Terms & Conditions

3 Year Leather Guarantee

We guarantee our leather for 3 full years. In that time, if it splits or separates then we will replace the leather free of charge (we'll cover the postage too).

Just send us evidence to show what happened (e.g. a photo by email).

Product colours

Product colours may differ slightly from the actual item. This is because of the photography process and our/your screen/display.

Silver and Gold

When we describe a product as being in silver or gold we are referring to the COLOUR and NOT the precious metals. If a buckle is gold or silver plated then we will state this very clearly.

Product size

Buckles: We use a bendy plastic ruler to get our buckle measurements, not a micrometer. So we might be out by a millimetre or two.

Belts: For belts we ask for your waist size.If you would like a belt to go around your hips, just give us your hip measurement instead!

Buckle wire loops

In nearly all the images the metal loop at the back of the buckle is not shown. Most of the buckles won't stand up on their own so something was clamped to the loop during the photography.

Amending your order

You can amend your order by adding or removing items in your shopping cart.  If you need to change your order afterwards, you can email us or call.  Please don't leave it too long though or we may have posted it.

Postage & Packing

We only deliver to the UK.

For UK orders of 30 or more, there is NO p&p charge - delivery is free!

For UK orders up to £30, the p&p charge is £3.49.
