    • 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.

    Great belt

    Fairly new, only wear it for casual wear, or dressing up. Will take some time to break in as was pointed out on your web site. Real well made.

    Esquire is Dress-Rugged!

    I originally bought the Havana color. I was so impressed by the quality and durability, I bought the Black and Tan too. I am fussy about the belts I wear. and finding quality belts in department stores At a fair price is frustrating. I wear my Hank’s belt daily now. Very pleased. I also bought the 1 1/2” tan gun belt, high quality durability.
