Garrison Belt Harness Tan/Brass
Do justice to your denim with our signature heavyweight of a belt. Featuring our custom built buckle weighing in at a hefty 100g and made to stand the test of time.
We make them all by hand, from heavy quality 5mm dip dyed Harness Leather, which is produced for us by one of England’s finest remaining tanneries. Each piece of leather takes 3-4 months to produce, using traditional tanning methods that date back centuries. We only use the premium ‘butt’ of the hide for its strength, and also to prevent our belts from stretching.
Quality hardware is hard to come by, so ours is custom made. The guys that make our buckles have been casting brass since 1837, so they’re pretty good at it. They also hold the Royal warrant as suppliers to household of the Queen of England, and that’s testament enough for us! Our Garrison buckle is created using traditional sand casting skills, and is made from solid brass. The rivets we use are also solid brass, designed for quality and strength.
The result of our endeavours is a rugged belt of outstanding quality that will stand the test of time. Handmade with the care and attention that mass production will never imitate.
How we make it
Each belt strip is hand cut to our standard width of 38mm (1.5’’), 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 riveted by hand.
About the leather
Constructed from 5mm finest English Harness 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.
Supplied with Barnes & Moore gift box, made from recycled materials and complimentary 5ml bottle of pure neatsfoot oil, used to condition the leather.
