Thanks, I am sure it will be a great site, like all your belts
Thank you, hope so!
We have to take an unfathomably large number of photos to do it well, so am sure they will end up here as time goes by!
New photos look really good!
A new Bakers leather for watch straps, Bakers London Tan - will be added to the new website
And some Alligator
Charlie, I have ordered several belts from you and am very pleased with them. I have often thought though that it is a shame that the stitching is on the buckle side because when the belt is on and fastened the stitching is hidden and not visible. In my view the colour of the thread adds to the looks of the belt. So wanted to ask, is it possible to order the Bakers Oak Brown Bridle Leather belt (or any of the others for that matter) with the stitching running all along the edges through the entire length of the belt? If so how much would it cost please? Please feel free to PM me if you dont want to discuss pricing here.
You can always do lined and raised...
I think for the same reason that the holes are left unblackened to show the superior construction compared to cheap mass produced belts. The belts are strong enough without the need for stitches running all the way but I agree that it'll make a nice nonfunctional accent aesthetically.
Im glad you like the belts!
Riva and Concordia are right, the L&R are aesthetically the thing you are looking for I think. We do make single layer belts that are fully stitched from time to time, perfectly possible though quite expensive as we hand stitch everything (it adds c. £150 per belt). We take the view form follows function though, and its nice to have a visual effect that also does something, in which case an L&R is your man! Also not that much more expensive as a lot of the work for an L&R is in the stitching

Another heads up, we've just listed c. 20 belts in our clearance section. They are nearly all mis sizes so technically perfect but good discounts
