Leather Belt with Brass Buckle 32mm (1 1/4") Brown
The Cavalier Belt
I created the Cavalier belt in response to customers who prefer a narrow profile belt. It’s designed to complement a wide range of trousers and chino’s and is simply a scaled down version of the popular Drover belt.
The Cavalier belt features a hand cast buckle, made exclusively by a traditional local foundry. I use finest English vegetable tanned bridle leather of the highest quality for the strap, and each belt is made by hand at my workshop in Wales.
How I make it
Each belt strip is hand cut to the standard width of 32mm (1 1/4’’), trimmed to size and the tips hand shaped. The edges are bevelled and hand ‘burnished’, which seals the fibres of the leather, not only for aesthetics, but to help prevent the edges absorbing moisture. The strap is then cut to receive the buckle, which is fastened by hand using solid brass screw fittings. Finally, the belt holes are hand punched and, finally, the leather is hand polished.
About the Leather
Constructed from 9-10oz finest English Bridle leather. Full grain, vegetable tanned using a time consuming, environmentally friendly process which utilises natural materials, including tree bark. This method achieves a supple, natural finish that will develop a beautiful patina over time. Standard width of the Cavalier belt is 32mm (1 1/4”).English solid brass buckle with a natural polished finish. Hand cast using traditional methods and made exclusively for me. Fitted with solid brass rivets and solid brass keeper.
