The Stratfield Rusticalf Lined and Raised Belt features combines the design of our Bridle Leather Lined and Raised with lighter weight materials that are perfect for formal wear. We have been able to source a small quantity of beautiful grained Rusticalf leather from Tannerie D'Annonay, probably the best tannery of this style of leather in the world. The combination of great colours and grains makes for a beautiful belt that is subtle but very special. As with everything we make these belts are entirely handstitched and the array of thread colours allow you to design a belt with either matching, subtley contrasting or bright contrast colours, to suit your mood and wardrobe!
The Stratfield Belt Kits features a beautiful solid brass buckle available in a variety of finishes, made for us by the best buckle maker in Paris. The design means the strap is detachable from the buckle allowing seamless interchange for a different colour strap or buckle, both of which are also available individually. For those who need a variety of belts in different leather and metal colours to match a shoe or clothing collection this is an excellent way of building a belt collection with many combinations much more cost effectively than by being each belt individually. As well as the smooth lines and interchangeability of the design the buckle is of exemplary finish and quality, form as well as function. In addition to solid brass we're able to offer this buckle with a Palladium, Ruthenium or 23t Gold finish for a great variety of finishes and colours.
In use, the Stratfield sits very close to the body. It's a neat, elegant buckle suitable for formal or smart casual wear. The curve of the buckle follow the curve of the waist and the toungless design means the buckle sits perfectly flush with the leather makes this our sleekest, most figure hugging design yet. The tail of the belt sits behind the buckle and strap preserving the crisp lines and keeps excess leather tucked tidily out of sight.
Each belt is made to measure for you and will come with 5 holes as standard, giving you 4 inches of adjustment, dependent on your choice of hole spacing.
