Thanks guys, much appreciated :-)
Thanks! Sleep deprivation will rule in your household Im sure too then!
I was going to ask @Equus Leather this, but thought I'd get opinions from everyone here.
I'm looking to customize a couple of casual belts for denim and other casual pants. The Bakers harness belts like the Shackleton and Scott are no-brainers.
**I'm wondering if any of you prefer lined & raised belts for denim. And is it possible to get these made with the Bakers harness leathers instead of the Sedgwick bridle? Does anyone have a photo of a Bakers harness lined & raised? If you considered lined & raised vs just the thick harness--any reason you chose for or against lined & raised?
I do love the look of the oak bark tanned leather for denim. More wabi sabi. And I do love a nice, european-style slanted saddle stitch with contrast. Pairing the two seem like they might work well for casual wear, unless the leather or buckle are more formal looking.
I'd be wearing an lot of stitch down and GYW boots with to pair with these belts, which would also have contrast stitching on the soles.
I'd probably go with brass west end buckles in the Light Havanna & Dark stain colors. 1 3/8" if possible in lined & raised. Of course, I have to consider a damascus buckle as well.
Thanks for the reply, Charlie. Email sent.
