Howies Buckle Belts

It’s that time again. Summer’s on its way out, Autumn’s on its way in, and the focus now is on how to get from one to the next without too quickly abandoning – or rushing – either. While that can make figuring out layers and outerwear a bit tricky (how to stay warm without looking wintery), accessories-wise the transition is much easier, or at least it can be, thanks to the Buckle Belts from Welsh brand Howies. Crafted in the UK by the expert belt-makers at Arnold Wills, the BBs are made from 100% organic cotton webbing and repurposed vegetable tanned leather scraps. Finished with an antiqued brass closure, they’re substantial enough to not feel out of place with a jacket or sweater, and yet light enough to also wear on the few remaining days of it still being too hot for either. And I’m looking forward to doing both.
