  • How do I provide the correct measurement for my new leather belt?

This is a question we hear every week and we have provided a detailed process on our page How to Measure for a Belt. In short the best way to obtain the measurement we need is to measure an existing belt from the end of the pin / prong on the buckle to the hole you use the most. If you need any further help please feel free to email us.

  • What quality leather do you use in the manufacturing process?

We source only the finest full grain leather for the manufacturing of our handmade to measure leather belts. Full Grain Leather is the best quality leather you can purchase. The different grades are as follows from the best down, Full Grain, Top Grain, Genuine Leather, Spilt or Bonded Leather.

  • What width belt do I require?

We suggest you measure the loops on your trousers, pants or jeans and buy the width the that fills the loops fully. The loops on any garment always look better if they don't bag over and are filled completely. Please find our page on Wide Leather Belts for further information.
