Our long awaited Burgundy Shell Cordovan belt, is now back!Artisanally made, as the rest of our belts, the strap width is 35mm & is fully vegetable tanned leather lined. We do not use interlinings to produce our belts, just leather for an added confort & durability. Finished with a single guard & exclusive nickel plated solid brass Italian buckles.Our first impression when we started working with this Italian Shell Cordovan, is that weve found this Shells to be softer & more flexible (pretty similar to the US-made one in terms of flexibility & tanning) than the Japanese one were also using. While, on the other hand, we found the Japanese Shell finish more natural & very transparent showing the different & beautiful hues of the Shell, while the Italian version is more regular in tone, but when sun-lightened up shows all its beauty. Different ways to produce the same incredible material & both great on its own way!This Italian Shell Cordovan is handmade by a small, family owned Tannery located in the heart of the Tuscany, full vegetable tanned, naturally air dried, finished & glazed by hand to achieve this soft & beautiful result.Leather goods made with this precious leather are made to last & get more confortable over the time. Shoes with this precious leather will develope a deep patina over the time, that will add its very own special character.Unfortunately nowadays, Shell Cordovan quantities are very restricted and because of that, these runs are very limited.NOTE: Our belts are measured from the middle hole to end of the belt (Buckle included). Usually it is recommended to go for one size larger than your trousers.
