With a chunky, solid cast brass buckle in an attractive horseshoe shape, Kelmscott is a truly timeless classic.
Many leather belts – even handmade ones – are stitched with a simple arrangement of stitches just behind the heel bar, a method which weakens the leather by creating perforations running across the width of the belt. The leatherworkers of old understood that it is preferable to stitch belts together with two parallel seams, and this is the way I’ve made Kelmscott. Of course this method requires more care, but Kelmscott is a belt that you’ll wear for years and years to come, so I think it’s worth the extra time.
In every way, Kelmscott is faithful to the time honoured ways of making top quality belts, with its Gothic arch-shaped end, leather keeper, and oval holes for the tongue. Standard width of 1½”.
