With its sleek style, textured surface and subtle buckle, the Derby Strap is the perfect allround belt.
We designed the Derby Strap with the goal of achieving the same versatility of a classic derby shoe, which by the way is a perfect companion for the Derby Strap. The buckle is neat in form, making it sit well in formal outfits. At the same time, the brushed finish of the buckle allows it to blend in well with casual outfits. The leather has been treated so the surface has a some shine matching it to your shoes (that are of course polished recently, right?). Finally, the textured detailing on the surface of leather loosens up the look to compliment a variety of styles.
The belt is 3.3 cm wide and made from two layers of genuine leather with a synthetic core. This allows for stitch detailing without compromising look and feel. The buckle holes are oval in shape improving the durability and life span of the belt.
The buckle attachment is removable, allowing for custom adjustments for the belt length. This means that if you are in between sizes, you should choose the bigger size and cut off excess length. To do so, remove the buckle, cut off the desired length, and punch a new hole for the attachment screw. If you decide on adjusting the length, pay attention to the stitching and make sure that you seal off the open endings you create. Carefully melt them with a lighter to avoid unraveling threads.
The belt’s size is measured from where the buckle attaches (point A below) to the end of the belt tip (point B below). In general, your waist measure should be 15-20 cm shorter than the belt to achieve a good fit.
