A 5 min upgrade with a fine tipped permanent marker fixed them up 😊

I'd always recommend getting the stratfield holes dyed. Goes better with the modern tone of the belt. I like the contrast on some of the other belts.

If the belt is of a similar color let's say london tan then I leave it as is. For the rest I try to match the 2 color tone (belt and edge).

Pm sent. Also, are you able to do these belts with the leather cut 90 degrees so the grain runs lengthwise / parallel versus perpendicular as shown below?

PM replied to! The customerservice@ adress is definitley working - it goes to a ticketing system so nothing is lost. Did you get a bounce message or anything?

PM replied to!

No - couple of reasons for this

1) The natural strength of the leather lies longitudinally up and down the spine, so thats the only direction you should cut. This is one of the reasons shoulder leather is a bad thing!

2) with calf in particular, there nothing like enough length across a butt or side, they are about 24" wide, give or take so impossible even ignoring its bad practice

Sorry!

Thanks for the detailed explanation of the background behind your designs Charlie. I'll be ordering another Stratfield kit next month after vacation. Definitely will keep in mind the length to keep it clean smile.gif

Do - if we correspond about the length of your existing belt we can had the holes completely, really good look

Hello all,

 

what would you consider the most versatile belt for casual wear?

My belt collection is very limited (I wear mstly suspenders in m formal wear) and of poor quality and would like to add one of high quality but it would have to be very versatile from Equus.

glad to hear your thoughts.

 

thanks

Hi!

Almost undoubtedly one of the West Ends. Say an Australian Nut (Darkish Brown) West End with a Stainless Steel buckle - quite smart but not overtly formal, will last for a very long time and fulfill the only belt role very well

thanks Charlie, that was very fast. I will measure my belts in order to customize it.

May I ask whats normally the turnaround time for an order until it gets delivered?

 

PS: brass or stainless steel? :)
