blue sharkskin belt by bertrand montillet

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
i've been wanting to get a blue sharkskin belt for awhile
and spoke to a few makers
i chose to work with bertrand montillet
a former hermes craftsman.
because i like the fineness of his handstitching
and also that he uses leather interlining
instead of fibreglass like many others.

he kindly provided photos
as work progressed on my belt:

i am quite happy with the result
the workmanship is superb;
handstitching, finishing, edging
and details are all top rate

the rest of the photos can be found
in this part of his site

Me neither. what do they call that? Nor did I know that they put fiberglass between the layers of leather/outer material. Is that common?

that's a gorgeous belt Phage. What did it run you?

Great belt, don't want to know the price. Are you going to wear it with your shark skin chukka boots?
