… and for @fre-co - Sedgwick bridle leather in more reasonable 3~3.5mm thickness, but a more unusual combo being only a 1” wide strap, solid brass buckle and solid brass rivets. This is an all Made in England selection of materials. Sedgwick bridle is hand finished and very smooth and glossy, so I spent a bit of time breaking it then soaking in grease and tallow to make it a bit more supple and characterful (although I think it’s beautiful right out the box)

^takes patience, time and peace of mind to make them like they are. Since I started working full time I did maybe one belt, cause I didn't find the time for it...

still have to set up my workstation at the new flat.. things take time

Looking forward to mine. Thanks again @Duke Mantee - this one is for trousers. Probably won’t wear it with denim.

I think it would be fine with denim, but I agree it has the feel of a belt for trousers

A wee comparison of the last two - bearing in mind an 8~9oz leather (the thinner one in the pic) is plenty strong for a belt

I’d love to be in their payroll, but sushi is so careful with his money you’d think he was from Yorkshire rather than Kantō

… and for @LazyS - Wickett & Craig Bridle, custom made buckle and apart from said buckle is a design based on an old 1940~50s design

Thank YOU @scooby  … took a while thanks to our intrepid postal services, but I hope you get to put some wear on it as much you do your denims.

… and of course if the missus wants one who are you to deny her? :laugh2:
