Equus Leather - Bridle Leather Belts - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 152

post #2266 of 2743
Hey Charlie, I got the belts I ordered and I have a question. The prongs are bent and don't rest on the buckle properly. Will this have any effect on the longevity of the belt or is this a nonissue? Aside from this potential issue, the other belts I ordered are all of excellent quality and I'm very happy with the order.

Regarding the quick release buckle on the winchester belt- I'm sure back when firefighters used it 100 years ago it made a difference, but when using a belt around the waist does are you actually able to undo it more quickly? How much time are we talking? I'm guessing this is more of a novelty and conversation piece nowadays?

 

And once it is undone, does it take longer to fasten it when putting it back on?

It is definitley quicker to undo, but really if your busy enough to worry about the time it takes to undo your belt in the evening you're a very busy man indeed! It'll knock a few seconds of your undressing routine maybe. In the context of their original purpose that matters, for a belt they make for a nice interesting design and an interesting insight into the world before plastic quick release clips. They maybe take as much longer to do up as they saved you to undo, a zero sum game but balanced towards time saved when it mattered to its inventor! Enjoy them as interesting and pretty things rather than a revolution in fast dressing :-)

Ive been contemplating the Oak brown for a while, as it looks like a lovely mid brown color. I realize its a little thicker leather, @MrTonyPelican does it feel like a substantial belt? What width do you have there?

Im actually thinking of something less substantial, less casual, but having trouble visualizing widths and buckles. Perhaps its the wrong leather for that style.

The picture does not truly represent the color of this belt as it changes from light to dark through the length of the belt. It definitely has character, and I am very happy with it.

Best regards,

Thanks Mr Pelican. You obviously thought it was 'formal' enough to wear with a suit. Thats good to know.

@Equus Leather are there any other comparable colours in the Sedgwick leathers?

No problem Oz, good luck on the hunt. I am sure you will be pleased with what you aquire. I was also looking at the Oxford tan or the hazel.

Best regards,

I wear mine with a suit, although it wouldn't be my first choice, I wouldn't have any issue with it either in the US.

Not directly comprable, but similar. The Oxford Tan I think may shortly be dropped as the tannery arent mixing the colour any more, we'll replace it with a slightly darker mid brown I think. The Hazel is a similar character to the Oak Brown - very aniline and pretty, but it does have a lot more orange that the OB

All of the Bakers leathers are pretty unique, its lovely stuff

Thanks Charlie. Is there a rough estimate of when the new mid brown would come in? Do you think that would be similar thickness?
