The Belt Makers' signature piece.
Originally inspired by the sense of team spirit exhibited by the players, supporters and volunteers that were 'Team GB' at the London 2012 Olympic Games; the red, white and blue stitching represents the colours on the British Union Flag, or 'Union Jack'.
Three, thinned pieces of the best Sedgwick leather are painstakingly layered together and handstitched both decoratively and functionally, over the course of a number of days.
Involving approximately 1600 individual hand stitches, this belt will certainly catch the eye. It looks amazing and is well worth the investment.

Buckle: 1 1/8 inch (29mm) wide stainless steel ‘West End Roller’

Obtained from the supplier with the Royal Warrant, the Sedgwick leather used in this belt is world renowned for its strength, durability, density and lustre. As the belt is worn in, in a similar way to wearing in good leather boots and shoes, the leather will react to the natural oils in your hands and to your body heat, becoming more supple over time. Subsequently, as it moulds beautifully to your shape and it develops its unique natural patina, it will result in a wonderfully personal leather accessory, thus making it a firm favourite for years to come.
Leather is, of course, a natural material so a little slight marking and colour variation are expected. No two belts will be the same.
Take care when wearing with light coloured items as, in the way of all coloured leather products, some colour transfer may occur especially in hot or damp conditions.
TBM belts are handmade rather than hand machined and you can find more information in our About pages.
