This is a 100% English made belt. Using Oak Bark Tanned Bridle Butt leather from J&FJ Baker of Colyton, Devon, the last remaining Oak Bark Tannery in England. The Brass West End buckle is cast in sand in Walsall. The brass saddler’s rivets and tool used to set the rivets, are also made in England.

As an alternative to the permanent saddler’s rivets, there is also the option to use Chicago Screws instead. This gives the ability to change the buckle in the future if desired.

J&FJ Baker leather goes through a long gentle process that protects the natural fibres of the hide unlike modern tanning methods. The process takes from 12 to 24 months, using the best hides and Oak bark from Wales, the Forest of Dean and Cumbria.

 

The hides are dyed by hand at the tannery in an irregular way giving a unique appearance to each belt.
The result is a beautiful piece of full grain leather, full of character and showing scars and bites from it’s previous life.

 

 

As mentioned above, the Brass buckles are also made in England, this process can be viewed here:

 

 

We are so confident in the quality and longevity of this belt, that we are happy to guarantee it for life against any type of complete failure due to manufacturing when the belt has been used normally (holding your trousers up!). It is a belt which can be eventually passed down to your children and grandchildren.

Sizing Guide

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.

 

Method 1

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.

 

Method 2

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 chris@chadwickbelts.co.uk to discuss.

 

Customisation

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.

 

Lead Time

3-5 weeks until dispatch from West Yorkshire, England.

    Excellent quality. Worthy of money. I gifted it to my husband and he provided his feedback, “This is the finest belt I have ever used.”
