wow. anyway I can help?

I don't think so at this stage but thank you. Snaps are a much more US than European thing so I'll have to see if I can find some US hardware maybe.

I think I ordered the same thing. Can't wait.

Charlie - how are those pics of the Russett belt coming along?

I've failed to take any so far, I will do!

Nearly all the Russet (in fact all the colours) are done now, just one or two buckles still to arrive delaying the last few. Theresa another batch leaving us today.

I'm absolutely jealous. Mine was sent out 4 weeks ago, but the bright lads at the Royal Post [yes, Royal Post. Equus Leather wrote the right address down and are blameless] sent it to the wrong country... frown.gif

More waiting for me to even know if there's a chance I can get that package on the right track I guess. Still. good things come to those who wait and all that.

Uber,

If they persist in their idiocy we will make you another, its annoying its gone astray but we'l sort it from this end for you if needs be, no need to worry about not getting one.

No better example of great customer service exists, here.

I've read up on your Post's policies though, and it *seems* that there's some time yet to wait. Apparently it may either go straight to my address, or it may go to yours as undelivered.

Either way, the site says 25 working days - 5 weeks. It's a long and tough wait, but I'll not have you penalized for something that clearly wasn't your fault. That said... Getting nothing for my payment is also unacceptable, so I'm hoping the post gets this SNAFU sorted out for both our sakes.

Hi Uber,

Either way you'll get a belt, no worries there. Lets keep in touch and fingers crossed it'll turn up, but we'll sort it for you if not.

The Limited Edition Baker belts I ordered arrived yesterday! The belts are fantastic. Here are some photos (apologies for the bad lighting and grainy images). I got one of each of the three limited edition Baker belts. Notice there is a fourth belt in the mix. Charlie agreed to make a Cheviot belt using an end of Baker Australian Nut leather. Not a limited edition, but likely 1 of 1. The last photo shows that I have built up a bit of an Equus belt collection that varies leather color, buckle type, and width. I have to say that each purchase has reminded me how rare it is to get such a fantastic quality product and such accommodating and excellent service! Amazingly Charlie keeps coming up with new ways to keep me coming back for more...

Apologies at the outset for defiling this stunning visual romp with my pedestrian text.

 

I'm just in the market for a belt to accompany my AE Chestnut Strands. Would anyone mind commenting (Charlie inclusive) on how any of the Equus gems in Hazel will pair with the aforementioned ?

Hi Astro,

Drop me a PM and I'll put a sample in the post for you if youl like? Can't beat seeing the colour first hand if you want them to match..
