Lesley Taylor has over 30 years experience of working with leather and puts that vast knowledge into each and every product she makes.

She originally studied at Cordwainers College in London and has worked for herself, lectured in Bag making, as well working with many premium brands including Mulberry handbags before moving into the Saddlery industry.

Using primarily English equestrian leathers and Scottish canvas and wools, Lesley designs and hand makes every item in her Worcestershire workshop. She has recently employed two young apprentices, Hollie and Molly, to help her and to pass on her skills in leather work and bag making.

Up to 3 initials can be embossed onto the face of the belt next to the keeper loops.

Our belts are made to order and therefore can't be returned. Part of the joy of owning a bespoke belt is that it fits you perfectly, yet men often miscalculate the size of belt they require. Measuring someone's belt size correctly is a simple three step process:

1. If the belt is for yourself, thread a regularly used leather belt through your favourite trousers/jeans and fasten as normal. Note which hole you fasten the buckle tongue through.

2. If the belt is a gift, you can usually see the right hole by the usage mark left by the buckle tongue.

3. Lay the belt flat on a table and measure from the hole discussed above to where the leather turns through the buckle. This is the size belt you need to order.
