    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

    I have one of your belts along with the conditioner and I'm curious about when you should start conditioning the belt? Right from the start or only after some wear?

    Personally I think when the belt starts to feel dry. When they are new the leather should feel well nourished and look a little waxy, at that stage I think they are best left alone. As time goes by, depending on the conditions the belt experiences, the specific bit of leather and how much wear it gets you'll find the leather starts to feel dryer to the touch and thats the point I'd apply the leather feed. If you feel the leather needs to be softer or more flexible at any point though then the feed will help at any point.

    I hope that helps at least a little!

    When will you have the Fillis 1 1/4" width back in stock as the word "temporarily" in the below statement get's to be a more permanent status....

    "The Fillis is temporarily unavailable in 1 1/4" width - why not try the 1 1/8"?"

    Yeah, thats been there for a while now hasnt it...

    I've been promised more of the 1 1/4 buckles several times now, I'll give the suppliers one more go and then I think we'll declare the 1 1/4" officially no more. I'll post here if we do get them, I dont think we will though..

    Ordered a Westfield in black in Sedgewick and a Westfield in Australian Nut in Bakers, both with polished pewter buckles in 1.25" width. Can't wait, Charlie was very helpful in answering my questions and based on what I've seen on this thread I'm sure I'll be very happy!

    No progress still, but we have lots of the 1 1/4 Brass Quick Release if you'd like one of them instead though ;)
