Product History

The unique Quick Release Belt, the first one of its’ kind made by Tim Hardy in the mid-nineties, by chance when he discovered an old 1” pattern in a market in Ludlow, England. Snapping it up for pennies, he remembered it owed its origins to the firemen of yesteryear when during the 'Great Fire of London' he believes, early fire tenders equipped with this type of buckle on straps retaining the coiled leather hoses, utilised its quick release mechanism to free their hoses with speed.

Received belt today. Beautiful ! Love it !

Finally received the belt, I guess the post office was dragging their feet. It took me all of 30 seconds to tear through the package and the box to put it on. The belt looks amazing, pictures don't do it justice. :-)
Thank you!

This time, I purchased by private import the quick-release belt.
I thank very much I willingly according to the specification of the dispatch method.
The quality of the leather is also match very well Trickers shoes at a high level.

Was a shame only a little, was a rough finish to the surface scraping of the buckle it is that it was a little.
There is largely due to personal preference for here, but I was worried about some personally.

However, I am very pleased In consideration of the fact that I was able to buy relatively cheap when it comes to buy the same products of other manufacturers in Japan, because the 20,000 yen or so.
I think by all means, I want to recommend it to friends.

Dear Tim,

I received the belt today. It is a very nice piece of craftsmanship and I’m fully satisfied with the extra keeper design the way you made it.

Size is perfect and I look forward to wear it after Christmas, since it is actually intended to become a gift to me from my wife (she already liked and “approved” the appeal of it when I tried it on). This is the first “real” belt I have bought, I will wear it with pride knowing that it is somewhat unique with the two keepers, made for me.

Thank you for your great Customer care and I appreciate your immediate approach of trying to fulfill (successfully) my request. If I have a chance, I will recommend to visit your shop to anybody who needs superior leather ware and outstanding Customer service.

Best regards

Hello Tim,
I received the quick release belt in London tan today in great packaging. The leather is amazingly soft and buttery, and the size fits well, fastening comfortably on the second tightest of five holes. Do you find that the brass on the quick release buckle darkens/oxidizes over time? I am looking forward to wearing this belt for many years as it changes and develops a nice patina. Thank you for the great workmanship, the quality is truly superb.

Dear Tim

Many thanks for my belt, recently received.

I am highly impressed by the quality which is predictably top notch, and I was complimented upon its first wearing by an acquaintance, who is planning to purchase one himself.

It even smells nice

Good day, Tim!
For Christmas I was gifted something I have been dreaming of getting; your quick release belt.
I was absolutely ecstatic about the quality and over-all the product: The impeccable craftmanship, thick leather and gorgeous, outstanding look of the belt.
I’m a great admirer of your work, and now I own something! I also wanted to express my gratitude for your incredible work.
Merry Christmas and wish you a good new year ;)
