the loop on the reverse of the buckle to ascertain which would be best to use.
We can make a wide range of straps for all styles of buckles. When purchasing a belt strap as pictured on our product pages with either snaps / press studs or Chicago Screws they are made ideally for the western style buckles.
If you would like to attach a prong style buckle all you would need to order is a strap with a slot which you can chose from the dropdown on the product page.
If you have a clasp style buckle which has teeth or small screws to secure the strap then you need to purchase a strap from our square end cut straps.
Depending on the style of buckle you're securing to the strap there are a few solutions. Our range of Snap, Chicago Screw and Square Cut End Straps are similar apart from the obvious securing methods.
Snap Strap or Chicago Screws with Western Style
With a snap strap you unfasten the snaps and pass the strap through the buckle loop (Western Style) and fasten to secure.
You can use the same process with Chicago Screws apart from you will need a screwdriver to unfasten the screws before attaching the buckle.
Snap Strap or Chicago Screws with Prong Style
When securing a prong style you can use the methods outlined above for a western style buckle with one added extra process.
You will need the strap slotted at the buckle end and you will need to pass the prong through the slot before fastening with either the snaps or Chicago Screws.
Square Cut End with Clasp Style Buckle
To secure a square cut end strap to a clasp style buckle you will need to complete one of two options dependent on the buckle itself. If your clasp has teeth you will need to open the clasp and place the squared end in the opening.
Now secure the teeth over the strap. Some clasp buckles have small screws which need to be unscrewed before placing the squared end into the clasp. Then secure with the small screws.
