Anderson's textile braided black belt Product Information

Most motorcycle belts are thick and heavy leather affairs. They're consistent with the 'tough guy' aesthetic that many of us bikers, somewhat delusionally, still cling to. Of course , such belts will do the job; they will hold your pants up. But such belts are not necessarily comfortable. The wider the belt itself, and the thicker the leather, the less comfortable it can prove. And when you're facing hours in the saddle, that's not always an alluring prospect. 
 
An elasticated, woven belt is so much nicer on the bike. And offers many benefits. An elasticated belt will allow you to alter where your jeans sit, whether it be on, above, or just below the waist. And that's important because this will allow you to also adjust where the hem of the jean sits. Loosen the belt to drop the jean when you're on the bike, perhaps. Tighten the belt off the bike to raise the hem. In theory, you could do this with a leather belt, but a leather belt will never have the micro adjustability of a woven belt. A leather belt will never be as comfortable. And a leather belt will never stay in the same place all day long in the way that a woven belt will be; and that's because, over time, a leather belt will relax.
 
 Our belt is made to our specific requirements by a company that is considered by many people in the fashion world to be the maker of the world's finest belts; a company by the name of Anderson's
 
Anderson's is an Italian company. They only make belts, and they've been making them in the same factory in Parma for over 50 years. Their belts are made entirely by hand; and making one belt entails more than 100 separate processes. To call them artisanal belts would not be inaccurate; but such a description does not to justice to the quality of the end product. These belts are seriously lovely; works of art.
 
We wanted a woven belt in order to offer the highest level of adjustability. We decided on a braided, stretchy textile, as opposed to leather, for the last word in comfort. At 3.5 cm, we went for the widest belt in the Anderson's range. And we wanted their chunkiest, most motorcycling-like buckle. We ended up with one with brushed chrome plating over a brass casting. To reduce the chances of scratching the tank, we chose leather for the belt loop, the buckle holder and the tip.
 
Make no mistake. There's nothing lightweight or flimsy about these belts. They are the strongest, woven belts you will ever come across. They will keep your jeans sat exactly where you want them to be sat. They will do that without any compromise in terms of comfort. And they will do it all day long. We are very excited about these belts. In our view they are the perfect way to keep a motorcycle jean in the right place.
 
We know how conservative most bikers are, so whilst Anderson's offer an enormous range of colours for their braided belts, we have gone for black, brown, khaki green and blue.
 
All belts are adjustable, but few are as adjustable and versatile as an elasticated, braided belt, which means that as you gain or lose weight, your Anderson's belt will come along for the ride.
 
We are offering three sizes. The smallest size is for 32" to 34" waists, the middle size is 36" to 38", the largest is 40" to 42". Now these measurements are based on your jean size rather than your actual waist size. If you wear a jean labelled as a waist 33", you will want the smallest size. If your jean has a 42" waist, you will want the largest belt.

Peter: Classy belt

So glad I read the email Chris sent out upon this belts launch because its one of those subtle wardrobe tweaks thats made all the difference this riding season. Id never considered wearing anything other than a heavy duty leather belt while riding, yet Id simultaneously also never considered the needless added weight of a leather belt. Well, its heating up excessively here in the Southeastern US, and when this belt arrived a few weeks ago, I havent ridden without it since! A real gamechanger from the perspective of feeling lighter on the bike while still feeling secure. The micro-adjustability is super beneficial and this Anderson feels every bit as robust as a top-tier leather belt. Thanks, Chris for bringing this product to the MC community.
