1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Handmade using traditional saddlery skills, finished with a hot crease around the edge. The leather from J.&F.J. Baker
    tannery: the best quality, full grain, oak bark tanned bridle butt. This traditional method of pit tanning leather
    has almost died out but it produces a leather of unsurpassed strength and beauty.
    The natural grain is not corrected by destroying the surface of the leather and applying a uniform finish, as is the case
    with virtually all leather these days, the weave or grain gives each individual belt its own unique finish.
    This matures over the years to a rich polished oak colour, showing any natural features, such as scars or growth marks,
    which give character to the leather.
    It smells amazing too!
    Solid brass “West End” buckle cast in England. Hand stitched with Fil Au Chinois thread, the finest linen thread available.
    Edges are hand painted. Combined they make a belt that is not only beautiful but will also last a lifetime.

    - size 33-35, the length from the buckle neck to the first hole is 91 cm (35.8''), to the middle hole 96 cm (37.8'')
    - 5 holes, 2.5 cm between the holes
    - 5 mm full grain bridle leather
    - 32 mm wide (1,25")

    International shipping $30​
