    Our bridle leather belts are made in one of the finest leathers known, top quality waxed bridle leather. Only the prime back section of the hide is used, and all belts are cut lengthwise, the direction of greatest strength in the hide. The natural top grain is used, with its normal variation in texture and patterning. Often belt makers remove the top grain and emboss for a smooth finish, but this weakens the leather. Phillip Hawk belts use the full grain, making each belt unique, complete with any natural irregularities and variations in the leather.

    The dye used in Phillip Hawk belts only permeates the surface of the leather, and is only applied to the outer surfaces. Dyes that penetrate leather weaken the belt. Although these bridle leather belts with only surface dye are very strong, excessive weight on the belt, such as when used as a tool belt or with gun holsters, will wear away the dye. We do not recommend these belts as heavy duty work belts.

    The belts are bench made, with full attention to detail. Edges are rounded, polished and finished with a line inside the edge. The end keeper is formed and sewn. Hand crafted in the USA.

  • Belt Size

    Belt size depends on your girth where your belt is worn and the buckle you intend using with the belt. The belt size is measured from the buckle end of the belt leather to the hole used.

    You can determine your belt size using one of the following methods. Most of our belts allow about +/- 1½ inches adjustment in size. If you are between sizes, order the next size up.

    Belt Measurement

    Method 1

    Measure a belt you are currently using from the buckle end of the belt leather to the hole in use. Round to the nearest ½ inch, then determine your belt size from the following chart. This method works best when you have a belt that fits well and will be using a similar belt buckle with your new belt.

    Belt Size 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44
    Belt Measurement (inches) 28½-30 30½-32 32½-34 34½-36 36½-38 38½-40 40½-42 42½-44
    Girth at Belt 28-29 30-31 32-33 34-35 36-37 38-39 40-41 42-43

    Belt Size Belt Measurement (inches) Girth at Belt
    30 28½-30 28-29
    32 30½-32 30-31
    34 32½-34 32-33
    36 34½-36 34-35
    38 36½-38 36-37
    40 38½-40 38-39
    42 40½-42 40-41
    44 42½-44 42-43

    Method 2

    Measure your girth at your belt loops while wearing your pants. This measurement will correspond to the belt measurement plus the buckle. Determine your belt size from the chart above. This method works well for belts worn around the hips when you do not have an existing belt to measure.

    A note on buckles ...

    Normal buckles, including all the buckles we sell, add between 1 and 2 inches to the total belt plus buckle measurement when the belt is fastened. If you are planning on using a very large buckle, such as a western style trophy buckle, a smaller belt size might be needed.

  • Care

    Fine leather deserves good care. We suggest a light coating of Pecard Leather Dressing every six months to help maintain the fine appearance and durability of these belts.
