Description

The Esquire is the favorite of the owner of Hanks Belts. Whether you are wearing dress pants or jeans the Esquire will complement your outfit with a slightly more refined style that is sure to impress.

We start with the same English Bridle leather we use in our Canyon belt. The Esquire is then lined with premium leather so that you have the same quality inside and out. The 1 1/4” width is perfect for a sleeker look and fits the belt loops of all jeans or pants.

The inside of the belt is raised with a separate full leather strip creating a distinctive appearance. The unique construction of the Esquire belt will last for years, age well, and conform to the individual shape of your body over time.

As with all Hanks Belts, the Esquire is made by skilled craftsmen the way a belt would have been made a hundred years ago.

Vegetable tanned leather, unlike chromium tanned leather, uses no harsh chemicals. Mimosa powder, derived from tree bark from Africa, gives the rich finish of the leather used on these belts. The devoted process takes six weeks from rawhide to finished leather ready to be cut and sewn into a Hanks Belt. The final step is hand burnishing every hide. Though it is a labor-intensive process it results in a unique, extremely fine finish.

Vegetable tanned leather develops a patina that improves with age. The appearance develops with wear giving each belt its own individual characteristics.

We use top quality hardware to finish it off. Our more refined all stainless steel roller buckle provides easy buckling and unbuckling. The superior quality stainless steel buckle costs six times more than a standard plated steel buckle, which is no less than this belt deserves. Our Chicago screws hold it all together so you can easily swap buckles yet never have to worry about snaps which can become weakened and unreliable with over time.

An awesome belt that fills a wide range of dress styles, The Esquire is a belt you will reach for time and time again.

    Fantastic dress belt

    I have the Esquire dress belts in all three colors. Exemplary construction and function as with all Hanks belts that I now own.

    Overwhelming Quality

    I got my belts yesterday—I bought two of the Esquire model. They arrived quickly and I was blown away with the quality when I opened the package. I put one on and it was the perfect fit. So much so that I threw my other inferior belts in the trash. I can tell from the build quality that these are belts that will last a lifetime. Way to go Hank!

    Finally A Belt Build To Really Last

    I received a belt made for blue jeans from my daughter as a Christmas gift and have bee very impressed with the quality and thickness of the leather, as I am tough on less expensive belts. Have been so impressed that I recently purchased a second belt for dress occasions. Not the least expensive but then again you get what you pay for. Love a good worn-in belt.

    I guess the best thing I can say is I’m in the process of picking out my next Hank’s Belt.

    Belt Sizing Instructions

    (Press ESC or 'X' on top right to close)

    QUICK FIT:

    If you are using your belt to carry a firearm
    BUY 2 SIZES LARGER THAN PANT SIZE:
    EX: 36 PANTS...BUY 40 BELT

    For use without carrying items on the belt. 
    BUY 1 SIZE LARGER THAN PANT SIZE:
    EX: 36 PANTS...BUY 38 BELT

     THIS RESULTS IN A GREAT FIT OVER 95% OF THE TIME.


    100% PERFECT FIT:

    MEASURE A BELT YOU ARE CURRENTLY WEARING

    This is super easy to do, only takes a few minutes, and virtually guarantees a perfect fit. Just follow the below instructions and make sure the belt you measure fits you well the way you will be using it with any gear attached.

    Lay out your belt on a smooth flat surface. It is probably slightly curved but don't worry about that. Just measure through the curve.

    Place a tape measure where the buckle meets the leather (do not include buckle length in measurement) and measure, in inches, to the hole you currently use to buckle your belt:


    Scroll down to the description on the page and click on the tab that says "Additional
    Sizing Help" (on mobile phones scroll down under the description, and you will see the
    tab)

     


    Now scroll down to the belt sizing chart and match the measurement you got above with the number in the "Measurement to the 4th Hole" column in the chart.

    If you are between measurements, size up one unless you plan on losing weight in which case you should size down one.

    For example, if you measured 37" to the hole you currently use you should purchase a 38" belt size. If you measured 38" you should purchase a 40" belt size.

    Note that our belts are made by hand and variances in measurements can occur. Variances are slight, though, and will not affect the sizing.


    That's it! Select your size, double check it is correct on the add to cart button, and add to cart.

    And just to be safe, Hanks Belts offers free exchanges if needed, so you never have to worry about additional cost if you do order an incorrect size.
