    Is it possible to get The Winchester Quick Release belt in a silver finish?

    Yeah, it's hard to get rich when you're making labor-intensive goods from quality materials and not overcharging; but I'd take a good trade over being rich any day.

    Thanks again for all the hard work, a Havana west end will be ordered as soon as I hit 180ish :)

    I will have to second the wallet interest and I'm guessing that I would probably be willing to pay the premium if the wallet could handle the abuse. Unfortunately my shoes eat renovateur, and my pockets eat wallets :(

    We can make the Winchester with a nickel plated brass buckle if you like? We don't offer it on the website as I don't really like plated buckles, they will eventually wear. That said its a good looking buckle in silver and I have a few to hand so not a problem if you'd like one

    I'll certainly keep the forum updated if we do anything wallet like. It's not our aim at the moment, the only reason that might change is my wallet is completely knackered and SAB have stopped making the Farmers Wallet which is what I want to replace it with so I may have to make one! There seem to be some quite nice Japaneese handmade wallets I've seen that are very heavy duty and made using nice probably English leather that might do the job for you though?

    Charlie, I've written so before, but your latest examples demand a re-run: you have the most wonderful belts I've seen. The stitching on that military belt on another level entirely. What is lacking, though, is more leather options. Croc and 'gator, kangaroo, grain, suede and so on.

    How about o-ring or d-ring belts? I reckon they wouldn't be ideal for bridle, but if you expanded into suede...

    I would be interested in Double "o" ring belts in a variety of colors and suede.

    By the way, your belts are beautiful. Delicious colors! I plan to order two very soon. One for myself and one for my son.

    I just ordered a burgundy West End to go with my incoming Alden color #8 LWBs. Quite excited for both to come in. :)

    Thanks for the comments and the orders guys, much appreciated. I take on board the comments about leather choice, we have lots of colours but not many styles or species. I'm really picky about the leather we use and it's hard to find the right quality, I guess I've stayed within my comfort zone in as much as we onl use two tanneries I know and trust, I'll look to widen the net even if it's experimentally and see what can be found.

    We do make double ring belts from time to time, so that's certain not impossible. Bridle leather is reasonable stiff for that design and it does age quite quickly, but if that's not a problem to you it's a design we can do..

    Thanks again, I really do appreciate the kind words..

    Beautiful belts. The thousand stitches reminds me on the Chinese Forbidden Stitch. Look forward to seeing more of your work.

    The belts look really great, but i'm having some trouble deciding if they're formal or casual?

    Some of them look pretty formal, but some don't. And can bridle leather be used to make formal belts? Narrangansett Leathers make theirs out of bridle leather, and they look pretty formal. I've gotten one from them, but would like to try one out from Equus.
