AQUILA’s green statement!

Aquila Fashions is on a quest to leave less rubbish behind us and we would like to invite you to join us too!

So, things to take note:

1. Whenever possible, we will post using only paper boxes without the use of plastic wraps! Less plastic = less non-biodegradable rubbish.

2. It would be great if you could bring your own shopping bag to our factory! We won’t need to use yet another plastic bag! (Every one less plastic used counts!)

ferragamo replacement belt

It seems like the obvious choice to replace the old Ferragamo belt. We placed a few leather belts in front of our customer and he decided on this pronto. Saffiano leather belts are a timeless classic that conceals scratches easily (they aren’t exactly scratch-proof) and that adds a subtle touch of class.

To replace your Ferragamo belt, please:

  • go to Categories at the top or side of this page
  • click on “Replace leather belt”

    We love the rustic/antique nickel look of this Braun Buffel buckle. For one, it is a buckle on which scratches just blend beautifully in. You won’t even notice major injuries as you would think that it is part of the buckle.

    Back to the service provided, the old worn out PU/leather alternative belt was replaced with a brand new full grain leather belt blank at Aquila Fashions.

    The little bull right at the tip of the buckle pin is most telling that this is a Braun Buffel branded belt buckle. Okay, no, the words engraved on the metal loop can’t be any more obvious hehe. Our customer found us online and came to us wearing this belt looking for a replacement belt strap. It was tattered and torn despite having only been bought barely a year ago.

    This leather belt that we sold our customer looks literally the same as the original one that has cracked and is peeling away, but ours is made of full grain leather, no less. No PU, no PVC, no alternatives.

    This is the single Braun Buffel buckle model that comes through our doors most frequently. We also frequently mail belts out solely for this buckle model to our customers without seeing the customer nor the buckle. This time round we’ve the opportunity to take a photo of this buckle with a saffiano leather belt blank.

    Beyond the worn out belt with the top layer peeling away, the original belt is one that is semi casual, without stitches along the edge. Our customer decided that she wanted her boyfriend to wear a more formal business looking belt, therefore she decided on the black saffiano belt.

    30mm black saffiano leather belt, SGD 80.00

    This saffiano leather belt was built by our customer (please see “Build your own belt” at the top or at the side of this page), and it certainly raised our eyebrows. We have an entire catalogue of regular nickel/silver colour buckles to choose from but our customer actually chose a brass colour buckle to go with his saffiano belt instead. It’s a pity we never met him because this order was done completely via direct messaging, otherwise it would be great to meet him and find out his dress style.

    We are glad that our saffiano leather collection is available in plus size.

    30mm NO edge stitching, SGD 40.00, red Italian leather belts

    This red leather belt sports a slightly more elaborate gold buckle. The buckle looks different with movement, from different angles, due to the layering on the relatively broad buckle, different from the “slim and simple” buckles generally preferred these days. Another fine detail we love about the buckle is the area on the inside where it comes in contact with the leather belt once fastened. The corners of the square are slightly rounded which complements the round external perimeter of the buckle.

    30mm with edge stitching, SGD 50.00, large belts for men

    This leather belt sports a plague buckle which has a chunk of the inside removed. The result is a slimline plague buckle that reduces the amount of metal surface and not compromise its function as a “pop in” buckle type.

    30mm with edge stitching, SGD 50.00, leather belts for big guys

    This leather belt model brings back the good ole times, sporting buckles that are really the few remaining treasures from the past that one of our buckle suppliers still kept. The stripes and circles cut into the solid brass plate on this vintage buckle “moves” when light reflected off the surface shifts when viewed from different angles.

    vegetable tanned leather belt blanks

    This leather belt is the product of a boring day. Having fixed a few “normal” buckles for a few “normal” black belts to fulfill orders, we thought we’ll try something new to keep the brain alive. The vegetable tanned leather belt in full business belt style complete with stitches is fitted with a (literally) vintage buckle for an alternative look. The stripes and circles cut into the solid brass plate on this vintage buckle “moves” when light reflected off the surface shifts when viewed from different angles.

    30mm with edge stitching, SGD 50.00, full leather belts for guys

    Formal leather belts are absolutely important for any business executive. However, some customers of ours like an alternative twist to their business belts. Instead of the “plain and simple” nickel/silver colour buckles, and also instead of flashy gold buckles, an antique gold/antique brass buckle is the preferred choice. A hint of difference without the overtness.

    30mm NO edge stitching, SGD 30.00, Italian mens leather belts

We have plenty of black leather belts made of full-grain leather (no PVC, no PU, no leather alternatives) for plus size gentlemen.
