    Hi Guys,

    For those of you who dont follow us on Instagram or Facebook I dont think I shared this here as the forum was mid changeover at the time.

    Equus and owners of - do the bridle leather belts stretch at all? I have an Orion belt that has probably stretched 1/2" so I'm wondering if I should size down to compensate..

    I don't feel like my belts have stretched.

    I think my bridle leather belts have probably stretched a little (I have four, three of which get much more use than the fourth, and there's a slight difference). My Bakers belt on the other hand has stretched quite noticeably.

    My experience would suggest that they won't stretch at all in any meaningful way so you should just buy the size you need. My own belts haven't stretched at all and feedback suggests that's normal.

    That's really interesting, if ever you got a chance to get out a tape measure and pm numbers I'd appreciate it. Is the Bakers belt an Australian Nut one? In the while the Bakers leather is even less stretchy than the Sedgwick

    Any chance for a black or dark brown leather from Bakers?

    The Scott leather actually tends to be quite dark at times, nearly Dark Havanna so worth a thought. We dont carry a black from them though, the point of their leathers as the beauty of the skin and how it matures (IMO) and if you dye it black its just a black leather really

    Hi All,

    We've just recieved a small batch of our Damascus buckles, nice set with a good dark etch with lots of character. Of the 15 we got 5 went before they went online, the rest will sell quickly but available at the moment, The site has the buckles listed individually so you can pick the precise buckle you want
