TRACE CARRIER BELT
 
 
This style of trace carrier buckle was used on horse and wagon harness in the old days. Some versions of it are still used today. It makes for a unique belt buckle. We hand stitch the solid brass buckle onto the English Bridle strap. Because the strap doubles back, just like our double ring belts, we reverse the adjustable end by cutting, gluing and stitching it into place so the finished side of the bridle leather always shows. Some prefer just three holes, but the normal five work well. The reversed end piece is shorter on the three hole version, but adjustability is more limited.
 
Colors - L to R, are medium brown, chestnut, burgundy, dark brown, and black. Undyed, natural leather too (single piece to the right).

Strap width - 1-3/8", buckle 2-3/4"(L - R) x 2-5/8"

BELT SIZE

Please determine belt size by measuring a currently used belt. Pants waist size is no longer a reliable way to determine belt size.
 
ALL BELTS ARE MADE TO ORDER
SIZE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. PLEASE MEASURE. NO RETURNS.

Measure from point "A" on the buckle to the most used hole on your current belt.  It might not be the middle hole. This measurement is usually 2 to 5 inches bigger than your pants waist size.  Note that “A” on the top belt is just inside the buckle end where the swivel tongue meets the buckle body…..and that “A” on the bottom belt is at the base of the hook. It’s important that the working length of the buckle be included in your measurement.

Point "B" on the new belt will be the middle of 5 holes (or loops on some styles).
