Details

The beautiful grains, rich colours and character of these leathers, along with our hand crafting make what we intend to be one of the best calf belts in the world. We are fortunate to work with two of the finest calf tanneries in France and as such we have access to the very finest leather, not only for the face but also the lining, available anywhere in the world. Our craftsmen ensure every detail is considered and that we produce a belt that justifies the wonderful leather we are lucky enough to work with.

This belt is a Lined and Raised made using the methods we have developed for our original Bridle Leather Lined and Raised with adaptations to make sure we fully utilise the characteristics of the softer, thinner calf leather. 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 3.75mm in the centre - the "Goldilocks" thickness that isnt too thick and works well with formal trouser belt loops but also feels reassuring and extremely comfortable to wear. We line the belts with an exceptionally high quality calf in our signature Fawn that is specially prepared to ensure long life and great agings characteristics, as well as making sure the leather will not mark trousers or leave any residue. The central internal layer is also leather (like all our belts) to make sure the belt ages well. Lesser belts invariably use cardboard or other man made fibres in the centre of the belt which quickly fail - all our belts and watch straps are 100% leather inside and outside.

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.
