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
^exactly this, good sentiment..
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?
Link to the wallets? I think I would buy a bridle leather billfold if you made it.
Annoyingly I can't remember wher I saw the ones I'm thinking of. I'll put my thinking cap on and see if I can remember who made them..
Thanks, I hope you remember. And meanwhile please consider making wallets! Please?
I'd like to add in a vote for wallets!
Mark another vote for wallet interest!
Thanks guys. I'll certainly keep the votes in mind, don't hold your breaths too tightly 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.
