Tim- Your belt arrived today (11/13). Beautiful craftsmanship and fits perfectly (Order #10648).
I shall refer to it as "my" belt hereafter..... since I'll be wearing it immediately.
I do have a quick question however.
I noticed what looks like a slight "bloom" on the leather from the tanning process.
Can I use a leather creme or something to reduce the bloom or will it just disappear over time with age?
Thanks again for a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.

Tim, I just wanted to let you know I am delighted with the two belts.
I’ve been wearing them over the last week and the quality is simply fantastic. I’ve never had belts like these and will not use anything else going forward.

Hello Tim,
The 1-1/2" wide belt arrived in good order and in good time. Thank you! It is a handsome belt and fully meets the high expectations I had for this belt. Between the two belts (1-1/4" and 1-1/2" widths), I am prepared for a full range of applications and occasions. I'm pleased to have "stumbled upon" your website.
And thanks for the attention you gave to both orders.
Best regards,

Hi Tim,
Received my belts and I'm very pleased.
I think there as good as belts can be.
Will use you again in future.
Many thanks

Tim dealt with a barrage of questions from me, and was willing to mix and match buckles from other styles of belt with the oak bark leather. Eventually I realised I was making things far more complicated than I needed and that a 2 inch belt with double prongs was overkill and would actually struggle to get into my belt loops!

Instead the rugged simplicity of the Drayman was what I needed. Followed the guidance on the website, measured from another well used belt and in less than two weeks my new belt arrived. The leather is thick yet supple and the workmanship is fantastic. I imagine this will be cherished, used and abused for many many years.

Very many thanks for getting this sorted for me, your approach to resolving an initial misunderstanding on my part has been most refreshing and greatly appreciated!

Hi Tim,
The belt arrived this morning and is absolutely perfect, beautifully made as expected,
your craftsmanship is something that is probably dying out so it is nice to get a handmade
belt of that quality, thanks for all your efforts.

Thank you. It fits nicely so my measuring (and yours) was correct. Very pleased with it, I believe it will outlast me....
Any special advice regarding cleaning, oiling or any other maintenance would be welcome, but it’s a lovely piece of work
Best regards

Good morning Tim,
My order of a Drayman's Oak Bark Leather Belt arrived safely this morning and fits perfectly.
I'm a retired craftsman that once restored high-end English and continental antique furniture for London and the home counties, I also hold two fine art degrees.
The quality and craftsmanship of this, your Drayman's Oak Bark Leather Belt, is outstanding, I am more than delighted.
Thank you for your service, your personal handwritten note and your elegant craftsmanship.
Kind regards
Robert McConnell

Dear Tim,
I received my Draymans belt this a.m.
Really pleased with it and love the fit and more importantly so does the wife.!
Will also be keeping the presentation box with your kind note.
With thanks Alan (Johnson)

Hi Tim
The belt has arrived and James is so very pleased with it, thank you.
The belt has replaced an old favourite that had given up so James is pleased that he has found a replacement of such high quality.
Thank you again.

I just wanted to let you know I bought one of your belt years ago and I still wear it daily after all this time !
It’s still in perfectly good condition even if I really don’t take much care of it (I don’t know what product to put on it to help with longevity).
I also still fit in the second hole and don’t have to use the third one yet haha.
Keep up the good work, I’ll look into buying one of the wallet when I can ! It’s a pleasure to possess something of such quality !
Kind regards,

Yes, it’s arrived, and is very nice indeed! Thank you very much. I am not sure which son will get it, for fear of instigating jealousy/envy - so perhaps it’s me that should enjoy it, till I die: then there’ll be a belt each??
Again, my thanks, Tim,
