TBM stunning Conker brown 1¼ inch wide First Grade English bridle butt leather belt

Handmade Real First Grade English Leather belt

Entirely made by hand in the workshop of a National award-winning craftsman...

The Alpha belt has been designed with business wear in mind. Where we normally take the square angles off the front and back edges of the leather for comfort, a deeper cut angle has been taken off the back of this style. We call this the ‘dress’ edge or ‘formal’ style. The result is a sturdy leather belt with all the strength of its TBM contemporaries, while in handling, it has lighter-weight feel and is particularly suited to most suit trousers.
