The Free Union Belt

$165.00

Crafted from large-hide English bridle leather, The Free Union’s Tobacco leather strap has been stripped, beveled, stitched, dyed and burnished, all by hand. The buckle is a unique quick release mechanism first employed as a hose clamp by England’s National Fire Service in the 19th century. Cast locally, it is formed from a high-density white bronze metal. Over time, the white bronze will develop a slight natural patina, giving each buckle its own tint and character.

Beautiful Belt but leather was scratched up
on

This is a great looking belt with quality leather combined with a classy and unique buckle.

However, I bought this as a gift for my father's 65th birthday. Unfortunately, the belt had scratches and scrapes near the end where the holes are - so right in front. I didn't notice this until my old man put on the belt (the plastic bag the belt came in shielded the damage while I wrapped it). My guess is I was sent a belt that was returned by another customer.

I am disappointed in the fact that I was sent a product which was damaged - especially when giving it as a gift to someone special. This is not the superior quality that I have come to expect from Ledbury as I have purchased or received as gifts about half a dozen shirts over the past few years.

This belt is great it was a gift from me to a friend of mine who had recently graduated law school. It was a huge hit with all of our friends and a great gift I will be soon purchasing one for myself.

I love this belt. I get compliments on it constantly. The leather is thick and will wear well over time.
