We have recently been lucky enough to source a small supply of the lovely Rusticalf leather from Tannerie D'Annonay in France. The beautiful grains, rich colours and character of the leather make this one of the best calf leathers in the world. The supply of this leather is very limited, we have one skin of each shade so we offer these belts as a Special Edition and colours will be removed as they sell out.

This belt is a Lined and Raised made using the same methods we have developed for our original Bridle Leather Lined and Raised. Each belt is entirely hand stitched and, depending on length, has around 1000 stitches taking around a day of work from start to finish. The wide range of leather and thread colours mean you can create a genuinely unique belt that reflects your personality and personal style, from deep formal tones to bright, rich leathers and high contrast stitching.

Because of the lighter weight calf leathers used for this belt the overall thickness is great for suits and lighter clothing. The belts are lightly padded in the centre to create the familar beautiful raised profile our L&R belts all share and are around 3.5 to 3.75mm in the centre - the "Goldilocks" thickness isnt too thick and works well with formal trouser belt loops but also isn't so thin as to feel insubstantial. We line the belts with Natural Vegetable Tanned Calf for a pleasing contrast and to make sure the lining lasts as well and ages as pleasingly as the outer leather. The central internal layer is also leather (like all our belts) to make sure the belt ages well.

These belts all feature our captive running keeper system so you can have all the benefits of a running keeper to position where you need it (typically after your first belt loop so the tail is completely still) with no risk of losing it. The retaining strip behind the belt is made as carefully as the rest of the belt to make sure its unobtrusive, comfortable and strong but without undue bulk.
