I have been bombarded by "Belts For Sale" this morning on the internet. All claiming made in the USA, genuine leather, handmade and one that evens states Italian Leather with a steel insert. I have not seen one of these pieces of propaganda that pictured a well made belt - truly the art of hand crafting does not translate to a factory environment or mass production.
I have a very good friend that has been in the cattle business for 5 or 6 decades - 10 years longer than us. His words of wisdom have stayed with me for as long as I have know him and simply put "it's better to know the breeder than the breeding." Same with Quillins - you buy 40+ years of expertise and dedication to our customers and the products we make.
Now to our belts:
Every strap is hand cut and sized
We use only the finest hand selected medium / heavy English Finished Bridle Leather - the same as our halters. Single ply leather goes into every robust belt we hand craft.
Solid Brass Buckles or Stainless Steel (on our Black Belts) with a traditional #5 buckle pattern that goes back generation. Many of our fine leather goods are ordered with an engraved name plate - once again made in-house and of exceptional quality.
Fine finished hand rubbed edges with either stitched or riveted construction.
Made in our Main Street Shops in Paris Kentucky
Don't expect to wear this belt out in a year or two - think decades, just like our halters. Be sure and order the right size as these custom made items are non-returnable. Click here for sizing help
