    • 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 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.

    Gorgeous belt!

    This is my second belt purchase. I’m just as happy with this belt as I am with my first belt. It’s a real looker! I’ve worn it out on some dinner dates with my wife and friends and I gotta say. I’m the man! What a great looking belt. Perfect, gorgeous, made here in the states and the quality is second to none! Thanks again, C.B.

    Received the Havana one today. Immediately ordered the other two colors

    Received the Havana colored belt today and it’s of such higher quality than my other dress belts that I ordered the Black and Tan ones tonight. Really a sturdy-feeling and good-looking belt And yeah...it’s pricey, but I figure this will last for quite a while. if I go through a regular dress belt every 2-3 years for work (office shlub attire 5x a week) at $25-30, this should more than pay for itself. Just tossed three dark brown belts in the goodwill-bound box as a result of this one. Looking forward to tossing 4-5 black/light brown belts in as well once the new ones arrive. Downsizing + upquality and longevity bonus!
