Greetings to my fellow denim & leather nerds! I'm opening an expression of interest list for a new group buy belt project! This time it's with a workshop in England called Equus Leather, run by cCharlie who is trained in classic english saddlery and who has been making leather crafts professionally since 1995. See the affiliate thread here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/260644/equus-leather-bridle-leather-belts-official-affiliate-thread The belt this time around will have a little bit of a military twist to it, being a 1.5" wide hand-cut strap, fitted with a solid-brass custom double-pronged garrison-style buckle, ending with a slant edge tip. The buckle fold will be held together by hand-sewn saddle stitching in thick, waxed irish linen threads. the edges left raw after a clean cut (i mean, really clean.) The leather will come from Baker's tannery - their English oak-bark tanned cattlehide leather which is referred to as the russet bridle butt. The leather will be 6 mm thick (or a little more), have an incredible grain growth, and is "natural" coloured for optimal evolution with time! This is one of the very best cattlehides available in the world, undergoing a long, slow but gentle oak-bark tanning process (1 year and 1 day sitting in up to 72 of Baker's bark tanning pits) and then finished off by hand. Very few tanneries in the world produce leather in this old-fashioned way - it is how vegetable tanned leather used to be made. Anyway, please do let me know if you're interested - send me a PM or e-mail me directly. I'm taking names for the newsletter list until New Year.
