Our most cost effective, rugged, jeans belt. The Hardcastle uses the same buffalo leather as our Pullman belt. It’s thick, strong and full of character. Each belt will be slightly different due to the “pull up” effect of the leather and the antiqued look. More importantly this belt will become more individual to you as you wear it and the patina builds up.
I have chosen to make this a more cost effective offering without reducing the quality of materials. The way I have done that is by removing the time consuming edge work. This means the edges of the belt will be square cut, with no bevelling or burnishing. The lack of this finishing is less important on a belt which is intended to be rugged and more casual and it saves you a few quid!
The buckle is stainless steel and it features matching chicago screws so it can be changed out at a later date if desired. The keeper is a neat hand stitched item (stitches hidden) in the same Buffalo leather.
Made to order in 3-5 weeks from ordering to dispatch.
We make the belt for you, so will size it for you rather than using shop style generic sizing. The Aim is to determine your “Belt size” which is a different thing to your waist or trouser size. Once we have your belt size, we make your new belt so that it will fit you on the middle hole, giving you adjustment either way if ever needed.
There are two methods available to work out your belt size. Method 1, if understood and measured correctly, is by far the most accurate.
Measure an existing belt.
We ask you to measure a current belt from the end of the leather strap where it meets/starts to fold around the buckle (not including the buckle itself) all the way down to the HOLE YOU USE MOST/FITS YOU BEST.
This is your belt size.
Please note: The belt size is usually around 2″ bigger than your jeans size.
Add 3″ to your trouser size. For example, if you wear 32″ jeans, order a 35″ belt.
If in doubt over the belt size, go bigger, rather than smaller.
This method is not as accurate as method 1. However it maybe useful if you are buying the belt as a gift and know the recipients trouser size, but cannot measure one of their existing belts.
If you are still in doubt, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
If you would like your initials adding to the back of the buckle area (not visible when worn) please state this in the comments box when ordering.
3-5 weeks until dispatch from West Yorkshire, England.
