    • The Premier Double Leather Gun Belt - 18 oz. - 1.5"

      A leather gun belt that is in a class of its own. When you are ready to step up to a belt that stands apart from the rest take Hanks 1.5" wide Premier Double Leather English Bridle Belt into consideration.

      No other belt comes close to the quality of this belt, in this class, at this price. Comparable belts can cost upwards of $185.00 and still won't measure up to the quality, feel, durability, and construction of this USA handmade belt.

      We start with the best genuine USA made vegetable-tanned bridle leather on the market. Vegetable-tanned leather is more expensive than traditional chemically tanned leather primarily because of the skill required to tan the hides. It's a 200-year-old process handed down through generations of skilled craftsmen. This same skill, though, results in hides of much higher quality. Plus:  

      • Vegetable-tanned leather
      • When all-natural tannins are used it results in each finished piece having its own unique look. No two hides are exactly the same so they each have their own characteristics.
      • A vegetable-tanned leather gun belt gets richer and warmer looking with age. Like a fine wine, their desirability increases over time developing a rich warm patina that simply can't be duplicated any other way.
      • The colors from vegetable-tanned leather are warm, natural, and rich-looking.

      Once we had the leather we wanted we didn't skimp on the hardware. Rugged solid stainless steel roller buckles give a refined, classy, but masculine look. The roller buckle makes fastening and unfastening your belt a breeze.

      Want to change the buckle to one of your choosing? No problem. We use rugged, yet handsome, Chicago screws to hold the belt together so you can easily swap buckles. The screwed together construction ensures your belt stays fastened, unlike snaps.

      Once we had everything laid out we decided to make this belt the most dependable, durable belt on the market. So we doubled up and sewed two pieces of this quality leather together making the original Hanks Double English Leather Bridle Belt complete. The result is a leather gun belt that looks good enough to wear with a sports coat and slacks and rugged enough to function as the premier CCW belt. 

      The perfect addition to any discerning man's wardrobe or the perfect gift for the man that appreciates the quality of fine handcrafted USA made leather products.

    • Would this belt look good with dress clothes?

      Absolutely! The finish on this belt is very rich looking and dressy enough to wear with dress clothes. It is an 18oz belt so you would want to make sure your belt loops can accommodate a thick belt.

    Incredible Customer Service

    I mistakenly bought a huge size 40, and as soon as I received it I returned it using their website. They sent me a size 38 very quickly. I noticed that size was also too big, so I returned it once again for the size 36 I have now. They paid for the return shipping both times, and emailed me the shipping return label every time. I purchased the premium belt, and it’s the sturdiest and most handsome belt I own. Now that I know my size, I’ll continue to purchase belts from Hank’s especially since the belt on my work belt is wearing out.

    The best belt I have ever owned period.

    Let me tell you a story of the finest belt I have ever owned. Customer service is excellent to start off with. I had some questions regarding sizing, and Brian contacted me through email on a weekend and gave me the run down on sizes. If you follow the steps to sizing you will have no issues. Shipping was fast and easy through USPS. It got here fast even with the pandemic going on. This is truly a work of art! The belt is thick and built to last the rest of your life. All American right here. Honestly everyone that has seen me wear this belt has given me compliments. In my pictures I decided to change out the buckle for my own and I couldn't be happier. The Chicago screw mechanism comes off easy if you want to exchange buckles. It took me about two minutes to do it. It can be worn for concealed carry, work, or even a good dress suit. It fits well while carrying a weapon and with no sagging. Im sure this belt will outlast me. To hanksbelts and staff. Thank you so much for the positive experience with yourselves and your product. You have won me over and I was always will recommend a hanksbelt.
