You can always get a belt shortened, but you cannot increase its length.

i've dropped 30 which dropped my belt size 2 holes and then next 20 will be harder but will happen. id rather get it to fit how it should later and deal with being a hole or two to far over for now.

what is the turn around these days? ~1 month?

Took the kids horse riding this week, not something I've ever been involved in before. The smell of the tack room was fantastic, pretty much what I imagine the Equus workshop smells like .. smile.gif

Tack rooms do smell amazing! I'm nearly immune to the smell of the workshop now unless Ive been away for a few days in which case the leather smell is much more apparent, or if Im opening an order of leather.

The Bakers leathers in particular have their own individual smells. The Bakers Oak Brown and London Tan for instance have subtly different smells to each other despite being twins in all but colour. The Dark Stain and the Australian Nut are different again, in particular the Australian Nut has exactly the smell that tack rooms had when I was a child, I love it. One of the great joys of great leather is it provides a genuinely multi sensorial experience, its lovely to look at and to touch but also to smell - however clever man made materials become I don't believe they'll ever achieve such an all-round balanced loveliness..
