    Really glad you like the belt and I'm really glad you enjoyed the process and the experience. I try hard to make the L&Rs in particular a bespoke experience rather than just a belt, so pleased we succeeded!

    The waxy coating is the stuff that makes bridle leather bridle leather, its called tanners grease. It'll buff off with a soft cloth or wear off over time, we tend to leave it as it protects the surface in transit and in use and we like to try and present the belts in absoloutly pristine order with the leather as it left the tannery if possible.

    I made a really striking Mediumweight with a Red face and keepers, black lining and yellow stitching yesterday - very striking indeed and a good illustration of how customisable the design is, but stupidly I didnt take any pictures..

    Hello all at SF!

    Just a quick note from me - I've just read the lovely post about opening the L&R belt and the sense of occasion one experienced and this really pleased me!

    Thanks for all the kind words. I know its normally Charlie that posts about all the technical side of the belts, but from an admin and packaging pov, it's lovely to see people enjoy the experience of buying from us, so thank you all very much.

    Dawn

    I made a Scott belt on Friday that will be worn on a walk (not by me) from Resolute Bay to (we hope) the North Pole - rather cool so I thought I'd share :)

    Dear Charlie,

    Thanks very much for taking the trouble to comply with my request to post the photographs (a friend shot for me and sent me in an email attachment which I forwarded to you) because I couldn't do it - (I just don't have the savvy for this Internet complexity and I ain't got my own laptop). I did not reflect that photographs of wearing the belt ("action photograph") would be unusual, and now I notice that most photographs here are of only the belts themselves. (For all you readers:I know it is a paradox that I send Charlie an action photograph but he must take the action to put it here, and I don't know how Charlie could take more photos of wearers unless they visit him or he visits them, or maybe through internet camera?)

    For the possible benefit of readers here I repeat what I wrote you: I am very happy about your recommendation instead of the classical heavyweight I order the middleweight - it's just what I want and perfect. Your estimation of the belt length is also perfect. You also put the belt holes in the belt exactly so that the middle hole is the one I need. Your further recommendation of yellow as thread colour fits perfectly as well. There's nothing at all to complain about. I wasn't impatient about the arrival of the belt and the belt didn't arrive late at all - I imagined you would need longer. So for at least once in my life I ordered something and didn't need to suffer and make a mistake to learn what I shouldn't do. On the other hand, my infinite inquiries probably was a test of nerves for you.

    So I dare say I am very HAPPY about this wonderful belt!

    Thanks very much,
    Your most satisfied customer


    PS: Dawn was very kind to me when I phoned. Charlie is fortunate to have such a nice colleague.

    Hi Ivory,

    Generally just a soft cloth when the belts are new/newish will have them looking as good as new. As the belts get older a leather feed/conditioner will help them age well, we sell one specifically designed for the leather but there are several good ones around that will do the job.

    I hope that help,

    Charlie
