The P-47 “Jug” Belt
If you are looking for a great beefy buckle to really make a statement, the P-47 belt will do that and more. This belt is named after the U.S. Army Air Corps rugged multi role fighter that could absorb a lot of wear and tear and still get its pilots home at the end of a mission.
This belt is made from English Bridle leather and is lined with vegetable tanned leather. This hand-made belt is about half of the thickness of ESB belts, thus designed to look great, and to be a lot trimmer.
What all of this means for a Churchill Leather customer is that they will have a belt to last a lifetime. The leather will not shrink, and because of the vegetable tanned liner there is zero chance of any bleeding over of color from the English bridle leather to your trousers. I am offering a LIFETIME warranty on my belts for any defects. The belt will either be repaired, or replaced.
I hand cut the English Bridle leather into straps, which is the first of a 22 step process to give customers a beautiful belt that is not just a strap of leather with a buckle and some holes punched into it. Some of the last steps are edge include burnishing and dressing the edges.
These belts are finished with solid brass hardware, made in England, from a foundry that dates to the mid 1800’s and that holds a Royal Warrant from the Queen. If the Queen of England approves, you should too. And I use leather from, Wickett & Craig, a tannery in Pennsylvania, that dates to 1867.
