BELT SIZE GUIDE
To find your belt size you have a number of options:
- Measure an old belt that you own. Start at where the leather folds over the buckle and measure to the hole you use to close the belt. This exact measurement, is the size of the belt you need. No need to add 2" (5cm) to this measurement. This is the most accurate way to arrive at your belt size.
- Go by your trouser or skirt size, in inches, and add 2" (5cm). With a 34 waist trouser, you would need a size 36 belt.
- Measure your waist at the point you will wear the belt: either your natural waist, or your 'jeans' waist lower down. Add 2" (5cm) to this measurement, to arrive at your belt size.

This product is made using premium quality organic vegetable tanned leather from Sweden, certified 100% organic by the Organic Content Standard (OCS). It has been hand dyed and can therefore bleed colour. Please be careful around light coloured clothing.
Before leaving the atelier, it was waxed and polished to make it water resistant. Over time this coating will come off so I recommend using Dasco Dubbin, Kiwi neutral shoe polish or some other wax based polish (ideally of a neutral colour) on a regular basis to protect and nourish the leather and to maintain its water resistance.
LEATHER CARE GUIDE
Here at Simeon Morris we take great care in making sure our products are made to the absolute highest standards of quality and craftsmanship. To maintain this quality and to increase the longevity or your piece, please note the following guidelines.
Your bag leaves our atelier with a water resistant preparation. However, prolonged exposure to water will potentially stain or mark the leather, especially on a paler colour like our London Tan. We recommend you keep your bag out of torrential downpours.
To keep your bag clean we recommend a good saddle soap such as Fiebings neutral saddle soap. Otherwise, a good neutral polish will help care for and nourish your leather.
Leather needs some nourishment to stay supple and help replenish the natural oils present in the hide, to prevent drying over time. Such products will also keep the leather water resistant as well. Here at Simeon Morris we recommend Fiebings Aussie Leather Conditioner. Applying such a treatment twice a year will help prolong the life of your bag.
For a more frequent care, we highly recommend Saphir Neutral Nappa polish. This really is the creme de la creme of leather polish, helping to nourish and weather proof the leather and leaving a glorious lustrous shine.
