 Cheers, trying to find a Euro denominated seller due to the current fall viz. sterling. 
Can you let me know prices on the belts?
Anyone have any tips for a dress belt ideally in bridle leather, in a lined and raised (domed) style?
  HFW now has a plethora of names including, Minnis, JG Hardy, J Martin & Sons, Hunt & Witherbotham etc.  these lengths apparently come from the HFW Ltd. mill at Kirkheaton which shut in 2004 and was demolished in 2008: http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/kirkheaton-mill-memories-captured-during-5025516 Afaik, HFW are solely merchants now and have cloth woven for them.
For some of the real cloth hounds out there, theres a fella on ebay who claims to have sample lengths taken from the Huddersfield Fine Worsteds before its demolition, may be of interest to collectors here http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Fabric-/28162/m.html?item=371306749412&hash=item56739b5de4&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&_ssn=pinksweep
  How did you get on in the end?
 Oooohhh, gentlemen you had my curiosity, but now you have my attention!
  What colours are the houndstooths (houndsteeth?)?  
 You can try W. Bill which is owned now by Harrisons of Edinburgh, plus there must be tons of other cloth merchants and jobbers, but you'd need a local to point you to the right spots.
 Is it just me or does yer man on the right have an enormous head?
