I just picked up this English bridle leather belt at Foster & Son on Jermyn Street in London. I think it is one of the best available anywhere. The leather is very thick and has that classic tan color. Here is their website http://www.wsfoster.com/shop/Small+L...k7roglafn5ha93

The belts are one length and they cut them while you wait to your measurements. Had I picked up a second one, it would have been the dark green with the bright red edge for a distinctive look.

I imagine I will have this belt for a very long time.

Very nice colour on that belt, gotta love the saddle tan. OP are you still in England? I would recommend you tracking down some English oak bark tanned leather belt too, they're the next step up from English bridle, and is a speciality seldom found outside the US...a few smaller leather craft shops carry them.

Yes, but you don't see the screw. They also offer their belts with various brass buckles and mention on their site that "variants can be made to commission for a surprisingly modest extra cost".
