For nearly half a century, Leather Man Ltd. has been producing high quality handmade belts that are as hardwearing as they are handsome. Their signature Trace Carrier belt is the first style they ever created—in fact, they built their factory back in 1967 to produce this and only this belt. The unique design is based on a large leather strap and metal buckle used to attach horses to the wagons they pulled. Known as a "trace carrier," it was incredibly sturdy and long lasting. Not unlike this belt. With a vegetable tanned leather strap and a solid brass buckle, this heirloom quality belt will keep your pants in place for decades and only get better looking with years of use. This one here was custom made especially for the gents at Sir Jack's and is crafted from premium Italian bull leather, but feel free to make your own as well.
