Hi,

I've not posted much on here but always check out the valuable resources, recommendations and enjoy reading through posts on here..

Apologies if this has been asked already but I couldn't find a link.

I'm looking for a black leather belt that is going to last me a long time and not break the bank. Based in the UK so uk makers or sellers would be great.

Can anyone recommend something that is going to be well made, go with most outfits and be a good option please without costing hundreds?

Appreciate the help in advance!

Thanks

I know that you asked for UK vendors but since no one has yet responded, I thought I'd share with you the makers I'm most recently familiar with. After doing some recent searches, there seem to be a number of custom makers doing business on Instagram as well but belts have gotten pricey. All of these were purchased in the $100-$135 range.

I have two ranger belts that were made for me by this shop over 5 years ago. High quality bridle leather and lined. He does custom work, so make an inquiry about what you're after if you don't see it offered.


Custom Leather Belts. Hand Crafted in the USA.
Recently bought a black, basket weave stamped belt from this co. 1 1/2' tapering to 3/4" harness leather strap, unlined.

I’m really happy with this all black belt by Nordic Edc. Handmade by one guy. Not in the uk but quite close by. https://www.nordicedc.com/product/classic-leather-belt-dark-edition/

RM Williams. Look no further. You can definitely get them in the UK (as we saw them on our last visit). But you will pay a premium.

Will last forever and then some.

Hey, both of my old leather belts are unraveling and getting tired. I'd appreciate recommendations for quality leather belts that double as standard daily belt and for IWB concealed carry.

Thank you in advance!

The thick belt posted above by Jonas would be excellent for concealed carry. It would hold up your IWB with no problem

I have an Amish made leather belt that I bought about 6/7 years ago. I wear it daily to work, my work involves a lot of heavy lifting and the belt has held up perfectly. Only issue is I've lost quite a bit of weight and had to buy a new one. I really love the belt, too, I got the wax brown one with western/figure 8 stitching.

I dress casually, always in denims and the belt goes great with them. The company is called Yoder Leather. They have an eBay store, that's where I bought the belt and they ship to the UK.

Their eBay store.


Hope this is helpful.

Etsy appears to be blocked at my current location so can't zone in on specific sellers, but I've had some very good stuff from them. For denims, I paid around thirty quid (each) for a couple of very good Amish-made belts four or five years ago. Those have held up well and I suspect will outlive me.

For something that will find on a pair of regular trousers rather than jeans, very pleased with this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B09MHVZFPY?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

Ive been very happy with "Heidelberg" Belts made by Langer & Messmer. They use vegetable tanned German calf skin & Italian made brass buckles. What I like about them aesthetically is the high stitch count, which makes them look more refined than many more pricey options. At about €100 a piece I feel the price is right for a German made belt of this quality.

perhaps not what you're looking for but I thought Id put it out there as another option anyway.
