The step-by-step instructions

Copy and paste

We require the following details. For your convenience, copy and paste the following in your email or whatsapp:

  • Step 1: structure of belt: open end/close end (delete accordingly)
  • Step 2: width: indicate (round figure up to nearest millimetre)
  • Step 3: colour and model: indicate
  • Step 4: length: L = ? / L1 = ? / L2 = ? (fill in and/or delete accordingly)
  • Step 5: other information: indicate

There are no hard and fast rules, so please do not worry about mistakes. We will clarify with you all details before confirmation of order via payment is made.

Step 1: belt structure

Is your leather belt strap open ended or close ended:

Open-end: One end of the belt plays no aesthetic function and can be shortened. Eg, most regular belts. Sometimes, they may be stitched directly onto the buckles because that end plays no (aesthetic) function except to hold the belt onto the buckle. It can still be unstitched and shortened and are considered open ended nevertheless.

Close-end: Both ends of the belt are sealed and play an aesthetic function. The length is precise. Shortening these belts require special attention, to reseal the cut end properly and to dye the exposed edges. Eg, Dunhill belts, Hermes belts, LV belts, Yves Saint Laurent belts etc.

Step 2: belt strap width

What is the width of your current leather belt strap? Please round up to the nearest millimetre (28mm, 30mm, 32mm, 35mm).

Step 3: model and texture

Please indicate which of the popular black models and textures right at the top of this page you prefer.

Step 4: length

The length to purchase is best based on the length of the belt you currently use. Please ensure that the old belt you are measuring is not one that you have not used in years and that may be too short for you now.

Open-end: Measure the length of your current leather belt strap from the end of belt (excluding the buckle) to the hole that you use most often, as shown in the diagrams. It does not matter if that hole is the hole in the center or not. The rationale is to measure the actual length that you wear.

Close-end: Measure the length L of your current leather belt from the pin to the most used hole. It does not matter if that hole is the hole in the center or not. If there are additional dimensions such as L1 and L2, please measure them as well.

Our waist size and pants size is not an accurate length because most people wear their belts close to the hips, rather than directly on the waist. The length physically measured using a measuring tape is called the True Wearable Length. Please indicate the length in inches.

Step 5: other information

Feel free to provide us more information if your belt does not fall within the “normal” belt structure range.

Step 6: Confirming your order

  1. Send order or place inquiries by emailing keching at keching@aquilafashions.com.sg or whasapping +65 96637673.
  2. Once all inquiries have been properly addressed and you are ready to confirm purchase, we will provide:
    • local bank account (transfer, paynow or paylah)
    • Paypal account (for international orders only)
  3. Most products are made to order and will take up to two weeks to day of postage. For time sensitive orders, eg gifts for birthdays, etc please give us at least two week’s notice as we have to factor in the amount of time mailing takes.
  4. For extremely urgent orders please make arrangements to collect your ready product directly at our factory.

Step 7: After sales support

If mail gets lost, AQUILA will send you another belt accordingly. Just inform us that that you have not received your order.

Length of belt too long: arrange an appointment with Keching to have it shortened at our factory.

Length of belt too short: we welcome a one for one exchange, provided it is in re-saleable condition, ie absolutely no marks or signs of the belt having been worn. Applies to international customers as well.

If belt is in pristine condition, arrange an appointment with Keching to have it exchanged at our factory. For international customers, please arrange to ship belt back to us via any service that provides a tracking number. We will ship the second belt out to you as soon as we receive the first belt. Further shipping costs apply.

On reasonable grounds, AQUILA reserves the rights to refuse any exchange/replacement etc.

Black leather belt straps for Braun Buffel buckle

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.

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.
