Equus Leather - Bridle Leather Belts - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 7

post #91 of 1519
Thread Starter 
The Bakers project we're doing for the forum is a limited run and was all but fully subscribed so will close when the outstanding belts are made and with their owners. However I love the Bakers Australian Nut and I think we will carry both the Australian Nut and the Russet going forward - the leathers too nice not to and Bakers deserve the business - they make a fabulous product properly. The leathers don't exist on the website as yet but I'll get them up ASAP. Of course they won't come with the limited edition stuff the belts here have done, but the leather and workmanship will be just the same. Price is TBC but I'll honour the prices in the Limited Edition thread until we confirm them. We subsidised the price quite heavily, I don't know if we can keep them at that level for the long term but we'll certainly try to keep them as affordable as possible.

Hope that helps,

Charlie

God damn it Charlie. I'm trying to NOT spend more money. Now I'm going to have to get watch straps and another belt. Bastard.

Did you post a pic of a finished Russet belt yet?

Charlie,

How much is shipping for two belts to the US? Is it possible to get the Guards Belt with burgundy leather?

Everyone else,
Does anyone have photos of a green belt in an outfit? I'm intrigued by the bottlecap but now sure how wear.

Thanks.

We aim to please ;-)

Stupidly I haven't taken a single photo of a Russet belt - we have some left to make so will do so before hey are all done.

£12.75 for up to 2 belts - just below cost, basically. We're perfectly happy to make up a Guards belt in Burgundy if you'd like one, just let us know thats what you'd like when you order.

I'm afraid I haven't any photos of the Green being worn, but maybe someone else will post one.

Hi All,

Just thought I'd show you some buckles we're in the process of sourcing after a conversation with a contact on here. They're very different than our house style, but non the less very beautiful IMHO. They are handmade in a Monastery in Germany by a single craftsman so very much fit in with our philosophy. Two of the buckles are Damascus, one steel the other copper and brass, and one is forged titanium. The patterns on the buckles and the patina each one will develop will be completely unique due to the nature of the manufacturing process. They are scarily expensive to buy in but I think the craftsmanship that makes them so is very obvious. They'll retail at between £185 - £200 ex VAT per belt. As ever comments welcome!

Charlie

Hi Alex,

I'll look into it - thats a nice simple design that would lend itself well to our metals.

I received my Bakers London Tan belt and it looks great. Leather is sturdy but supple. It isn't has heavy and thick as the bridle leather belts I've received from Bullhide Belts, Sole Survivor Leather, or Leather Goods Connection. But then again it is more flexible and I still don't have any concerns about the leather not holding up.

Thank you, really glad you like it. English Bridle Leather made in England and the US version described as English Bridle Leather are actually quite different things, confusingly!

Thank you to both the above posters smile.gif

Prototype continental style Lined and Raised on the go today - we're using different lighter weight Italian leathers specifically for this new line so we can make a lighter weight belt in a different colour range and with contrasting larger stitch sizes but keeping the quality the same - all hand made and hand stitched, entirely leather construction (no fibreglass filers like a lot of people use, yuk!). Pictures to follow!
