leather traditions

November 15, 2011


Your stable of leather goods should include belts by Wiley Brothers of Charlottesville, VA.

Started in 1999 by two brothers, the company specializes in hand-made leather belts.

Marcus and Paul grew up in rural Virginia on an active horse farm and have a deep appreciation for the look, feel, smell and durability of vegetable-tanned English bridle leather.

Their four-loop, hoof pick belt ($145) is their signature and a favorite of horse lovers and others. The buckle is hand-stitched to bridle leather and hooks into one of four loops. The belt comes in a variety of leather colors and odd/even sizes from 28 to 42.

Other popular belt styles include the slip cinch ($120), the dress ($145) and the traditional buckle ($120). When the company started, it offered two belt styles in two colors. Now there are six styles and 10 colors.
