I just wanted to let you know I received the wallet. It’s fantastic! Thank you so much for your great work!
Hi Henry —
Received the belt and am very pleased with it. The workmanship and leather quality are outstanding. The fit is perfect.
Just received my first order. Beautiful. Very pleased. And, yes, I did measure (5 times).
Thank you Henry for the great Ranger belts. They are exactly what I was looking for: quality material, superior workmanship, in a subtly
Received the belt. Really nice craftsmanship. If there was some rating service, I'd give you 5 stars. Great turnaround time too.
I’ve been wearing the belt non-stop the last week and really like it. I actually bought a 1.5” double ring belt from y’all back in 2015 and have liked it so much that I wanted one in the 1.25” width to wear with pants with smaller belt loops. I really appreciate all of the great work and quick turn around on the belts I’ve bought over the past two years. I’m sure I’ll be back to make another purchase before long.
I received the Ranger Belt you made for my 4 pc. buckle set and I have to say that I expected good things given the reviews I read before ordering; but somehow you managed to exceed my expectations. I have bought belts from top boutiques in Santa Fe and Dallas paying twice the price, but this belt is the best I have acquired thus far. I think the black leather with wheat stitching looks great and compliments the buckle. Thanks again for the quick turn-around and such a FINE product. Look for my second belt order this coming week.
Hope you had a fine Christmas. The belt is really good. It fits well and gives good support for everything I hang on it. I wish I could give you some tips for improvements but I can’t . It is in all ways a fine hand crafted item. My compliments. Count me as one of your very satisfied customers.
Best regards for a great New Year.
I got my belts today. So fine!
they both buckle on the center holes so the fit is perfect. hopefully i will never visit outer hole territory!!
Yes, I received it and worn it. As usual it is a very nice belt! I find it very comfortable and a good looking belt.
Since I have purchased from you before I know the quality of work you do.
Thank you for such a nice belt!
This is my second ponderosa wallet from you guys. It is very nice , and the service was very good thank you...

I have just placed the order for my third belt from LGC. I would think that would say a lot about the quality of these fine American made belts.
Henry makes the best belts on the market, hands down. This is the second belt I've purchased from him - the first is over 20 years old and looks as good as the day I bought it. I'm only buying a new belt because I have finally lost enough weight that I am running out of holes on the belt. I truly believe that one of Henry's belts would last my entire life (I only wish I had bought my first one at 20 instead of 50).
I spent most of my life buying department store belts which wore out after a couple of years. I have also bought a couple of wallets from Leather Goods Connection and they exhibit the same superior quality. The initial cost may seem high, but averaged out over a lifetime of use, they would be cheap at twice the price.
Got my belt back yesterday and it looks great and fits perfectly.
Thanks for the great work!
Just got my belts back in the mail that I sent you to adjust the length. They fit great. Thank you for going the extra mile to touch up the various scuffs on them....they look almost new again! It's nice to know that there are still people like you who take pride in their work.
Thanks once again....
belt arrived today - really quick shipping.
Color, length, quality - all perfect.
Thanks and kind regards,
Product arrived when expected and was of very high quality.
My old belt lasted 30 years of daily use, I expect the new one to give me long service.
Received my order 24837 on 9/14/2016.
I must admit that I was initially skeptical however, your belt
exceeded my expectations in every department. You do
what you say you are going to do on your internet ad.
Received my belt today. I am very impressed with the quality, price, available options, and speedy turnaround. I recommend Leather Goods Connection to anyone looking for quality leather goods.
I love my wallets and belts, Henry's gear is unique. Beautifully made, outstanding in quality
Don from Australia
Very satisfied with my purchase! Beautiful leather belt that I am certain will last my husband a lot longer than cheaper chain-store purchased ones. Handwritten note from owner was an appreciated touch. My preference is to purchase American-made goods and this belt is a piece of craftsmen-ship. While a bit more than what I or my husband may have anticipated to pay, it is an investment we are happy to have made.
Thank you for your excellent work in completing this order for two LGC belts, both of them exactly as I hoped, and for also including a 1-1/2 inch brass keeper loop for a belt that my wife's owns! As in the past, I'm very impressed by the quality of your leather products and customer service.
A fine top quality product, with seamless ordering and quick delivery. So much to like about this vendor.
I received my belt today. It is beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for. I had purchased a sterling silver and turquoise 4 piece buckle set specially for your belt. They look incredible together. I am very pleased.
This is not the first time I have ordered from Leather Goods Connection. Each time I have placed an order, I am impressed by the ordering experience, craftsman ship of the products, shipping, and customer service.
The ordering process requires the customer to provide detailed order information, which ensures the end product being perfect.
The products are so well made that they will not need to be replaced any time soon. This stuff is not designed to fail like so many other things in our lives.
I will continue to do business with Leather Goods Connection for many years to come.
Dear Henry, just received my 5th working man's wallet from you. Not because they don't last but because friends and family have seen mine that I purchased a year ago and had to get a real heavy duty wallet. So far my wallet is still breaking in, the stitching is still perfect and the leather still makes that creaking sound. Now two of my brothers, one nephew, and my father in law all have the working man's bifold and enjoy using it daily. Thank you for making great leather items, and look forward to future purchases!
My working man's wallet after one year of Daily abuse. Best wallet I've ever used, it's built like a tank. Many years to go! Please feel free to post my picture on your site!
Regards Chris from NJ
I received the belt you made for me today!
Thank you so much for crafting such a beautiful treasure.
Very best wishes,
This is a great store! I wasn't sure if I needed an extra loop for my belt. They sent it and said it may make the belt look off center. It did. (Loop is removable) The leather is excellent as was everything about my order.
Yes, indeed ... very much pleased.
I outgrew a similar belt to the one you just made for me. Very discouraged ... I fought hard against the middle-age spread, but a man can only do so many crunches.
I have searched *for years* for a suitable replacement. Nothing I purchased was of the same craftsmanship as my favorite belt.
Until I found the LGC.
As soon as I uncoiled the belt from the package I knew I'd found my long sought for replacement.
It's perfect, exactly what I wanted.
So yes ... I immediately ordered two more belts.
I look forward to receiving them.
All the best,
San Francisco, CA
Your belt arrived today. It is precisely what I had hoped for, color an length are perfect. Thank you also for the nice job of attaching the tip. I realize it had been pretty well abused.
I am looking forward to placing another order with you soon.
I received the belts that you sent. As you know this is the 3rd belt that you made for me and I could not be more satisfied with both the product and the service.
I will continue to show and talk to people about your business and hopefully you will get new business from them.
Thanks again !

The wallets arrived today and are nothing short of perfect. Thank you very much again for your great work and craftsmanship. These are my absolute favorite.
Just received my belt. Fit is perfect, finished product is far better than I expected. Thank you. I'll be ordering from you again and I'll pass your information along to my friends.
This is the 5th item I have ordered from you, over a 12 year period. Very satisfied with quality, style, and service. You are appreciated!
I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know I received my order and how pleased with it I am. The custom work on the dog collar to rivet the license directly to it worked out great and was a snap to install. I really liked the extra, small d ring for his tags and the way you implemented it. It may be an extra you consider offering as it's worked out very well. I just started using the wallet today. My initial impressions are positive. It fits my back pocket well and thus far I haven't needed to remove it just to sit comfortably like other wallets I've had. The leather seems to be of high quality as does the stitching and workmanship in general. The card pockets are tight enough on the cards that I'm not worried about them coming loose but loose enough to get them out fairly easily. I can only assume it's going to get better as it breaks in. Going forward, you're going to be my go to for any future leather goods needs. Thanks again for the custom work, professionalism, and ready experience.
Just received the Ranger belt and I couldn't be happier. It came out just the way I wanted and it fits perfectly. THANK YOU!
This is my third order with this company and every time my expectations are exceeded. I tell everyone I know about this company and their goods. I cannot say enough good things. They will have a customer for life.
I just wanted to let you know that I received my second belt today, and I can't begin to express how pleased I am. Both belts fit perfectly, the craftsmanship is superb, and the leather (I ordered one made with bridal leather and the second with harness leather) is just beautiful.
Thanks to everyone involved!
Belts arrived last Friday and they are perfect. Thank you!!!!
The new belt arrived in the mail today. Looks great & fits perfectly. Thank you for the fast/good work! Hoping to do business with you again.
I bought a wallet 5 years ago and filled it with more cards than they said it could fit, It held up perfectly. Then I downsized to one card in each slot only a month ago and it still holds one card snugly after all that abuse. All the seams, zippers, card slots and snaps still work like the day I bought it. Even the eyelet for the chain is intact and I have broken 3 chains connected to it. These are TOP QUALITY.
I received the belt in great condition. Correct size! Albeit a little snug on the middle hole but incentive to drop a little weight. The belt is awesome- lives up to all the other comments regarding the quality of material noted on your website. Your a real craftsman. I have longed for a belt like I had as a young adult and actually this appears to exceed the quality I recall. I had discovered your site about a year ago but always disappointed with products that I received sight unseen so took awhile to make the plunge again and glad I did. I often make the comment that I wish things were made like they were in the past when products represented the concern and effort to be the best possible the product can be ( told that is just nostalgic thinking that things are actually better today) well this product meets or exceeds my wishes so perhaps with enough searching things made today can be as good or better but you must find someone who takes pride as you do in your trade. Thank you and when I have the opportunity I will be referring others to you. In addition will be ordering other leather goods in the future from you. Thank you for a job well done. Bill M
awesome wallet…thanks so much!!!
The belt is exactly what I wanted. It's perfect. Thank you. I will be ordering again in the future. I would like to get a brown belt with the same measurements. I will also recommend you to my friends.
Thank you again. Dan O'Shea
I wanted to write a short note, letting you know the belt was very well received. It arrived today, and I was able to give it to my father this afternoon. He couldn't be more thrilled with the craftsmanship and the details. Thank you so much! I'll be promoting your work whenever I have the opportunity around friends, colleagues and family.
The black Ranger belt you made showed up at my house yesterday. I immediately stripped off the old strap I was using since I wore out my old dress Ranger and slid your new one through all the loops. It is bang on at center hole, just like it should. Thanks so much for the great work, beautiful craftsmanship, quick turn, and refreshingly good communication about the order.
I hope all is well with you and yours down in North Carolina, Sir. Take care and keep up the phenomenal work.
The new custom wallet you made me is nothing less then perfect! Thank you for honoring my request and for making such a great wallet.
So, about 10 years ago I bought a Bianchi garrison belt. I'm not in law enforcement, but I was doing a lot of special events that required carrying lots of gear on my belt and in my pockets and I wanted a sturdy belt. That belt is still fully functional, but it's getting a bit stretched and worn looking and I now have more of a management position and need to "dress for success" more often. A couple of years ago I bought a sad excuse for a belt at a national clothing store in the mall. It was so flimsy I never really felt right wearing it.
A few months ago a Filson catalog arrived in my mailbox selling USA made belts. When I read the reviews they were all along the lines of "I've bought Filson belts for years, but the last one I ordered was thin and cheap. Never again." My wife googled "handmade belts USA" or something like that and LeatherGoods Connection was one of the first sites that came up. (I was all set to order from the first site that came up, but then they wanted me to create a username and password for their site just to place an order I was paying for with PayPal, so that was the end of that.)
So, what about LeatherGoods Connection? I placed my order on Saturday 1/2. On Monday 1/4 I got an email from Bill to say he had finished making my belt and had shipped it. Today, Wednesday 1/6 it arrived. The leather is wonderfully thick and stiff. The craftsmanship is excellent. I am totally satisfied.

Let me start off by saying that I did exhaustive research on Ranger belts and leather processing in general before my purchase.
I was very impressed with Henry answering ALL of my questions and concerns about sizing a Ranger belt that when it was all said and done I ordered TWO…sight unseen. I wanted a custom hole configuration to boot.
I gave the belts a thorough going over when they arrived. My specifications were followed to the letter, perfect fit. Now for the quality. Very nice bridle leather for sure. The four piece buckle sets I received are a good value for the money. Craftsmanship and design: A-1, finishing and stitching is spot on. The buckle leather joint is excellent. I would comfortably buy from Henry again.
Cheers, JJ N.J.
Thank you so very much for the BEAUTIFULLY crafted Ranger belt! The minute I saw it I was reminded of my grandfather. This is the original style, which is not easy to find. I am excited to wear my new belt for many years and will be sure to recommend your craftsmanship to my friends and colleagues.
Blessings for a lovely 2016!
Picked up package today. Box undamaged and belt is everything & more than I expected! You all are true craftsmen. Thanks for help in recovering package. We will certainly tell friends & family about your handmade products. PS. Web site has very helpful info & when u follow directions for sizing there should never be a problem. Many thanks!!

I got the Ponderosa Wallet about 4 years ago and am still in love with it. Solid as a rock. I got the Natural version with the calfskin interior and it has aged to a beautiful. Brown color. Thanks
Good evening Henry. I forgot to mention my first small ponderosa and the workman's wallet are holding up great. I switch them periodically. But I plan on keeping the new one in my pocket all the time. Since the "new thing" is to see how the natural leather evolves.
Y'all made the perfect ranger belt for me. Fits just right. Beautiful leather. Thank you.
I received the belt I had ordered from you Saturday. I couldn't be happier. It is a dress belt with custom features. Henry told me what to put on the order form. He was very thorough and replied to my question quickly. I received the belt within two weeks. The materials and workmanship of the highest quality. No one can compare to your work. I recommend you very often, especially to those who I know will appreciate the best in leather goods.

I had to wait until my birthday to open the belt you made so apologies for the delay in giving you feedback. It is absolutely beautiful and I love it!! The belt exceeded my expectations and fit my existing buckle perfectly. I will be wearing it with pride. Thank you so much for making it and sending it so promptly.
I received the bridle leather Ranger Belt in dark brown, brown stitched, with the #3 Classic belt buckle set. You are a true leather craftsman. I couldn't have dreamed a more perfect Ranger Belt. I don't get a chance to purchase something like this very often so I was hoping the information on your website was true. Well, the information is true and I am very pleased and proud to be the owner of such a nice belt. Thanks, Doug
The only circumstances under which I can see ever needing another belt and wallet is if these are lost or stolen. If that should ever occur, you can count on a return customer. These products exceeded my expectations, and your photographs (although they are decent) do your products NO justice. I've owned wallets and belts which I have paid three times as much for, which were not a third of the quality. I'm replacing a very nice, broken-in, Coach leather wallet which I have loved for years, and it looks sad and frail compared to your working mans wallet. Every single one of my many custom requests was honored, and this is exactly what I wanted. This is craft at its finest. Thank you very much.
Received the belts today and they exceeded my expectations. Great quality and just as good as ones I have paid 2X for. Will be ordering more soon. Thank you.
I never paid much attention to belts before, but the belt I received from you with the Inca design is gorgeous so I am letting you know. It also looks like it will last forever.
Henry, I’ve received the wallet (yesterday) and the shrunken leather is a hide virtually identical to that of a Saks Fifth Avenue wallet carried by my father for many, many years, until his death.
I took it and wore it out, happily. I know he was pleased to see it used, well-used right to oblivion.
Many, many thanks.
Purchased a ranger belt for my significant other. It's for Christmas, so he can't contribute to this review. I can remark on my purchase experience and the quality of what I received. The purchase experience was so easy-peasy. Everything is spelled out in easy to understand verbiage. I was really glad he showed and explained how to measure a belt; since this is a gift, all I had to do measure his favorite belt. There are some things he just cannot do (like progress updates) due to time and labor constraints, BUT....those things are very well noted on his website. It says he will respond to emails; I can't speak to that since I didn't email him. Ordering was exceptionally easy, there were many choices and excellent quality pics to look at to decide exactly what you want for the belt. The belt was shipped out exactly when it was supposed to be (no later than 7 days from order) and I received it via USPS Priority. NOW, the quality is absolutely amazing. The stitching is beautiful, and I had a lot of stitching, the color is exactly what I wanted, the buckle set is perfect, embossing is perfect. I'm just so pleased with this belt. I think I'm going to order myself a women's belt next. And then I'll look at getting a purse!! If you choose to make a purchase here, you will NOT be disappointed!!
Just got the belt for my Son. He thinks it's great. Measured 48" exactly from the buckle to the center hole, and has a 4.5" tongue. The color, and stitching look sharp. Job well done. Thanks.
Belt arrived today. Perfect fit. Love it! Going to order a ranger next.
hello henry the belt delivered today 22/9/2015.it is 100%aok workmanship is out this world thanks Roy from Scotland. belt makes a 64 man 65 in December very happy
again a big thank you Roy
Thanks for the outstanding belt. I can't help but admire the aniline dyed top grain leather with perfect fullness and no imperfection. I definitely recommend others to check your website.
Thank you again for the excellent product and rapid service, the order was well received here in Portugal.
Hope to be making more orders in the future.
PS: Liked both the liberty coin on the belt buckle and the buffalo, lovely surprise and combination.
hello Henry, just received two new wallets,the bridle in light brown and the working mans in dark brown.once again very quick shipment and very handsome wallets.my only problem is that I bought them to give away as gifts! At the last family gathering I had more than a few admiring relatives at my brand new working mans wallet,so your wallets make perfect gifts as well. My working man's is breaking in nicely and I love it,best wallet I've owned.im planning to purchase another one down the road to have as a spare,can't go wrong with your products. pleasure to do business with you! Chris in NJ
A belated thank you for making my ranger belt and attaching my Texas Ranger buckle. The workmanship is excellent and I am very pleased. The work was completely quickly and I was surprised how quickly you made my belt for me. It fits great. Thank you for great customer service and for a wonderful, quality product.
I just received my second belt from you. All I can say is, it's a real work of art. Thanks so much for it. I will wear it with pride. Your belts are truly second to none...
Just a quick note to say I received the wallet yesterday, very impressed with the quality of it, thank you very much, will definitely be buying from you in the future, service was second to none.
Very happy :)
Just got the Ranger belt I ordered and am extremely pleased with it. Looks great, and you can tell its top notch in quality....my compliments to you and your craftsmen for an excellent product well worth the investment.
Hi Henry,just letting you know I just received my brand new working man's wallet.I barely just put my money and cards in it,and I can tell this is going to be my favorite wallet. The light brown color is perfect.the stitching is flawless,and the leather has a terrific feel to it .As a truck driver I've been thru a ton of wallets,this is a heavy duty one for sure.I cannot wait to break it in,and looking forward to many years of use. I just hope mine can look as good as yours does! Thank you for the great service and terrific wallet.
Regards Chris from New Jersey.
Without doubt the finest belt I've ever owned.
Truly excellent craftsmanship. I’ve now purchased my second custom ranger belt from Leather Goods Connection. I love the numerous custom options and the prices are more then fair. I went with dark brown harness leather throughout with matching brown stitching, 3/4 inch hole placement (very cool), and a classic basic brass buckle. It’s perfect. It’s exactly what I wanted. I almost gave up trying to find a high quality classic 1 1/2 inch ranger for western dress. I found this obscure little website and gave them a try. I’ll never look back. These guys are artists. It so cool to still find that in this modern day and age. I highly recommend this company!
Without a doubt the ponderosa-3 wallet you made for me is a work of art. It just feels right in my hand, like you took a mold of my hand and made the leather in the right proportions. The walking lady liberty on the belt lanyard is fantastic, the buffalo side of the nickel facing out is great. When I open this wallet and feel the calfskin leather it is as smooth as glass.
My wife and I went to the 145th Lycoming county fair and I actually had two guys said they loved it, one actually wanted to touch the wallet.
I hope my words convey how impressed I am with this wallet and your work Henry. Thank you again.
I just received my black bridle leather dress belt. If not the best ever then truly one of them as the quality is exceptional. I WILL be ordering more in the near future!
I just received your harness belt in the mail today and I was immediately impressed with the craftsmanship and quality. There is absolutely no comparison between your belts and the standard Levi’s belts from a clothing store. I have told my friends they should look into getting some from you and I look forward to wearing this belt for the foreseeable future.
I live in the topics and so need a quality belt that will not fall to pieces in a few months. LeatherGoodsConnection.com's belts are made from quality leather and last for years. The belts are not cheap, but they are worth every penny. I got one for my brother as present. He love his.
Thank you for cutting this wallet down for me. As It continues to wear in I'm beginning to love it. Hopefully it will last as long as my last wallet. I had it roughly 20 years. I don't like new things needless to say.
Thank you again!
Have a great day!
Henry got the wallet and leather lanyard, all i can say is OUTSTANDING! Beautiful work. I had a hard time at first justifying paying over $100.00 but now that i have it in my hands i feel much better about the price. Thank you very much and i will be back to try more of your products. I will also let the guys i work with at CIVIC CENTER TOW know about your craftsmanship. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! REID R.
Received my belt. It was exactly how I imagined it. Quality thick real leather with tooling and good color. Fits perfect. My
3/4" spacing between holes was also something I wanted in a belt but could only come with your custom specifications. I put my buckle on it and I doubt I'll have to worry about it for another decade... or two.
The above order was well received, thank you for the black ponderosa wallet, its simply lovely..
PS: Should be placing a similar ponderosa order but this time for my wife, will keep you posted.
Julio Guerreiro (Portugal)
I received my wallet a day or so ago. I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am. I've had a little experience with leather and I must say that the quality of the skin is outstanding. The workmanship equally so. Even my wife (who is known as the toughest critic in town), is mighty impressed. Thanks for the speedy delivery and the best wallet I've ever seen. I'll periodically drop you a line to let you know how it makes out in service.
The wallet is beautiful. Exceeded my expectations!! I can't wait to continue to break it in and have it acquire a nice patina!!
Henry, wow, what great work. I love this belt and it is just as ordered!!!! Will be ordering more soon.Thanks and Gig'em
Mark & Marsha
The belt fits perfect. Looks good. I am very happy and pleased with the belt. We will do business again. Thanks!
The merchant was very responsive when I reached out to him regarding a change in my order. I would not hesitate to order from again as the product is very well made in the US which you don't see very often.
Dear Mr. Henry,
Just to inform you that the wallet was well received in Portugal, thank you.
PS: My wife picked it up today from the Post Office and sent me some photos, I am presently abroad, and when I go back to Portugal I will have the pleasure of seeing it.
I am so pleased with how Cal’s belt looks. He wears it often and I
admire the craftsmanship.
Henry, my belts arrived today. Beautiful work!!
USPS just delivered the 7 strand braided belt Larry made for me, and he made it very quickly I may add. Just like Bill’s ranger belts, this one is also a beauty to behold. It’s substantial yet flexible, and I know it will look even better with age. It continues to be a pleasure to deal with a team that delivers such high quality products. Thank you for your efforts. I think it may be time to order another one in black.
Received my belt order Friday, I appreciate the craftsmanship, quality and fast turn time.
I will probably order a few more from your website.
I have just returned home from a 6 week business trip to find the custom belt I had ordered from you, waiting for me on my dresser.
Honestly, at first I was a bit nervous to try it on fearing that it might not fit right. However, I soon realized that I had nothing to fear, this belt is by far the best fit belt I have ever put on. It just feels good. The quality of the leather and craftsmanship of this belt are truly superb. I think you might have a customer for life.
Thanks again for the great belt.
My belt arrived a few days ago and I couldn't be more delighted. It is a superb example of fine materials melded with fine craftsmanship at a fair price.
Thx. I received it. It is a very nice, very high quality belt. So much nicer than what I find in the stores here. I am very pleased with it!
I received my belt and belt key ring holders. First off, I'd like to extend my appreciation for making such fine products, and getting to me so quickly. In my experience, the quality to price ratio is second to none. I am very happy with purchase! My family members already have given me numerous compliments. I'll be sure to send them your way.
We just returned home this afternoon and I must say, the belt is gorgeous!!!
Wish I had found you years ago. Your workmanship far exceeds that of the fellow in New Mexico
who replaced the original belt which goes back to the 1940s I believe.
Thank You very much and I am happy to recommend you to those that might be interested.
My apologies for this late email but I just wanted to tell you that I received the above order and was once again delighted by the quality and craftsmanship of my latest purchase. You and your staff or crew do fabulous work and I hope the New Year is the best it can be for you and the LeatherGoods Connection team.
My wife gave me an expensive alligator belt for Christmas. Using all the tact I could muster, I convinced her to return it & order my third Ranger Belt from you. I am forwarding your web site to her. Anything she orders from you will be better!
Excellent transaction. This is the second time I have bought belts from this company. Great product! Great customer service! Great value. Thank you!
The belt was a big hit -- this was the 52" with #5 buckle that you made last Friday. And it fit just fine!!!
Happy New Year to you and thanks again for your excellent service.
Picked the belt up from the post office today and its perfect! Exactly what I expected in looks and fit. Great job with the detailed ordering instructions and craftsmanship.
Henry, I have received the already Ponderosa Wallet and would like to Thank you for the fast shipping and excellent work on the wallet. I will for sure be a repeat customer. Have a nice weekend.
I've never provided feedback like this on any item I've ever purchased but I just couldn't let this pass without comment.
I recently went to Fort Worth, TX for business and saw ranger belts there for the first time. I researched their back story and was instantly hooked by their look and history. The only thing was, every belt I saw there was made in China. There was no way I was going to buy a ranger belt that was not made in America.
So when I got home I searched the internet and luckily found your site. The experience was great, I was able to build a belt the exact way I wanted it. The type of leather, the color, the pattern, even the stitching. The sizing guide worked perfectly, I just measured one of my old belts.
My custom belt was just delivered and I couldn't be happier. It looks unbelievable, the workmanship is impeccable, the leather is gorgeous and the buckle set looks great.
Thanks for your skill in building me this treasured item, I will wear it proudly.
And I will certainly be purchasing another belt from you shortly.
On a side note, my parents retired and moved to Hendersonville 25 years ago. Mom passed and Dad moved back but we have fond memories of that beautiful part of the country.
Thanks again for being a skilled craftsman.
I had forgotten to order the belt you just shipped to me … and I figured it would not get here in time for a Christmas gift.
THANK YOU for your speedy work and delivery, I just got it today.
My son is growing … needs this new belt … and I won’t let my sons have any other belts!(I can’t buy everything USA made or hand-made by craftsmen, but I try … and your belts are cheaper in the long run … they last and last and last.)
Thanks again, and if Christmas is your holiday, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Thank you for your time. The quality is true craftsmanship. I had purchased an old glory buckle from Northwestern Brass works and once I saw the artistry, I decided I needed a belt of equal beauty. You did not disappoint. They look like they were made for each other. You have made this retired soldier very happy.
Greetings, Mr. LeClaire: Today I received the wonderfully hand-crafted belt! Your personal craftsmanship and price sets the "bar of quality" far above any other belt I've ever owned- or have ever seen in my travels and aspirations of having the most unique and artistic belt that truly declares my character. Truly, an amazing lost art of design and quality that bacons to any viewer that you really care to promote traditional value and quality. I'll be sending my other belt and buckle set from Nevada. With very best regards to your continued success. Respectfully, Larry
I received it today. The quality and workmanship was top notch. And the sizing was perfect. Thank you. I am sure that I will be a repeat customer.
I received my belt yesterday, the third one you have made for me. Once again, you have exceeded all expectations. The fit is perfect, the hardware is solid, but most importantly, the workmanship and attention to detail is far superior to anything you can purchase in any store. I can't thank you enough.
I couldn't be more pleased about ordering belts from this source. The quality is superb and the delivery very prompt. These belts are far beyond the quality of anything you'd find in a high end department store. Highly recommend.
I got the belt yesterday and as usual it is a beautiful belt. The workmanship is superb as have been all the belts I have purchased from you. I am sorry for being in a hurry and not properly filling out the order form. Thanks for making those changes. Now I have a belt I can wear on the middle hole instead of the first one as I have been doing with the identical one that you just made for me. It has been a pleasure doing business with you.
Thanks. You guys are THE BEST. I have a black ranger belt, and a Tan ranger belt, there is absolutely NOTHING like your product and craftsmanship anywhere.
Thank you again.
Just received my new leather belt. You are true Leather Smiths!
The belt is a true work of ART and work of LOVE!!
It could not be better.
This is not the last belt I will order!! Thank you.
Thanks again Henry! My third belt arrived today. Little brother claimed the second one! First class quality and craftsmanship yet again. Looking forward to Lucy's second dog collar as well. She's going to love it too!
Got the belts.
As before, they are spectacular.
What a great value!
This is the second time I've ordered and I'll be back for more and spreading the good word about you.
HENRY! The belt is SOOOOOOOOOOOO cool!!!!! Works perfectly. I don’t know if you even wondered what function it will play, but it is to improve on Henry Ford’s Model T design.
All these Brass Era (pri-1915) cars use belts. The most common is like on my 1908 Buick to hold the top up and straight. Ford tried to do away with the belt that stretched from the top to the front of the car. His design did work – that is until usage when the top would sag a little, making the top not look smooth down the sides. I attached a small black handle to the bar over the windshield. The belt goes through the handle and then around the second bar. Pulling in the belt brings the second bar closer to the first and stretches the entire top. The improvement looks is great.
While my Buick has rather short belt that attach to a brass rod that is attached to the front of the car, many of the older cars have long belts that extend from the corner of the tops to the front of the radiator of the car.
Thanks again for a super job and done with speed. Regards, Nevy
Hello Bill and Henry,
i received my ranger belt today. It looks marvelous. Many thanks for your work. I will tell about your craftsmanship/workmanship.
With best regards from Germany
Received the belt today. Fantastic workmanship and exceptional material quality.
I was in the leather belt manufacture business 40 years ago and I am impressed.
Thanks for the beautiful product and quick response to my email.
Package came today, the UK Post Office is pretty good. They have never lost ( me ) anything yet, fingers crossed.
The wallet is incredible. I do like the longer lanyard (than my last one)
It is a birthday present for my son, love what you do. Can't remember how I found you but just happy that I have.
I am old enough to remember anything made in the USA is a beautiful thing. Your wallets are proof that is still the case.
Hello Bill and Henry:
My belt just arrived in the mail. I thought it looked beautiful on your website, but it is even more awesome than that. Your craftsmanship/workmanship, the quality of the leather, and finishing are beyond comparison. And, what makes the experience of dealing with you even better is the fact that order fulfillment is outrageously fast. I will be recommending you every chance I get.
Thank you so much,
Received the belt. Stunning workmanship and quality leather! Beautiful to the eye, sweet to handle, fragrant to sniff and enlivening to the spirit.
Many thanks for the years of enjoyment and service this will provide.
Received the order. Thank you!! Love the belt and the wallet. I'll be ordering another belt soon.
I received the belt yesterday and wanted to express my unconditional pleasure with the results. What a beautiful belt! The tooling and resulting dye makes for a rich appearance and the high quality leather and brass buckle combine to make a fantastic product. Thank you so much for another great belt. I will wear it with pride.
You made a belt for me a couple of years ago and I would like to let you know that it quickly became my go-to belt. Despite near daily wearing it has held up and still looks great. Your workmanship and quality is much appreciated. Can’t wait to see this one!
The wallet is beautiful, expert craftsmanship. Arrived yesterday, thank you very much.
Got my new wallet today, thank for such a pleasant transaction!!!
H.G.G. (El Astillero Cantabria Spain)
Just wanted to thank you for the ranger belt you made for me. It is absolutely gorgeous. The quality of the workmanship is flawless, the material used is high quality (not cheap material). I will be ordering another belt shortly. For those people looking for a quality belt, this is the place to get it.
Thanks again Henry.
After owning the Traveler wallet for a few years, I have decided to order the little Ponderosa with the zip pouch. The Traveler has served me very well and could probably last a lifetime, but I want something a little smaller and more secure. I can't wait to get the new wallet and get it worn in! Thank you sir, for making the best wallets that are well worth the price!
Mr Bill LaClaire
You probably hear this kind of comments from time to time, I'm really impressed with the craftsmanship and quality offered in your product. Pricey but worth every penny. I will make it a point to recommend you to my friends who appreciate fine craftsmanship in leather products. Nothing like having s fine piece of leather to hold your pants up.
I'll be back for more......
I received my belt. Fantastic. A perfect fit, and I mean absolutely perfect. I'm pretty fussy about craftsmanship but found your work to be first rate. In fact the only think that I could see anywhere that you could even begin to criticize is that the Chicago screws were not clocked at 12:00. Aw gee! Seriously, great work -- and remarkably fast. Thanks very much. I love it.
Hello Henry & Bill,
I received my Ranger belt last Friday.It is wonderful, perfect!Great work and so good job. Thank you so much again and keep anyway your site on my favorites in case I would order one more later.
Have a great Week
Giovanni (Villars-sur-Glâne Switzerland)
Mr. Henry H.
This is a note to especially thank you for sending to us
our order for a Harness Leather Belt. I have received the
belt and it is exactly as ordered. The belt is the excellent
craftsmanship which I was expecting. It is the best quality
product and the exact size as ordered. Thank you very much
for making sure that it would be delivered. I certainly appreciate
your interest in having made this superior product.
R. Steven C.
Thank you for the great looking belt! I received it today and it fits perfect.
Tell everyone "great job!"
I got the wallet and it is perfect and the Quality is outstanding thank you Henry.
I ordered my “ custom ranger belt ” from your easy to follow online form giving all the choices available. I completed the form on Tuesday afternoon. By Saturday I was wearing it.
I want you to know it exceeded my expectations….It’s perfect.
My new belt was made by a fine and conscientious craftsman, who advised me of several options that would make my purchase prettier and more functional at no added cost. The belts he makes are not cheap, but not only are they made from fine material; they are made with great care and attention to detail. I would recommend Bill LeClaire's work to anyone.
I don’t believe I have thanked you for the exquisite job you did on my new belt. I was waiting for an occasion to wear it, and was pleased that some friends we visited tonight noticed it right away and made all the right oohs and ahhs. Of course, they don’t know the half of it. It’s going to take a while to wear it in and let it soften up, but I already know it’s a great looker—and it fits. Even better, I’m pleased to have met you, at least by email, and to know I found someone who appreciates and practices great craftsmanship. I look forward to being in touch again and won’t hesitate to recommend your work to anyone who asks.
With my highest regards,
Picked up the belt and can't tell you how happy I'm with it. Everything about it is perfect. In our small town if the ups driver doesn't have anything going my way he'll just leave it at the post office he knows I have to go in to pick up the mail
Local guy – Charles (chuck) came in to get something repaired and told me how satisfied he is with your wallet.
I referred him a couple years ago now, and the wallet looks great!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PROMPT ATTENTION TO MY REQUEST, I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR
QUALITY SERVICE, AND THAT IS THE REASON THAT I CONTINUE TO PURCHASE BELTS, ETC.
FROM YOU. YOUR SERVICE ACTUALLY MAKES YOUR BELTS VERY AFFORABLE, NOT TO
MENTION THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT.
We received the wonderful ranger belt I ordered for my dad. The workmanship was outstanding, it was exactly as my dad wanted it, and it arrived so quickly! I will be ordering another belt and a wallet very soon! Also, to those of you that are looking for a big and tall man's belt, you won't find any others out there that can meet this quality and be made to perfectly fit based on your exact specifications.
Thanks again Bill,
Ordered my first dog collar from LGC and it arrived the other day. Beautiful workmanship and you must see these in person to appreciate the quality. Henry worked with me to create a smaller collar for my smaller dogs. The collars are bridle leather and made with same attention to detail as the belts. The edges are smooth and have a round edge which doesn't dig into your dog's neck. Lucy loves her new collar!
Thanks again Henry!
I got my bridle leather belt and I love it. It looks like it'll last a lifetime. I couldn't be happier with the quality and craftsmanship.
Another satisfied customer,
Hi Henry i just got my wallet and i am more than satisfice
It is gorgeus
I really love it
It is just what i was looking for
It took 14 days to get into Spain and shipping has work very good with not Custom
Payments or xtra spends
AND Keep in touch
I recently ordered an extra large (67") harness leather 2" belt, with double prong buckle. I received the belt in just a few days. It looks like it was made to last. I am very happy with the belt. I would highly recommend LeatherGoodsConnection.com to anyone wanting a quality made belt.
Henry: The belts arrived today. They look good and fit perfectly. Thank you. John
thank you for the beautiful belt which has safely arrived. i look forward to wearing it a lot.
We wanted to let you know how satisfied we were with the 2 belts we ordered. They are not for people but to use to strap down a picnic basket on the carrier of our 1973 MG Midget. We were not disappointed, they are beautiful. The workmanship is A+ and the color is outstanding. Will recommend you to everyone who wants to know where we got them, and they will ask!
John & Rowena
This is my second belt and I just want to thank you again for such first class workmanship. As you mentioned, internet pictures do not do these belts justice. My belt is very high quality in fit and finish. Service after the sale is spectacular as well. I mentioned this is my second belt. I ordered my first belt about four years ago and recently I lost a chicago screw. In my order for a new belt, I mentioned this and my new belt came with several spares so I could put my first belt back to use. I really enjoy the leather work belt with the extra layer sewn in. It will provide many years of service. The two belts I have, with the quality materials and level of workmanship simply cannot be found at these prices. Thank you so much Henry!
Sincerely a very satisfied customer,
Je viens de m’apercevoir que j’avais oublié de donner mes commentaires, ce que je souhaitais faire.
Je vous remercie tout d’abord pour la qualité de nos échanges, la rapidité et l’attention que vous avez bien voulu me consacrer.
J’apprécie toujours autant la qualité et l’originalité de vos produits qui font l’admiration de mes amis par leur qualité de fabrication.
I wanted to let you know that I received my ranger belt on Friday and I was not disappointed. The workmanship and quality are fantastic and are far and above the other ranger belts I have seen sold in stores and at specialty shops. I wore a ranger belt about 10 years ago and wore it out because it was the only belt I wore and since then, I haven't been able to find a belt that compared to the one I had. The belt you made far exceeds the old one I wore and I am proud to wear this belt every day; I get compliments every time someone sees it.
Thanks again for doing such a great job. I plan to order another belt in the near future.
We bought a couple belts from you many years ago and they are still holding up nicely. One was just passed down to our 2nd boy (and there are 2 more after him) I have no doubt it will hold up, given it doesn't face other surprising 'boy circumstances'. Thanks for your quality work...hard to find these days. Blessings to you, Melissa
Received the belt...wow! I expected a quality belt, but this is great. Everything about the belt is perfect. I will be back.
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for the quality and craftsmanship of your wallets. This wallet is absolutely beautiful, and very utilitarian. It will fill every one of my needs and look good doing for many years to come. Here is a picture of my left, rear pocket carrying preference.
Very satisfied customer,
The belt strap that my wife Nancy ordered arrived today and it is perfect. It is even more substantial than I expected, and beautifully crafted. I will wear it with pleasure for many years. Thanks again, and if I need more leather goods handmade I will certainly order from Leather Goods Connection!
I have one of your "working men's wallets" that I got in 2006. So it's 8 years old, and I love it. Similar to the picture of yours, the leather is getting a bit scuffed on the corners and the finish is wearing off. So after such a good innings, I thought I would order a new one. I read your comments about the buffalo calf wallets being your own next choice.
One of the things I like about this working mens wallet I have now is how strong it is. The stitching just doesn't wear out at all... I also own two belts that you made me. Both of them are extra thick leather with embossing, and they are just indestructible. I love them and they are my most frequently worn belts, and also the best looking in my closet. They are amazing. If you'd like me to post a testimonial and a picture of how your belts look after 8 years of regular use, let me know! It's just amazing how good your work is.
In fact I like your work so much I might order another belt when I order the wallet. Not because I need another belt given how well they last, but because I like them so much!
All the best,
Hello There at LeatherGoods Connection!!!
This is Tom Rados from Pennsylvania. I have just received my Ponderosa Trucker Wallet and it is nothing short of brilliant. It is the 10-3A model and it is the most visually appealing chain wallet I have ever donned. From the highly polished chain, to the supple hand stained leather, to the 1930s replica coin snaps, to the durable stitching; this wallet delivers the goods. A very roomy interior with multiple pockets ensures that all your monetary possibles are stowed neatly and securely. Quite simply said, "A job well done!" Thank you very much for a wonderful product made in the USA!!!
With High Regard,
Hi Bill, I received the belt and it look and fits perfectly. Looks like it should last 30 years. Thank you! Regards, Lonny J
Bill, Just received my new ranger belt. It is the best looking belt I have ever bought. Thanks......Jim.
Received my belt today . It is for my "71" B-Day (4-5-43). Perfect fit, excellent quality and smart looking.
I love items made in the USA.
Bill my belt arrived today and it like the other is spectacular!! Thanks for the great work and fast turn around.
I just got the belt, and I love it! Very high quality leather and workmanship, as well as incredible customer service. The belt was shipped within 48 hours after I had ordered it.
The guys in the office have been admiring it and checking out your website. I’m sure you will probably get some orders from them, and I know I will be ordering more belts from you in the future.
You can’t get this quality of belt anywhere else for twice the price.
Thanks again from a new loyal customer.
I just received my Wallet and I love it. It is exactly as advertised and a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Thank you for the prompt service. I will tell everyone I know about LeatherGoodsConnection and hope to buy many more products in the future.
I just wanted to write and let you know how pleased I am with my wallet. It’s broken in beautifully and it’s easily the best wallet I’ve ever owned. The leather has even developed a nice pull up effect, which I tried to show semi-successfully in the second photo. I love this wallet it shows no signs of giving up on me; every seam is as tight as the day I received it. Thanks for your outstanding work.
Just received the belt. Thank you for making such a finely crafted product.
Best to you,
Hello, just to let you know the belts have arrived and are superb.
Many thanks, Sarah
I just received my belt last night and wanted to let you know it fits perfectly! I showed the belt to my wife and she said: "your expensive dress belts almost look cheap next to that belt, you should get a black one too!" That's quite a compliment coming from her, and yes the belt is beautiful and the color is exactly as expected and I can see some gain in there as well.
She is looking at your handbags now and I know the next bag I buy for her will be one of yours as well.
I went back to your site to look at black belts and was thinking of getting the exact same belt in black with wheat stitching. Then I started looking at your ranger belts and am now quite intrigued by them. I've never owned or worn a Ranger belt before, but they sure look cool.
Belt looks great, thanks. Ill be ordering another soon
I just received my bridle wallet with horsehide interior and matching card case, and want to thank you for your amazing work.
They are both incredible pieces of artisanship and worth far more than you charge.
Please stay in business…I’ll never buy leather goods from anyone else.
I just heard from my friend Greg that he received your package in the mail yesterday.
He is speechless about the quality of your work and obviously appreciative of receiving such a rare gift.
Thank you so much.
Received the wallet today. VERY pleased with it!
Wow..! Great product, and the belt fit perfectly. Thank you for preserving quality, made in USA, leather goods. I will be ordering a wallet as soon as my meager budget allows. LOL
I must say, the last belt I had was also quality made.. lasted for over 30 years.. so, this one will certainly outlast me...
I received my belt today. I just finished putting my buckle set on it and it looks outstanding and fits perfect! I can't thank you enough. Next I need to order a black one. I will be repeat business!
Thank you again,
Got the belt. Have to say, it is an excellent replacement for my old one. Perfect fit.
Bill thanks your repair is fantastic, and the new belts are even more fantastic!!.
I will remember you if I need a gift or check with you for other leather products. Take care.
THANKS BILL . I received the Ranger Belt a few minutes ago . It is beautiful.THANKS AGAIN
Rarely in life, particularly in this day and age, does an experience exceed all expectations. LeatherGoodsConnnection.com has done that by a wide measure with the experience in have recently had with them. I purchased four ranger belts for myself (wearing one right now.of course) and five others as gifts for family and friends. You should have seen their eyes light up when the gift recipients opened the presents. I am not sufficiently articulate to express how pleased I am. From the helpfulness and accuracy of the web site to the quality of the materials, to the quality of the workmanship, to the responsiveness to the order to the follow-up from Bill, everything first class. I will definitely be making further purchases and honestly speaking each day as I ready for the office I get excited about wearing the belts. Harvard MBA students, if you want a case study on how to make a business successful, here you are. To.say I am a fan and a loyal customer is the under
statement of the year. Forgive any typos...big fingers, small keys and even smaller font.
I received the wallet a few days ago.
Wow...I just wanted to tell you how awesome I think this wallet is!
It is even better than I imagined. I told my wife that it's like a piece of art.
Just an interesting piece of background...I have always "gotten" by with lower priced wallets.
I finally thought, this year I am going to make an investment and buy a wallet that I can be proud of taking out of my pocket...and this is it (and at a price point that doesn't break my 'wallet')!
What I like most about it is the uniqueness of the style, and the quality of the craftsmanship.
Also, I like the fact that the natural oak will break in and change over time based on my usage, which makes it even more unique to me.
It truly looks like an extremely expensive item.
I was going to purchase the key case / holder when buying the wallet, but decided to hold off until seeing the wallet.
However, now I wish I had went ahead and bought the holder...maybe next time.
I have been impressed by your responsiveness, speed of filling the order, and quality of the product.
I will definately recommend you / your website to my friends.
GREAT QUALITY AT A REASONABLE PRICE. A REAL BARGAIN VS THE WILDLY OVERPRICED MAJOR 'BRAND' OFFERINGS.
Received my quality, awesome, and made in the USA belt today! Love it! Thank you
I received the belt. It is awesome and exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you!!!
My daughter may have already e-mailed you, but I want you to be sure you know that her belt arrived. Thank you for getting it done and in the mail so quickly. It's beautiful! Now we know where to go whenever we need a new belt.
All the best in the new year!
Luckily I found Leather Goods Connection because I wanted to buy my husband a quality USA made leather wallet to replace his old one. He likes it a lot. We will probably head back to the website for some more goodies.
I purchased a black Ponderosa chain wallet and two bridle leather belts from you several years ago. All are in nearly new condition! Wallet and black belt are worn with jeans daily. Virtually no wear. The wallet has gotten shinier and the belts have developed a nice patina. The wallet hasn't even popped a stitch. Best wallet and belt purchase I've ever made!
You've updated your site since I made my purchase. Very nice autos. I restored an early (#2052) '63 Corvette roadster in the late '70s. 300hp 327. 4-spd, power brakes, power steering, power windows, AM-FM. Car was Ermine White with black interior. Must have been ordered by someone special as Ermine White wasn't a stock offering for '63. Custom paint code on the VIN tag took some work to track down and verify. Sold the finished car to pay for dental school. Some days I wish I still had it instead of the diploma!
Anyway, I just wanted give you a little feed back on how your products are holding up. Thanks for taking the time to do things right.
I got the belt I ordered, it fits perfectly and is just the color and quality I was hoping for, and I got it before Christmas. It was great doing business with you.
We have been away for a week on holiday but when we returned the belts had arrived. They are works of functional art! I am sure my sons will enjoy them
Thank you and have a very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year
I received the wallet I ordered, just wanted to let you know I really like it and I am glad I came across your site.
Merry Christmas !
Just wanted to thank Henry and
Leathergoodsconnetions.com for producing a
well crafted and valued wallet. I purchased a calf
skinned wallet and asked if I could get a divider
put into it, upon speaking with Henry he did not
want to because of the fold but he did. It took
about a month and has relaxed and is folding
much better. I liked the wallet so much I
purchased one for my son. Thanks for taking
pride and creating a quality product!
I received the belt, and it looks perfect!
Thank you so much for the great work and quick turnaround. I can't wait to give it to my dad for Christmas!
Beautiful!!!!!!!! My son is going to treasure this gift -- we are so impressed with your work -- thank you so much!!!!!!!!
Got the belt yesterday. I am amazed at how quick that was.
My father ordered a work belt from you back in January, 2009. He is a plumber, and his belts see some heavy use. When my last belt broke I saw -- to my exasperation -- that aside from a thin veneer on the outside it appeared to be made of thin layers of leather scrap. Whatever it was, it had the durability of cardboard. I was determined to get a high quality belt this time, and I remembered my father's work belt and how he raves about how much he likes it.
I asked my father if I could see his work belt (the one that he ordered from you back in '09). It almost looks new. It isn't stretched, curled, torn, or ratty looking like his other work belts were after years of daily use.
So, I know I will enjoy wearing this. From both me and my father - thanks!!!
Received. Outstanding. Period!
Wonderful attention to detail. Perfect fit. Beautiful craftsmanship. Look for my future order of a companion belt in black.
I received the belt today. It is the most stunning belt I have ever seen. It is well beyond my expectations. I was telling my wife just the other day that I seem to be developing a "Belt Fetish." I have a number of them. However, none of them can hold a candle to the fine leather craft you have done. While I don't usually spend this kind of money on a belt, the old saying "you get what you pay for" really is true.
I will try to figure out how to place some very positive feedback on your website.
I received my wallet and I like it very much. It looks good, it feels good in my hands, and it smells wonderful. I am thrilled to have it. Thank you very much.
I got the wallet today. It's exceptional! Your craftsmanship is wonderful. Thank you.
I received my custom made Ranger Belt today. I must say I have never owned such a high quality belt. The workmanship is outstanding. I could not be happier. I own a number of (what I considered to be) quality belts. None of them can hold a candle to this one. I will wear it with pride!
Good Afternoon Henry:
My new leather “hipster” wallet arrived in the mail yesterday just in the nick of time. My old wallet was literally coming apart at the seams. My new wallet looks, feels and smells fantastic!!!
Please let me take this opportunity to compliment you on your fine workmanship and the excellent quality of the hide you used for my wallet. I’m sure I’ll get many years of service out of this excellent billfold that carries all my credit cards, loyalty cards and yes, even a bit of cash.
I spent a very long time looking for a new “hipster” style wallet (both in person and online) with very little luck until I stumbled across your website (www.LeatherGoodsConnection.com). I’ll be sure to order from you again once I decide which belt best fits my needs (i.e. holds my pants up and looks good doing it).
In the meantime, I’m going to tell all my friends and family about your company and the great leather products you make.
Keep up the good work and “keep your stick on the ice, eh”!!
I recently received a belt (1 1/2 inch Construction work Belt) you made that was purchased for me by my wife. I have never seen such a WELL MADE belt!! The leather is of the best quality and the workmanship is out of this world. I have a few belts and this one is now my "go to" belt for any occasion. Please keep my measurement on file, as I will definitely order again from you in the future. Again, thanks for making such a quality product.
Received yesterday--very fast to Israel--12 days from shipping!
Beautiful work--very pleased. You lived up to your solid reputation!
Israel might be your next big market!
Love the belt...instructions were easy to follow on how to measure for length...very quick turn around from order to shipment...great quality work...keep up the great work
Bill your belt arrived yesterday and it is everything you advertise and more. The craftsmanship is outstanding and the leather is truly the best quality. This is a belt I will be proud to ware and to refer my friends to you as well. I will be back for more belts after the first of the year and when you are no longer backed up on ladies leather bags please let me know as I would like to order a bag for my wife.
Thanks for the great belt and the fast delivery as well.
Thank you for doing such an excellent job making this belt. There is not a
store or shop anywhere near here that could produce such a fine belt. I'm
very proud of the belt and wear it daily.
I received the custom Belt you made for me yesterday and It is stunningly beautiful. I want to thank you for your patience with my requests and for your fine craftsmanship and usage of top shelf components. This excellent piece of goods will probably last me the rest of my life.
A Loyal Customer,
Hi Henry, the belt arrived safe and sound. The quality of your workmanship is excellent and I won't hesitate to recommend you to my friends. Thanks, maurice
The belt I purchased a year or so ago is great. Thank you for making quality products. I will continue to recommend this company and purchase your products.
The last belt I ordered a few months ago, my father swiped off me, so I'm having to order another one! Thanks for making such a great product for a reasonable price.
I got it today, thank you! excellent craftsmanship!!!!! fantastic customer service!!!!!
Dear Mr. LeClaire,
Please accept my late apologies for not acknowledging receipt of my ranger belt. I received it one or two days later and was once again delighted with the quality of craftsmanship, design and high quality material. I think it looks terrific and have received numerous compliments on it. Thank you and your staff for such dependable high quality products.
The key case I ordered from you came this morning and I am delighted! It's all I hoped it would be and better! You used a good quality leather that should last a lifetime and the hangers won't be letting go of my keys to spread them far and wide!
Thank you very much!
Received my ranger belt yesterday and couldn't be more pleased, finest quality workmanship and materials and a great value. My dog Buzz looks sharp in his new collar,too. Thanks for being a shining example for American small businesses.
I've finally retrieved my last two belts from my mother's, and am again pleased. The woven belt is excellent and the ranger belt received first is a work of art--my compliments to the artist. Thanks for making us such fine products in this day of cheap mass production.
I've had my seven braid belt for about six months now. It is the finest quality belt I have ever owned. The materials and workmanship are superior to any other belt in the marketplace. Hint to my wife, I need a new wallet and would like a dress belt for Christmas
This is my second time purchasing belts from LeatherGoodsConnection.com after seeing the high quality of the first belts I bought from them. You could immediately tell the difference in the leather compared to majority of belts bought in department stores with leather that splits in pieces after a time; I can boldly predict that the belts from this time will last a lifetime.I also love the variety of options when choosing the belt you want made, and they are made and shipped lightning quick. The site might look ancient compared to web 2.0 and anything post that but it is still navigable and does the job. Just read the instructions on measuring your belt out and you will be golden for your purchase.
As far as price goes I had been looking for a new long wallet, but everything else was out of my price range. Henry provides a product that matches the quality of more expensive long wallets with more customization at a better price.
In particular, I wanted a Ponderosa long wallet that did not have an option for an applique customization. I e-mailed Henry asking about it, and he not only got back to me within 24 hours, but he also had no problem with this customization.
I live in Canada so I didn't expect to receive the products right away, but both times I ordered from Leather Goods Connection, my packages arrived in 7 business days from the time of shipping.
I have never been absolutely ecstatic about a purchase I have made online. I have every confidence in Leather Goods Connection to deliver on what they promised, on time, while providing phenomenal customer service.
I received the wallet!!!!!
WOW!! GREAT JOB!!
Thank you so much!!
I know you've got to hear this a lot but ... I received my belt today and am very happy with it. I didn't really didn't think you could turn this kind of quality that quickly. I'll certainly be doing business with you in the future.
I got my boyfriend a wallet from this website and it is even better than I expected. The quality is amazing and you really can't beat the price! I got his name imprinted on the inside of the wallet and it looks perfect!
A really nice, handmade-to-order, and Made-in-the-USA product. And fast turnaround. I am very pleased.
This is the second belt I have purchased here and there were no surprises. The buckle, the leather and the workmanship are all first class.
I will be placing more orders since they offer other items, such as wallets, at very competitive prices and the craftsmanship is excellent.
I should add that questions are answered promptly and clearly.
It's a pleasure to do business with such competent, down to earth people.
Received the belt yesterday. You managed fitting the off-sized buckle perfectly. Many thanks for your workmanship. Yes, I was hoping that the tan color with bring out the coral inlay pieces in the buckle, it worked out nicely.
My belt arrived in the mail today and it is just perfect. I used to have a braided belt of this type years ago (and several waist sizes ago). When I saw that you make these, I knew I wanted one. The quality is, of course, excellent. But I’m also impressed by the speed of delivery – especially since I know that your belts are all made to order.
I received the belt yesterday. Thank you very much, it's exactly what I wanted. I love it!
I have purchased a leather belt and I very pleased with it. The quality of leather and craftsmanship is excellent; the brass buckle (#4) is very sturdy and well proportioned. My queries via email were answered promptly and clearly.
What more can I say? Excellent experience. I will return for other items for sure. I highly recommend this store without hesitation.
I just recieved your belt for my fiance and it is truly remarkable. Thank you for being so accomodating and embossing the inside for us. It will be a heirloom for years to come.
I just wanted you to know I'm very happy with the belt you made for me. It's the best belt I've ever had. I've already told a friend about your services.
Thank you, Henry! Very good quality belt, exactly what I was looking for.
Quick note to let you know how pleased I was with my ranger belt. Thank you...
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your products. I bought a wallet from you in January, and have since bought a belt, a wallet for my lady, and today another belt for a friend of mine. The quality is outstanding; I am sure everything will hold up for a long time. I also appreciate that there are no logos/branding anywhere. It's just solid, quality, gear, with no gimmicks. I like it so much, I find myself trying to practically find excuses to get something else from you. I have and will continue to recommend you to those I know. Thank you.
Ive had my calfskin wallet for about 4 years now, and its my best friend! I sit on it, I toss it around, I lose it on occasion, and its exactly as it was when I received it. Maybe a little darker in color :] Just wanted to comment and confirm that your product is indeed excellent.
yesterday I returned from a long trip through Germany and what did I find returning home: Your great belts! They are totally awesome and I absolutely love them already. You are such a great artisan with what you are doing, it's unbelievable how you can offer such totally high end quality for such a price. I will kick out another order for my girlfriend in a couple of days because she instantly fell in love with the ranger belt.
Thank's a lot and talk to you soon.

Bought the Truckers West Coast Wallet, this is the 2nd one I've bought, this was a gift and I've had mine for approx 3 years and its the best wallet on the market.. The leather is top quality and the chain is strong, if you're looking for a wallet ( mens or woman's) look no further, seriously.
Comments I received today include "stunning.........gorgeous" - I thought they were speaking of me, until they said ........ "No! Where'd you get that belt?" Alas, I replied - 'Leather Goods Connection'.
Hey Bill, Just a little update. I’ve had my belt for a little over a year now and it still looks great. I wear it to work every day. Thanks for the great workmanship. Jeff Oatey
The belt is perfect and of very high quality. Should last me for years.
The wallet arrived today. As usual quality is top notch! Delivery was lightening speed!
Westlake Village CA
Just a quick note to say thanks. The belt arrived this week and is perfect. Everything I had hoped for. I had looked at a couple of other vendors selling belts online and I'm very glad I chose your company.
Thank You Sir! I'll make sure to spread the word around here, your
courtesy is most likely a reflection of the good work, and dedication to
Keep it up and keep it in America!
I received the wallet today and it looks great! It surpasses all my expectations, which were very high.
Again, I greatly appreciate the help.
Hi Henry, I received the wallet today. It's lovely, thank you for your patience and assistance with my order.
Received the belt I ordered today. It looks very fine. Am sure it will provide me with many years of durable good looks and service!
Got the belts in the mail today Henry. First class! Thanks for a pair of great belts, and I'll look at your website whenever I need something else in leather.
Just wanted to say I love the belt. It is a world of difference when you can get the right size belt and even some options not available on mass produced junk! I wasn't sure what to expect with the narrower spaced 7-hole option, but you absolutely nailed it! I have already ordered another black dress belt with the same specs!
Good Afternoon Mr LeClaire!
I just wanted to let you know that I received the belt you made for me last night; IT IS GORGEOUS!!! It is beautifully and meticulously handcrafted and fits the Hopi buckle perfectly. My husband loves it! Thank you so much for all of your care, hard work, and detailed craftsmanship. It is nice to know that some things are still done the "Old-Fashioned" American way. Thank you again! I hope you have a great weekend!
All the best to you,
I just got my belts & wallet today. Thanks mate, they are absolutely fantastic.
Here are a couple of pictures of my 1928 Buick Model 28-20 that you made belts for. They are fastened to the two spare tires with outside mirrors that I bought and the others were attached to the Trunk on the back. They look very good and I have a few people that has made comments about the belts.
I want to thank you very much for the good workmanship and how fast you were able to ship them.
Once again thank you
I received the belt, dye and sealer in two days which was super fast. I used the dye and sealer on my old belt and it looks like brand new except for the stitching which you had warned me about. Not a big deal and there are many years of use left in that belt. I believe it is about 5 years old and I wore it each day for that time. I am extremely pleased with the new belt as well. I wish to tell all your customers what a class act you are and what super products you sell. I will definitely be back and also recommend your products to others.
I want to confirm receipt of the beautiful belt you made for my father.
I believe I told you this belt was a present to him on his 89th birthday - he is wearing it every day since receipt, and says it is the best 'fit' he has ever experienced from a belt.
Thank you so much
Just wanted to let you know that I could not be more pleased with my Ponderosa wallet. Excellent craftsmanship applied to quality materials. Worth every penny.
I ordered the #2 in buffalo calf. The wallet holds a lot and is very soft but still has a somewhat slim profile. I have ordered from Leather Goods Connection before, my first purchase was the Working Man's Wallet.
I saved the company on my favorites. I would not hesitate to recommend the company to others or to purchase more wallets for gifts.
Hi Henry, you recently made me a Small Ponderosa Wallet in unfinished natural oak leather with natural calfskin interior - I wanted to tell you I'm 'm really pleased with it, it's such beautiful materials and craftsmanship, it's so awesome! There are very similar items being sold by some Japanese manufacturers (Red Moon, Studio D'Artisan) and they cost like $450, and in my opinion they ain't a patch on yours.........
Got the belt. Exactly what I ordered, perfect fit. Should break in beautifully.
I received a belt from you last week, and it's just what I've been looking for. I wish I had ordered two the first time. Thanks for a great product........frank
I received my gun belt today and it was perfect in all aspects from the size, expected quality, looks and workmanship.
Thanks very much for a super product at a reasonable price.
I imagine that as soon as my gun friends see it they will be wanting one also.
Great. I look forward to receiving it (belt). Bought a wallet from you a while back. It's the best one I've ever owned - by a mile.
Great job! Not only did Larry get the belt to me before our anniversary but it fits perfectly...2 holes on either side of where it just fits him. My Husband was very pleased with gift. Thanks again!
I received my belt last Friday and man that's my favorite already. The belt is a perfect fit. Thank you. I'll be ordering another one of your belts as soon as the piggy bank is filled up again. Respectfully Melchor J
I got home yesterday and found my new belts on the porch. They look and feel fabulous the material, colors and hardware are examples of the work of a master craftsman. I can’t thank you enough for the outstanding quality of your products. I look forward to more purchases done the road. In fact I need a brown belt but I have to buy the shoes first. Hey, does that border on too much information or what.
Thanks guys, love your work.
The key cases just arrived. They are absolutely terrific -- a quality far beyond anything on the mass market. This is real craftsmanship and I appreciate it. You are bookmarked on my computer as the top place for leather goods. Thanks!
I received my Working Mans Wallet in just two days after I ordered it and I will have to admit that this is the best wallet that I have ever owned. As soon as I saw how stiff the leather was I knew that this wallet would take a long time to wear out, or matter of fact break in. Exactly what I was looking for in a wallet.
I have been dealing with Leader Goods Connection and they are interested in doing what they can for you, they are loyal and get the job done.I will refer my friends.
I received my new belt today and it is just what I expected. Perfect quality and it fits just right, right out of the box! Thanks for providing a real quality product at a reasonable price. Good luck with your business and your craft, you're on the right track.
My name is Anthony. I work with LeatherHideStore.com.
I just found your site today and it looks like you guys have tons of experience making great leather products.
I really enjoyed looking at all your pictures on your 30YearsAgo page.
Keep up the good work. I just wanted to touch base, introduce our company and complement you on the great leather working site.
Hey Henry, I just received my belt. It's perfect, better than I had hoped for. Keep up the good work. Thanks again.
I Purchased some of your belts a few years ago and was worried you might be out of business. They are of great quality and that leather wears great. The buckle eyeholes do not tear. Purchased a Filson Bridal Leather belt and it is already spent. Keep up the great work . Thanks Pat
I received my dark brown Working Mans Wallet yesterday and I have to admit it feels really good to have a wallet that you have to break in on your own. This is exactly the type of wallet that I was looking for. Thank you so much for making a great quality, American made wallet. I am definitely a customer for life.
Good Morning Henry,
Thanks for the great workmanship on my new belt. It fits perfectly and is the most comfortable belt I have ever used. My friends will definitely hear about this.
May your business prosper.
The working man's wallet is great, even though I'm retired! It replaces a series of flea market specials that lasted a year at the most, and it takes me back to my leather purchases of the 60's and 70's. Keep up the tradition and great craftsmanship.
Got the belt.
I'm very pleased. Workmanship is great. I will order again, if this belt wears out or I live long enough.
Thank you Henry!
I was very satisfied with the purchase of my product. It was very helpful to know my question(s)would be answered in a timely manner. In addition, I appreciate the workmanship and craftsmanship that was put into the wallet that I requested. To know that this wallet was made in the U.S.A. and by hand makes it even more special to give as a gift.
I've worn my belt for several days now and I'm very pleased with it. Nice
work, sir! The website does a fine job conveying color and "look" in
general to us internet customers. I've been looking for a belt with a finer
"hand," a bit more flexible than probably most folks prefer. I bought such
a handmade belt in the early seventies and it was my Levi's belt of choice
for a couple of decades. My memory of it has set a high bar for my most
recent search. I have visited stores and craft shows and I was beginning to
think that type of leather just wasn't available anymore but the discussion
about leather on your website held out some hope. I must say that as soon
as I took your belt out of the box I smiled because I knew you had delivered
what I was looking for.
Again, many thanks and I think I'll be ordering a black colored belt
Hello and many thanks!!
Received my wallet today, im amazed with the quality and true workmanship.
cant wait to show my buds at work. They will be impressed im sure, and will be future customers im betting.
Good evening Henry,
This is Melissa, and I want to say thank you so much for such great service. I am happy with the purchase and given as a gift, it was very much appreciated. I was very excited to know that the wallet was made right here in the U.S.A. and I was very proud giving such an item as a gift. Thank you again and thank you for your business card. I will be ordering from you again soon.
I received my order friday morning and was immediately pleased with the quality of the wallet. The leather smells, looks and especially feels amazing. I love the unique styling of the sideways card pockets and the interior stitching is flawless. I can't wait to see how the leather breaks in over time. Last but not least thank you for running a business that hand makes a quality american product that people can be proud of owning.
Got my belt yesterday and I'm thrilled at the workmanship and quality! Been around a lot of leather goods in my life, from saddles to sandals, and this belt is everything I could hope for.
I'll be ordering another one at least, maybe more.
Montana & Arizona
My Name is Seth the order was under william
i got my plain black belt in last thursday 1/25/13 and the workmanship was very good i love it i will be passing your name around if anybody ask for a place that sells leather goods.
Just received my Ponderosa wallet in the mail today. The wallet is beautiful and the quality is second to none. I received a prompt confirmation email that my order was shipped and I got it three days after placing the order, very quick. I would definitely recommend you guys to people for leather goods!!
Thanks again - Bill
The order was completed in great time and as always the final product was perfect. I would order more from LeatherGoodsConnection.com only I can't seem to wear out the items I have ordered fast enough.
My fiance has a way of destroying his clothing, and his belts keep splitting and cracking. We went to the store and the belts were almost as expensive as the ones here, and all made in China. I have had a belt from LeatherGoodsConnection for about a year and it still looks brand new, so I decided to get him 2 belts of his own (casual and dress). When they arrived, he was shocked at the good quality leather and at how handsome they were. We'll see if he can wear these out!
Just wanted to let you know he's thrilled with the belt! He wanted me to convey it's sure nice to spend money on quality merchandise and workmanship. Very happy to have found you----Thank you!
The belt is perfect. Thank you! I wanted to send you a picture sooner, but he never takes it off.
Just got the belt today, Bill. What a beauty! I absolutely love it.
Henry, the wallet is beautiful. You do most excellent work sir! I will recommend you to all my friends *:) happy
Just wanted to let you know I received and love the wallet. Exactly what I have been looking for and wonderful to be able to purchase a U.S. made quality piece.
Hi Henry & crew many thanks for my belt and wallet you certainly exceeded my expectations, i will be showing them to my buddies here in the UK, i will most certainly be placing another order soon, very best regards John M.
Rating: Excellent,clear,easy to follow instructions on their web site.
They even included a video on how to measure a belt accurately.The quality of their work was excellent.
Henry, just to let you know my wallet arrived today in good condition even though the envelope was crushed and torn.
It was a pleasure doing business with you
Just wanted you to know, I bought my first wallet from you probably 8 years ago. When my son started driving, I was trying to get him to carry his license around all the time, so I gave him my wallet. Then, dude wouldn't give it back. So, I'm ordering my 2nd wallet from you and when my next son starts driving, I'll just order him his own.
You make great products that last forever. My original one that my son now carries still looks great, no damaged areas, just a great piece of leather work.
I purchased a plain leather work belt from you in July of last year. In my 70 years of wearing belts I have never had a finer piece of leather. After six months of daily wear this belt looks and feels like the day I received it. Truly a beautiful piece of work.
Henry and Staff.
I received my new work belt this week. I have worn it every day since its arrival and love the feel. It is a 1 1/2" wide harness leather belt with the oak and acorn imprint. I would have to say it is the most beautiful belt I have ever worn. The workmanship on it is superb. Almost hate to wear it while I am working, I work in the outdoors in all kinds of weather. That is hard on a belt.
Also, the directions on how to measure a belt are spot on. I measured mine per the instructions and it fits to a tee.
I have added a few pictures to show off my old belt buckle, and how it looks on my new belt. It is an old Levi's buckle and was actually still Made In The USA when I bought it.
I can see a new dress belt in my near future. The ranger line has caught my eye. *;) winking
Thanks to all.
Just received my wallet it's fantastic! Thanks very much
What a great job, I could not be more pleased. I have had many complements and will have to forward your web site to several friends. Thanks again,
Just received my Ranger belt 3 days ago. Beautiful is how I would describe it. The quality and workmanship are superb. I usually hang my belts inside of my closet. This belt found its home prominently displayed on the bed in the guest bedroom, so that I could glance at it as I passed by. Looking forward to actually wearing it.
I have to say that I was a little nervous about ordering such a pricey (for me, anyway) belt. But, the picture I had painted in my mind paled in comparison to the moment I pulled my belt out of the delivery box. The color, the stitching, the grooves, and the buckle set all pulled together to create a work of art.
Thank you, Henry.
I was so thrilled with the belts that I had ordered and the fact that it was stated that I may not get the ranger belt until after Christmas and it still managed to get here before Christmas was an added bonus. My husband was delighted and states he will be getting another one soon in a different color. (just to have on hand) Thank you so very much for the work you put into the belts, it was wonderful and shows in your workmanship. Thanks again.
Henry, We received it today, and he loves it. I'll be ordering another one soon. Thank you for the great service. Lynda
Bill, wanted to let you know I got my belt Christmas Eve, installed my buckle set, and it fits great and looks perfect. Thank you,
Just wanted to let you know that my husband is thrilled with his ranger belt . I'm happy to have discovered your website and will definitely order again .
I love the belt and wallet I got from you approx 2 years ago .They even went for a swim when I broke through thin ice with my quadrunner and fishing shanty. I am very hard on stuff and they have held up well.
Bill, I got the belts last week and put the buckle sets on them; I just need to get the tips set and then I’m ready to go. The belts are gorgeous and the leather quality and the workmanship is top notch. I will be ordering two more belts soon for the last two buckle sets I have.
Just a note to thank you for the extremely fast fulfillment of my latest order. Less than a week from placing the order to receiving the belt. Your quality is high, and with speed like this.... I'll never buy from another.
I'm really looking forward to a Ranger style belt. I've always wanted one, and now know who'll give me the quality I want.
I hope your holiday season has been kind to you.
The best belts I have owned and worn in my life come from your shop. My dad, who is very rough on belts, normally doesn't get more than a year out of one; The one you made him for Christmas 2009 he still wears daily and it's wearing well. Thank you for the quality of your products! And MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
I got my belt today, PERFECT ! You know I try to buy "made in USA" whenever I can, I did not realize that not only are you in country, but in-state as well. I will pass your name on to friends.
This it the first comfortable belt I have worn since I wore out the one like it I bought in 1967 and wore until 1997. Infinitely adjustable not incrementally......gee now there's a concept.....because my waist size is ALWAYS the same.....rolleyes......
The belt looks and works great ! I know my son will be thrilled with it as well.
Thank you so much and have a great Holiday.
I received my belt today and was very surprised when I opened the package. It is the best belt I have seen in years. I was also surprised that it got here so early. I am very pleased with you guys and will use you again when ever I need another belt or other leather accessory. I am so proud of your workmanship. Thank you so wonderfully much.
Received the belt yesterday. Loved, loved it and I think my husband will too. Your website has a lot of information on it, but it was information I needed in order to order the belt I wanted in the correct size. Don't be surprised if we order a "work" belt after Christmas! Have a great Christmas.
P.S. I also liked that the belt came from NC.
Just got the belt and it is perfect...could not be happier. Thanks for the quick service.
Hello Mr. Hibbard,
I wanted to write and tell you how happy I am with my recent purchase from your store. I purchased a simple dark brown belt with wheat stitching and brass buckle and am very pleased with it. It was purchased for my father as a Christmas present. I'm from Australia and my parents still live there. When they visited in 2009, we looked in many stores for a quality leather belt but were unable to find one. The belt you made is exactly what I was looking for and I hope to purchase more of your goods soon. Thank you.
Thanks for the fine, well-made ranger belt you made for me. It arrived in good order and I wear it daily.
I got it. Awesome belt! Thank you! Think about 1.3" belt now.
Troitsk, g. Moskva,
I bought your working mans wallet for my husband in 2007 or maybe it was 2008 as a Christmas gift. He has told me several times this is the most durable wallet he has ever owned and its design has just the right amount of space to fit everything he needs in it. I am buying him a new one because his was recently stolen. We are extremely satisfied with your product.
My belt arrived today and it is fabulous. I love the quality of the leather and the heft of the brass buckle and Chicago Screws. I am by no means a "clothes horse" but I am very fussy about what I buy and much prefer quality to quantity. Thanks for putting in the extra hole to encourage me on my diet. I want to be able to wear this belt for a long time.
I was also delighted by the fast service especially during the holidays. I hope you are extremely successful since your product is wonderful.
Got it today and it is wonderful (as was the belt I ordered earlier). I’ve never spent this kind of money on a wallet in my 66 years, but the value is certainly there. I’m pretty sure they can either bury it with me or I can pass it on to my grandson.
Thanks for the quick service.
my belt arrived yesterday. I'm pleased with it. Thanks.
(Order was placed on the 19th and received on the 27th in Zurich
It was waiting for me when I got home. It is an awesome belt. It is exactly what I wanted. Thank you very much.
Can't wait to see the double ring belt that I also ordered.
Bill, the belt arrived today. Great timing as his birthday is today and that was his present!!!! Thank you so much. It looks great and fits him just right. He said the holes were perfect. Anybody asks where I had it done I will give them your website. Nothing like good word of mouth for advertising.
I received the belt today, and it is amazing! I read great things
about you, but this even far exceeded my expectations! It's now the
nicest belt I own. Will be sure to order more, and also pass your
website on to others.
I just picked it up today. It's the finest belt I own. Thank you.
I received my beautiful belt today. It really exceeds my
expectations and is easily the nicest belt I've ever owned. Thanks for all your careful work.
I just wanted to comment on the Working Man's wallet. This is the second one of these wallets I have purchased for my husband and he was very pleased with the quality and workmanship. Thanks for such a superior product. His first wallet lasted about 10 years where any other wallet would last a year. Thanks again for this American made product.
I am so happy with my wallet and with the belt loop. I am using the belt loop for my ID at work. It looks much nicer than the cheap plastic clip that I had before for my my belt and I've already received some nice comments from colleagues!
Sorry for the delay in responding but I wanted to send you a note now that I received my belt. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! The craftsmanship and attention to detail are evident as is the high quality of leather used. Thank you so much for making a belt for me that I will enjoy for years to come. I will definitely be ordering another one from you in the future. Again, LOVE the belt!
I received my belt today and it is beautiful. I am very happy it and I will surely be ordering from you soon. Thanks again, its nice to have your expectations exceeded.
I've just received the belt I ordered with you. Really impressed with the quality, and the sizing is spot on. Also really impressed with how quickly it arrived over here in Australia.
I'll definitely be recommending you in the future.
Thanks very much,
Henry I got my Ponderosa at work today ...what an AWESOME wallet...absolutely smitten and overwhelmingly impressed by how beautiful and well made it is.
Cannot believe how well priced as well!!! Please accept my very greatest appreciation and best wishes. I wont be going anywhere else but to Leather Goods Connection from now on!!
It was a delight to receive the belt in the mail on Monday. The quality and
workmanship exceeded my expectations.
Got the belt on Saturday, just beautiful- more than I would normally spend but it is worth it. Thanks for reinforcing my faith in "Made in America".
Just wanna let you know , I am really happy with the wallet .
Everything is just perfect, it is truly a masterpiece.
You have been really helpful and responsive as well during the process, even helping me in getting a better deal.
Once again I am really satisfied, will be back for the belt
Have a good day at work and thank you,
today I received your beautiful wallet and I instantly put all my stuff in it and threw away my old wallet. The color and feel of the leather is amazing and it beautifully harmonizes with the horse hide inside. This is a very nice piece of craftsmanship that you assembled. I am excited about how it will age over time.
Bill – Here is my beautiful belt and James Reid buckle. Shine my boots and I’m ready to go dancin’ Thx a million. Tom
it arrived today! it's better than expected, and i was expecting the best. thanks Henry
Bill, I received my belt Thursday and I am so pleased!!! I wish I had done the stamping and grooves on the first belt. I can't compliment you enough on your craftsmanship. I threw away all my old belts yesterday--I will certainly be ordering more. A VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER!!!! John
I'm delighted with my ranger belt -- a top quality, custom-made belt at a department store price. Service was rapid and thoughtful. This is where I go for belts from now on.
hey Henry, received my belt today, that a fine lookin belt.......tks, dusty
wow! beautiful wallet.
well made and fits well.
Thank you sir and enjoy your weekend.
Received the package today... and I must say it is a total success. Beautiful leather with expert workmanship. I'm so glad I found your company.
Thank you very much for the magnificent belt I received in the mail today. It's superb and I'm very pleased with it.
I JUST this minute received the ranger belt. This is not a belt. It is a piece of art work that will be respected on a level which it deserves! You should be very proud, I know i am and will be back!
Got it. Your gun belts are the best, I have two from you. Am going to order a smaller, for when I lose weight.
Absolutely love the belt, thanks!
Received the belt today and it is awesome...fits right and matches the buckle I inherited from my Father perfectly. Thanks.
I received my wallet today and have to say it is more than expected. I figured it would be great quality, but I really believe this Is the last wallet I will ever have to buy. Thanks for living up to the quality and craftsmanship most people want. Customer for life.
I just got back to London from a long summer in France to find my leather plaited belt in my post. It is quite superb and better even than I had expected. Thanks for your great quality and service.
Now I simply have to wait five years for it to be really broken in...........bit like a good French wine perhaps.............
Just got the belt you made for me. Back in the seventies when hippies walked the earth I was a leather worker. It was fun, I learned some stuff, and it made me unintentionally critical of nearly all the leather I've seen since. Making a good belt is a simple thing: you just have to do every last thing right. I'm extremely pleased with this sample of your work!
Very, very nice. Thanks,
Belt has arrived. I've been wearing it for a week. It's beautiful! Thank you very much.
Hey there! I ordered my Ponderosa Chain Wallet about a year ago, and
after HEAVY use, it is in as great shape as when I first received it.
I get comments all the time on how great it looks, and questions as
to where they can order one (which I gladly tell them)! I can't
express how satisfied I am with the product. Thanks guys, truly
Holy crap, what an awesome product! I expected it to be great, but it exceeded my expectations. It even smells good. I will be in touch in the future for more purchases and will spread the word.
I just received my new belt today. Perfect in every way. You say what you can do and do what you say. This is true professionalism and craftsmanship in every sense of the word. Top notch quality at a fair price. I couldn’t have asked for more.
Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the belt that I ordered from you a few months ago. Top quality product.
I believe it was about a decade ago that I purchased my first belt from you. It might have been a bit longer.
Since then, that belt saw hell. It served me across the nation as an expedition and off-pavement enthusiast. I wore it climbing mountains, wading through frigid streams, digging my Land Rover out of deep mud, and in temperatures ranging from nearly -60 to 120 degrees. I wore it in Death Valley and in the Badlands; from salt flats to vehicular hill-climbs. It's survived blizzards and hurricanes, as well.
I (rather illegally) ran the Cannonball route solo with a time of three days and eight minutes. Hey. I was in a Land Rover. You can't expect a legendary time...
That wasn't all.
After military service, I took my adventurous spirit elsewhere. I spent time in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Sudan. I wore that belt every second of every day. It held everything from pouches to knives; machetes to firearms. I wore it in very dangerous situations. Indeed, after being poisoned with a neurotoxin in Voi, I was dragged away from the assailants by that very belt, convulsing and gasping for air.
In the same light, that wasn't the only time an emergency was averted with the aid of that belt. I more than once used it to pull someone from a terrible drowning incident, and used it to pull away from a broken limb when felling a tree.
When I entered a little-known wasteland in the Great Rift Valley, I was wearing that belt. 125 degree environment, with heat waves so thick a man could hide a hundred feet in front of me on flat ground with no cover at high noon. Described by one explorer as a "frying pan of desolation", I'm one of a very few who have ventured there, surrounded by cinder-cones and razor -sharp rock as far as the eye could see.
Far from the world of adventure, I've worn it at black-tie evening parties in many strange locations. Oh, yes, it's brown, and I never wore those ties, but it didn't matter. Paired with a fine jacket, clever shirt and matching shoes, I've always been accepted.
That belt has survived what might be the toughest use imaginable. It may have even saved my life on occasion. Perhaps indirectly, but if my belt had broken, I'd have been in deep trouble.
Unfortunately, when I slowed down, I gained a few pounds, and ordered another. It hasn't been abused, but it could take it.
Not too long ago, two discs failed completely in my neck, and I lost another in my back. It was only a matter of time, given my lifestyle. Naturally, I gained a few more pounds, and here I am, ordering another. The payment was made only a few minutes ago.
Once I'm repaired and reasonably healthy again, I'm planning another adventure. It's an unsupported recreation of the longitude run, from arctic circle to arctic circle on the American continents. Freezing cold to humid jungle conditions, in the worst terrain available along the way.
I'll be wearing one of these three belts for the journey. I won't ever get my original figure back, but if I did, I'd not hesitate to use my first purchase.
In short, you assemble the best belts available. It may be possible to replicate them, but that's not the point. You already provide a product that's capable of handling anything the world throws at it, while it's attached to a damned fool that can't get enough of it all.
Here's the summary: I broke before the belt did. I've lost discs, ended up with bone spurs and arthritis, nasty scars, worn joints and internal injuries. The belt is still fine.
As long as you are providing them, I'll be buying them. I've never had a piece of gear more reliable. To provide them at such a price... It's unbelievable.
Thank you for steadfastly following me through my life.
Got the belt today. Great product, fast delivery.Thanks for making it in the US.
I am COMPLETELY satisfied with the wallet and belt I bought off this website. I was dead tired of buying belts at the department stores only to have them fall apart in short order. After an internet search, your site drew me in and you lived up to what you stated on it. Henry, you won me by the "unprofessional" look of your website and the apparent quality of the products pictured on it. I reasoned that you obviously were very interested in creating a quality leather product since you obviously weren't spending a lot of time or money on your website. No glitz, to me, means that you are a true craftsman. DO NOT CHANGE A THING! Keep following your passion of making GREAT leather goods.
Henry, it arrived today and is an exceptional piece of work. Thank you.
I am very glad I happened along your web site.
I received my wallet today in the mail, and I must say it's so much
better than I ever expected. It's a very fine quality piece of
craftsmanship. I also appreciate the easy ordering and shipping
process. Thanks for everything.
My Ponderosa wallet arrived in the uk after a lightening speed delivery service. I love it and it should provide me with a lifetime of use !! Many thanks.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the magnificent belt. Your craftsmanship is superb.
It has been a pleasure to deal with you, and rest assured should I need another belt, I will again turn to you.
My sincerest thanks,
Thank you for the gorgeous belt!!! It's so nice to find a craftsman. We will recommend you to all the contractors, etc. in our area.

Just a short note, the belt arrived about a week and a half ago. Looks
fantastic,just as nice as the black one I ordered last year. Thanks!
Great looking belt! Just the high quality I was looking for all alone. Nice to know that an American still makes high quality products in the USA. Thanks so much.
I've ordered three belts from Leather Goods Connection and they have all
been of outstanding quality. The first belt I ordered seven years ago
as a last-minute Christmas gift for my husband. I was told the belt
wouldn't be delivered in time for Christmas, which was fine since
that's what's you get for ordering at the last minute. Amazingly, the
belt made it in time for Christmas. My husband has worn it everyday
since then and it's still going strong. The second belt I ordered for
myself five years ago and have worn it pretty much every day. It
hardly shows any sign of wear. Today, I got a belt that I ordered just
four business days ago. It's beautiful, well-made and I love it.
These are by far the best belts available. Thanks for all of your
great service and even better belts.
I received my ranger belt and could not be more pleased. It is gorgeous! It looks amazing with my riding pants. Very classy!
The workmanship is top notch, and I am pretty particular about leather goods. This belt not only met, but exceeded my expectations! Thanks so much for gettting it to me so quickly as well!
I will be ordering from you again!
Henry, first let me Thank you for an outstanding product. I searched for months after returning from overseas for an American made biker wallet that would not require a small mortgage. With quality and craftsmanship. You have exceeded all expectations.
I appreciate your help. The belt is beautiful, it fits, and is very comfortable. I will be letting people know where it came from. I appreciate you.
I received me two belts and I just wanted to say they look amazing. The quality of the belts are second to none!
Hands-down this is the best belt I have ever seen or owned, Thank You. Nice to see this level craftsmanship, it is a rare thing to find these days. Well Done!
I thought that I should report that I have received the belt and worn it in a dress situation. It is superb. Independent professionals like yourself give me hope.
My sincere thanks,
My wallet that my kids got me for xmas is bringing in well. I really like it. Thanks for the superior construction and bomb proof custom job.,,,,,I get lots of compliments on it. This one is for my son...he is real hard on it equipment....now that will be a true test....I am confident that the wallet will stand up well.
This is my 2nd custom made belt from this merchant. The quality is excellent. Its not cheap, but I consider it a gift to myself, and I'm worth it.
Thanks so much for accommodating my request to modify my recent purchase. As previously mentioned I absolutely love the high quality products you create! Don't be surprised when you soon hear from me requesting again another round of modifications for another beautifully crafted belt. You rock, Bill!!
I received the wallet today, and it looks perfect. It's exactly what I was hoping for, and I know that my Dad will love it even more then I do. Thank you very much for going the extra mile and for doing such a great job!
Thanks for the belt. It looks great. It fits great. It feels great.
There IS a market for great leather products such as yours.
After receiving my first belt from your company I knew right away it would not be the last.Your seven braid belt will be number two,for my wife this time.This level of quality and craftsmanship is not common today. Why buy a Chinese made belt for 16.00 bucks that will last maybe two years when you can spend 40.00 bucks on a belt handmade by American craftsmen that will last decades.Thank You for the outstanding quality and customer service.Greg H.
I am very pleased with your craftsmanship. I wore the belt yesterday for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed and received many complements. Thnak you.
The belt arrived today ... it's a classic. Leather and your craftsmanship are top-shelf. Thanks again for excellent service. - Tom, Argyle, TX
Thank you for the beautiful belt.
You shipped fast, belt fits perfectly and looks great.
I am proud to wear this belt as you should be in making it.
Received the belt last Friday. It is beautiful and so very well crafted.......professional work!
I especially like the extra thickness......it's perfect.
I will spread the word.
Got my wallet and it exceeded my expectations. You have my full recommendation.
I absolutely love this wallet, your the best
I just received the wallet (Robert-Anchorage, Ak) All I can say is WOW, Very Nice!
Thank You, I would love to get the wife one of your bags when available. Let me know when you make some.
I received just my belt today, just wanted to say I'm very pleased with it. It's just as I imagined and the color is a great match for my shoes. I'll be sure to return if I ever need to purchase anything leather. Thanks for the quick response!
hi, i got the belt and wallet in today and just wanted to say they look great! thanks a lot.
Got my Bridal Leather Work Belt after a very short wait. I'm extremely pleased at he quality of components and assembly. can't wait to get a custom Ranger from you; I'm enjoying thinking about the perfect combination.
it is really nice to come across someone who takes such pride in the work, and offers great quality at an extremely reasonable price. Thank you.
Just want you to know that I received (very promptly) my 2nd LGC belt, and like the first, I flat out love it. Quality materials and workmanship...hmmm, what a concept!
Thank you very much for making these available online.
Just to let you know the belt has arrived safely this morning and is fabulous, my husband is over the moon with it.
Many thanks for the belt.
Thanks for getting it to me before my sons birthday on 6th

all is good! Its arrived these days.Im very happy with it. GREAT WORK , great leather colour! Thank you for that best quality craftmanship. Will wear it my for the rest of my life.

After having two "Harley" wallets fall apart in one year, and retuning a wallet to another highly rated leather web site for poor workmanship, I am SO happy with my wallet from LeatherGoodsConnection. Easy to order, quick delivery, and an exceptional product.
I just purchased one of your wallets and I am very pleased with the
products craftsmanship and quality. I am tired of little flimsy
wallets that have to be replaced every few months. This one seems to
be made to last for years to come.
Today I already received my ponderosa wallet! I have to thank you, I am a very happy man. Excellent craftsmanship. The shipping and communication very good and very fast.
I have to warn you though, I'm going to spread the word here in Amsterdam of your excellent work ;-)
Very best of regards from a very happy customer,
received the goods this afternoon.... slapped on the belt, threw in the wallet and was off to the races. good stuff thank you.
Hello Bill, I received my new belt and it is perfect in color and size. Great job and well worth the cost. Your site is on my list of favorites and I will order again. Cary
I just received my new wallet today, and all I can say is NICE. Feels and smells great. It makes me happy to have a beautiful American made wallet in my pocket everyday.
Hello Mr. Hibbard!
Today the Belt you have made for me arrived.
A really nice piee of craftsmanship,i'm very satisfied!
Is fits perfectly,and looks very professional made.
Thanks a lot and greetings from Austria
Web site was easy to navigate. Prices were very reasonable. Communications from the site were on time and clear. Item was shipped much faster than I had expected. Quality of the Ranger belt is top notch. Highly recommended.
Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my new belt. The quality of the leather and your workmanship are both excellent.....and, I ordered the "plain vanilla" model. And, you were true to your word about the completion and shipping time.
I recommend LeatherGoodsConnection to anyone looking for quality leather products.
WOW,, I received my new Ranger Belt today,, it was more than I expected. Beautiful workmanship, Great leather used, The hardware is great quality and I would recommend your Belts to anyone in need or even if they didnï¿½t need one at this time.
I will be ordering another one soon. Thank you so much for a great product, The very best that you can buy at a very reasonable price.
Hello Henry, just wanted to send in a comment for your page. Spent a lot of time looking for a high quality wallet made in the USA. Eventually found your site and chose the brown shrunken grain with calf interior. My order was fulfilled in no time and shipped right to my mailbox. Will take a while to fully break in but the wallet looks and works great now and I'm hoping for a nice patina as it ages; it's a keeper. Will definitely order from your site again. Recommended!
I just wanted to say thank you for such a fabulous service and great wallet. My husband is over the moon with it.
I didnï¿½t expect it to arrive so soon and am really pleased how quick it has come.
Thank you again and I will be in touch for more items soon.
Got the belt. This is the best quality belt I've bought in years! I tossed
that store bought thing in the trash as soon as yours arrived. The sizing
was perfect thanks to your good instructions on your web page.
I plan on sharing your web page with my woodworking buddies. I hang out on
a WW forum with several hundred other guys, mostly in the states.
I received the wallet today. It is fantastic!
Thank you so much, and I will continue to recommend you guys to all my friends!
Today I received the Belt I ordered for my wife's B-Day
Absolutely the best belt of this kind, I ever saw. Outstanding Quality and as others on this site already said the belt looks better than on the pictures. It is a heavy Quality and over top craftsmanship.
Cheers Mike T, Kiel, Germany
Received my first belt from you,I am well pleased with it. Cannot buy one of this quality in any store. Will be ordering more.....Thanks John
had my Wallet in the mailbox today, and i could not be happier! It is realy well crafted and nice!
I was a bit scared because i had no way to track it, and thougt it could be tricky with customs and german post
afterwards.... but everything worked fine.
I just want to say Thank you for a great wallet and super service.
I purchased a belt and wallet from you a bit ago, and have been meaning to give my thanks and recommendation for some time. I will put it simply: this is the highest quality stuff I have. To all: buy here without any reservations, this stuff will last. Excellent pricing as well, do not hesitate, you won't regret it. Leather craftsmen of this calibre are not commonplace. If you have found this site you were looking for the best, which you have now found.
I received the belt I ordered. It is a beautiful work of art. You and your team are real craftsmen. Keep up the good work.
My order was completed and delivered on time. It was my first order with them. I expected, from their web site descriptions, a very good product. It was. I would say that it was excellent in all respects. Buy from them, you won't be disappointed.
I just wanted to express how pleased I am with the "Ranger" belt I recently received. The fit, finish, and overall quality of your work was better than expected and is admired by all who has seen seen my belt. In a time when massed produced, poor quality goods flood the market it is good to know there is a place where I can still find quality American leatherwork. Many thanks for the excellent craftsmanship and all the best.
I just wanted let you know the wallet arrived yesterday. Looks and feels great. Just want I was looking for it feels broke in already. Thanks again
I just received my Burgundy ranger belt, similar to the one pictured on your site.
It looks just as good and is beautifully made. I appreciate the style and craftsmanship. "Store bought" does not come close.
I have some DeSantis and Ted Blocker belts that I wear a lot. They are close to yours in quality but I wish I had discovered you earlier.
The other belts hanging in the closet aren't going to get much wear!
Just received my new wallet, it's beautiful. Thanks for such a great product. Two people have already asked where they can get one!
Sent from my iPhone
I received my Ranger Belt today within the time frame advertized. It is AWESOME.
Upon opening the box and plastic bag, I could immediately smell the real American Leather I was holding.
The workmanship is without flaw. Great materials and great fit.
I asked for a 5 hole billet instead of 6, got it! I changed my mind about the buckle I had selected
a few days after ordering. I e-mailed Henry and he changed it as requested!
The website says I would receive notice of shipment and I did!
Being 52 years old, I HAVE LEARNED THAT IN MOST CASES YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and this
is a fine example of that knowledge.
I will order again when the need arises.
Only downfall is I now have to buy new britches (that's trousers) worthy of this fine accessory.
Thanks a bunch - they arrived today. Wow - that's some fine looking and very impressively crafted leather. I've had a number of well made, commercially manufactured ranger belts - but the ones you all made for me far exceed anything I've seen (or owned) before. They also work perfect with various belt holsters for my guns very nicely - best of everything - fantastic looks, highest quality and craftsmanship, and great utility. Couldn't ask for anything better and worth every penny. I don't think I'll ever buy a belt in a store again - nothing compares.
Thanks again for these fine belts and the customer service was also outstanding. Sincerely, Mike G
Hi ! Bill, My wife's belt arrived Yesterday, That is the current state of our G.P.O.........
As I expected the belt was a leather masterpiece.Thank you very much. She,('Er indoors') loved it. Thanks again, Stay safe and God bless you all. Peter J.
The belt I ordered just arrived today, and I could not be more pleased! It is a beautiful piece of work. The pictures on your website truly do not capture how good it looks in the real world. Thanks for making such a quality product and for getting it done promptly! I'm so glad I found you on the web. It is difficult to find belts made without buckles. I'll be back!
Well, I went with the custom belt option and couldn't be happier with the product received. My only gripe was that I'm a 38 and in the midst of doing the order form 3 or 4 times, it got changed to a 35, so now I have to lose some weight to fit the belt. Oh well, motivation to lose weight isn't a bad thing. I'd like to also mention that the shipping was extremely speedy and that it only took a couple days for the order to be made as well. I'll be buying another couple belts from LeatherGoodsConnection.com in the future.
My new belt arrived yesterday. Looks good, my wife commented this morning when I got dressed for church "that belt really looks sharp!" Thanks.
I have been wanting a new quality leather chain wallet for some time. I stumbled across LeatherGoodsConnection and right away was sold on the quality, attention to detail in their products and fast helpful customer service before ordering.
I put in my order for a small ponderosa wallet right after christmas and received it very quickly considering it is a custom handmade item. Right away after receiving my wallet, I noticed it is of very high quality leather. The leather is much thicker than any of my previous chain wallets most of which were thin leather laid over other material. It is taking some time to break the leather in and become less stiff but I see that as a good sign of quality and durability. I opted for the hand stained leather option with natural interior and it looks fantastic inside and out. The outside has a rich color that should not peel off like my previous cheaper wallets while the inside is natural unfinished leather. The unfinished leather seems to hold things in place more with its texture making it a perfect combination.
The ponderosa has a single snap keeping it secure but easy to get at, the added coin snaps are a really nice touch I think. The leather belt strap is very thick and stout while the snap is solid and hasn't popped loose on me at all. I was a little worried about the size but it fits perfect in all my jeans and dickies work pants. It is really no bigger than my previous tri-fold wallets and has plenty of slots for individual cards and 2 pockets for stuff like insurance papers. The bill fold compartment is deep and holds bills as it should.
This wallet cost me about three times what my wallets usually cost but I see this as a long term investment and not something that will be replaced in 1-2 years like my previous wallets. I am completely satisfied and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation.
My Working Man's Wallet just arrived! What a piece of craftsmanship! It truly will be a wallet I will have for a long time to come. Having owned many wallets over the years, they all pale in comparison. It arrived quickly and in time for Christmas :-) I cannot wait till it works in. I ordered the light brown because I love the patina of leather and this one will definitely fit the bill. Henry was extremely responsive and again, his craftsmanship is incredible..
Hi Larry ,I received belt today and am very satisfied as usual.This is my 5th belt from you guys.I wear them everyday and get compliments always.I take the time to tell people that it's not expensive when you consider how long these will last. Also just finding quality leather and expert leather craftsmen still making belts in the USA is something I'm proud to spend my hard earned money on.Feel free to use this on your feedback forum or if you want I'll do it. Sincerely Kevin Mosher.
My belt and my wallet are better than described. Workmanship is exceptional, followed the instructions to measure and my belt fit exactly right. Wallet is roomy and feels nice to hold, not so slippery, stays put.
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that I received the belt from and to pass on that your build for me was EXACTLY what I've been looking for! I have looked for a suitable replacement for my old belt for well over 7 - 8 years now with no luck. Your build is a dead ringer for my old belt. Thanks for building it up for me and I will be purchasing some more belts and such from you in the future! I will also spread the word about your products and excellent workmanship. Thanks again for your time and considerations!
I just received my harness leather belts and must tell you: it doesn't get better than these! Thanks for the wonderful work you've put into these belts. They were made with top quality materials and craftsmanship. And your online size ordering system gave me a perfect fit.
Keep doing what your doing.
Larry. The belts were at the front desk of my building when I came in
tonight from dinner. To say that I am pleased is an understatement. I will
be ordering several more belts from you now that I have seen the quality of
Thanks so much
I received my belt yesterday. Very pleased with it. Great job! I will be
ordering from you again.
Iï¿½ve received the belt. Thatï¿½s quality and that will last a long time. Iï¿½ll send anyone asking your way for sure and Iï¿½ll be ordering another (or 2) as well.
My wife bought me one of your bridle leather wallets (order 15599) for my 42nd birthday. Itï¿½s the first new wallet Iï¿½ve had since I was in 10th grade back in 1985. I bought that one from Georgetown Leather Design (now Wilsonï¿½s Leather) for $30 and it was a source of pride that I was able to keep it that long but I had to admit it was time for it to go. I didnï¿½t check to see where the wallets they are selling now are made but I suspect I know the answer.
Anyway, your wallet came yesterday and itï¿½s quality is top-notch. If all goes as planned, this wallet will be with me on the day the good Lord takes me from this earth. I do like that hand-stitched wallet you make though, so I might have to get one of those down the road. Or maybe a belt.
Anyway, Thank you for having the courage to make your quality leather goods here in the USA. I wish you all the success you can handle for doing things the old-fashioned American way. It does matter!
I just received the leather card case that I ordered, and I must say that I am very pleased with the look and quality of it. We will have to see how it stands up ( it will get hard use) but I am thinking it will live up to my expectations. Thank you for providing a quality item. In a world awash in cheap garbage, it is good to find a place where American quality and craftsmanship are still valued.
Just got the belts and they are fantastic! Two are for Christmas presents on the ranger belt was my present. Thanks again!
Thank you for the quality billfold you sent me this past week. It is just what I have been looking for and is already comfortable. Any other needs I will order from you and tell my friends. Thank you again for your quality work. Its nice to know there are still handmade quality items available that will last.
The belt was here on our return from being away, I had it on all day yesterday, and it is just terrific. My thanks for you wonderful workmanship, and for insisting that I measure, not guess, about the size. Fits "just right".
I got the belt. If someone doesnï¿½t know it that the stitching is made by hand
You can not see any difference to a stitching made computerized. Perfect.
I am really glad.
Have a nice weekend
Received the eyeglass case yesterday. Amazing. Beautiful work. Surpassed all my expectations.
Received your belt today. It's terrific, really; but I need to tell you something. This is a complaint in a funny sort of way. You know, I spent some time looking at your website before I figured out what belt to order. Once I chose a style, size and everything, I then stopped looking and just waited a couple weeks: was thinkin' it over. I mean, why not go down to the store, right? And what's wrong with the one I've got?! So what if it's been roundly, um, employed let's say, it's leather: still a serviceable, even salvageable, tool. I'm a pretty fit guy, amateur athlete and carpenter, but after going on a detox intestinal cleanse I lost weight. Weird because I didn't think I could loose weight. I went through it just for the health bennies. Anyway, loosing the weight (or belt size really, I don't weigh myself) put me on the last hole. I'd have to tuck the belt flap under the loop on my trousers and under the leather keeper of the belt, which at times unfolds and gets in the way when I am working, not to mention how it was becoming too narrow or something (1" in width), and flimsy, uncomfortable. There came a point when I couldn't put it off anymore. I wasn't going to buy another expensive-but-cheap belt and I wasn't thinking about it anymore. I pulled the trigger.
A week passes.
It's Saturday now and I find myself approaching the mailbox, jumping out of the tractor while she's still in gear, grabbing the mail, and running back to jump in, belt parcel in hand. I do a couple things before I head inside for a cup of tea and to, of course, check out my anticipated new belt. So I open the box man and I can't believe it's so nice, I suddenly can't believe my old belt is that unsat, but I can't believe this thing is so, nice. What a value! I worked that old belt like a mule, and could do the same with this one for sure, only I just know it would last twice as long and yet look, and feel, twice as good. It's just the best belt. One can get different belts, but the quality here is best. So thank you. The belt far outshines what I had expected. And this is my complaint: twist my arm, I now have to buy another one. Sturdy, suitable though it may be, I won't put it through the abuse. I'll wear it for sure, I just won't pummel this one. And besides, it looks too good.
Thankin' you for a great belt brother! I'll get back to you soon, and sooner than later this time, about the new mule.
And God Bless America.
Love the belt you all did for me.
It is exactly what I wanted.
Thanks a ton!
After wearing the harness belt I ordered for a week, I can safely say
that this is the highest quality belt I've ever owned, and the price
was very reasonable too.
Keep up the good work!
Received the belt, and, as usual, it is superb quality. I have been loosing
weight on a great plan, and would not dream of replacing my big belt with
Morning Henry, just a little follow-up. Back when I ordered my first bridle leather billfold from you, it sticks in my mind that your website indicated they were then new for you, and as for how the color changed over time, or softness, something like that, you'd have to wait and see what you learned from customers after a while.
The purpose of this note is to tell you that mine has darkened a bit, has what I'll call a little "patina" to it now, and it has just improved over time. Just love it. Beautiful, and while seasoned, it's "better than new," as far as I'm concerned.
I just wanted to let you know how much I love my belt and my buckle looks great. The color of the belt really compliments the stones and it actually looks better than the original belt part! It was my favorite belt and I've had it about 30 years. When the leather wore out and it broke I remember thinking maybe one day I'll find a place that will put in on a new belt. I hadn't thought about trying to look until recently and your name came up. I'm attaching pictures of it and again I just love it. Thanks so much and if anyone I know needs a belt I know who to refer them to! Thank you so much!
Take care and God bless! Bobbie
It's beautiful, it looks great, and looked wonderful in all of the
wedding photos from this past weekend. Thanks so much for the help!
I'll be recommending you to all my friends!
Thanks for getting me the Work Belt so fast. I really appreciated the web site instruction on measuring for the belt (so simple and straightforward). The belt is perfect.
I hope to get my son's sizes and another order to you soon.
I received my belt yesterday and it fits and looks awesome!! Never had a custom made belt but always liked to purchase a more "high end" belt and usually had to find them at a western store but the quality of this belt is superior to them.
Have been wearing the belt you made me for about a week now, fits perfect.
Teamed it up with a very nice holster from TT Gunleather. The two have become my daily carry rig.
Thanks for a fine product and I'm sure I'll be back for more!
I received my belt today and I couldn't be more pleased with the look and quality.
I'm certainly glad that my web surfing found Leather Goods Connection. The prompt delivery and service was first class from your business.
I received my wallet and LOVE IT. It is the perfect size and configuration for my needs...and beautiful. thank you. I will use it for many years to come.
I got my new belt in the mail Saturday and I was supprised how quick you got it out to me. I appreciate the quick shipping. The belt is perfect. I am very pleased by the quality of the work and the attention to detail. I am also very pleased to help support an American craftsman who love what they do. I am sure I will be back as needs for other goods come up. Great work.
2nd belt from you. Best quality ranger belt yet seen. Have you considered moving your operation out here where the real cowboys never left? Plenty more business for ya west of the Pecos. Thanks again.....Happy trails......Fernando
I've just received your wallet... So it took like a week for arriving here...
It's a perfect product, thank you very much... :)
All the best...
just like to say that i received my belt recently and would like to commend leathergoods on the quality and craftsmanship of the final product
Henry, many thanks for the wallet I ordered , the quality is first class as is the way you guys operate , i will no doubt be ordering more goods . ( ps. good luck to the people who are daft enough to pay through the nose for their Red moon wallets ) . thanks again , Ian . Birmingham , England
I love everything I have ordered from you including the great belts, key chains, etc. and if you ever start making the backpacks again I will order the large one because I know the workmanship will be top quality. Thanks for the leather memories.
Just a quick note to let you know that I received your belt and I love it! I think I should have sized it down an inch, but I love the leather and the buckle and look forward to wearing it for many years. Thanks so much!
Just wanted to say thanks for my new work belt! I absolutely could not believe the excellent communication and fast turn around!
A real belt, like in the old days! (I'm 51 I can say that now) Everywhere I looked for belts, only imported junk!
It's nice to have some real leather holding up my pants, as well, beautiful hand craftsmanship! This is what America is all about.

Hello! I bought this for John as a surprise and it is absolutely gorgeous! As soon as I came in from work last night, he showed me. The leather is soft, supple and smells wonderful! I love the personalization on teh inside (almost like a secret) and your craftsmanship is perfect. Thank you so much! This wallet is great!
these guys are true craftsmen, top quality item at an affordable price extremely pleased with my wallet , the best ive ever owned, i will be using leathergoods again and i highly reccommend them many thanks. jay
Hi Henry i have just opened up my package from you , oh yea my man , my ponderosa wallet is brilliant ! spot on , what quality, you are a true craftsman, so happy to have found you, i will be ordering the larger ponderosa soon many many thanks jay
I just received order #15015. This is the 2nd time I've ordered from you. This is a rare object. Something from another place & time. The place would be Wisconsin, I guess, (my wife & I lived in Madison for 2 years), the time would be the 50's or early 60's. When you bought something back then, it was made by hand usually, by a proud American. I'm a former Marine, but I'm not a zealot! I hope you understand where I'm going with this.
In the end it's just a wallet, but it brought a big smile to my face. There can be no bigger praise.
Thanks again, sir! Jon...... a happy customer. ; )
Outstanding quality. Exceptional craftmanship. The Inca design is awesome, a mark of prowess. Your highly recommended medium brown stain is something to behold. I regard you and your talents as a lost and found art. Thank you for the irreplaceable leather work. Anyone out there, look no further. You have found the leather master.
Although the belt was the most expensive of all of my options, I feel good about spending a few extra dollars to get a superior product and custom features. The workmanship and quality of this belt is mind blowing. The ordering process was made simple by their great website. I only had one question about the order and it was answered promptly via email. Production was very fast as was the shipping. If I were to lose this belt I would repurchase it without reservation.
I received my belt on Saturday. Looks great, fits great and worth every
penny. Thank you again for all of you top notch service. The website
represented your workmanship very accurately.
The belt arrived today and it is beautiful. A little darkening with wear and it will last me my life time for sure. I am very happy with how it turned out. Nice and thick one piece leather is just what I wanted. I will be wearing it daily now until I get another belt that fits...
Mahalo and Aloha,
I had heard good things about your company, and it's a fine-looking belt. I'm going to try it for a while and might be back for a brown belt soon.
I appreciate your craftsmanship.
I got it and I am satisfied and absolutely happy.
In Germany we have a saying : all good things come along in threes. This means, that I will contact you for a third belt soon. Regards and have a nice day.
What can I say? My belt arrived to much anticipation. To say that I was pleased would be an understatement.It is a work of art. The workmanship is superb and I can see why you are so passionate about your trade/business.
To comment, in the Australian vernacular, [I am English] would go something like this. Strewth [mild expletive] mate, fair dinkum [honestly] sheï¿½s a beaut.
That just about says it all!
My seven-braid belt is Magnificent!
I will wear it with great pride knowing that it was made by a craftsman in the USA.
I received my belt on Saturday. Looks great, fits great and worth every
penny. Thank you again for all of you top notch service. The website
represented your workmanship very accurately.
I am pleased to inform you that my belt arrived today.
I have been fortunate to have visited the United States on several occasions and I always look for an unusual quality belt. Sadly in more recent times both of our countries have been too reliant on cheap imported goods from the far east. It is therefore refreshing to have had a very handsome belt made in the US by an American artisan, quality will always prevail, and I send you my sincere thanks.
today I received the belt.
When I was the first time on your website and I read your statement about
your belts, I said to myself: these guys must have either a strong self confidence or
they have a really outstanding product. You must know that I wear Ranger Belts nearly my
whole life. In the past I got the belts from El Paso Saddlery and Mernickle. They have also
good products, but today I would say, yours are a bit ( that means much ) better and you can
rightly have a strong self confidence by such a remarkable quality.
It was a pleasure to deal with you and I come back to you soon with a new order.
this wallet is a lovely.
Nice doing business with you.
The belt arrived a few days ago. It looks terrific and fits perfectly.
Thanks for the quick service and the excellent craftsmanship.
got it, and it is beautiful!! Excellent quality and workmanship. I make custom shaving brushes and saw someone bragging about your work on one of the shaving forums. I appreciate such quality workmanship and I pride myself with excellent workmanship on my items.
Soon I will have another one made in the lighter shade!
I just received the small ponderosa wallet and the belt, and they are absolutely fascinating. The wallet is in perfect thickness and size in my pocket, the leather of both wallet and belt feels awesome, very smooth. They Are easily the best leather items I've ever had.
Wanted to let you know that I received the Ranger belt that I ordered in yesterday's mail. Bill, it is the best looking belt I have ever seen and owned. Your workmanship is just amazing, and I will treasure this fine example of your talent in leatherwork. Thanks!
Ashley "Lee" Hendley
I received my new Ranger belt this afternoon, and WOW, I'm in love ! This is so nice, and I've never owned a belt before that felt already broken in when I first put it on either. This Bridle leather is really top notch, to say nothing of such fine workmanship with focus on detail too.
I'm so impressed, and proud to own such a fine example of what good leather craft is, and should be, to say nothing of the fact that it's made right here in the USA too !
I'm one happy camper, and it won't be long before I order another one, besides sharing my good fortune on a number of forum that I visit on a near daily basis, and things like this type of workmanship and value for a great price is what we talk about and share our finds. I expect you'll get more orders from folks I know on these two or three forums.
Thanks again so much, I just couldn't be more impressed and pleased with this purchase I made from you all, and will be singing your praises where ever I can too !!
Your lifetime new customer, with more order to follow for sure,
this is the bestest garrison belt Ive owned. The leather is the right thickness which doesn't weigh a ton like Red Moon, Ironheart and Kc's which Ive all owned. Best
Just received the belt. Fantastic! Another very satisfied customer.
My second order with Leather Goods Connection and probably won't be the last! The workmanship cannot be beat!
I just received the black belt that you made for my "Sunday Best" holster. I could not be more pleased. It is perfect in every way. Size,color,grain pattern and EDGE TREATMENT. I can tell that you took special care in producing this belt for me and I want to let you know that I appreciate every aspect of your workmanship.
Sincerely a new fan,
Another great belt. Thanks so much.
Now I have to figure out a premise for ordering a third belt
even though I don't need one...
Thanks again for all your help,
The black dress belt arrived today and fits and looks PERFECT! You really are a talented craftsman.
I hope to do more business with you soon.
Just wanted to say thank you again for the wallet which I previously ordered. Given that I'm all the way in Aus, the shipping was more than acceptable.
The quality of the wallet is great, far superior to anything you could buy off a shelf here. I love the texture of the leather and how it easily slides in out out of your pocket, one of those things which makes life a lot easier.
The interior of the wallet is great too, being leather and not some other material. Hope it lasts me many years! Did I also mention it's a damn sexy wallet?
Thank you very much for creating this beautiful Ladies Wallet! It is everything that I hoped for, and more! The leather is wonderful and the gold initials inside add a classic yet beautiful touch! Iï¿½m a woman who has more than a few designer handbags in her closet (no knockoffs) but wanted a wallet that I can use all the time, transferring from handbag to handbag. And I wanted a wallet made in the USA, if at all possible. Wouldnï¿½t you know I came upon your great website and there it was ï¿½ the wallet I wanted! And the workmanship is outstanding! Thank you very much again!
Got the belt today. Very nice! Excellent value and quality. Couldn't be more pleased. Bookmarked and will recommend to others!

Just got the light-brown dress belt and it is exactly what I wanted. Super nice quality!
I just ordered a black one with a different buckle treatment.
My order came in the mail today. I think both belts are the best I've ever had. I wish more people would buy American made products from expert craftsmen like you. Thank you for the great products and I really appreciate your customer service. Made in the USA and customer service are almost extinct concepts these days. Thanks for doing what you do!
I have just received my belt and just want to thank you. It is
absolutely beautiful and I am thrilled with it. The detail and care
you have taken to make it are a sight to behold. Thank you so much. I
absolutely love it.
By far the best leather belt I have ever bought. I can really tell that true love and pride went into making this belt. I got what I paid for, and more...
Nice belts! You can buy belts from China or Mexico a lot cheaper, and you get what you pay for. Quality belts last, adapt to fit your body, and get better looking with age. Cheap belts last (if you're lucky) maybe one year, good leather lasts for decades. BTW I have no connection with these guys, I just like their belts.
Got the belts a couple of hours ago, absolutely love em. (these are the Bridle Leather) I thought the first one (harness leather) was nice, these two are fantastic. They are better than the one I had years ago. The bridle leather is unbelievably nice. The guy at work can't believe how nice his is.(he bought Harness)
I wish everything I bought was of such outstanding quality. Thank you very much and I'm sure this will not be my last order.
I received the belt this week and love it already. I really appreciate your quality work and craftsmanship! Thank you!
I got your belt in the mail today, it is beautiful. I had a belt like this back in the early '70's and my son later on took it and wore it out. I have been looking for this style for a long time. Thanks for the quick service.
Just wanted to say thanks a lot for the belt. Everything you said it
would be it is. The natural back is perfect, just like you said it
would be. It looks great, smells great, sounds great, and I really
Thanks a lot,
Thank you for the wallet, it is exactly what I was looking for. When I showed it to my father, he said he would look into your wallets as well for himself.
Directions for measuring to ensure the correct size belt were right on. The belt fits perfect. Appears to be very well made! Thanks!
The belt is excellent:
Workmanship is excellent.
Leather is excellent .
Quality of leather is excellent.
Buckle is excellent.
Style is excellent.
Stitching is excellent.
Dye is excellent.
It is too bad I did not discover Leather Goods
Connection sooner as I would not have to
throw away so many inferior belts.
The belt arrived today and it is beautiful! I am happy to present it to my dad as his birthday gift!
G'day, I received my wallet today and I am very impressed with the quality of manufacture, everything about it is just right...it's a bloody bewdy mate.
I will definately be recommending your services to anyone I know here in Oz needing quality leather products.
I would like to compliment you, and your Company, for the unbelievable fast turn around on this order, but more importantly the end result - the product - far exceeded my expectations.
I can't wait to get into my jeans, and show it off. I may not replace belts as fast as shirts, but I now find I have a source for better than what is offered on the rack in my size.
It's been 2.75 years since I bought my leather wallet from you. It is, by far, the nicest leather item I've ever owned. The credit card slots have been overloaded at times, yet there has been no tearing, and no overstretching. It's a great pleasure to buy from a small team of people rather than a sweatshop overseas. If I ever become wealthy, I'll buy 2 of everything you guys make.
Thank you for all you do.
Bill, got the belt today. Outstanding. Will be ordering again. Thanks.
Received the wallet today. Stellar craftsmanship. Look forward to purchasing more of your goods. Thanks, Henry.
Really awesome quality. I ordered a belt and liked it so much that I ordered a wallet. That was excellent also. I had questions and they were promptly answered by email.
Wallet arrived. Kind of like when I was young and waiting for the city bus, and waiting...waiting... so I light a cigarette and as soon as I light it the bus turns the corner and arrives.
Your still running 100% on deliveries.
(shipped to Canada)
Hi Larry I got home on Sunday and saw the belt for the first time its beautiful just no other way to describe it. I was a manufacturing engineer for 6 years for JBL the speaker company and program manager for hewlett packard for 2 years and have been directly involved in the manufacturing processes and quality processes. I was also an old school sheet metal mecha nic for 10 years where we worked with stainless and copper as well as galvinized sheet metal back when all miters and seams were hand soldered hand cut and installed so I consider my opinion to be that of a trained professional . Your customer service was exceptional your craftsmanship was exceptional and above reproach and finaly your quality processes are excellent . I know I will be enjoying this belt and the other products I order from you for a life time thanks again. Scotte
It is tough to find good leather belts now days. Your arrived today
and they are great.
Thank you for keeping good craftsmanship alive.
I just received the belt. The fit is perfect and the craftsmanship is
excellent. It's really hard it is to find a simple unpretentious belt at
retail these days, so I am glad I found your site. I will definitely be
buying my belts from you in the future. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Thanks Got my belt today. OUTSTANDING! This is the kind of American leather
work I used to get years ago and thought was lost until now. Definitely will
order in the future and pass along site to friends.
I ordered the black Bridle Leather Belt 1 3/4 with the Garrison Solid Brass Buckle. It is an overwhelming Quality and a brilliant handcraft. It is awesome, to manufacture a quality Belt like this for that less money. Your service, including your friendly communication and your fast shipment to Germany is outstanding! I know, where to order in future...
Greetings from Germany, Barry
I got my belt and I sent already my comment to you..... O V E R W H E L M I N G!
It looks authentic like the Clint Eastwood Pants Belt. Why you don't put that typ with a description like,
"Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Western Pants Belt" at your Homepage. A lot of people are looking for that!
And your work is better than even the original!!!!
I received your belt Saturday. Thank you for the excellent craftsmanship; quality and good looks certainly a first class product! I will order another in a little while.
Dear Henry, Thank you for answering all my questions about the hand stitched wallet, I ordered it for my nephew. When we got it we could not believe how this was all put together, I am sure it will last him quite a while. Thank You again for all the great products and I am sure I will be ordering one for myself In the future!!!! Stephen
Need I say more OUTSTANDING!!! I just received my 2nd Ponderosa in a month. These things are GREAT!!! My 1st one was the smaller 10-4A in Calf Skin ( That's my Sunday go meeting to Wallet ) and now the 10-3A in the Black Oak Stained ( My Work Wallet ). The quality of your work is nothing short of OUTSTANDING!!! I have had many people ask me about the 10-4A, and I've sent them to your web-site. Most people I know are WOWED by the style and the High Quality Workmanship, I just feel so lucky that I found your site. Like I said before I have a new belt in my very near future and will be sending my business your way. Thank you again and don't stop doing what you do.
Va. Beach, Va.
Henry, I really like my new Working Man's Wallet. It simply feels and looks like a quality handmade wallet should. Great craftsmanship and a simple design.
The belt arrived and it's PERFECT!
I'm very pleased with your service. Your belt is a very high quality and i really enjoy them. Please don't stop making this piece of art.
Just wanted to say I had received my belt and am very pleased with it indeed.
Thanks very much.
I just received my belt today (had it shipped from the States to Singapore,
hence the delay).
The belt is gorgeous, the craftsmanship amazing.
I'm looking forward to many good years of wear, and will be sure to
patronize your store in the future.
Thanks so much,
Just got my wallet today ( Small Ponderosa with Zipper ) OUTSTANDING!!! I have to be honest with you I love everything about it, but I'm going to make a small change ( A Personal one ). I have a custom made Sterling Silver wallet chain which I'm going to put on the wallet. Since I don't have a Good camera ( Just the one on my cell-phone) I'm going to have a friend come over with her fancy digital and I'm going to get a few pics and down-load them so you can see what I've put together. I hope you think that I've done some justice to your OUTSTANDING!!! leather-work. I have a new belt in my near future and I'll be sending my business your way. Thank you for all your hard work.
I received the belt today and it is perfect.
Larry, I got the belt today. This one is a perfect fit. I'm on the
middle hole with the amount of snugness I like and the tip is just
through the first belt loop like I wanted. Thanks a lot for the help in
getting it right.
Just picked up the wallets today (I had been away). Super! Thank you very much, couldnï¿½t be happier.
Thanks, Bill - you're the greatest. I love wearing your belts. Total quality look and feel.
Received the wallet-thank you!
You must pass along my compliments to whomever made this-it is spectacular! The half-dollar accent on the keeper, and the buffalo nickel (that I knew about) is awesome, and the build quality is fantastic. I have a Red Moon full size wallet, but wanted something smaller for daily carry-this is excellent, and had I known about you guys, would have chosen to order from you in the first place. Far more options, and a better product, in my opinion.
Thanks very much for a very satisfactory ordering experience.
Everything went as smoothly as possible, and I have to say that the Ranger
belt I received has to be the most beautiful belt I've seen in a long, long
In fact, I wore it to work the very next day after I received it and
found a number of young ladies in my freshman comp class admiring my
midsection, which, as I'm pushing 60, hasn't happened in quite a while. I
ordered another belt the next day.
The wallet arrived and it is beautiful.
Thanks so much.
I received the belt today. Looks great! You can bet Iï¿½ll order the next one from you.
Received my wallet yesterday. All I can say is, "Wow!" The wallet exceeded my expectations...absolutely amazing work!
Hands down the best wallet I have ever owned. Thank you for your attention to detail, quality materials and such prompt service! You rock!!
Henry, i just wanted you to know that due to the great products and service you have provided me in the past I recently ordered two more belts. I was a bit surprise that someone else (Bill) filled the order but the belts are great.
The Ranger Belt that you made for me, I love it. Thank you very much.
Just wanted to follow up to let you know that I received my wallet shortly after ordering it and have been enjoying it!
Well made product (belt). I'm wearing it every day with my jeans.
This is the second belt that I have ordered from this company. I highly recommend their product.
Just a note to inform you that I have received my belt and am very pleased with it. Exactly what I was expecting and very high quality. Thank you very much for your promptness and attention to detail.
I am seriously thinking about buying another belt in the very near future
Again Thank You very much.
I got one of your double ring belts as a gift from my parents for Christmas: tan with brass rings, 1.5". Wanted to write to tell you that I absolutely love it.
In an age when craft and trade seem to be clinging on for dear life in the mind of the average American consumer, having access to products made with care by craftsmen with a desire to perpetuate these all-too-often overlooked hallmarks of the consumer experience is such a treat. I noticed that my dad pinned your shipping note above his desk. Just wanted to make sure you know these little perks don't go unnoticed.
I hope I never need another belt as long as I live. But if I do I'll be in touch.
I now have received two Harness Leather belts (one medium brown and one black) made by you. They both look great with contrasting stitching and your #1 buckles.
They look like they should cost twice their selling prices with rich looking leather finish and solid buckles. The stitching is flawless and the belts fit exactly right following your directions. Keep up the good work. Cliff
When I lost a favorite belt while on vacation last summer I did not want to replace it with a department store belt. I searched the internet for a good handmade belt maker and thankfully I discovered Henry at Leather Goods Connection.com. I have now purchased three belts from Henry this year. To sum up my experience I can truly say that nowhere, at no price will you find a better belt. Henry is a craftsman that takes pride in his trade and makes a top notch product out of the finest materials with many wonderful options to choose from. He also has a very quick turnaround time. I will certainly not hesitate to order from him again in the future.
Hi,Larry,I received belt and it,s a work of art.I should of ordered a 38 inch at center hole because I wear a 36 inch waist jean.I said 37 belt but nevertheless I am wearing it in the second hole from the end and it,s fine.I especially like the double chicago screws instead of one and the way it lays flat.Also the tip of the belt is finished round which is a nice neat look as opposed to other leathercraft craftsman that just cut off the corners.You also don,t skimp on the buckle its a good solid piece not like other flimsy buckles you see out there.Overall I,m very satisfied and will be ordering again from you in the not so distant future.Sincerely Kevin
Thank you for your message and thank you for your customary great service. I have received the belt and it is beautiful! My Brother will truly enjoy his Christmas.
Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
All the best,
Thank you for sending my belt so quickly. It is absolutely beautiful. I love the craftsmanship, color - everything about it.
I will be ordering another belt at some point. I just need to decide what I want.
Henry--I received the belt. This is my second purchase from you and I am again quite pleased with the price, quality and service. I will be a return customer again. Thanks, -Alex
This is just to say that I'm very happy with the two belts that I ordered recently. I can't believe that I had been paying $30 for imported belts that consisted of a paper-thin strip of leather glued onto a composition base that cracked, split and separated within a couple of months. Your belts are sturdy and handsome, and I'm sure they will last for many years. Thanks!
I'm sorry to see (on your website) that you cannot provide shoulder bags at this time. I use shoulder bags, and have been getting along with merchandise as unsatisfactory as my previous belts. I would be interested in looking at your options, if and when you are able to resume supplying these bags.
Thanks again for the fine belts.
Got it this past Monday, just now had a chance to have a close look at it. Excellent work. It is a replacement, well a newer belt for one I've had for years and is a little worn in.
I got the belt on Friday. It looks and fits great. I appreciate the great work and I'll be back to you the next time I need a belt. I'll recommend you as well. Thanks again.
Arrived yesterday...nice wallet. Always a pleasure to find a product made in the USA. Thank you!
The wallets I ordered are gorgeous. I smile every time I take it out of my pocket, which says something, cause usually I'm paying for something so I shouldn't be smiling.
I have had my two harness belts one black and one brown for several months now and cannot believe I have gone without these quality belts for so long. The workmanship is superb and the fit is perfect. I have passed on your site info to many people who have asked about where I purchased these belts. It is nice to get what you pay for a change.
I just picked up my belt at the post office this morning. I had a notice it was here Sat but I missed the mailman when he was here. It is absolutely gorgeous ! The best looking & feeling ranger belt I've seen ! Even better than the ones I remember seeing from M. L. Leddy's in San Angelo, Texas as a kid ! I WILL recommend you to all my friends !! Thanks again,
Henry, thank you! Shipped Friday, arrived Saturday.
I made a good choice: you make a fine wallet, better than I'd imagined.
The leather is beautiful. I look forward to enjoying this for many years.
It swallowed up all my cards and is still slim enough to slide easily into my front pants pocket. I have your site bookmarked and will be picking out a belt next: so many choices!
I received the two belts from you; a Dress Belt for wear with a suit, and a Ranger Belt for casual wear.
I was a bit anxious, ordering an unexamined belt online from an unknown source.
The quality of the leather in these belts - Harness leather for one, Bridle leather for the other - is great. The workmanship is terrific and should be a source of pride for the craftsman.
Your communication, both before the order was placed and after the belts were made, was excellent and timely. These belts were shipped long before expected and arrived remarkably quickly. I am thrilled.
Typically, I find a couple of belts I like and wear them for years until theyï¿½re shot.. I expect to change my ways. You can expect more of my business.
Thank all of you,
Bill - I've been wearing your belt for a few days now, and it's perfect! I've had this beautiful Chet Vogt silver buckle for years, always living on cheap, crappy belts... Now, I think, it's found a home. I'll be back for more. Thanks again, Mike
Hi Bill -
The belt arrived today and it's AWESOME!!!!! REALLY gorgeous! Wow. Perfect craftsmanship. I can't stop looking at it.
Now I want another one, this time a bit darker in color - I'm sticking my order in after I send this e-mail. I think this one was a 41". That's the size I need again (assuming it is).
Thanks a million. Really pleased (as always, but THIS one really stands out)
Belt received yesterday, and it is super! Just what I wanted. Thank you!
The belt I purchased is beautiful!!! The website had great instructions on ordering the perfect belt, and I received my purchase in less than a week. This belt is such high quality, so much better than any other belt I own, and at a price that is unbeatable. I will definitely be ordering again from them.
Just came! What a wallet! Thanks!
Got the belt and it even exceeds my expectations. Particularly like the way you secure the buckle. Thanks for the Keeper"!!
I would like to public recognize how helpful and considerate you were in responding to my queries and facilitating payment and shipment to Ireland. It was absolutely first class service and very re-assuring. The belt arrived and it is very good, and I have no hesitation in recommending you Leather Goods to anybody, particularly International customers.
I just wanted to let you know that I received the bridle leather belt I ordered last week today and it is as beautiful as it is functional. This belt is every bit the piece I was imagining when I came across the LGC website a while back. It makes me happy and more than a little bit proud to be able to support a craftsman working here in the USA and I thank you for making that possible. Best of luck in your business and I'll be pointing you out to my friends and coming back for anything I need in the future.
It arrived today and is proudly sitting in my rear pocket. I have to say that the quality of the workmanship and the speed of delivery is unsurpassed. It truly is a lovely piece of work, I'm delighted.
HI Henry and Larry-
I received my belt and wanted to let you know how beautiful it is! The design came out exactly as I had pictured it. It is a wonderful piece of art, and you are true craftsmen. Thank you so much.
I received my belt, on Saturday. I love it!! This thing is huge! I sure am happy that my mom didn't have anything like this around, when I was a kid! The only complaint I have is, that it doesn't fit my work britches (thatï¿½s southern for "pants"), that well. Not a problem though, I'm going to order a 5 strand braided belt, to wear to work. I am also thinking about ordering a dress belt and maybe a wallet. Do you by chance, have the ability to burn, brand, or tool in emblems? If so, the emblem I am looking for is the Masonic Square and Compasses. I think that would look good on a wallet.
Thanks again for the belt, I have a feeling I will be wearing it for a very long time!
I've just received the belt - I'm very happy with the construction and
design. Thank you very much! Now that my wife has seen it, I'm on the
hook for next payday to get one for her also.
Thanks again, Michael
Got the wallet. Great wallet.
Received the belt. I've been wearing it for a few days now. Beautiful work. I couldn't be happier with the fit and finish. Thanks so much.
Thank you very much for sending the wallet + the note + the cent...
The gift was a total success with a lot of excitement and laughing through the distance...
I'm wearing the belt for the first time today. It is beautiful! I'm recommending your work to everyone I know.
It's here and it's PERFECT, Larry! Thanks a million, my friend.
You run a business very professionally as it SHOULD be run. Kudos to you.
I'll be a return customer, hands down.
Mark Polis, M.D.
I am happy with the purchase!
and I'm using it right now. : )
I got my belt yesterday. It fits well and looks great (the girlfriend said so). Thanks for being the only person who makes serious belts, in the USA out of quality leather. I will pass your name on to my friends who needs to keep their pants from falling down.
Hello again Larry
Just to let you know that the belt arrived safely this morning.
Thanks very much - I'm going to really enjoy wearing it. I'll send you a picture of it when I've worn it for a year or so...
Thanks for the wallet, it arrived last week. Great stuff. Ross.
Bill: I received the belt today and all I can say is...awesome! Thank you! It would be impossible to find this belt in a store. I'll be placing another order from a brown belt soon--just need to decide what I want first. Thank you!
I recieved the belt you made for me and I like it very much, great job. It is a beautiful piece of leather you chose to use - perfect, excellent workmansship, and it works very well with my Crossbreed IWB holster. The metal clips on the IWB Crossbreed holster will take a maxium of 1.5" belt - so the 1.25" belt you made is excellent. The Belt leather thickness, that you made the belt out of, is perfect thickness for jeans and the Crossbreed holster metal clips. The basket weave pattern is very nice and I'm glad I ordered belt with the basket weave design in it. it makes the belt much more classy than plain leather without giving up any utility of the belt. It fits but I should have ordered it 1.5" longer, it'll keep me on my Physical Training routine! which is a good thing. So, thanks again Bill, for the great work and a great belt.
Larry they are perfect, beautiful, and I will be ordering more for christmas and birthdays so keep you eye out.
thank you so much.
The belt arrived today. It's wonderful, exactly what I wanted. It's as nice or in fact nicer than the ones from certain high end retail outlets that I've checked out. Will not hesitate to recommend your services to others. Thanks a lot. Ross.
My new black double ring belt arrived in the mail today.
It's terrific, nice leather and workmanship and it arrived in the blink of an eye.I have a feeling I am going to need a brown one real soon!
thanks for the latest belt. Thats 3 belts and a ponderosa small wallet so far ! I've posted a pic of the belts for all to see on a forum i use.
the buckles on the top 2 belts have been distressed by me and the tan belt has had a buckle from a woman Gap belt added.
got the belt and it is really great workmanship. thanks for the quick service and excellent product. -nate larsen.

Thank you so much!
Have a great day!

I picked up the belts on Saturday and Iï¿½m very happy with them ï¿½ great quality/craftsmanship as usual.
Thanks again for sending me both belts ï¿½ I appreciate it.
The wallet arrived today, safe and sound. I'm very pleased with it and it's not as stiff in the leather as I expected, which is a good thing. It's also very nice to wear and not as bulky as all other wallets that I've owned through the years. The belt loop with the detailed indian head snap just adds to its nice looks. The craftsmanship is a 100%. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to other customers looking for top quality traditional handmade leather.
I also like your thorough packaging, not all goods bought across the pond arrive like that.
Double thumbs up from Norway... Enjoy the rest of the summer.
I received my wallet yesterday, and I just have to say that the quality of product is just as good as you told on the website. My wallet is just perfect and I love it already. Now I just have to wear it in, so it'll look like _my_ wallet. It feels really sturdy and durable for a long time use. Thanks again for the great product and great service!
I just wanted to let you know that I received my new belt and it is perfect! Thanks much for everything. You can be assured that I will be a life long customer!
Just a note to say thanks very much. The belt arrived today and Iï¿½m truly impressed with itï¿½a fine piece of leather work, and a perfect fit. Nice to know that there are still craftsmen such as yourself left in this country. Well done.
Just thought you might like to see the working mans wallet I bought a few years and how this thing is the best wallet I have owned. It has been through some tough days and still has not ripped or come apart anywhere. This is a top quality piece of workmanship and a pride to carry. I have other wallets from your company but this is the one I carry daily and will for years to come. Thanks again for quality products and much continued success. Feel free to use these pictures as you please by the way!!
Thank you very much. I really love your work and I know this sounds a bit funny but being able to find the right belt for me in any large store is nearly impossible. You offer quality, artwork and comfort worth every penny to me.
I got the package in the mail this morning, everything looks great and my ID card fits perfectly in the wallet.
I'm really happy with the quality of both item. Thanks again for the shipping in france.
Received the belt today. Excellent cut, color and finish. The #6 brass buckle is impressive as well. American craftsmanship is alive and well at your firm. Thank you for your talents - I hope to send some business your way soon.
I just received the belt I ordered from you (only 8 days from order to receipt). Arrived exactly as requested and the quality and craftsmanship is excellent. I wear the same belt every day with jeans and usually go thru 2 or 3 "store bought" belts a year due to poor quality, so based on the quality of your belt I would guess my daily cost to wear a belt will be cheaper in the long run. Plus the new belt looks better than the "store bought" ones. Thank you and I will definitely order from you again and recommend you to others.
My calf skin #3 wallet is a little over a year old and looks brand new. You make quality leather goods and have very personal service.
I cannot wait to receive my new wallet.
Just received my belt, and it is a beauty.
Thanks so much for the obvious care that went into it, especially with my custom request.
My two belts arrived late today and they are way beyond what I had hoped for. Absolutely splendid comes to mind quickly to detail a bit about my thoughts and reaction about their quality and the creativity factor, in having deciphered my cryptic outline from several days ago. Nicely done ... Nicely done, indeed!
The Leather Goods Connection is now bookmarked and has become my go-to source for all kinds of leather goodies from now on. Iï¿½ve long thought of a unique, larger, fourteen-inch laptop sized carrier sleeve unit that says the kid of quality that I see in your Leather Goods Connection pieces while without even hinting at the possible contents. Iï¿½ll draw it up and get it off to you for analysis and see if and how we might best proceed. And then thereï¿½s the handmade Indian belt buckle that my sweet wife needs a belt to attach it to. Iï¿½ll get that off as well.
Again Bill, thanks to you and the rest of the Leather Goods Connection crew. I am very happy and quite proud of my two new belts. The Inca design on the larger belt is such a nice touch and the new dress belt with the changeable belt buckle screw-posts is magnificent. You do beautiful work.
I received the belt last night. It fits great and looks beautiful. Great work.
My husband LOVES the leather dress belt. He wanted a 1" width and couldn't find one at LL Bean or Lands End. At first I was intimidated by the measuring instructions, but it was very easy and actually makes more sense than just measuring the waistline. The leather and the workmanship are truly superb. It's very nice getting a well-made product. SPECIAL REQUEST: Please, please resume making handbags. I have one tote and one designer #4 and I cherish them. I'm dying to get a new bag!
Returned from travel on Sunday and the belt had arrived.
It is awesome! Great workmanship and materials. Color was perfect as was
the style. Best of all, my wife fully approves!
The belts arrived today, and I must say, you've certainly lived up to your
reputation! I'll be placing an order for another two belts shortly!
Thank you very much,
Belt received yesterday. Wonderful job, great leather, super craftsmanship. Did I mention very timely? Yeah, that, too. Can't beat it. Thanks very much.
Belt turned out very nice. Good job.
Thank you so much for my new ponderosa wallet, absolutely outstanding quality, just what I expected. Thank you.
today we get the wallets!
Oh Man, awesome work! every day waiting was worth it!
i'm really happy because they came to the right time, 4th of june is my birthday!!!!
it need so long time to get them, because of the Washington Convention CITES, and yes my country charges duty! SO thanks for everything, and i think this was not our last business!!
With best Regards
I LOVE the wallet you made for me. It's exactly what I hoped for. Thanks.
i buy many things from internet vendors.
you are absolutely the best! in products and
service you have no peer.
thank you very much.
Early on this day I received my ranger belt in good order. I knew the belt would be beautiful, but the result was beyond all expectations. Very good quality and very well crafted. My complements. Itï¿½s worth every penny.
On till next order,
I love this wallet. Great craftsmanship. The people Iï¿½ve have had seen it said it will last forever. Great job.
Thank you for my belt the color is a very close match to my holster and it holds everything tight. Very nice work.
Thank you so much for my wallet, I am really pleased with the excellent quality and speed of service ( I received it in 7 days from order, even here on the other side of the planet...!) Best of luck to you and yours...
Just received the belt. It is stunning, just so damn handsome and a man's belt, sophisticated but rugged. Love the creak of the harness leather when the strands of the weave move. This is the best belt I have ever seen let alone owned. Thanks for such care in making it. I could not be more pleased.
Thanks again for the really fantastic belt.
Thank you for the message, and the reduced rate! Let me just take the opportunity to say that the belt you made for me is of the very finest quality, and will certainly last me for years to come. In a lapse of attention, I recently allowed one of the Chicago screws to work its way loose and fall off in some unknown place; hence the re-order. How wonderful that you also sell belt-related supplies at reasonable rates. I have no doubt I will continue to buy your leatherworks in future.
Bill, I received the belts today; they are beautiful! I am already wearing the tan Ranger. Itï¿½s perfect. I will probably wear the black one tomorrow. Thanks for the craftsmanship!
I received my buffalo calfskin wallet in the #1 style this morning. It is very well crafted, and the medium brown stain is really nice, almost an oxblood look and is true to the image on your website. I find it an elegant wallet that is totally suitable for dress up use. I do like the fact that it has no fabric or synthetic material but is just leather. The wallet is supple right out of the box and the inside sueded face of the leather is very soft. Really nice.
I also got the 1 3/4 inch harness belt with the basket weave and scalloped edge stamping and black stitching in black. The nice nice nickle plated brass buckle goes with it well and I like the two keeper loops that goe with it and are also stamped and stitched. The back up nickel plated brass keepers allow me to change up the look and the chicago screws add to the quality of the belt and give me flexibility to change buckles. I have not had it off since I got it (except for sleeping). Really like the width and the meatiness of this 1 3/4" harness leather belt. It is really well made and quite handsome.
Arrived earlier today. Great job, I really appreciate the quick turnaround on such a quality product!
Belts look and fit perfect, I'm glad I found your site, I have been looking
for a wider belt ever since I out grew my old western belt years ago. It is
hard to find a belt wide enough to fit the old buckles and look good with
jeans. I will definitely order from you again.
Belt was here when I got home. Just ordered it last Friday & today is Friday one week for a quality belt like this you guys are fantastic. Will be ordering another one ASAP.
If the WI shop does the job that you did on my recent black 1 3/4" stitched, basket and scalloped belt I will be more than happy. Really loved the texture of the 7 strand weave on your site. I did have a three stand back in the early seventies. The larger number of strangs really makes it a sophisticated jeans belt.
Look forward to the wallet to. I have a growning collection of your belts, 6 with the seven strand.
The work belt I ordered as a gift for my brother Christophe arrived at his home in France in perfect condition ! Chris really is ever so happy with this belt : he is a "connoisseur" of well-made objects, being a very fine craftsman himself (in quite a different field, though).
He told me his personal buckle fits perfectly, the size is perfect, the color (black with wheat stitching) most beautiful, the leather, stitchings and craftmanship of very high quality.
I'll be sure to order other items from you soon, among which a belt too, with garrison buckle. I know I'm not a very good client (no big orders !), but I really appreciate your work.
Thanks also for the very efficient shipping service,
Best regards, Thierry
Belt arrived today. The quality and craftmanship of the belt are exceptional. It is everything that I hoped for. Many thanks.
The wallet exceeded my expectations. I look forward to doing business
with you again.
Thank you Bill the belt is incredible. Fits like a glove and looks beautiful. Thank you again for your work. Noel
Henry ï¿½ Just received the belt. It is awesome! Thank you.
Got the belt yesterday...You are a true craftsman. Your work should be the benchmark that others should try to achieve.
Good Afternoon Henry,
My new wallet landed today in the UK and I am super pleased with it, the studs are just excellent too and really set it off, when I spotted it on your website it had my name written all over it!! I have been busy filling it up with all the stuff from my old wallet over a nice cup of tea!
It really is lovely, and I should think it will be with me for a very long time, eveything about it is excellent, and I just wanted to let you know :)
Best wishes from the UK
I'm a first time customer and want to congratulate you on your highly effective and informative web site. It caused me to decide not to go 'Coach' this time but first class!
Just received my belt. Beautiful! Fits perfectly! Will highly recommend you craftsmanship.
Just got it. Wow! Really fine work. This is a birthday present for my Dad, he will be pleased. I'm going to be ordering one of these belts for myself...Thank you!
Bill, the belts came yesterday and they are perfect, the workmanship is amazing. Thank you so much.
Hi Bill............... Received my belt yesterday. What a great looking belt!!! Fits like a glove. Really a great piece of work. Best I have ever seen. Thanks again..
I've been meaning to send a note to thank you for the great work you did on my belt. It looks great and the buckle set (#3) is even nicer than I expected from the pictures on your site. You will hear from me again!
Received the belt yesterday that I ordered for my husband. Spent more for a belt than we ever have, but it is worth every penny. He is delighted with it. Just keeps saying, "Its sure a nice belt". Thanks again. Glad we found your web site. Will use you again.
Bill/Henry, belt arrived safely today ï¿½ itï¿½s even more beautiful than I imagined it would be. Thank you so much.
Kind regards, Ian
Hello all, just though I'd drop you a line to let you know that my wallet arrived safe and sound today.
The wallet looks amazing and is exactly what I was looking for.
Thank you so much, all the best
Hi Henry --
Receieved my Ponderosa wallet yesterday, just five days after I ordered it. Incredible. The wallet is absolutely beautiful, and the craftmanship is superb.
As you know, I purchased the West Coast wallet last year, but after using it for a few months I wanted something a little bit bigger. I was really pleased with the West Coast wallet so I felt pretty confident ordering a second wallet from you.
Boy, was I surprised. This wallet is beautiful, and I have no doubt it will last me many, many years.
Thank you so much.
Great product, great price, and great service.
HENRY RECIEVED THE WALLET TODAY AND IT IS GREAT. THANKS AGAIN AND LOOK FORWARD TO DO BUSINESS AGAIN. MATIAS
I got it in the mail today! Very pleased with the belt, thanks :)
Just so you know, the mail in the Netherlands is all delivered by http://www.tnt.com/. A international postal service similar to UPS. Shipping to the Netherlands is just as safe as to any ConUS area.
Your leather work is exceptional .I am really enjoying all the compliments I am receiving on my belt. I will be ordering again in the futureï¿½ Kind regards
Mr. Henry, I received my belt, you are a Artist, now I am trying to decide which Wallet I want, I am leaning at the Working Man Wallet. Thank You, Respectfully,
The belt arrived, very quickly and looking great. I expect I will be placing another order soon.
Received my wallet and extra leather lanyard today ï¿½ beautiful workmanship, exceeded my expectations. Just wanted to say thanks.
This is the second order placed with this business. Both orders were handled professionally and the delivery was speedy. The products ordered met or exceeded my expectations. LeatherGoodsConnection.com is a great company to do business with.
I received my belt today and it exceeds my expectations. The color is
perfect, much better than it looks on the computer.
Just wanted to take a minute to tell you I am absolutely delighted with my new belt. Thank you for the time and effort you put into creating it. The fit, workmanship and quality leather is everything I could have asked for. I will be placing additional orders, so I look forward to adding several new items to my wardrobe soon.
I just thought I would write to you after getting my wallet today. It is by far the nicest wallet I have ever owned. In the past I have bought the same size leather wallets that are found in western stores. They have had conches on them and the conch have always torn off. I am very happy with the workmanship on this wallet. Now I can replace my inferior wallet.
Hi Henry, my belt came today. Nice job, I am very pleased and the clasp for my pocket watch slides right over the leather without any problem.
The wallet is very well made. The leather is strong, well tanned and handsome.
The most impressive part of the wallet is the stitching, which is well above
average. The internals are made of strong leather and holds up, unlike cheaper
wallets with wimpy liners and card holders that crack or cut. Overall the
quality is great and the price is reasonable, I am well satisfied.
Belts arrived yesterday. Thank you for the excellent work,
Excellent workmanship and great leather. Thank-you
Just to confirm that the belt arrived safely this week. I must say, I'm certainly not disappointed, the workmanship is superb. I'll be ordering more in due course.
My wallet arrived Saturday, my old wallet, a fossil I used for 3 years, was emptied within minutes after I opened the priority envelope. I have never owned a quality wallet, I would pick one up at the store with out thinking about it too much.
I wanted to buy a wallet made in the US, I did a google search and found you. The craftsmanship is excellent, it already feels at home in my pocket.
hello again, Bill,
Just got the belts and I'm very pleased. First class handwork and a thoughtful design ... I especially like the way you hold back the double thickness away from the buckle area.
Terrific. Thanks very much.
I remember that you said most people are sick of their handbags after two years or they start to look shabby. I am guessing that mine must be about five years old now.
I still love the various compartments and especially going for the light pigskin lining with the black dove exterior. It is still an amazing thing to be able to get inside and FIND what I am looking for. The waist and shoulder strap are still in great shape despite loading it down. I left it at church once and the deacon asked me why I needed to bring a suitcase for a couple of hours away from home.
It does not look shabby in the least and I am not tired of it. Furthermore, I have noticed that some of the backpack makers are putting light linings in their packs so people can find their laptop chords and accessories. We were just a bit ahead of the game. I guess that between us we have created a unique collector's item if you can't get those leather colors anymore.
I have attended a couple of craft shows and leather people immediately want to know where I got my bag. Then they want to inspect it. Then they comment about the exquisite workmanship and the pigskin lining. When I guess what year it was made, they say they don't think they could have made the bag for that price even back then. If I am in a hurry, I have learned to take a cheap little fanny pack.
Thank you for sharing your expertise with others so that this craftmanship can be carried on.
A bit late, but I did want to write and say I did receive the belt in a
manner, and it is EXACTLY what I wanted. Thanks for your concern and great
The belt arrived this week and It is just what I wanted,exceptional quality as was the previous one you made for me.
I think its coming up on a year or so since I bought my wallet from you (calfskin natural unfinished). Itï¿½s aging beautifully and not a stitch is out of place. I have a number of wallets bought both for me and by me but this is the one I like most. I can see it will do many years service, maturing nicely all the while. I find it was great value, including the shipping to Ireland ï¿½ I havnï¿½t seen anything available locally or otherwise to match it for quality, at any price.
Iï¿½m planning a couple of belts and will be in touch.
Thanks again for your great service.
Received my belt this past weekend and it looks great. I couldn't be happier with it. Thanks for your time and effort.
I am so sorry I didn't write to you ealier. We received the belts a couple of days before Christmas... yeah! What a beautiful surprise! We absolutely love them! They came out great!
Thank you so much for your efforts and timeliness. The workmanship is perfect, as we've come to expect fom you! The attention to detail is apparent.
Have a very happy and prosperous New Year!
Elena and Keith
The wallet is beautiful, and my boyfriend LOVES it. Thank you so much!
Thank you! This wallet is beautiful!!!!!
Best belt I have ever owned. Almost too nice to wear! Already planning my next one.
My advice is don't spend $24.95 on a belt that will look worn out in 9 months; instead spend a little more (still eminently reasonable) for a custom built to your specifications, that will last from now on.
Thanks a lot! The item arrived this week.
I'm glad it all worked out so smoothly with the shipping and that the delivery was this quick!
The wallet is very beautiful and I'm happy with my purchase. I'd order from you again without hesitating (and probably will).
Thanks a lot!
Dear Mr. LeClaire,
I have received my belts and thank you. As always, your products are amazing. After you have some well deserved rest after the Holidays, I will be back again.
Best regards and Merry Christmas.
Thank-you very much! They are beautiful, My son should really like them. I do hope so! They smell so good too. Thanks again! Anne Almeida, Bishop, Calif.
I received the check cover today. It is perfect. Beautiful leather, careful craftsmanship, and the size is exactly as I specified. I am glad I found you on the web. Iï¿½m sure I will be ordering again - soon.
The belt arrived Friday!
I wanted to thank you again for your superb work. This is the third belt which I have bought from you, and the third time I have been very, very happy with the quality of your products. The first belt you made for me has seen pretty much daily use for almost two years now, and has held up to wear wonderfully. If I need any leather good in the future, I know where I will get them from, and that's a great feeling.
Have a great holiday season,
received the belt a few days ago.
The belt is great and absolutely kills any of the trash I have seen or spent money on from department stores.
Belt arrived. Just as with my earlier purchase, entirely satisfactory and then some. I am very happy to have found you folks and will pass the info around to anyone I think might find it of interest.
Received the belt today. Well done! Fits the buckle and me perfectly.
Received my belts today and what can I say.
Excellent quality you just can't get belts like
this anymore in Australia.Thanks again for
the effort and workmanship in producing
such a belt.Will be back for more and
will recommend you to family and
friends without hesitation.
Got it. Henry, your belts are great, and I sure enjoy your wallets. Just applied your conditioner to my first belt this morning, and it refreshed it nicely. You'll recall that a got a bridal leather billfold for myself, and a few billfolds for my boys, as well as the passport case. The bridal leather is breaking in nicely, still has the "rustle" of leather when opening and closing. I enjoy that. I enjoy the closing more...it seems to get opened too often. I bought a second bridle leather wallet for myself as well, in anticipation of when this one wears out. Looks like it'll be a while before I'm getting into that one - these appear to be very durable so far.
Thanks so much. Hope you had a nice holiday.
Best, John Nash
This was my fourth order from this vendor. Have been thoroughly delighted with every purchase. I could not imagine buying leather goods from any other source.
I received my belt an it's perfect.
You've sold me, I'll now order all my belts from you.
Thank you very much for the belts, your workmanship is excellent. I look forward to doing buisiness with you in the future.
The belt is wonderful and gets better the more I wear it. Thanks much!
Just a note so say thanks for the beautiful belt. The fit is perfect, the workmanship superb and the leather and buckles are top notch. To be honest I don't know how you can make such a great product at these prices but I'm glad you can. Compared to a lot of high end leather goods your stuff is in a class of its own. I'm pondering getting one of your wallets to go with my belt! You've got a great site and I find your circuitous career path intriguing and inspiring. One idea you might want to consider is offering a money belt option on some of your belts. I'll be traveling abroad and thought how neat it would be to have one of your belts that was also a money belt...I'm sure you would do a beautiful job...heck maybe all I had to do was ask you about this. At any rate, thanks for doing what you do.
I received the belt today, it is perfect! Couldn't ask for a better belt.
Thanks for your email and care instructions.
W. C. Warner
Just got my work belt, it is very nice and looks like I will
get years of service from it. I will definitely order my ranger belt now.
After been sold fake leather in Spain, I wasn't building my hopes up. But this is the real thing, beautifully crafted, this guy knows his job. Buy with confidence.
Hey Henry, just recieved my new wallet today it is really great, again just want to tell you how pleased I am with both of my purchases from you, keep up the great work I will talk to you again Steve.
The mailman delivered the belts you made for me ten ago. Everything about them is perfect. I have been in the leather business, shoes and accessories for more than forty years and I could kick myself for not finding you sooner.
My Russet Bridle Leather Ranger belt arrived yesterday and it is great.
The workmanship is clearly excellent and the weight and feel of the
leather makes me think that this will age well. I may try to darken it
a little, or else let nature take its course. But either way, this belt
is exactly what I wanted, so thank you. It is good to know that it is
still possible to get a quality product like this.
I just wanted to let you know I love my bridle wallet I ordered from you. Sorry I didn't get back with you sooner, I just placed a order for the calfskin wallet they look great. It will probably be the last two wallets I ever own!!!!
Hey, I got the wallet today, man it is really beautiful! I am so happy with it, you do great work! Thank you.
My sincere thanks! Belt and wallet arrived yesterday at the same time
and both are astonishingly beautiful, rugged and wearable!!
Wearin' them both in my office for casual Friday and the compliments
Can't thank you enough!!
I've been meaning to write and thank you for the excellent belt you made for me. I got it about the first of September. I showed it to my wife (who grew up as a farm girl), and she sniffed it and pronounced it as "Really good leather!"
I also want to thank you for chamfering the cut end of the belt so it would fit into my lever-type buckle more easily. This was an "extra" I didn't expect.
I've been wearing the belt for over a month now, and the hole I usually use has not elongated at all. In fact, it is almost impossible by just looking at the belt to tell which hole I usually use. A run-of-the-mill belt would by now have suffered a noticeable elongation of the used hole.
And the end of the belt still is perfectly aligned with the buckle. An ordinary belt would by now be somewhat crooked where it comes out of the buckle. I've found that extracting the belt end and re-clamping it does not help with a cheaper belt. Yours does not require any such adjustment.
Thank you for an excellent product and a job well done!
I just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic Ranger Belt! It is everything I hoped for and more, and I couldn't be happier with the way it looks. It is a perfect match for my Zuni buckle as you can see in the attached photograph. I was also very impressed with how fast you made it and shipped it. I will be recommending you to all my friends and will definitely come back to you for my next belt.
It's rare...that something arrives exactly as I'd hoped. The belt I found in mailbox this morning did that. I couldn't be happier. Really nice work.
I'll be ordering more items soon.
The belts came Friday. These are great belts for the price and the service was incredible. I just wish that I had know about your company sooner. Best of all they are made in the southern USA. Thanks.
I have a bridle leather wallet made by you and just want to let you know that it's beginning to break in nicely. Tough as nails. It's a great product. Thanks!
I received my first belt from you last week. It is everything that I
was looking for in a belt. I was raised in Texas and have lived in
Alabama for the last 21 years and to be honest with you, since I left
Texas, I have not been able to find a Ranger belt of this quality
anywhere I have looked. I love the belt and will buy more in the
future. Great quality, fast service and a product that you can show off
when you put it on.
Thanks a bunch.
A guaranteed return customer. I have given your information to a few of
my buddies here in Alabama. They are impressed with the belt.
Bill the belts are here, great looking, well made, fit well, and worth every penny. I will buy other products from you soon. Thank You. Tony
I have received the belt and it is beautiful! you do wonderful work, hopefully we can do business again.
thank you again!
I received the belt today and I love it!
Larry / Henry,
Received my belt yesterday and it is fantastic just like I used to have made back in the 70ï¿½s only a bit longer now!!
I am so impressed I can hardly believe it! You just might have set a world record in speed
Thank you Sir.
A beautiful product, well finished, with lots of personal choice for a personalized belt. My next belt I will upgrade to the harness leather, for second lifetime of us and be completely delighted.
This is the third Ranger Belt I've ordered and each is more beautiful than the last. I'm looking forward to having them make me a wallet next. This vendor is an ARTIST in leather.
Bill. have just received the belt today and what can I say!!!! It fits
perfectly, looks sensational, and is TOTALLY MAGNIFICENT!!!! My only
complaint is that I wish I could buy MORE!!! THANX AGAIN, ABSOLUTELY
UPS just delivered my/your belt and I immediately opened it. It is a
beautiful belt, and everything I had hoped it would be. It matches the dark
brown Cordovan "Lucchees" boots that I bought last month, and this was the
reason for my belt order. The Vogt silver belt buckle set that I have looks
handsome on it, and I will go to my favorite Latino shoe cobbler here in
Tyler and have him put on the silver "tip" today.
Thanks for your professional leather work. You did a good job for me.
Sincerely Yours in better craftsmanship,
Just got the belts and they're great. Beautiful color on both and
perfect fit. I'm sure I'll place another order soon.
Arrived today!!! Super bag - great leather and well-crafted!! Distinctive!!! Many thanks! Jim
The wallet arrived on Monday and it is better than expected, True craftsmanship, and you have provided swift and excellent service, Thank You!
It is currently being the envy of a few mates, so there might be more Irish orders coming your way.
The belt just arrived and it is gorgeous!
Also, from the description on your web site, I thought
the harness leather might be a bit stiffer than I like,
but it isn't - it seems only slightly stiffer than the
bridle leather. All-in-all the belt is even better than
Received my new belt today. It's even more beautiful than the other two!!
You do excellent work.
I appreciate it.
This is a late reply but I wanted you to know I received the belt and am
very happy with it. Your sizing system worked just right and the belt is of
exceptional workmanship and quality.
Thanks for your care in fulfilling my order.
I swear ... ya'll make the best belts I've ever owned. Keep up the good work.
I just received the glass cases and belt loop today. I can not tell you how pleased I am with them. The material and workmanship is excellent and they are ideal for the application. The belt loop is also one of the best I have ever seen - you might want to list it on your site.
I normally only use reading glasses and I need to carry them with me. Up til now the only cases I have found are too big and bulky to carry in a pocket and the ones that will attach to a belt have a wimpy clip that keeps sliding off of the belt or a leather (plastic) strap that only lasts a week or two. The last one I got from my optometrist lasted about 5 days. She could find nothing better.
I checked the internet under glass cases and there was nothing - it was only when I searched for leather goods that I found your web site (you might want to include glass cases or eyeglass cases in your search keys).
Thank you again for an excellent product and good service at a reasonable price and thanks for the belt loop.
Just to let you know that I received my travel wallet, its exactly as described and really well put together.
The belt arrived promptly and I put it on just about as quickly. It
seems to be an excellent belt and I am looking forward to using it for
Thank you for your service and your craftsmanship.
Just to advise we received the wallets yesterday in the post and we are delighted with them. Pretty fast shipping, too!! Expect another order from us again very soon.
Many thanks for the excellent service and quality products.
I received the belt on Friday. I have to say you do excellent work. The
quality and craftsmanship is wonderful. You hit the dimensions exactly and
I have to say it is customer service, quality and fair pricing like this
that is missing today.
You need to know that some of us still appreciate excellent work done in the
USA and you certainly exceeded my expectations on cost, quality, delivery,
This is the finest leather product and workmanship that I have ever seen. The Leather Goods Connection will exceed your expectations.
I received my ranger belt today and am very happy with it. It fits perfectly and great workmanship and materials. I would certainly do business with you again because of the excellent work you do.
Nice work on the belt Henry. Just got it and it's beautiful. Better than I thought it was going to look. I had thought I might put something on it (like Obenauf's leather preservative) but I think I may just leave it the way it is.
Thanks much. Jeff
Received belt today, just what I wanted & looks great with my 70 year old silver/gold buckle set. Thanks
hello guys and especially Bill,
I would just like to send my very best wishes and a big thank you for my lovely ranger belt that I received this morning in hampshire, england.
I am absolutely delighted with it, well made with care, beautiful nickel buckle and carriers, a top job, worthy of recommendation worldwide.
I will be passing on details when asked where I got it from - these things are rare in the uk!
Received my order (order 9956) today and just wished to send you a thank you for speedy shipping and great products! Both my belt and wallet were amazing in quality and craftsmanship. I have been searching for quality leather belt and wallet for awhile now and I believe your products will last me a life time but I will be back soon to purchase another belt as a secondary. I will also be thinking of your products come the holiday season. I will recommend your services to my friends and anyone that happens to comment on either of the items.
I recently purchased two belts from you and I love them! They are very
well made and are far superior to anything I can buy from the store or
in a magazine, they fit perfectly after following your precise sizing
guide and look great too.
I have received the wallet. Very nice craftmanship.
I found this website to be the most honest and informative, when considering an important leather goods purchase. I canï¿½t wait to get my new custom made belt.
Thanks for the promptness of my order. Got the wallet and was more than pleased. Have had many compliments on it. Looks like years of service. I am sure that the check book cover will be of the same quality. Still pleased with the way you care for you dogs. I will be a returning customer.
Got the wallet...absolutely amazing. Just what I was looking for. I will be sure to get some more from you in the future. I am thinking about a belt. Mine is getting pretty warn out. Thanks so much. Best birthday gift I have gotten in a while.
Belts came today. In good order thanks to your placing them in bags. The box had been wet and smashed.
The belt arrived today. My expectations were exceeded. I have owned several fine belts, but this belt is the nicest belt I've ever had the pleasure to use. The quality of the leather is first rate, the buckle exceptional, and fit is perfect (glad I read the sizing instructions!). I had a tough day today at work and was pleased to find the belt waiting when I got home. But my day was considerably brightened when I discovered that there are still people who can make a quality item with pride. Thank you very much.
I have received the uniquely custom belt that Larry made for me and it is
everything I hoped for. He did a good job and I have been wearing it and
am very happy with it. I'm hoping he will make a couple of more for me.
Thamks! I'm glad I found you guys.
Recieved the belt. What a great piece of work. I will be ordering another one soon, and replacing my dress belts shortly also. Great work.
O.K. add me to your list of very satisfied customers. I ordered the belt through your on-line form, got a back-up call from you folks and had my belt delivered in five business days. A perfect fit and superb quality. Worth every penny.
I received the belt today. Workmanship and materials are first rate. Frankly, I thought the belt was a bit expensive, but I had to find an alternative product after visiting several local western wear stores and being exasperated at finding only Chinese made leather goods. You get what you pay for and your belt is worth it; thanks for the superior product. I will have another made in the future.
Belt received today (this was a lot faster than expected). The pictures on your website don't do justice to your work : this is as simple as beautiful : the perfect "tough jeans belt" with a very subtle orange-beige colour (will be nice with orange chain-stichted seams). The leather is thick and supple and untrea this will get a wonderful patina... Thanks again. I will recommend your to my friends.
I received the belt this morning. I am very pleased and impressed. What a great product and fine work. It beautifully compliments my buckle.
Thank you very much.
Products appear to be of quality! Website, sucks................sorry, I was browsing for a belt and it was totally unclear for the products.................Finally, just left....................
I reconditioned four of your belts yesterday. Used every product you sent, and the belts look great. Thanks.
Hey fella, NICE belts!!!!!!! Great workmanship, fit great!
Great people to work with, no problems the belts are great.
I just received your wallet and belt, and I gotta say, never mind what I had in the past, they are by far the best quality products I've ever seen. I just love the tone of the brown leather, and the built quality is superb. I just wanted to let you know I really appreciate your craftsmanship, and I cannot wait for them to get broken it.
Henry: Received the belts just now. They're beautiful. Thanks for the quick service. JM3
The bag is beautiful, it arrived on Saturday! As they say good things are worth waiting for, thank you for your patience with me in getting this order together. The bag has outstanding workmanship!!!
Got it Friday and wore it to church today. Thanks for the excellent craftsmanship.
Henry, I received the wallet today and it's great. The quality is outstanding, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for getting it to me so quickly.
Recieved the belt today. Exactly what I wanted and it's BEYOND excellent!
Thank you so much for your assistance and personal attention.(and patience)
I will absolutely be buying again soon and will recommend to friends who are looking for some great leather to stop by your site and buy. Especially now, buying American made is more important than ever, and your shop and service represent the best of that.
I received the belts, and they are gorgeous. I could not be happier. Thank you so much for your work.
I received my Harness leather dress belt and my travelers wallet with chain.
I was more than pleased with the quality and craftsmanship that was used in the making of these products.
Now I know where I can get quality leather articles.
Thank you Bob Penney.
I just received the wallet! It is great. And all my friends were amazed by the quality and details of this wallet.
(They are from Japan, China and Korea.)
Thank you so much!
The belt arrived this morning and it's just perfect. Thanks very much
for your personal attention. In this day and age, you just don't normally
find doing business the way you do.
Great communication, quick production and shipping, top notch craftmanship--what else could you ask for? You've got a customer for life. Thanks!
-Edward (Houston, TX)
*Hi Bill, I just received my belt today. _WOW!_ It is absolutely beautiful. That has just become my favorite belt. Thanks, George*
I have received the belt that you created per my order, a fine belt it is
and I would like to thank you for your fine craftsmanship.
Charles T. Stetson
I received the belts on Monday after receiving notice on Saturday they were shipped. The belts are great! Just what I wanted. The leather is so nice. Thank you for clarifying the comments in the order. I appreciate your attention to detail.
Ok, I have a new favorite belt! Thanks for such handy work, you are very good!
Wow! I love the belt. I can't believe how quick you turned this
around-ordered Sunday and received on Thursday-unbelievable!
I received the wallet I ordered from you today. I was very impressed with the quality. I will be showing it to all my Harley buddy's to see if they would like to order one. I also showed your web site to my wife and it looks like I will be ordering her a purse in the near future. It is nice to know there are still quality products made in the good old USA.
Thanks again Mel.
Love the wallet, Henry.
Perfectly what I wanted and needed.
I just received the belt I ordered on your site and want to let you know it is every bit the quality that it should be. You have put together an outstanding product with quality that shows through in the workmanship!
I have ordered a couple of purses from you over the past several years and love them. They look good, are durable and are staying nice.
Janet B. Youell
My belt arrived yesterday. Perfect! You do nice work. I will share my experience with friends. I just retired as a Probation Officer, and they are always looking for good quality belts for duty and dress. I am very pleased with mine. I may order another belt in the future. I have you saved on my favorites, and will show my friends your card. Thank you.
WOW! I just received my wallet and absolutely LOVE it! Honestly, I accidentally click on your website and it captured my interest, especially the testimonials regarding the quality product you market.
I am retiring a five year old Dopp wallet (my favorite until yours) that had ten card holders, a pass case, two pockets, and two sections for bills. I was completely surprised that everything I carried in my old wallet fit nicely into my new one. Actually when seated, my new wallet is much more comfortable, too.
Sorry for the long message, I just wanted you to know that you have a customer for life. I am so happy I clicked on your site!
I just received the belt I ordered from you.
You are a true craftsman. I have never seen such a beautiful piece of work.
You can be sure that any future needs I have will be yours to fulfill.
My heartfelt thanks for your prompt response and the beautiful work.
John F. Zorn
We received the two ranger belts today. They are beautiful---exactly what I
had hoped for!! My husband has been looking for one for a long time---he
was really surprised and happy. I really appreciate your effort to make and
mail them quickly. And the craftsmanship is wonderful!!
Thanks so much,
Dear Henry -
Many thanks for the wallet, which arrived today and looks great. I very much appreciate the quality of the piece and the promptness of delivery. I hope to buy from you again some day. kind regards - Paul Watkins
- I received my wallet today.... F'n Awesome! From the smell and feel of the leather, to the stain color, to the suede interior compartments, to the personal monogram. Absolutely beautiful. I got compliments from all of the designers. We even put it next to the Creative Director's Japanese version.. Let's just say he wasn't to happy about his anymore! I may be placing another order for a coworker tomorrow and I'll be back soon for a belt to go with my wallet.
- Thank you again for a fine product..
I think your wallet is the best I've ever had. It's holding up great, and gets more attractive with use.
You did a dam fine job on my belt!!!!!!!!! Thank You!
Thanks, Henry. I just received the belts and they are perfect. Once again your work impresses me.
I wanted to write to let you know how pleased I am with the wallet I purchased. The workmanship is superb and the hardware adds to the uniqueness of your craftsmanship. I'm sure my boyfriend will have a great valentine's day.
Pocketbook recieved with great pleasure today ... thank you :-)
Just received my belt and the quality is fantastic! The service was great and the delivery was lightning fast. I will be sure to order more and also let my friends know of your products.

Thank you ever so much for a beautifully crafted wallet. Not only did I order it and requested branded initials.
Words cannot express........ Woo Hoo, Made in America.
we recieved the wallet. we are very pleased with the product.
thank you very much.
I recived my new wallet today and i'm very pleased! you guys did a great job, i'm sure it will last me a long time. Once again thank you!
I received the black Ranger belt with wheat stiching last night. It
will work perfict for my holster belt, The piece of leather you used is
very nice...Also the buckle set is better than I thought..very, very
Thanks again Bill for a wonderful product...
I purchased a ranger belt, and it is pure artistry! I am planning on buying another one soon; one for every occasion. I have had many friends comment on my belt.
I highly recommend anyone who appreciates perfect craftsmanship to select the design that you like, and buy one for your mate, and yourself for a gift.
Thanks for helping me with my new belt. I have to tell you the black Ranger and the Mechanics belt you made for me I gave as gifts this Christmas. These were the best received gifts I have given to my friends and my son, I did give them your web site, hope this will bring you a few new orders in this new year.
Again Bill thanks for making a wonderful product, Happy new Year....
My belt arrived today. Thank you so much for
your fast service. I bought it to replace a similar belt I
have that has long been past due for retirement, and I am
very pleased with the quality of your product.
First, happy new year!
Just returned from the mountains without internet. The wallet arrived in the meantime and I like it very much! It's almost like a late christmas present, thanks a lot for this exeption and the nice work you sell!
Wallet received...exceeds my expectations! Thanks
IF it wears out....you will get the reorder!
Mr. Hibbard - I received my belt in the mail today. Thank you so much for making such a fine belt. I feel like I'm wearing a piece of art. You are a true craftsman. Can't wait to order another once I decide what style and color. Thanks again.
I am delighted that my internet research led me to Leather Goods Connection! I wanted to purchase a "biker wallet" as a December birthday gift for my college-age son as his was falling apart; until I found LGC's website, I despaired of finding one without a logo/crude saying or that didn't otherwise look "cheap".
The wallet I ordered arrived surprisingly quickly during the holiday "crunch time" & I was very pleased with the quality of both the leather and the workmanship. Better yet, my son is very happy with it too.
Excellent e-mail communication, quality items made in the USA that are not over-priced, and prompt delivery are great reasons to support this small business, and I look forward to being a repeat customer. Warm thanks and all best wishes, Henry!
Henry Hibbard answers all e-mails personally in a timely manner. He delivered exactly what I ordered, he also, made sure (at my request that the company name did not appear on the outside of the package) and reduced shipping rates so that I actually paid less than I thought I was. I would definitly recommend him to anyone looking for a quality leather product, shipped efficiently, timely, and with utmost professionalism! Great Job, LeatherGoodsConnection.com!
I am simply floored at the quality of this belt! Have been looking forward to it for days and find that it exceeds all expectations. Absolutely perfect.
You are the best. Thanks again,
I just recieved the belt, and I just want you to know that I love it. Thankyou, its the nicest belt I have ever owned. I will wear it with much pride.
I wanted to order a wallet and have it specially adapted. He not only agreed to custom make it, but he shipped it two days later. I had the wallet four days later and it is beautiful. The gentleman was a pleasure to do business with.
Bill, just to let you know. The belt got here a couple of days ago. It's a
beautiful piece of work. Thanks a lot.
Have a Merry Christmas, Santa. I had looked and looked and had receieved several people/co.'s to tell me "no" they could not get one done and shipped the way you did. Enjoy your holidays. Rebecca
The mailman just dropped off my package with the belts--they are PERFECT! I
am wearing the black one on the second tightest hole and it feels and looks
great. Thank you for getting them so quickly too. I will certainly be
ordering from you again when I need more belts. Have a wonderful holiday
Many thanks for the belts. They are really great - twice the belt for half the price. I really can't believe I used to buy belts at J. Crew and Macys. Looking forward to ordering one of the fancier ones sometime in the future.
You rock, I have received the wallet and change purse - I am very pleased. Thank you for the quick turnaround.
It's been about a month since I received my Working Man's Wallet from you. The leather is softer, the wallet doesn't support itself to remain open 35 degrees when on its side, and it doesn't smell like the leather products it was seasoned with. I still admire it every time I pull it out, and still lovingly smell it every night before putting it on my pocket-stuffs table. I know it's going to live with me for a long, long time.
So, I wanted to thank you again, and keep your business card in case anyone mentions buying a new wallet or belt, or any leather product.
I was shopping for a good leather belt that would handle
a belt buckle. The sites I visited were vague about how
to measure, options, and the like.
But Leathergoods had a great web site. It took the mystery
out of how to measure and had clear options to custimize the belt.
The quality of the product is great. ( You get what you
Bill and the Craftsmen at Leathergoods Connection:
I just received the belt that I had ordered. I am truly impressed. The turn around from ordering to delivery (12 days) was incredibly fast, and I would willingly wait months for such a quality product. I am very pleased with the fit, color, and construction. This is exactly what I have been looking for and now I have finally found it. Please know that you will continue to get additional business from me, and I will be ordering additional items shortly.
Thank you for such a superior quality product.
Kindest personal regards,
Thanks so much. My husband will now have I believe 4 belts from you. He really loves the work you do and appreciates the quality of your product. Thanks again and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!
Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that my belts arrived today.
I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with them. Your craftsmanship is
evident throughout the belt. Quality material as well. I will highly
recommend your custom shop to all of my friends who I know also appreciate
the finer quality American made items like the belts you made for me.
I appreciate and admire your skill and craft.
Jess Hancock Sr.
Thank you Bill,
I received my belt and could not be happier. The quality is superior to anything I could by locally and even if I could find something as nice it would cost twice as much. The color is perfect, I don't no how you did such a great job based of my vague description but it is fantastic. Keep up the good work.
I have now bought and received 5 different belts from you and each one of them is unique in and of itself. The most recent one I bought was the braided belt with seven braids. It is perhaps the greatest example of your workmanship of them all. It is truly a work of art the way that this belt is made and how great it looks. The workmanship and quality of the other four belts I have purchased are also quite superb. As so many of your customers have stated, it is a joy to work with you. The time from placing the order to when the belts have arrived at my house is quite amazing in todayï¿½s world. To find such excellent quality in your product and the manor in which you deal and care for your customers is a breath of fresh air. I would recommend to anybody that they buy one or several of your products. They will be very pleasantly surprised with the quality and considering these are custom hand made belts, they are a great value in todayï¿½s market. I am so glad that when I searched the WEB for handmade belts that I found your WEB site.
Fantastic work combined with excellent customer service and communication is hard to beat. He is a true craftsman and made me a gorgeous belt. I would definitely recommend to my friends as well as purchase his goods again myself.
Thanks Henry --
The belt arrived very promptly, and I'm just as happy with it as I was with the first belt I bought from you, before I accidently left it behind in a hotel in Bermuda.
I received the belts today and I can only tell you that I was stunned.
Your web site details and illustrates the products completely, yet it doesn't begin to describe their quality. The richness of the oxblood tones I found in the medium brown leather is way more than I hoped for. The size and heft of the #4 buckle belies its photograph entirely. The thickness of the leather surpasses that of any harness leather belt I've ever owned, so much so that I first wondered if the belts would be supple enough to adapt to the buckle without a break-in period, but they did.
Finally, Bill, the workmanship is terrific. Even though I opted for plain belts the care, with which they were made is clearly evident.
Thanks again, Bill.
Very good quality work. Very responsive to customer needs. Exceptionally quick turnaround. Great website for customer information, selection and ordering. Unique belts individually hand made to customer order. Very highly recommend, especially the harness leather belts. A bit pricey but very high quality and unique. I will definitely shop there again. Bought three belts and am very pleased with them.
I got the belt yesterday. It sure did not take long to get here but I am not that far away in Tallahassee. It is another beautiful belt, not quite as flexible as the brown one Bill made for me but I can already tell by wearing it will get more flexible with a little time. It may be that the brown one is more flexible than the new black one because I have been wearing it for a while. I now own a total of 4 of your belts and everyone of them is great. I especially like the bridle ones because they are more flexible and are softer to the touch. Thanks so much for producing such a great product. When I get some more money, perhaps next month there is one more belt I would like to get. Having been in college in the sixties, I used to have a woven belt, they were very popular back then. I would like to get another one and am leaning toward the special seven braid one that you make. Anyway, have a great weekend and it has been a wonderful experience dealing with you and Bill.
It came today and is wonderful. Thank you very much.
I wanted to say that the photos on the net do not convey the real beauty of this handbag. The leather has a wonderful texture, the craftsmanship is beautiful, and it smells great too! So glad I stumbled upon your website.
I was out of town and just opened my belt. I could not be happier and
already look forward to another.
Hello Henry, Bill, & Larry:
I have recently ordered three belts, a dress belt, a casual harness leather belt, and a bridle leather work belt. Each of you made one of them and the quality is uniformly excellent. All three are very handsome and of great quality. I love them all. The work belt is the perfect casual jeans belt. I am amazed by the quick turn around time you guys give a customer. I was also impressed with the quick response on the dress belt sent with the wrong buckle. I got the new one within a few days and a refund check for postage to return it. The web site is great with very good images of the options available. Also the selection menu for the customers to select their preferred options is great. Even the attention of shipping the belts in a plastic bag inside the shipping box for protection from the elements does not go unnoticed. Excellent service, very high quality work and materials, very handsome belts. It will be my pleasure to enjoy these fine belts for years to come.

I received my construction worker/gunbelt belt yesterday and the fit and finish were perfect! Fine product and great craftsmanship! I couldn't wait to wear it today. I will be ordering a ranger belt and one other I can wear with a silver Indian buckle soon.
FYI, I passed on the web link to my wife and daughter to check out your purses and wallets. It is always a hassle for them finding the right combination of features at retail stores. I encouraged them to consider one of your items that will probably last longer than they will.

My belt came today. Beautiful piece of work. I think if my Daddy had one of your belts I would have enjoyed my whippings a lot more.
Thank you for a really fine belt.
I got home and found the belt waiting for me - it is perfect! I will most likely be ordering another one in black very soon. Thank you.
The bridle work belt i purchased from you has worked out terrific, fine quality and size, at a very reasonable price, w/ great Q/A support, am satisfied and will keep your site..... romas
I received my belts. Thank you for the fast shipping. The belts are
very nicely made (love them!) - you are one of a dying breed. It is
really pleasant to do business with someone who has a great product and
fantastic customer relations!
I have received the belt last Friday. In one word I'll describe it..."GREAT".
Great workmanship and quality.
It is alot better than a store bought belt that was falling apart due the abuse that I put it through.
I got the belts you made for me today . A real mans belt is what I wanted and that`s exactly what I got . They look very well made, and fit absolutely perfect. WELL WORTH THE MONEY , THANK YOU HANK ! JOHNNY BOY LOVES THE BELTS
Hi Bill -
I got the belt and it is absolutely gorgeous! You did a beautiful job. I thank you for your rush order. I know my husband-to-be will love it and will wear it hard (he's a farmer). These belts are such a great gift idea, I will certainly keep you in mind in the future and recommend you to friends.
Thanks so much!!!
The belts arrived this weekend. You did a fantastic job on them. My
wife loves hers.
Thanks very much,
The items arrived today. They are spectacular. This new belt is already my favorite. Need to grow together with the new wallet - it is very different from what I'm used to. Thanks a bunch for crafting and selling great products at a fair price. This is how commerce is supposed to work in America. I plan to do more business with you.
I just got the wallet today, and it looks GREAT! I will show some pictures of
it on a streetwear forum where I first heard about you from if you don't
WOW!!! Henry! The wallet you handmade for me is of the highest craftsmanship. Truly a piece of fine leatherwork. I will take pride in ownership and of course stuffing it with greenbacks and using it on a daily basis. Thanks, Gene
Got the belts yesterday. FABULOUS work. I'll definitely be coming back for more.
Quality belt construction just as ordered. Quality leather, unbelievably fast turnaround - 6 days from order to receipt of belt. Great price and value. Would definitely order again.
My handbag tote arrived today; beautiful work as always! Thank you.
Dear Henry -
My belts arrived. I love them. Just what I wanted. Awesome quality construction. What a fabulous find and less than a week from order to receipt.
Thanks so much!
This has been a wonderful belt. Thanks very much!
I received my belts today. These are the best quality and best looking daily use belts Iï¿½ve ever purchased. Thanks for your hard work putting these out.
Ok, I have a new favorite belt! Thanks for such handy work, you are very good!
The belts arrived today. They look great. Thanks! I'll be ordering from you again in the future.
Just a quick note to say that I received the belt more than a week ago. Just in time for a business trip to Atlanta. You did a beautiful job and I love it. I didn't want that to go unsaid. Thank you very much.
Very best regards.
I recieved the backpack and am very pleased with it. Thanks for the special pocket.
This wallet is superb! You do fantastic work. My husband works on the oil rigs & won't be home for another week but he is going to die when he sees it! I told him on the phone how nice it really is. Thanks for a great product and fast shipping too!
Hi, I received the order. Just letting you know it is such a fabulous wallet.. really great. Thanks for that.
I just wanted to write and let you know I got my belt today and am VER happy with it!! The quality is superb and the customer service is second to none. I will be letting all my LE friends know about your belts!
AMAZING! One had a custom color, and ordered on Sunday, and shipped on Monday! I might need the Cordovan dye in the future, since you said it was like a dark tan. I have shoes that are colored "cognac", which is a dark tan without any red that I can see. Maybe I can get a sample of the dark tan color to see if it is a close match one of these days. Thanks for your work!
I recieved the wallet today it is a great show of craftsmanship thanks alot , mike
I got the belt and everything looks great. I had a Circle Y ranger type belt, just a simple leather belt with buckles similar to the one I purchased from you, it was getting a little thin in the back, however it was 15 years old and has been on me every single day. The ranger type belt in my opinion is by far the best design, and you did an outstanding job on this belt.
I received my belt yesterday. I won't waste your time but I had to write and tell you. The fit...perfect. The workmanship...perfect. I have looked for the longest time to find a place where I could buy a good, quality belt but they certainly aren't in the clothing stores. I will buy again.
Thank You Very Much,
Thanks Bill - I have received the belt and LOVE IT!
Jamie & Kevin Elder
Thank you for your great product. This is the second belt I have ordered from you. I am a Deputy Sheriff and I wear your belt to work everyday, and it is still in great shape. The reason for this order is a different look and a different color, and I know I can trust the product.
thank you for my wallet. the craftsmanship is excellent. plus its American made. keep up the good work. thanks david
I just received my new belt today and it is perfect. The workmanship is
excellent, the style and fit are great. I couldn't be happier. You can be
sure that I will be letting my friends and family know about your great
service excellent craftsmanship.
The belt arrived as promised and I'm very happy with it. Very nice leather and craftsmanship. It fits perfectly at the center hole, and its the first belt I've ever had that really fits me, that I haven't had to poke extra holes in or chop off part of the end. . .
Well done. I'm sure I'll be a repeat customer and I'll spread the word.
Thank you so much.The bag arrived yesterday and it is PERFECT.
Thank you also for the Chestnut sample. It is the color I was looking for. I will send a separate update for the other order because in addition to the color I would like to specify the strap width.
Thank you for your excellent craftsmanship and professionalism!
I received my belt today. It's great! I'll be ordering more from you in the future. Thanks!
Ive been proudly using one of your trucker wallets for a few months now, and thought I'd drop you a line just to say its wearing very well and I'm very pleased with it. Its exactly what i wanted, and is breaking in nicely. Very high quality wallet, thanks a bunch! :)
I recieved my pocket book and wallet and I am very pleased with it. They are beautiful and you did a wonderful job, just wanted to let you know, can't wait to do business again with you all.
Thank you again,
Henry, Arrived !!!!! Tremendous, that'll stop my hernia poppin' out !
The backpack arrived today. It is one spectacular piece of craftsmanship. I'm sure glad I found you on the web.
I received my purse and once again, it's fabulous, just like the first one! The pebbled leather looks just like the bigger one I have, I'm very pleased. Again, thank you for all the emails to get it just right!! Long live camo!! :)
Hope you had a nice holiday and didn't work through it! :)
My belt arrived. It is great and fits fine. I just ordered another. Thank you.
Today, Wednesday, I received the belt that I ordered on Sunday, thats fast service !! I'm very pleased with the quality and appearance, thanks for providing a great product. I will be back.
Received the wallet. Just what I needed.Since this is the wallet you still use, maybe a photo of yours today will give us a picture of what to expect in the years to come.
In todayï¿½s disposable age, itï¿½s great to be able to purchase something ï¿½long-lastingï¿½!
My tote just arrived and it is beautiful! I'm about as picky as you can get when it comes to purses and this one is fabulous! The workmanship is awesome and the brown pebbled leather is so soft. I appreciate that you were able to make the straps 1" wide. Thank you for the quality product, the fast shipping, and for replying so promptly to my email!!
P.S. the braided keychain is fabulous as well. :)
Just received the hand-stitched wallet and I am very pleased. The quality of the craftsmanship of this wallet is second to none. Thank you!
Received the wallet today. Very nice. Thanks
Thanks, Bill. This will be my second belt from you. The first is being used in the northern Sahara in extreme conditions. It's holding up fine in an environment where most shoes and clothes fail in just a couple of months. Don
Received the Leather Belt you made for me
Very nice indeed. The leather tooling is simple, clean, and very attractive - as is the belt and the wonderful patina on the leather is great. Thanks.

just wanted to thank you for the wallet... it is a thing of beauty!
THANKS SO MUCH, I'M THRILLED!
Dear Mr .Hibbard
Received the two belts I ordered yesterday. The quality is as I expected very good. Two thumbs up.
Hi Henry...thanks for the wallet....very very nice. I have already passed your name on to a few family members and friends. Take care...keep up the good work...and don't ever stop being part of American goods produced in AMERICA! Thanks again....Craig
Received the belt yesterday. Great looking, my husband loves it. You can just see that it will last a long time!

I absolutely love it! Great service, quick answering emails, beautiful
craftsmanship, fast turnaround and prompt shipping... who could ask for
anything more? I'll definately be buying more products from you !

Just a quick note to say thanks for a fine belt. The workmanship and quality of the leather are superb. I have been searching for quite some time for a belt to go with a special buckle I have had for many years. I am fortunate to have found your web site. You can be sure I will be contacting you again in the near future.
Thank you again.
Hello Henry: Just a note of thanks for making one heck of a ranger belt, as the Brits like to say, you are " Spot On ", meaning what you say you are going to do , you DO, thanks for the great belt, charlie, Lynton, Devon, U.K.
The belt you shipped me three weeks ago or so is perfect. I really like it, second I've gotten from you.
Just a quick follow-up for you. I got the glasses case with a pocket in which you put a clip. It is absolutely perfect. You really do fine work. Thank you.
I just wanted to write and say how pleased I am with the ranger belt you made for me. It fits perfectly and I'm extremely pleased with the workmanship and materials used.
I had previously purchased a belt from a higher priced company in Santa Fe and was very disappointed in the workmanship. There is no comparison the the quality of the belt you made. I now know where to obtain my belts in the future. On future orders will you be the one that makes my belt or would I have to specially request that you produce it?
Thank you again.
I received the wallet a couple of weeks ago and I would like to thank you.The quality and craftsmenship of the wallet was awesome!I'll be doing business with you again soon...this time I need a new belt.
I received my order in good condition.
I just love the belt! Fits well; a very comfortable and handsome belt.
Received my belt today - it's even nicer and better constructed than I
expected! Thank you for the fast shipping and a high-quality product.
My belt arrived today, and all I can say is what a beautiful piece of art/craftsmanship. The belt is everything I hoped it would be and more. I hope to steer some folks your way.
Thanks very much.
Carlos "Bud" Miller
I received my watch with the new fob that you made for me yesterday. I am so very pleased with the workmanship Henry. It came out much better than I ever imagined that it would. Thank you very much for not only doing it for me but also for the very fine job.
Richard C Furman
Just got my belts today and they are Brilliant! Thank you so much for the great product at a good price. I will definitely try to sell some more for you to all my friends. Keep up the good work, I am thrilled.
Henry - The belt is great. Good leather. Good brass. Good craftsmanship. All as suggested by the thorough and charming website. Many thanks. Don McCouch
Hi Henry - I got my order! Thank you very much...it's just what I needed. I'll make sure to check your site out again when I need anything leather.
my belt arrived today and it is beautiful and well made! Your ordering system and measuring instructions are easy and accurate: I'm right in the middle of the hole pattern! Thanks for the quick shipment also. I'm much impressed.
I received the 2 belts today, and just wanted to thank you.
The belts are very nice!
Mr. Hibbard, I received your belt in the mail yesterday. I ordered the plain tan work belt. It's a great belt, fits and looks great. All for a very good price. Thanks a lot Ralph
I received my belt - I am wearing it today. I love it! - Looks great!!
The quality of the harness leather belt you made for me far surpasses anything available at any price from any store.This belt is a thing of beauty and a joy to wear; it is great to find quality merchandise that is made in AMERICA. I look forward to doing business with The Leather Goods Connection in the future.
Sorry for getting back to you late but wanted to say thank you for the excellent service and especially the excellent belt. It is rigid enough to hold a holster for conceal carry with no problem and good looking enough for me to wear every day to the office. Your shipping was incredibly fast. The price was a deal!
Thanks for the great product!
Bill, The belt arrived yesterday. Great work - exactly as it looks on your
web site. I'm very pleased and will be back. Many thanks, Bill
I got the belt this morning (Saturday) and Iï¿½m really happy with it. It fits well and is very comfortable. You donï¿½t feel like youï¿½ve been tied in the middle like a sack of grain. The other thing I really appreciate is that you use USPS priority mail. It gets here so quickly. I order stuff from other suppliers and it would fit in a small box like you used or smaller and they insist on using UPS who ships it out to Seattle and then lets it sit until the five days plus a weekend have gone by and then they deliver it, very frustrating. So thank you, it has been a pleasure doing business with you and I really appreciate your workmanship. The first comment from my wife was ï¿½thatï¿½s really concealed, you hardly notice the black holster against the black belt and black shirt.ï¿½ I canï¿½t get over what just a little extra width does for comfort. It will definitely last the rest of my life.
Thanks Henry I received my belt today. It is gorgeous, and the quality is immediately evident. This coupled with the incredible speed with which I received it means that you can expect me to come back for all my belt related needs. Thank you! Your newest loyal customer, Derek
just to let you know, i bought a belt from you just around two years ago, wear it everyday, and its as strong as the day i bought it....i absolutely love it.
I don't normally do this, but had to tell you that my belt arrived in good time and that I was and remain 'over-the-moon' with it. Really excellent quality in both materials and workmanship.
I just wanted to let you know that the belt arrived (quickly) and I am VERY happy with it. The quality and workmanship are extraordinary! Thank you so much! I will definitely be recommending you to friends.
Got the black ranger belt just a few minutes ago. It's gorgeous! Exceeds my expectations. You are an artist!
Thanks a million!
I purchased a custom ranger belt, along with another simpler one, and a business card holder from you this past Fall. Absolutely top-notch craftsmanship. I don't imagine that anything finer is available.
Now, my wife wants a new brown leather belt, and I immediately knew where I needed to go... Store-bought just isn't good enough anymore! Thanks again.
Adam R. Parr
Received belt Saturday 12 January. Very good indeed. Thanks again.
MY NEW BELT IS EXCELLENT AND THE CRAFTSMANSHIP
IS BEYOND COMPARISON. I WILL ORDER A NEW PURSE FOR MY WIFE NEXT. WE HAVE ALSO ORDERED BELTS AND HIS AND HERS WALLETS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Dear Henry, I received the belt, that I ordered, yesterday. I got it for my Husbands birthday. He has been searching years for a really good leather belt. I am so happy to say, when he opened his new belt, he was VERY happy!!! He had to put it on right then, so he got his buckle, put it on the belt and slid it through the loops of his jeans. It fit him "like it was made for him"! When I told hin that it was made just for him, he was so happy! Thank you Henry for making such a quality product!!! I wouldn't hesitate to purchase other items from you! I will, indeed, pass your companys name and website on to my friends! I hope you have a wonderful day. Sharen White
Thanks! The belt arrived Monday and it's fantastic!
That Sir, is a NICE belt.
There will be more orders down the road.
I just received my belt in the mail. Great service for the holiday period. The tapered harness leather belt is absolutely way past my expectations. The workmanship is superb. The modification I ask for is perfect. You've gotten a new lifelong customer. Thanks so much. By the way the fit is perfect also, and all I did was follow your instructions on the web. Thanks again!
The wallet came in today and it is absolutely perfect! It is identical to wallets made by high end japanese companies like Red Moon at a third of the price! Excellent work, my friend!
The Quality of the handmade belt I bought would be hard to match,it is a joy to wear
Thank you, Bill. It arrived yesterday, fits perfectly, and is both
beautiful and elegant.
Have a good Christmas!
I just wanted to let you know that your belts are great. They have worn very, very well and still look almost new after much use. Too many times we only tell people when they donï¿½t perform to our expectations in some way, but I wanted to let you know that your product is excellent.
(shipped Sept 2006, email from Dec. 2007)
The belt looks great and I had no problem adding our silver fittings. The only thing I may need a little help with is the tip. I just think you will be able to fit it on better than I have. I may send it to you after Christmas to see what you think. Thank you very much. My husband will be very happy when he sees it on Christmas. Maggie
I received the wallet yesterday, thank you very much. I like how it looks and it is well made. I know the recipient will enjoy it especially since it is made in America!!!
First thing my 6 year old said when he saw the belt is "I want one".
What better complement than that.
A true work of art. It is beautiful. I will be back again. Thanks.
Wow. This wallet easily met and exceeded my expectations. Very impressive workmanship. My girlfriend will definitely love it.
Thank you Henry. I'll be sure to pass the word about your site.
Just wanted to let you know I've been thoroughly enjoying this wallet.
I especially love the leather lining you used on the inside. Thanks!
Received the wallet today; it's beautiful, and what fast service! Thank you!
My purse is beautiful. Thank You!
I recieved my black work belt today and just let me say WOW! It is so perfect! Exactly what I was looking for/wanted! You did a wonderful job and quickly too! I am so pleased with it, i am exstatic!!!!! It is a christmas gift for my father and it couldn't be more perfect! Thank you so much for the wonderful service and excellent quality, I will recommend you to anyone I know looking for a good quality belt. Thank you so much!
Thanks for your prompt service. The belt is precisely what I wanted:
excellent quality, fit, and finish.
The wallets arrived more than a week ago, but I was out of town, so didn't
get to see them until now.
They are wonderful as expected! Thank you so much :) You are a great master!
Bill and Henry.Just to let you know I received this order and I am more than satisfied!Even my wife took a second look when I removed the belt from the box. I think it would be next to impossible to find craftsmanship and quality of the likes you have built into this piece in anywhere here in Canada.I will most definitely be back.Made in America or Made in the USA and made by who should be stamped somewhere on this product so when people ask ,and they will, I can try and educate them on the merits of not buying made in China or made in Japan or from other copycat society.Not only kind regards but best regards.Bob Graham
Wallet arrived yesterday, is beautiful. He loves it!
Hi! I just wanted to let you know my order arrived safely today. Thanks for offering these for sale. My father-in-law has been looking for this type of keychain for several years. His old one is worn out and he really loves it!
I want to drop you a note that I love your belts. They fit and are made to perfection. I am glad that you are keeping up the leather tradition in America. Keep up the good work.
I just received the belt. Awesome leather quality, awesome work and made in
Just wanted you to know that I received my buffalo calf leather trucker wallet today. It is beautiful and exactly as described online. I can't wait until it is broken in. Fantastic craftsmanship is obvious. Thank you.
*Bill Just wanted you to know how pleased i am with the Ranger Belt you
made for me................*
*It could not be nicer..........*
I ordered a brown belt last week and all I can say it WOW! ! !. I've searched for 5 years for your product and now I've found it. Thank you. Thank you.
I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with my new
Harley Hobo! It is exactly what I wanted, and the
quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. I think
it's the nicest thing I've ever bought for myself,
it's beautiful, and I love it!!! Thank you so much.
Iï¿½m so impressed! Incredible product and completely what I expected from a top quality belt manufacturer. You guys were easy to deal with, you made the ordering process very simple and the product came exactly when anticipated. You guys rock!
Dig the wallet.
I recieved my belt today and am delighted with it,it has been a pleasure doing business with you
This belt is the best I've ever had. Many thanks! I'm sure I'll be a
The wallet arrived today. I had very high expectations, and this wallets lives up to them. It is exactly what I wanted. Thank you for your time and craftsmanship. What a beautiful wallet.
Awesome Product, Much better than in pictures, it seems like this belt will outlive me..
I have never done this before, but... what promped the following email? Wondered myself so looked up the order. From the comments window on that order:
Hi. The "actual" measurement on my belt to the hole I use is closer to 37.25" So let's go with that.
I'd like to have the holes in this new belt at a closer spacing than one inch to allow for more accurate adjusting based on daily gut size! If you can space the holes as close as .5" that would be good---if not, then whatever you think is best for "close" spacing on the holes. You can also increase the number of holes for this closer spacing if you think that will work better--7 or 9 holes (sets of holes on this double-tang buckle).
On color--somewhere on the darker side of "medium" brown? Could be my monitor, but "dark brown" looks really dark (almost black.) I'm not super picky on the color--just looking for a classic "brown" belt.
Hope all this info helps. I'm delighted to find a place to actually FIND a belt that's 2.5 inches wide! I've been looking for one forever! It's to wear with a kilt!
Thanks! Looking forward to my new kilt belt.
Here is the unsolicited follow up email:
I didnï¿½t think there were companies like you left any moreï¿½high-quality product, no hassles, promptly shipped, custom made, fair priceï¿½ Cï¿½mon! I would have settled for just one of those things and thought it was great. Iï¿½m an adept internet shopper, and Iï¿½ve never had a better buying experience. Well done, my friend.
All the best,
Got home last night and the belt was waiting for me. Absolutely beautiful work. Thank you so much. Can't wait until I can order my next one.
It arrived today, and looks great. Thank you much for the quick and
reliable service, especially for something clearly crafted with so much
care - I'll be back soon for another!
I received my bags, and backback on Saturday. What can I say, your bags are gorgeous. I expected something nice, but what I got was beyond that. I will definately purchase from you again. Thank you so much. It is nice to know that, that kind of craftsmanship is still out there.
Tracy L Hoffman
The belt came today, just want to tell you what nice work you did, and
the quality is the best. Any belt you buy in a store, comes apart after
very little use. I will be ordering another belt soon. thanks again
for the great work.
I got the belt today. I love it it looks great. Thanks so much. We will do more business. JGB
Henry, Received my bag today and it is well worth the wait. I'm a real pocketbook collector and the two I have of yours are by far my favorites. I have a lot of Vera Bradley bags but when I think of what I spend on them, I could skip two and buy myself another one of yours. Thanks for keeping me informed as to where the bag was. It was well worth the wait. Barbara
Your products are FANTASTIC!! Thanks for the fast shipping too.
My wife called me yesterday to let me know that the belt had arrived. Her response to it as she pulled it out of the box was the same as mine .......WOW! I really due appreciate all the time and effort you spent with me on the leather swatches and online Q&A. I truly am pleased. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who appreciates such dedication to one's trade.
The belt arrived today and I am very pleased with it. Thanks for the good quality! I shall have to order another one soonï¿½
I received my card case yesterday and am really happy. Great job making my card case.
I received the belt Saturday in the mail. It is exactly what I wanted.
Thanks so much for the quality work.
I received my order very quickly. Most impressive was the attention to detail given the item I ordered as well as the overall quality of the work done. I feel fortunate to have been a customer.
Dear Leather Goods Connection,
I just got the wallet I ordered from you yesterday. It is so beautiful. Thank you, I know my husband will love it!
Just received my wallet. Very nice
I go my belt today. Just wanted to thank you for your attention
to detail and for the overall quality of your work.
I have just received my leather ranger belt and I would like to say a very big thank you. The service has been excellent as is the quality of the belt. So much so that I will be placing another order with you soon.
I got my belt and it is exactly what I wanted - thank you ever so much - I will definitly recommend y'all to my friends.
The dress belt is beautiful. Your work is excellent. Thank you so much.
Just thought I would e-mail you to thank you for a top quality belt.
Will be doing business with you again soon.
I received the belt today and upon initial inspection and fitting I am very pleased with the construction, fit, and finish. I tried it on with my holster underneath and it fit beautifully. Thank you for a great product and you can anticipate more business from me as your belt and service are both superb.
The belts you made for me have arrived quickly and safely.
They are absolutely fantastic and I'm very pleased with every detail of my
transaction with you.
Today I received my custom designed belt that you created for me......... BEAUTIFUL just as I fully anticipated and you came through with the final creation with flying colors. Great color finish and decorations nicely cast brass buckle. What can I say but thank you for sharing your expertise in the creation of my belt.
Your offerings and finished product are the best I have seen. It took time searching the web and finally found your site, it was worth the time searching to find you and get something I will treasure.
I will be sure to share your address and my experience with anyone looking for great leather craft.
Thanks so much: geo Hoffman
I am replacing a belt my wife bought me for Christmas this year (bless her). After a few months it started falling apart. It was getting to the point where I feared it would completly fail in the middle of the day, and leave me beltless. Sure enough, it was made in China. That made 3 articles of clothing in the past year, that fell apart, and all from China. I now look at the tag before I purchase.
This is a gifted craftsman with excellent customer service. I now have two exquisite handbags at a very reasonable price, given the workmanship. The website is an education in itself.
Henry - I have put my new bag to work and it is perfection.
This is my third belt and my second ranger belt. I am not replacing one, just adding one of a different color. They all fit perfectly and look great. My dad always wore one and if he were alive today I would order him one.
My new purse arrived in the mail today. The leather and craftsmanship are beautiful to see and feel! I can't wait to carry it tomorrow and for many many days to come.
Thanks so much.
I never replied to you on this...
Thank you very much. The belts are well loved and worn.
I appreciate your excellent service, will recommend you to others!
The belt and wallet arrived on Friday. Both are fantastic. My wife is jealous of the purple belt and wants one for herself, so we may have another order for you shortly.
A great belt and so inexpensive for a UK buyer, for such fine-worked leather. Thank you very much indeed.
I purchased your ponderosa truckers wallet some time ago. I am a biker and carry it with the leather lanyard every day. The quality was outstanding, and I would recommend it to any one who likes quality leather. The only modification I made was to put a snap on the bottom to seal the wallet shut. I would like to see one with a zipper all the way around and I would snap one up in a hurry. Keep up the great craftsmanship.
Hi Henry - Got my new drawstring/sling backpack yesterday and I love it. The designer leather translates nicely in this bag with just the right balance of heft and "slouchiness". I particularly like the easy access of the drawstring top and the roomy pockets on the side. And your new logo is great - classy and discreet. As always, couldn't be happier.
Hey, I have just received your Ponderosa 10-2 wallet and am writing back to let you know what a fine product it is. I am truly satisfied with my purchase and my friend's recomendation was not wrong. I will be looking forward to breaking this wallet in and seeing how it withstands the cold canadian winters. Your craftsmanship and attention to detail is impeccable and I have never seen such a unique wallet in person before. Everything is fantastic and I cannot wait to see how this beautiful leather ages. My next belt purchase will be from you for sure! It was a pleasure doing business with you. Cheers.
I LOVE it!!!
You're a genius!!!
Iï¿½m sure you have seen your share of belts, but I wanted to let you know that I finished the belt project I started using supplies from your page and am very pleased with the quality of your products and the product they yielded. I think I am going to turn this into a hobby and try some different belts with stains and such once I get the funding to do so. The leather you use is pretty awesome. Thanks again, ï¿½Andrew Reineberg
I've been looking for a first quality belt for years-this is it!Really pleased!
I just wanted to make sure I thanked you for the bag. I have been away and have been very busy! I wanted to express to you that once again you do superb work. I love a simple bag made with quality workmanship and beautiful leather which is what you bring to the table. Believe it or not that is extremely hard to find. I bring my bags around the world and am always PROUD to carry them. Thank you and Have a good day!!
Just wanted to let you know that the belt arrived today and I really like it. I am basically replacing a life long favorite and kept the old buckle. The new belt is even nicer than my old one, which had been the best that I had ever owned. Glad that I found your web site. Keep up the great work.
I received my belts today, and words can't express my thoughts. The mind can come up with some great pictures and ideas, but your product is beyond my imagination. You could have charged me twice as much and I still would have been impressed. It is truly custom. They fit perfect, the color and workmanship is second to none. I would like to thank you for getting me my money's worth, to often today are we disappointed with custom items, but you truly have a God given talent. Again, thank you so much.
I just want you to know that both of my orders have arrived. I am more than pleased. "Elegant" is the only word I can think of to describe my bags and accessories.
Thank you for the lovely items. (Oh! I did think of another word...)
Vivian E. Dixon
The belt arrived and it is superb. It is so well made that I really don't see how the bridle dress belt could be any better. Thank you for your kind and patient emails and for making something that I will get much enjoyment wearing. I know that any future leather needs will be crafted by your company. Kindest regards...Tom
Received the belt you made very very pleased with it
so much so I'll be back in the near future to order again
My two belts arrived promptly in the mail today. Sturdy and handsomely crafted, these are probably the finest belts I've ever purchased and worth every penny spent. A fine example of quality American craftsmanship. Thanks again!
Great job! I absolutely love the belt. I'm so glad you made it and you did it so fast!
I love the wallet! I probably should mention this work of art in my will so that they won't fight over it when I'm gone. On second thought, I just may take it with me. Thank you so much...Tom
Leather Goods Connection is the most unique leather company on the web. Very few companies will take a custom buckle and apply it to their own custom made belts. Henry Hibbard is a master at his trade and works well with his customers. Thank you very much for a job very well done once again.
Andrew J. Coleman
Received my new belt a couple weeks ago. Love it love it. Have had several
compliments. You promised and you delivered. Service was excellent also. I
will pass along all info regarding your fine company. Maybe I can sell
something for you!!!
Hello Mr Hibbard,
You made me a beautiful alligator purse about a year ago with my hide. I get many compliments and enjoy it tremendously.
I forwarded the scraps to your friend in TN and had wallets made. I have lost his name & address & phone number. I think it is Dark's Leather.
Could you forward that to me?
Thank you very much.
The bag arrived and it's lovely.
Helen S. Schwartz, Ph.D.
Received my work belt today. The craftsmanship is perfect and the color is beautiful. I'm going to enjoy this for many years to come.
I received the belts and handbag you made for me. Oh my gosh. We ARE talking gorgeous. Of the belts the braided is my favorite due to the color of the leather. WOW what fabulous work.
I am not a handbag girl so it takes a bit to impress me. I'm impressed. Beautiful clean lines. I wasn't sure I liked the colors I chose when I first opened the package but I like the mix the more I look at the bag. Kind of understated classy, I think. I'm sure that you have a lot to do w/that.
Its a great pleasure to have the benefits of Web shopping and personal service at the same time. Not many craftsmen offer Henrys expertise via the Internet--or even in person.
It's a great wallet totally love it, it fits perfectly in my back-pocket and it just has a great feel to it.
Henry, I received the belts and they are beautiful. Thank you.
Bill - the belt arrived yesterday. It looks great. It is a pleasure to buy a quality item from someone who knows what he's doing. Thanks! Alan
These guys are excellent. Their level of quality is as advertised -- I was not disappointed!
This belt is awsome. I haven't taken it off since I recieved it.
I will definately become a repeat customer in the near future.
Thank you so much for being so prompt in sending out the wallet. My mother loves it, and she is very particular. I am so pleased that I chose your company to deal with online.
Thank you very much again for making this a pleasant experience.
Waterloo, Ontario Canada
Dear Henry...Thank you VERY much for a quality product...I haven't had access to leather products such as yours in a very long time. Leather was easy to find in Miami and I have no shops to deal with in Mobile, AL. I will use you again for future leather needs. Thanks again...Jim Swagerty
Just got 'em in the mail today. They're excellent -- exactly what I wanted!
I want to tell you how much I am impressed with your cigarette case. I ordered one then wanted more colors they are just perfect.
I got the belt today. Thanks so much. I think you are the best leather craftsman in the world!
(If I was writing these comments myself, they would all be like the one above. ;<)
Received the belt today. Awesome quality! I plan to
order another color of the Bridle belt.
My two belts have arrived and I am delighted with them.
Thank you for your fine service.
Friday Harbor, WA
got the belt in yesterday's mail. What a beautiful
belt and great crafsmanship.
Thank you very much.
Excellent web site
What else could you ask for?
The belt looked great!!! I'm sure he'll love it. thanks for all your help. im sure i'll be shopping your site again.
Just had to send a note of thanks for the incredible wallets I just received.
Before I opened them I could smell the new leather and knew then I had a great piece of quality in my hands. I have the Ponderosa and Working Man wallets and the quality and workmanship are hands down the best I have seen. I know these will last for many years to come.
I have owned many over the years and usually get a couple of years wear out of them before they fall apart. One recent purchase lasted about six months and it came out of one of the better so called leather stores. I am physically active on my job and need a wallet that holds up to those demands and I can tell these will do just that. I ordered both since I couldn't decide which one I liked better and now have to decide which one to use. I think I will use the Ponderosa only on the weekends!
The skill, quality and workmanship show on your products and I will carry them with pride.
Much continued success,
I got my Working Man's Hand Sewn Wallet today. I'm very impressed with the color and general construction. Very solid and rugged. And the wallet shipped Monday and arrived today, Wednesday. Outstanding service and product. I will recommend your products to my friends and family.
My belt came yesterday. What an excellent job. It's a very handsome
item, and I will be recommending you highly. My girlfriend is eager to
see what you offer in the way of bags and wallets. I am very
All the best,
The belt is absolute gorgeous! Thank you for your prompt service, attention to detail & extraordinary product.
This is the second time I have ordered belts Leather Goods Connection. Once again the materials and workmanship is outstanding. Customer service is great as well as the time to delivery. I like these belts so much I am ordering 3 more belts today.
I received the belt and wallet today. Both are outstanding.
The quality of product was incredible for the price. I will be placing more orders very soon! Thanks LeatherGoodsConnection!
I got the belts today and let me just say, "Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!". Amazing, amazing belts. I look forward to doing business with you again in the future!!!
I got the belt and it fits fine.It is just what I was looking for.
Your company is quick,and informative. Thank You very much.
Received today-Very happy with workmanship. Looks great.
Received the wallet last weekend. That was fast! Plus, the wallet is just what I wanted.
I received it today. You did an excellent job. It's a fine belt and appears to be more than capable of fulfilling it's intended purpose as a gun belt. I will contact you in a few weeks and let you know how it holds up after breaking it in. Thanks for the good work and prompt service.
I would like to thank you for the wonderful quality of the belt you made for me.
I wanted to wait a month or so to make sure I still loved it and I do. Now I need a wallet to match.
I received my belt in fine shape. I really like it,
and I hope to order another in the near future.
I have purchased two wallets from LeatherGoodsConnection.com one was for personal use and the other as a gift. The quality is excellent and well worth the money spent. I am considering purchasing a third within a few months as another gift. I just can't speak enough about how impressed I am with the service and the quality. Excellent job.
Received - great belt! I may have to order a couple more in other color

Received the belt and it looks great! Thanks for great workmanship and service. Really appreciate your use of Chicago screws instead of cheap snaps.
Just wanted to drop a note of Thanks! I love my new bag. While I was waiitng for your website to take orders again, I looked around and found absolutely nothing and now I have the perfect bag for me.
Thanks again, Jackie
The Orange belt is perfect! Thanks! for making it so
organge and getting it to me right on time. I really
appreciate it and look forward to making more belt
buckles in the future.
I love the wallet. The quality is better than i expected. Well worth the price. THANK YOU!
Bill - we received the belt yesterday. Really outstanding workmanship! Thank you. Alan Andersen
I received my order promptly and wanted to say thank you and tell you how perfect the items are. I've been looking for the key holders since Volvo used to give out something similar in the 90's. Again, I appreciate the swiftness of the shipment and quality of the items. I have your site bookmarked!
I just received my harness belt and I am pleased beyond expectations...beautiful! Let me tell you, I have done business with other leather providers and their work is but a product. Your leather work is craftsmanship and I can't express just how much I appreciate having it. Thanks also for the quick response. Next, I would like you to design a retro 60s' wrist-watch band for me... but first I need to buy the watch.
Hi Henry, I received my belt and needless to say I am very pleased and impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of it. It is not what one sees in local stores, Orvis or LL Bean. I wish to dress up the belt as I feel the brass roller buckle does not do the superb leather justice. Please let me know the cost of the #1, 4 pc.,3/4" buckle set Thanks again for a superbly crafted product. Best regards, Jerry
I have received my long long belt very pleased with it and craftmenship
Got My Wallet today!!
AND I'm a Mighty Happy Puppy!!
I received my belt today - excellent workmanship! I am very pleased. I have a number of ranger belts, purchased over the years, but none can match yours. Thank you for the prompt turn-around on my order. You can be assured that I will be ordering another in the near future.
Great service - thank you.
My wife, Debi, gave me one of your ranger belts for my birthday. It is truly a work of art! I'm hardly a cowboy, although I've lived in Texas all my life. I'm not wearing boots for anybody, but I did go buy some light brown shoes with wheat stitching to match the billets and a Zuni inlaid buckle set to top it off. Thanks for everything,
I received my black knapsack (large backpack) yesterday. Workmanship amd design are top knotch. I was not disappointed and my expectations have been exceded. Thanks again. I'm sure this ol' bag and I will see more then a few miles that we both have left on this earth. Then hopefully the bag will pass to my son, where it can go on riding from my Road King to his.Okie doke. Be well.
Until the next time.....Bob Gaube
Thanks for the 1st class belts I have got today ! Fantastic quality !!
Thomas Spintig, Wiesbaden / Germany
Thanks a for the great belt,
I've been suffering with sub-par belts after my trusty handmade belt finally died after many years of use. I look forward to having this one for many years.
Thank you, Bill.
Received the belt today!
Got to be the greatest belt I've ever
owned! I'll definately be back for more!
Thanks again, Mike Imler
Received the key case today and it is as nice as advertised. Many thanks!
THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS PERFECT IN EVERY WAY AND I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR . WOULD DEFINITELY DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY AGAIN. gAVE THE BUSINESS CARD WITH THE ITEM TO MY DAD ,SO IF HE WANTS TO GET ANOTHER ONE HE COULD FIND IT WITHOUT HAVING TO SEARCH ALL OVER.
Hi, I just wanted to let you know I received the backpack today.
I love it! Nice workmanship, I will plan on ordering from your
One of the best sites I've seen on the internet for ordering a custom made item to fit you properly, and for selection, quality, and customer satisfaction. I would rate this merchant very high in all areas for this type of purchase. A pleasure to find and do business with this store.
I just recieved my wallet today, thank you henry. fine craftmanship, a rare quality in todays world. I know it will last for many years to come . thank you once again
Kenny from N.J.
I got the belt, I love the belt, I've worn the belt every day so far.
Thanks for the great work.
I got the belts ('straps') a week or two ago and have been meaning to write to tell you how great they are -- in fact, they're AWESOME. Thank you for an excellent product and wonderful service -- much appreciated.
Belt arrived yesterday. Perfect in every way. Great fit and quality. Having a great website probably made the fit so easy. Can't say enough!
I just wanted to let you know that I received the belt today. it was far better quality than I had expected. I plan to purchase more belts from you in the future. I really appreciate the speedy delivery. again I can't say enough about how happy I am about the whole experience. we need more sites on the internet that are as prompt as you have been.
I received it today! I just wanted to tell you that it is beautiful - materials, construction, aesthetics. Thank you very much. Now I will have to go back to your site and order some belts!
All the best,
Belt arrived today, and it fit just right and looks great. Thanks.
Wonderful wallet and belt. Quick shipping, good price, great quality. Would definitely purchase from again.
I received my handbag yesterday and I love it! You are a wonderful craftsman!
Even though your website is excellent, It's very difficult to have a visual from the internet. I am totally satisfied and feel it is even better than the photos on the web.
Thank you. I plan to use it for many years to come!
Received my bag today. It is exactly what I had hoped to receive. Very pleased with the quality of the leather and the workmanship.
Vonda H. Blackburn
Excellent product, fantastic customer service and very quick delivery. Im looking forward to doing more business with them.
From 1st base, Bill was 100% responsive, truthful, easy to understand, and a absolute delight to do business with - the product was beautiful, top quality and priced appropiately - every man should own at least one belt of this quality - will order again and recommend.
JOHN M. JEFFERSON, ABR CRS GRI
Thanks for the wallet I just recieved. I have ordered several wallets from you now (one for myself and the rest gifts for others). The quality of your products is superior. The only way to appreciate this fully is by seeing and using them in person. Thanks again for an excellent service. You can expect more orders from me. Thanks again, Jeremy
Bill and Henry,
Hi Henry, I received my wallet today----very nice----can't believe how fast it got here!!
We received the belt and it is beautiful....my son absolutely loves it, it fits really well,
and we really appreciate all your efforts. Thanks again for all your hard work and we
will definitely pass the word along about the quality of your products. Have a good
My husband and I both LOVE the wallet you made. Thank you!
Carol and Bill Denton
Excellent quality. Attentive service. A refreshing connection between personal craftsmanship and online efficiency.
Wanted to drop you a line and say I've received the belt and I'm very pleased. The quality of work and materials used are excellent and are hard to find today. I will enjoy wearing for years. Thank you again and Happy New Year!
I recieved my wallet and belt Tues. the 26th of December. Thank you for the prompt delivery, for two very fine products, and for keeping the art of craftmanship alive in this country. If I ever need replacement for my wallet and belt, I will surely be a returning customer.
Happy New Year,
Thank you so much for your quick service. In spite of my ordering a custom belt at the last minute, it arrived in time for Christmas. It is exactly what my fiancï¿½ wanted. He's ordered numerous other custom belts and the one you made is by and far the best. Thanks again,

It was such a pleasant surprise to find that someone made exactly what I was looking for. After searcing from California to Colorado, LeatherGoods Connection had a great selection of all leather wallets! All the retail stores we visited said they werent made anymore.
I just wanted to let you know that my husband called the wallet I ordered from you last year the best he's ever owned. Thanks for the quick service on the belt. Happy Holidays.
I received my coin purse today and it is perfect - a dead ringer for the one I lost a week ago today in a taxicab in Zurich Switzerland. I ordered a replacement purse on the day I returned and have received it already. Isn't the Internet wonderful?
The belt is awesome!
It's a dead ringer for the old one, and I'm really happy about the
I'm going to get one for my brother for his birthday (which is
christmas). I'll get the measurements and place the order tonight.
Thank you very much for the speedy delivery of this quality piece. I
absolutely love it.
The belt arrived. I'm sure you've heard this many times, but you do really nice work.
Want to thank you for the quick service and outstanding workmanship on my Ponderosa wallet. It has exceeded my expectations.
I've received many compliments and I look forward to many years of service/use from it.
Dear Henry -
Just wanted to let you know that I received the belt yesterday and love it! The loop
hangers are a nice design and carry the weight of the gear just fine. This makes three
belts and one checkbook from LGC, each better than their store bought counterparts. I
appreciate the care you take with your work and remain your loyal customer.
I just received the new belt you made for me from extra thick gun-belt leather. Wow, it is FABULOUS!!! I absolutely LOVE the thickness of the leather - it's so sturdy!
It's just wonderful. Thanks very much.
The belt arrived Saturday. I've gotta tellya, a belt's not a belt unless it's _real_ leather! Your belt is perfect in every way! Believe it or not, your belt is only the 2nd I've had since I made my 1st 5 braid back in '73! I used to do leather in the early '70's, tooled belts, purses, clogs, etc. I remember cutting belts and other patterns for purses and clogs, watchbands from tanned hides, dying the leather, tooling and the like. I don't miss stained fingers, but I kinda miss the feel of working with the leather, and yes, the braiding of belts too. Now I'll hand rub a little mink oil into your belt and hopefully this belt will last 33 years, like my 1st. I'm certain your belt will outlast me and my grandkids will find it after my passing and say, "Cool! I wonder how they made that!" It's great to have a real belt again!
Handcrafted is always the best!
Thanking you kindly!
I recieved my order thank you, and wanted to send a quick note to say how nice the merchandise is. The biker wallets are well made and of quality leather, and the trucker wallet is just beautiful.....gorgeous kid leather, wonderful interior and perfectly detailed with the coins.
Many many thanks.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
Hi - I tried to email yesterday, but I don't think it was successfully delivered- not sure. I received the backpack - it is wonderful! The workmanship is beyond compare - you are truly an artist. Thank you, and I will be returning - after I finish buying stuff for everybody else. Really like your website and your style of communicating w/ the readers - you are a really cool guy, Thanks!
I received my custom made purse today. It took such a short time to arrive and it's lovelier than I expected. These are really exceptional handbags.
Thank you, Jane Richmond
I just received the backpack - it is absolutely gorgeous! The workmanship is incredible - not one single stitch out of line! I am very impressed and will definitely be a returning customer. Thank you!
Just received the belt today. Fit, finish, craftsmanship are all superb. Thank you, you are a true craftsman.
If I have a few $$$ left after Christmas, I will probably order another, but truck repairs must come first I'm afraid.
Thank you again and I will pass your card along.
I just received my belt, and just wanted to say that I'm very impressed.
The quality and workmanship is excellent!
I'll be placing additional orders shortly, and will make sure to recommend
your products to my friends.
Thanks for my really stunning, classic large equestrian handbag, Henry. I had it made with a plain flap (no closure), and it's exactly what I was looking for. Lots of little nooks and cranies to put stuff and keep it organized, and simple lines that never go out of style. Perfect!
Thank you so much - you are awesome! The wallet arrived today already! The quality is beautiful. It's a pleasure doing business with you.
Mary Karen McQuiston
"An absolutely gorgeous belt. Prompt shipping and excellent customer care".
Feel free to quote on your site. Circulating URL.
Thanks for the chain wallet! It's perfect! I'm pleased that true artisans are still out there, because there are many of us sick to death of the worthless junk that passes for leather goods these days. Thanks for adopting the internet so we can find you! There are lots of us out there. I'll pass you right a long to anyone I know needing anything leather!
Received the belt today. Thank you. It is perfect. I am so glad I didn't spend another $100 on a Coach belt made in China.
Thank goodness for the American craftsman.
Have a great holiday season.
Bill, Henry -
The belt arrived today and it is beautiful! Thanks for fitting it to my
oddball buckle. This will be a gift and I can't wait to give it away.
I got the belt OK last time I was in England. Wonderful bit of kit it is too. I'm very pleased with it.
You assumed correctly with the centre bar buckle in that 2 floating keepers were required.
It's a pleaseure doing business with you and I have no doubt we will do more business in the future.
Bill: I received the belt. Fits great, looks great, is great.
Thank you Henry! You are quite literally the most responsive, accommodating person I have done business with in a very long time. I've submitted the additional order with a request for a keeper in the comments field.
My handbag is home now. Thanks for the repair . . . it's amazing! I really had to look CLOSE to find it. And you even returned the little yellow clip that I had attached my note with . . . I wouldn't have missed it, but thanks just the same. Anyway, thanks again for restoring my bag to it's original beautiful self! The substitute I used was a distant second!
Thank you. I received the belt today. It was exactly as described and I am certain I will enjoy it, and will certainly keep and share your contact information.
Very good quality workmanship. Every thing was as advertised, color, shipping time, great leather. The buckle was even better looking than the picture.
I would definetly by other leather goods here again.
Michael T Bundy
Just to say THANK YOU so much for being so generous in sharing the techniques of constructing handbags on your website. I'm interested in handbag construction, and your photos and explanations helped me immensely.
Once again, thank you!
The wallet I ordered from you is exactly what I was looking for. It should hold up well and I have showing it off to all my friends. It is breaking in nicely and becoming more comfortable in my pocket. I have ordered a better quality chain that I believe will compliment the wallet nicely. I placed an order for a 15" King's Braid chain in Stainless Steel from Dreamseeker, you can view an example of it here: http://www.maileofthedreamseeker.com/designs/kingsbraid.html
Thank you for your fine products and excellent costumer service. I will certainly buy from you again and tell all my friends about you.
The braided strap is a nice detail and the proportions are just right on this great style. The craftsmanship, as always, speaks for itself.
It is a very fine belt. The craftsmanship in it is quite evident. I have been looking for a belt like it for several years. I have worn it just about every day since I received it and have received a few positive comments on its look and styling. Thanks and regards,
*THIS IS A GORGEOUS BELT I JUST RECEIVED.*
*THANKS SO MUCH. WILL BE A WORKING ELECTRICIAN'S EVERYDAY BELT.*
** *WONDERING WHY YOU DO NOT STAMP SIZE AND, MAYBE, A SIGNATURE AND MFR DATE ON THE BACK SIDE.*
*I THINK PEOPLE WOULD REALLY LIKE THAT.*
** *I AM JUST GLAD MY DAD NEVER HAD A BELT LIKE THIS, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!!*
** *THANKS AGAIN,*
*MICHAEL T ROBERTS ELECTRIC*
The bags are just as pictured/described and well made. I gave both away as gifts and the fashionistas who received them were thrilled!
Delaney La Rosa
Got the belt earlier this week. Sorry for the delay in expressing my
pleasure when I saw it. It fits great and looks terrific! Another great
job! Thanks again and I will be in touch.
Thanks for the great Sam Brown and the belt! They are perfectly crafted. I appreciate your making my custom order.
Rex (Loren) Cameron
I really appreciate the obvious concern you have demonstrated in our
discussions involving the crafting my belts. Craftsmanship and customer
service are pretty much lost arts anymore. It has been refreshing
experiencing them again and doing business with you. I will be back as a
customer again. I will be sending pictures to Henry this week of my
wallet to see what his take is on this project!
Thanks again and look forward to doing business with you soon
I just received the new purse you made for me. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Your
workmanship continues to be exquisite, and the outside back pocket is
perfect. Thanks for continuing to make your artistry and crafting skills
available. You are amazing!
Received the belts today. As you stated they are beautifully crafted. What a great job! I am impressed! You did not dissappoint. Looking forward to seeing how the other belt looks!
Just wanted to let you know I got the belts and they fit perfect and top notch quality work. I plan on ordering at least 1 more. Thanks, again for your help and most importantly for getting me to provide the correct info.
Unbelievable customer service............If you ever need a recommendation or a reference let me know if I can help.
The ranger belt that you made for me arrived and it is excellent.
I just received the belt, this is my second order from you, and the quality
and value is definitely amazing!! I ordered it unstained and it is exactly
how I want it! Very very nice!
Got it...beautifully made!
Just got my handbag yesterday. I LOVE it!! It is so much nicer than you could ever depict on your site. Really love the lining material.....That's not going to rip or tear like the flimsy stuff you see in most purses! And I don't know if those "key leashes" were standard for you or not, but if you put them in just for me, VERY much appreciated!!
Thanks so much!! Couldn't be happier with it!
Hi Mr. Hibbard!
I love your website :)
I absolutely chuckled the whole time I was reading your "ordering info" section. Until of course, I have to put my own question into words; trying very hard not to sound like one of those idiots...
I don't know if you'll be able to help me.
I have had a heck of a time finding a Chicago Screw that will fit my friend's belt. Do you sell these screws individually? If you do, can you tell me how to measure them so I get the correct size - I've tried two already and if it's not right in front of me it's difficult to gauge. I do know that it is silver or nickel, not brass, but that's about all I know.
If you need to sell them in small bundles I would still be interested, I guess a few spare screws couldn't hurt! (I guess we have all been there...)
I am not in any huge rush, please contact me, any form, whenever it's convenient for you!
Thanks in advance :)
Thanks for hangng in there with me, I know it was a probally tougher than most orders.
I appreciate it and will be looking forward to getting the belts.
Thanks again for your persistance and patience,
got my Vaja case back today,nice job on the repair!
many thanks and best wishes,
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE TALENT YOU HAVE IN MAKING BELTS.
MY HUSBAND JUST LOVES HIS NEW BELT. IT FIT PERFECT.
WE WILL KEEP YOU IN MIND, AND TELL ALL OUR FRIENDS ABOUT YOU.
THANKS AGAIN. SUSIE
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you! I received the wallet Friday and it's absolutely beautiful! The pictures certainly do not give the actual product justice! Exactly what I wanted - it's a birthday gift so I'm very excited to give it to my boyfriend!!
Thank you so much for the fabulous and prompt service!
Leslie A. Bartley
Just wanted to say I received the wallet on Friday. It's just what I wanted and it's even nicer in person than it shows on the website. I'm just thrilled! I hope my brother will like it as much as I do - I'm sure he'll love it.
Because I'm so impressed with your product I am now thinking of Christmas purchases for other family members. Thanks!
UPS delivered my backpack today. Thank you ï¿½ fabulous workmanship!
Subject: Fish Skin Wallets
A subject from the past eh?
Prior to having you make wallets for us, I bought a handbag for my wife, a 2 pocket zippered handbag in brown. The bag has been fantastic and still shows no signs of wear. Truly a great investment, but I'm sure you hear that all the time.
Anyway, Karen managed to catch the strap in a car door and it is now cut, half way through. I need another strap, in black.
Please let me know the price of a replacement strap so I can order one.
Haven't had much luck with the wallets, but it was a good try. I've carried the prototype you made since the time I received it. The leather is wearing very well and the finish is amazingly durable. It is really a great product...
Let me know on the handbag strap.
Received belt today and it is beautiful. You are to be congratulated. Great craftsmanship. Thank you!
Good morning Bill,
Just to let you know that the (Dark Brown 1 ï¿½" / Brass Buckle) leather belt that I ordered late last month had arrived over the weekend.
I had looked for a plain leather belt over here in the UK to replace the one that I've had for over 15 years.
All the belts that I had seen were either fairly poor quality, thin material or just looked too
flashy (Coloured studs, stripes and buttons etc...)
The belt is exactly what I was after and your craftsmanship is first rate.
I'll be able to wear the belt in a fortnight, as it's a birthday present and
if anyone comments on it, I'll give them your details.
Thanks once again for a top service and a quality item.
I received the buckle and Chicago screws today. I must tell you that I was not just pleasantly surprised, but actually very much impressed by your attention and your service. You were about the 10th belt maker I found on the web; but the only one who seemed to care for an unusual order.
Let me promise that if I ever need another piece of leather goods, be it a bag, a custom belt, whatever, you and your company will be the first and only one I contact. Your web site shows the same care, and is funny to boot. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Again, my thanks to you. If you want to include this letter, or parts of it, as a reference, feel free to do so.
WOLFRAM HARTWIG, PHD
I received my handbag on September 28th and it's great. I'm very impressed with the quality of the product and the leather itself.
You were right, I am very pleased with it and I will not be returning it.
Thanks again and maybe I can get some of my friends to order from you too.
Thank you for making these wonderful products. I was thrilled to find your site. About a year ago I bought some cheap imported belts that quickly disintegrated. So I recently bought two of your belts. I've been very happy with them so far. You make and sell excellent products. Thank you.
The belt arrived this morning. It is great and fits perfectly. It even feels
great and is easy to secure with the buckle. "The quality remains long after the price is forgotten".
Have a great day.
I received them Friday.
As I arrived home for lunch, I thought maybe I should check the mail box.
There they were. I wore the Black one when I returned to work. It was noticed immediately.
Excellent product, I was so impressed I bought a second wallet. Delivery is a couple days, customer service is unbelievable and the website is very user friendly.
I am utterly delighted - the smell of the polish burst out of the box as soon as I got it. The leather is such good quality.
They look magnificent and my wife is stunned - always good for me - The belt for the bear creek buckle - looks superb as well.
Thank you so much for such outstanding craftsmanship and such quality of work. I wish the rest of the world followed such standards.
I received the belts today. I love them. They're nicely crafted out of quality leather, and they fit perfectly.
My tapered harness leather belt arrived. Wow do my custom Hopi conchos and
ranger set look great on this. Measurement info was right on.
I'll be ordering a tapered ranger belt soon -- for another custom set.
Yeah, it helps to have Native American friends who are artists.
Mary Ann Unger
just got back in town from vacation and my ranger belt was waiting. I have searched for years for the "perfect belt". I own a half dozen various ranger belts, and while they are nice, they all leave something to be desired. Let me compliment you on the perfect belt. I could not ask for anything more. Even the 4 piece buckle set rivals a 4 piece silver Vogt set that I own in looks. I tried it on with my sidearm and I am 100% satisfied with how sturdy the belt is under the weight of a pistol, magazine, handcuffs, cellphone, etc.
Your website is extremely accurate in depicting your merchandise and the sizing instructions are near idiot proof. In the age of shady internet vendors it is refreshing to find someone who can back up their claims with top notch quality. Money well spent. - A customer for life.

Just a quick line to let you know my black ponderosa truckerï¿½s wallet arrived safe and sound to the UK.
Very, very impressed. Really fine quality leather. Will no doubt only get softer and gain more character as the years go by.
You will have also just received an order for a friend of mine who lives nearby (Chris White ï¿½ Hereford) Told you I would recommend you!
More orders to come no doubt.
Cheers & thanks again
My belt was received today and it was everything I expected it to be,
Belt has arrived...
and I am impressed. It has the feel and disposition of my Sam Brown, and it will no doubt be one of my cherished items to the end. Thanks again Bill. You have a real class act there, including your outstanding web site, and superb craftsmanship. As I have said, I will be looking for an authentic Ranger design belt in the future, and I will definetly give you the assignment.
Thanks again, Rich, 821st Air Force Rangers, Safe Side
My items arrived yesterday in England - all present and correct, in excellent condition and remarkably promptly. Your business deserves to thrive - I shall recommend your craftmanship to others here!
Thank you so much for the leather envelope you made for me! I received it in the mail today and it is absolutely perfect! I think I would be interested in another one, soon. The craftsmanship is unbelievable and I am so impressed at how great it looks. I told my sister about it and I think that when I do make another order, it may be for more than one.
We received the belt today. Thank you so much for the fine work! My son is
very pleased with the belt. And I am so glad you took the initiative to add
a keeper. I hadn't thought the way the buckle worked would require one, but
realized after attaching it, that it in fact, does! So thank you for
thinking of that, too.
The belt came out beautiful, and it even looks 100x better than the belt that I was previously using w/ the buckle. You were a pleasure to do business with. I will keep you in mind for the future and will recommend others.
The belt arrived today safe and sound. Gorgeous belt, and unbelievable quality of leather, many thanks for this lovely item!
I received the working man's wallet a few days ago. It is amazing. I am very happy with the look and feel and overall product. Thanks for all your help in my choices.
My wife is extremely pleased with her new belt, and I find it beautiful. I am especially impressed by the fast turn-around time. Thank you, as well, for shining up her buckle set; that was beyond the call of duty.
We shall recommend you to our friends, and probably send you some more work for us, as well.
I recieved the belt and I must say I LOVE IT!!! Thanks!
Received today. Wow, that was fast. Love the belt - ahh the smell and feel of leather.
This shopping experience could not have been better!! I will certainly return to this site in the future.
I am very happy with the previous belt, the leather is thicker than my belts from other belt
makers, and the edge finish is better.
Smooth, easy process. Great product. Promptly received exactly what I expected. No hitches, no glitches.
Thank you for the contact with Roger Folmar. It turns out that he was the same person that I purchased my first leather from in 1976 at Endocot-Johnston in Binghamton N.Y. back when I began Cellar Leather Seller out of my cellar in Cortland N.Y. Its a small world and again I thank you for your information.
The belts are great,I will be ordering some more soon thank you.
I want to thank you so much for my beautiful alligator purse! I am so proud to wear it and everyone is amazed at the leather and your workmanship.
Do you have a little leather piece stamped with your name that I could attach to the key ring? I would appreciate having that to name my original designer!
Your web site is the best one I have ever seen. As an old leatherworker, I appreciate your site and your photos. I also use Bridle leather. Mine comes from Weaver. Great source and great service.
I received my new belt today, and it is GREAT. Easily one of the nicest and best
made belts I have ever owned.
Thank you very much.
I know I will be ordering more items in the future.
Calgary, AB Canada
Just came home from a short vacation and your belt was here waiting for me. All I can say, is Thank You. It looks ans fits great. I haven't worn a belt that fits in such a long time that I dont know too act. Thank you again. We will do business again.
Just wanted to let you know that I recieved the belt today and its
perfect. Thank you for great and accurate service and for accomodating
all my requests.
Wallet arrived yesterday, it looks great. It's replacing a buffalo leather wallet I have used for the last 15 years.
Thanks for the very personable services. After reading through the site, I found myself comfortable with you and the services you offer. I'll be sure to leave positive feedback about that even if the wallet isn't everything I had hoped for (which I'm sure won't be the case).
Thanks for the personable services,
Thank you for the ladieï¿½s clutch wallet! The leather is beautiful and I really appreciate the fact that it was made by hand by someone right here in the USA. I hope someday to order a purse from you as well!
I got my belt today. I have already had several compliments on it. Thanks so much.
The case arrived today in good condition and looking great.
Denmark Western Australia
I'd just like to thank you for sending my beautiful belt so promptly. I appreciate your professionalism. Ellen Mannion
My new belt came this afternoon. It is EVERYTHING that I had hoped for ... an exact duplicate of one given to me in 1972. The only difference between the new belt and old one is that the new one is 2" longer. I am hoping that this belt will last as long as the last one ... if so, I will never have to replace it because it will outlast me.
Thank you for the great service and great product!
I just received the order i placed on july 29th today is aug, 2nd.
I wish i would have found your website in April. I placed an order on Lollipopleather.com for a wallet for my husband for our anniversary. The anniversary came and went. E-mail after E-mail were exchanged with them, excuse after excuse. As of the 28th of july 3 months after placing my order, the last straw was they are in the process of moving.
The next day i find your site, what a god send i place my order and in 4 days i got my order. 4 days from Georgia 3 months and counting from Florida.
My husband loves his "GIFT"
I give you 10 star rating I will order from you again
Thanks again you saved the day.
My handbag came on Friday and now I know what all the fuss about how good they feel is.
My girlfriend flipped over the Womens Clutch Purse Wallet. Shes a very hip girl, does most of her shopping in thrift stores, wears a strange assortment of jewelry Ive never been able to make sense of, and looks, in the end, terrific, but Ive always been afraid to buy things for her. Her pickiness is entirely unpredictable. And anyway, she loves the wallet. Uses it every day. Looks longingly at me when she pulls it out of her purse (one of many bought in thrift stores, incidentally). So, thank you. I think my next bad-purchase-choice will be more easily forgiven in light of this one.
My handbag arrived today and it's beautiful! I've spent years looking for the perfect handbag, and this absolutely is the one! Thank you very much!
You have made me the perfect hand bag.
The workmen ship is great. Just the right size. I love the color of the
leather. I am glad I went with the cedar as main color. The leather is so
soft to the touch.
I am going to have you make me another one in the future.
I will recommend your handbags to everyone that I know is looking for one.
There is nothing like a hand made handbag. I have been looking for one like
this for several years. I am glad I found your web site.
Thank you very much.
I have never waited for an order with such excitement and anticipation before. When my Maxi Tote arrived today all my expectations were fulfilled. I never had a chance to select exactly what I wanted in a bag -- down to the strap size -- and this is the bag I have been looking for. It compares favorably to the Coach bags I used to buy. Actually, I took a look at my old Coach "binocular bag" and your workmanship is not only better -- the lining, the D-rings, the straps -- but the price is more affordable. Thank you so very much.
I second that emotion on the Leather Hobo handbag...
just received my black one yesterday and it's perfect.
The size is just right - not too big or too small.
And I love the flat bottom that sits nice and stable
wherever you set it. Leather, workmanship, style...
all excellent, and I couldn't be happier.
I just received my forest green leather hobo handbag today. It is gorgeous and I can't stop touching it! Its funny how important it is to like my handbag, but given that its something I wear everyday, like a good pair of jeans, or a closer analogy, a good bra, I guess its not surprising. Its got to be comfortable, functional and personal and I have to love it or its worthless. So thank you for your fine craftsmanship. Its hard to convey how meaningful it is to me that I can turn away from the Targets, mall department stores or in this case previously, the Coach store, to buy something that is made just for me. I'm already looking forward to my next handbag....any chance you'll expand the range of leather colors available? There's nothing like a good red leather bag.
(Now that's a feed back, that's going to be hard to beat. I told you I couldn't write this stuff myself.)
Thanks for the notice. Your website was a great selling tool. I looked at several stores and web sites for a good looking belt. Your website was very informative, had lots of pictures so I could get an idea about the product, and the ordering process was very easy. I am very excited about getting my hands on the finished product.
We received our squeeze purses. They are exactly what we wanted. We plan to order from you again in the future. Thank you for the terrific service!
I received the belt and I'm very happy with it. You do beautiful workmanship.
I should've sent you this note some time ago, but I work 12 hour shifts and lose track of days, sometimes. I wanted to let you know that the belt had arrived, and is very fine. It fits perfectly with my kilt, and a couple of folks have expressed interest in knowing where they could get one like it.
Thanks again for your time and your fine craftsmanship.
My handbag arrived today, and I absolutely love it!!! Thank you so much. I've been looking for years for the "right" handbag; I'm so glad I came across your website.
My son Glen ordered a belt for me from you and I am really pleased with the material, your workmanship and attention to detail!
Thanks for "doing it right" of which there is not enough anymore. Your pride of craftsmanship is evident.
My previous order was a custom belt. It is outstanding! Keep craftsmanship alive!!!
(Belt from May 19, 2005, so over 1 year old and still happy)
Well, tried the baking powder and then my husband sponged it with oil and viola! Thank you for the idea, it has a rathered leathered look to it, but perfectly usable.
You make good stuff Henry Hibbard. You make good stuff.
Received my belt today. Fantastic workmanship. You were right about the screw studs on your website - much better than the press studs on my old belt. It really is a great bit of kit. Given the years my old, cheap belt lasted its quite possible I'll never need another. (Though maybe I'll come back to you for a second one in black).
The belt fits great and looks great!! When I need another I'll be looking up your website again.
Recieved belt and gave it to my husband for our anniversary yesterday---he thought it was beautiful and the workmanship and quality brought tears to his eyes--truly wonderful, thanks.
(No... I think it was because he thinks you are truly wonderful.)
Thank you Henry for doing such a beautiful job with my belt. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Just received my new belt today, very nice and very pleased with the workmanship and appearance. Its more than I expected!
My custom bag was assembled, dispatched and received astonishingly quickly. The charge for addtional features was more than reasonable. I cannot recommend this merchant highly enough.
The custom ranger belt you made for me arrived yesterday and it looks great. The 2ï¿½" width fits the wide belt loops on my kilt just right. Your clean and precise workmanship will make me proud to wear this belt . . . and on a kilt, you know people will be looking! I just ordered a pair of harness belts to go with my more traditional pants. Thanks again!
Henry, this belt is absolutely gorgeous ï¿½ far beyond what I expected. Excellent work! And thank you so much.
I recieved the custom change purse I ordered from you in the
mail today, and just wanted to let you know that it's perfect!
Thanks so much for helping me come up with exactly what I
needed. It's great, and my dad is going to love it. I'm
always a little wary about ordering things off the Internet,
but this went really well. I'll keep your store in mind next
time I need something similar. Thanks again!
Thank you so much for all you have done. Like I said earlier, I have been as far as Canada to try and get this done and YOU are the only person that would even do it. I live in the high desert in CA and NO ONE here thouhgt it could even be done and let me remind you that it has been months trying to get it. So thank you very much and if you approve I am going to show it to the 3 places here in town that wanted to see it "IF" I was able to get it made. and give them your card. they told me that they always get request like this, but don;t know where to send people. Thank you again.. I'm sure if I need anything else I will be calling on you first..
Got the belt - looks great and the size is perfect. I'll have some friends ordering soon.
Hi, received belt and billfolds today, super nice quality leather, super workmanship, will order from you in the future, Thank You
Henry, today I received the handbag that I ordered. Thanks for the quick
delivery. I'm very pleased with this handbag, as I was with the others
that I ordered. I especially love how you added the suede to the shoulder
straps. The suede really makes a difference and helps to keep the straps
up on my shoulder. I will certainly continue to check out your website and
recommend you to family and friends.
I received the belt from you today and Iï¿½m very pleased with it. Everything is exactly as requested. Your work is the best I have seen. Thanks for a very pleasant transaction. Hope to do business with you again.
I received the belt this afternoon. It's beautiful, well constructed and fits perfectly. I too am a craftsman so I truly appreciate quality workmanship. I'm glad I finally found your web site after looking at all the cheap junk out there. Thank you!
I am very thrilled with my new belt and George is thrilled with his new wallet. He also really loves the belt you made for him a few months ago. Thank you, Mr. Hibbard, for your fine workmanship and speedy delivery.
Leslie Harper and George Ganzle
I was very pleased with the communication I received from Leather Goods Connection before I purchased my items. Once I ordered by bags, they came faster than I expected and I was thrilled with everything. So thrilled that I ordered another bag! Will certainly continue checking out their website. Thanks!
Henry: Got your belt today, its a beauty. Love the color. We'll do business again when I can save up a few bucks. Needed a new belt in the worst way. Thanks for the prompt action.
Received them Henry! Can't believe how quickly you got them to me. I
already have my eyes on another one of your bags. You'll be hearing from
me again!! Thanks so much!
Mary Slane-Roache (Murphy)
Comment: This is our second order from you and we really like the belt you made on the first order. Now I am getting a belt for me and a wallet for George.
This is my second order with this seller and is no disappointment. Their leather products are high quality and just beautiful. Will order from them again.
Mary Jane Blair
Received, and wearing it today. It is perfect. Thank you very much.
Leather Goods Connection has the best belts made anwhere and will last a lifetime. Web site is great and you get your items custom made exactly how you ordered it. Many options available. I ordered a belt for military use and I am sure it will see me through many years of tough service.
My belt arrived today and I have to say I am very pleased with it, a perfect fit. The quality and attention to detail is fantastic. Thank you for creating such a fine prduct for me.
i purchased a leather belt from your company two years ago and i couldn't have been more satisfied. all my buddies go through their cheapie belts within months. mine is still in better shape than my friends'. my wallets, on the other hand, are not the same story. that's why i'm looking foward to purchasing a working man leather wallet from you guys. i had one question: is it possible to get the monogram gold letters on the inside of a working man wallet? i'd like to have my initials placed but i'm not sure if it's possible from your end. hope to hear from you soon.
I received my leather wallet and change purse/pouch today and I just wanted to let you know I am thrilled with both of them. The craftmanship of the wallet is just beautiful, and, in any department store this would've cost me 2-3 times more, and it probably would've been made in Asia somewhere. I've already asked many of my friends to visit your website for other goods.
Hope to buy goods from you again!
Great Handmade Items, Quick Responce, Wouldn't go anywhere else!
A pleasure to do business with Mr. Hibbard. Very well set up website with easy instructions. Great customer service.
This leather belt is a great example of old time craftsmanship. The extra cost, over mass produced belts, is a worthy investment for anyone who appreciates the quality workmanship and attention to detail that went into it.
The belt arrived so quickly and is beautiful. I figured I was cutting it close to have it in time for my husband's birthday but I'll actually have to hide it for another week
Thank you for the magnificent work. I'm sure we'll be ordering a black one just like it!
My girlfriend LOVES it!!!! Thanks for the fine work! Two thumbs up!!!!!
Just to let you know the belt safely arrived here yesterday. And it's a perfect fit and a fine fine job in every way. I am very much obliged. I've fitted it up with a nice old set with two keepers (but lacking their original tip) from Nelson Brinkoff, and it looks great. I'm sure I'll enjoy it for many years to come.
I just received the belt you made for me this afternoon. I thought the age of hand made, custom goods was long gone, but you have renewed my faith in the pristine craftsmanship and quality that is so often lacking in the vast majority of todayï¿½s products. Thank you so much for the belt; I truly do appreciate the work and care you put into your product and it clearly shows in the end result. I definitely plan on purchasing from you again, and you can be assured that whenever a friend of mine is looking for a quality item, I will refer them straight to you.
Thanks a lot,
Wow, I really love it!!! Beautiful work, great feeling leather. Thank you so much. Nancy
Just received the belt today. A very nice and well made belt. Glad I found you.
the best shopping experience i have ever had
I received my finished belt yesterday. Thank you so much for designing it
exactly to my specifications. It fits perfect! You are a super craftsman.
I got the belt as advertised. It is a quality belt at a fair price. I couldnt be happier with this transaction.
I have dealt with this man a few times and I could not be happier i will continue to buy from him and will recommend him to my friends.
Your rating system is not very clear. Is excellent a 5 or a 1?? Its a good thing the seller is better than your rating system. I rated the seller as excellent; the product, the service, everything... (except the rating system). Remind me to avoid yahoo shopping if I ever sell something.
The harness leather belt is absolutely beautiful. The leather itself is of a very fine and sturdy quality--Ive never had another like it. And the crafsmanship is outstanding. The hand-dye and Inca tooling came out wonderfully, and the belt fits perfectly.
I received the calfskin wallet last week, and its great. The leather has nice color and texture, and the wallet fits a lot of stuff without at the same time being too large. Its the first wallet Ive had in a long time that doesnt slip out of my back pocket when I sit down!
Hi Henry, I received the belts. They are perfect; the workmanship is outstanding. Thank you and best of luck in the future. Mike
Mr. Hibbard is an amazing craftsman! The purse is much better than I possibly imagined! It is very well constructed, with amazingly soft leather. I got it in two weeks from placing the order, which is awesome considering its a handbag custom-made to my order!
They make very nice quality leather goods. I got a belt and wallet and am very pleased with the leather and workmanship.
The quality of the leather and the workmanship were reminisent of the quality I was accustomed to while living in the U.K. in the late 1950s. The overall quality is worthy of the highest praise. The cost was remarkable for its fairness. I cuold not recommend it more highly.
The laptop case you made for me is just perfect,
Henry... in every way. The leather matches my
Vagabond and I love having your "Henry" logo
tastefully placed on the side. I couldn't be happier.
And the sleeve for my iPod is perfect, too! All of
this is no great surprise - you have spoiled me with
the quality of your work and I can't carry anything
Belts came quicker than I expected -- beautiful. I may order some dress ones as well. The personal e-mail to say the belts were on there way was appreciated. Thank you. Susan Wolfrom
Henry my wife and I have bought a few things now and we really like your work I know we will be buying even more in the future thankyou for doing things the right way Russ
The stores owner contacted me to clarify my order options to insure that my order was correct. The service was so exceptional that I purchased a second belt. Will be a customer for life!
Made several orders over five years. Always quality work. Approachable. He answers the phone!
Received the belt today.I am very satisfied, your work or should I say craftsmanship is outstanding. Fine quality material and hardware. I've been looking for a genuine ranger for a while, its not something easy to find in the northeast and my tastes are more towards your part of the country and the southwest. Thank you for making me a great belt (perfect fit also) and the fast turnaround.Thanks again,Phil
Henry at Leather Goods Connection provides fast, courteous service but most of all his workmanship is of the highest quality. I always check LeatherGoodsConnection for my specialty leather needs.
Hi, Henry -
I received the goods today. The checkbook came out great! I like how you handled the
custom compartments very much, and my wife is very pleased with it also. The belt is
beautiful! One small catch is that the buckle I ordered for it attached at the midpoint
and not the end as I thought, so I lost about an inch in length and am not quite center-
hole on. This is definitely user-error on my part, but I am getting by on the #2 hole
and am now motivated to take an inch or so off the ol' waist this spring... The
alternative, I suppose, is another buckle and undoubtedly another belt. Not such a bad
thing when you think about it.
Thank you very much for your quality workmanship, it is always a pleasure doing business
Received it today thanks. My brother used to make these types of things, so I appreciate the hand-made effort. I got so annoyed when the belt I bought in a mall store turned out to be a cheap split leather, even though it was just the same cost as the one from you. I look forward to wearing this one, and maybe routing some business your way.
I received my handbag today,I actually didn't expect it so soon. It is lovely, everything I wanted in a leather bag cannot wait to use it now. Thank-you, I am going to look at wallet purses now to match my bag.
Mrs D Beever

read directions 5x - still ordered wrong.
No problem - sent it back and was corrected in less than a week.
Henryï¿½ A man I met last week uses your belts and loves ï¿½em. Says it makes him a better golfer!! Convinced me I guessï¿½ï¿½.Mike
I just received my handbag today. I love it! It is beautiful! The workmanship and leather are outstanding. I am so happy with it. I am thinking of ordering another type of handbag very soon. Maybe something a little smaller this time, like the Go Bag. I am very happy with my new handbag. Thank you!
Henry the belt is beautiful everyone loves it-------I am sure we will be getting more stuff from you. How did you learn this, not the nav. When I was a radarman I worked with the ets a lot I will be in touch to order some more for me and a pocketbook for my wife thankyou so much Russ
I got the Knife case in the mail today,, It's
perfect and thank you!!! I appreciate you took the
time to make it. I'm sure we will do business again.
Henry: Thanks for the prompt response. I am working on my ranger belt design, I would like to include the Cognac Alligator billets if still available? In your opinion, would they contrast well w/ the bridle leather strap in dk. brown w/ blk stitching? As to buckle sets, I do not have one and would like to use one of yours, some type of western theme in a four pc. configuration, any suggestions are welcome
I have several mass produced ranger style belts but after seeing your work on the Biker style belts you did for my car, I can no longer accept the factory stuff. Your belt work is the best, already visitors to my shop have commented on your work, as recently as this afternoon.
I plan to order several belts from you and after I get "dialed in" on the ordering process, you'll hear from me again. For now I wish an attractive dress belt. I'm a bit of a "cowboy" and love the western theme's...Help...Thomas
Ps: When the car comes out of the paint shop and if the Sun ever shines in the golden state, I'll send you a larger photo of your fine leather work!
I always liked ranger belts a lot but never have one (and I've been
in Houston for about a year) Doing a bit of research, i dropped
in your site.
First of all let me say I found your belts stunning!. I'm no expert, but
never saw prettier belts before. And your page rocks too. I'm neither a
law student, but reached the end of the pages.
It's impossible to ignore the huge amount of info and humor you gladly
share. As I went on reading I realized how little do we know about leather
care in general. I've copied everything (for my personal use) just in case
i need it.
This being said, I'm interested in one of your great ranger belts.
Trouble is I can only choose one (by now) My choice is the Burgundy
Bridle leather belt with a silver buckle (end bar). I think you deserve to
know what kind of people like your belts. Well, I'm 60.
Please quote total price including insured shipment to Barcelona, Spain
(zip 08021). If I can buy it without having to sell the house, i'll send the
measure, taked as you clearly explain in your page.
Thanks for your help and kudos for the belts!
Henry, This is a great belt ! Fit perfect, looks good, I must have good taste. Good craftsmanship and simple easy to order directions.
I received my purse today. It is beautiful!! I love the extra long shoulder strap and the construction is really nicely done. Thanks so much for the FAST receipt of my custom order.
Great merchant to deal with, communication was excellant and delivery was fast. The item purchased was of top-of-the-line quality and I would deffffinately purchase from this company again.
Sam L. Duke
I am very happy with my back pack purse. It was really handcrafted and I will order another one soon.
I wish that I would have found LeatherGoodsConnection.com much sooner. I have been searching for my perfect handbag - a handbag that meets every one of the criteria I want in a handbag - FOREVER. Obviously I had not thought about looking on the internet to find a leather crafts-person such as Henry. I ordered the MAXI Tote bag with a couple of modifications and all were done to my satisfaction and joy! I no longer need to continue what seemed to be a never ending search for the handbag of my dreams.
I am very grateful that I stumbled across your web page through eBay. I have been searching for a number of years for a leather handbag that had exactly what I required for the perfect handbag. I have a RELIC brand canvas bag, much smaller than the one I ordered, however the bag had what I wanted for a handbag for me.
I ordered the MAXI TOTE BAG with exactly the features I wanted. Do you know how difficult it is to find a handbag with straps that are not only adjustable, but will also fit over a bulky winter coat?
I love the handbag!! It is perfect and my search for the perfect handbag. When the time arrives for a "new perfect handbag" I will know exactly where to find it; at leathergoodsconnection.com.
RATING: Excellent. The handbag was made to meet my requirements. Delivery was prompt. I was kept informed of the progress of the bag I had ordered and when to expect it. I will DEFINITELY be a return customer.
I knew when I looked through your website that you offered a top-notch product... you delivered the goods! My wife is thrilled with her belts. Great quality that looks to last a lifetime.
If my New Year's resolution holds up, I'll be in touch in a couple months.
Thanks for a great product!
I received both my belts in todays post.
I am very pleasantly surprised - "Practice makes perfect". This second belt is much better, if that is possible, than the first. The workmanship - Stitching, cutting (Especially the flare - An absolutely a perfect fit to my custom solid gold buckle), and general finish are simply outstanding. I realize that the flare portion was probably a pain in the butt for you, but I truly believe it makes all the difference in the world - Sets this belt far above others.
I can't thank you enough for your fantastic quality. It's always scary ordering from an unknown - but you exceeded our expectations. My wife is thrilled with the two belts I ordered. Her designer buckle warranted the best quality belt and you delivered. I will see how my New Year's resolution continues... and then I will be contacting you for some belts for me!
I received the package today.... the backpack is beautiful- truly a work of art. I love it! Thank you so very much for putting up with my queries and for producing such a nice bag for me.
Excellent service, excellent goods (still have to check durability, but things look good so far)
Alright, it has to be said: If you appreciate
hand-crafted leather goods that exemplify a devotion
to craftsmanship and a seasoned eye with attention to
details and aesthetic sensibility, you cannot go wrong
with Henry. I ordered 2 harness belts a few weeks ago
and was so pleased to get them in the mail and start
living with them. If you don't have piles of money to
waste, if you love the idea of collaborating on a
custom-made belt from scratch, if you are tired of
settling for "good-enough" mass-produced, soul-less
belts, then you really should consider ordering a belt
here. You really feel like you are communicating with
someone who cares about your requests and shares your
interest in designing the perfect belt. Somehow
that's all possible on-line! Thanks so much
Henry--I'm really happy with the belts.
Ian in Brooklyn
I recieved my beautiful purse today. It is a work of art, much more than I expected.
Thank you very much. I have to make sure to keep it away from my new puppy.
I ordered my product by email on the weekend. LeatherGoods reviewed my order and emailed back a recommendation/modification on that same day, the weekend. I was impressed that LeatherGoods responded quickly outside normal business hours. I received an email as my order was shipped. I will do business with LeatherGoods in the future... BTW- the product was well made and otherwise difficult to find. I expect good products and service. LeatherGoods exceeded my expectations.
Curtis G. Farrar
I just received the beautiful Harley Hobo! It is absolutely fabulous. The color is wonderful and I love the detail that you added to the center seam. Thank you so much for your quick service and exceptional handiwork. I will definitely be recommending your products to my friends and family!
The Leather Check book holder I ordered is better than I expected. I received it just a few days after I placed the order. I will do business with them again.
Henry: Just a note to let you know how delighted I am with the belt you sent. You followed the specs exactly, the workmanship is flawless, and the fit is perfect. Many thanks, Charles
I received my ranger belt today and am absolutely delighted! The construction is heavy duty and workmanship is exceptional. I will definitely order another from you in the future.
I got the bag today and it's wonderful!! The bag has a rich look to it, and the workmanship is high quality. I will definitely be ordering a briefcase from you in the near future. Thanks so much!
As usual, I am very pleased with my order. The bag is exactly what I was looking for. I love the unstructured look of the tote(and the size) and the fact that I can get to things easily enough in the bag. You do such wonderful work and I am so happy I discovered you. It is so hard to find an excellent qualtiy of workmanship and leather and I found it all in your work. Thank you once again!!!
I ordered from this craftsman for the first time - a customized belt for use with a silver/turquiose buckle received as a gift. Having no similar belt to use for measuring, the web site was helpful in ordering the correct size.
I also used email for clarifications both on custom options before ordering and buckle installation after receiving the belt. Email responses were prompt and helpful.
The vendor sent emails confirming receipt of the order as well as when the completed belt was shipped.
Overall, this was an easy and accurate purchase of a custom crafted item. I would definitely use him again and recommend him for this type of merchandise.
These belts are very fine. I haven't had the like in years and couldn't find anything that came near. Wallet's good too. Thanks.
This wallet is awesome. Immediately I can tell it is in a different
league than the "nice" wallets from Bosca, Tumi, and Cole Haan I've
had in the past. Thanks, Jeremy
Jeremy R. Thompson
I just received the bag and it's beautiful. You did a remarkable job, it's great that there are still companies out there that do such work. The bag is exactly what I wanted and requested and the quality looks superb. It's a great value. Thanks, it's been a pleasure doing business with you.
I received the belt last night. It is just what I wanted and perfectly made!
I ordered a simple, plain one this time because I got a new Harley buckle for Christmas and didn't have the correct belt for it.
I will be ordering all my belts from you in the future and will refer my friends to your site.
Just received my new black Vagabond today and couldn't
be more delighted with Henry's new signature series.
It has all the elements of a really fine bag -
flawless craftsmanship, beautiful materials, and great
style. I love every detail that Henry has
incorporated into this wonderful bag, especially the
hip unstructured styling and his new, understated
logo. Typical Henry - another winner for sure!

I recieved my Ranger Belt today and wanted to say thanks.
It is of the type of quality you can only find from true craftsman like yourself. Also you did tell me the buckles were of a fine quailty for the price and you are right again.
I have several very expensive buckel sets and yours are truely hard to beat. Also your service and shipping time was
a very welcome suprise. I will be looking forward to ordering my next belt hopefully soon.
Great buying experience, solid customer service, and my wife loved her wallet. This merchant should consider adding more high-end leather goods to his existing product line, especially briefcases and wallets. I would have gladly spent more on my wifes gift if other models were offered.
I will definitely shop this merchant site again
This merchant notified me immediately that one iten I ordered was not available in the color I requested. I was quite content with the color available & received my order within 5 days, which I thought was super, especially this time of year.
I will definately do business with LeatherGoodsConnection.com again.
I got the belt yesterday. It surpassed all my hopes. Your craftsmanship and quality are exceptional. I have saved your web address for the future.
Thank You so much and have a wonderful Christmas.
Awesome is the best word to describe your work! The bag is just luscious. You are right, the interior is a knock out. I like the forest green color very much as it is a nice neutral that will go with everything. And the snaps on the pockets look great. It is the first time I have ever owned a bag like this. Looking forward to using it after Christmas. And the fanny pack and wallet are both great too. Can't wait for your spring line!
Thank you for the nice deal on such a great piece and Happy Holidays,
WOW! What beautiful work! You are making the exact bag we have been
looking to duplicate for our Mother since Dooney and Bourke and Coach
lost their minds and surrendered class for trendiness! Alas, no more
orders before Christmas. So, Leather Guru, when will you accept an
order for a Large Equestrian Bag?
I just wanted to thank you for the fast shipping and the beautiful wallet. My husband will love it. He has been asking me for a wallet that was made in the USA for the last few years and I couldn't find one I liked until I found your site.
Thank you so much & Merry Christmas!
Got it today & put on the Philmont Scout Ranch buckle I bought in '67 after hiking 10 days in the beautiful New Mexico wilderness. The quality and fit is perfect - thanks.
Another excellent experience. The belts I ordered were better than what I expected. The price was less than I would expect to pay for this type of quality. I am extremely satisfied and look forward to further dealings with this merchant.
Belt arrived to-day,fits perfect,fantastic workmanship.
Thanks for a great product.
Keep up the good work.
Once again, I am extremely pleased with my handbag. It is of a better quality than any other purse I can remember owning, and purses are my weakness, so I DO know the better brands! It's truly exquisite, and I know I will be one of your repeat customers.
I hope you have a very happy holiday.
The LeatherGoodsConnection has an excellent selection of leather goods. My handbag purchase was easy and the bag is beautiful.
I had a question for the merchant and he responded to my e-mail quickly. Im very impressed and have already recommended this merchant to my friends.

This is my second belt purchase from LeatherGoods Connection. The Quality of these products is excellent. The pricing is more than reasonable. Communication and delivery time were outstanding. Thanks Henry.

I have had two items made and both were perfect. If there was a way to rate them higher than 5, I centainly would.
Kenneth M. Cox
I received my "2 Pocket Zipper" handbag today (I was on vacation last week) and it's beautiful! I just love it! The leather is very soft and the workmanship is excellent. I will definitely order from you in the future.
I am a repeat customer with this merchant and have been delighted with everything Ive ordered. This time it was a maxi tote that I had customized a bit, and its just perfect, as I knew it would be. Always highly recommended!
This merchant is, without question, the best I have ever done business with. Quality of product was outstanding, response was the best, and the price was truly outstanding. We had searched through many stores, searching for the item, and Leather Goods had it exactly. We knew what we wanted and his web site matched perfectly. Until we looked at LeatherGoodsConnection, we wasted a lot of time and gasoline searching. Thank goodness for this vendor. We have a big family throughout the U.S. and intend to do more business with LeatherGoodsConnection, and will pass the good word to others.
I recently purchased a custom-made belt from LeatherGoodsConnection.com. The on-line instructions for ordering a custom belt were extremely clear and included definitions for terms I did not understand. The price was comparable and shipping costs reasonable. Ordering the belt with options was easy.
I received a e-mail confirmation of order receipt and another when the order was shipped. The belt arrived in the time advertised and was well packaged. The belt was made per my specifications.
This was my first purchase from this site and highly recommend it to others.
Hello Henry -
I received my handbag today (Nov. 21, 2005). The leather is beautiful and the craftsmanship is top notch! I am extremely pleased with my purchase and decision to seek out leather items "Made in the USA."
I was so excited about the bag, my husband asked me when I am planning to order my spring handbag!! You will definitely hear from me in the future.
Thank you for providing excellent customer service and a quality product.
I received the Maxi Tote Thursday. It arrived in perfect condition. The bag is beautiful. All I could say when I saw it was ï¿½WOW!ï¿½. The leather is so smooth and the stitching is lovely. I am glad I decided to get the center divider. It makes it seem like 2 bags in one. The lining is great too. The size of the Maxi Tote is just right. Other bags I had looked at were either too large or too small. Thanks for all your hard work!
I received the Ranger belt with silver buckle this morning. The workmanship is flawless and I will wear it often. This is one of those occasions where the quality of the product has exceeded my expectations.
Hope to deal with you again in the near future.
My boyfreind loved the wallet! Great quality for the price!
Merchant was very prompt answering e-mails both before and after purchase. the belt made to my specifications was outstanding. highest recommendation overall.
A totally positive experience.
In a time where too much of what we buy comes from people we will never meet, it is refreshing to buy a staple like a wallet from an honest to goodness human right here on our own soil. And at a price that is more than fair. Dealing with LeatherGoodsConnection.com was easy, and professional. I would recommend this merchant to anyone looking for quality leather products at fair prices.
The handbag that I purchased was absolutely beautiful. The quality of the leather was excellent, inside and out. Every detail was perfectly finished, from the stitching, the seams, lining, hardware, and handles, and the bag was made exactly according to the specifications that I requested.
I will definitely order from this merchant again in the future!!
I am very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the belts. They are not your average run-of-the-mill belts. The belts are custom made and it shows!
Recieved today. They look great, somehow they're almost to long. But will work as long as I don't magically lose weight. Like that's going to happen.
Beautiful Maxi Tote is everything I wanted in a large, utility bag. As usual, the workmanship is beyond compare and this will be a great bag for years and years to come.
Hello. I just received my bag and wanted to let you know that I am so pleased. The leather is gorgeous and so soft - it is truly a beautiful bag. I will definitely recommend you and will most likely be placing another order shortly.
Great views of the wallet; almost like being there.
Wallet is working out nicely and is as described.
Couldnt be more happy with my belt and the service involved when purchasing it. Always responded to my emails promptly, its not very often you get such good service these days, especially on the internet. Highly recommended.
Thank you very much
Just a quick note to say Thank You for the lovely belt, my husband Paul is really pleased with it and his Harley Davison Buckle has fitted onto it lovely.
Your workmanship is excellant. Thank you once again for your lovely work.
I recently received my belt and want to take this opportunity to commend you for the excellent craftsmanship applied to making it even better than I envisioned Although I am unused to making creative decisions, the quality options you offered made it a more than satisfactory experience. I hope that you've found this small amount of internet business mutually rewarding. Thank you.
I had an excellent shopping experience with Leather Goods Connection. The wallet was made of beautiful leather. Its obvious that much time was taken to produce such a well-made product. My e-mails got a quick response, and I recieved notification when the item was shipped.
I will definitely buy from this merchant again.
Excellent product. Good prices. Top quality product and service.
Got it today, it is terrific. Very satisfied customer.
Mark D. Perdue
Excellent and professional look and feel to the product. Sent and delivered timely. Will definitely buy from them again.
I just wanted to let you know I received my leather
zip case today. I am very impressed with the
workmanship and quality of this case. I bought the
case for my cell phone...it is a perfect fit. So, I
would like to make a suggestion: consider changing
your product description to include cell phones as
well as eye glasses. It is the perfect case for many
cell phones and the smooth, soft interior will help
prevent scratches to the easily damaged display
screens. Just a thought!
Again, thank you for a very fine product.
Thank you for the excellent belt! I havenï¿½t had a chance to wear it yet, but I am certainly happy with the quality. It is a nice looking dress belt and I like not having to worry about it splitting apart. I also appreciate you custom making the belt to my specifications.
The time taken to ensure the measurements were correct was well worth it in the end. The goods arrived well packed and were of a quality I was not expecting. Long may this company trade for because I will definitely be comming back.
I am well pleased. If need or situation occurs in the future; I will not hesitate to shop with this company again. I have already passed on the company to several people with similar interests.
(Ok, Craig... I assume that rating was intended as a joke)
If I rated you awful....................it was an awful mistake! Did you not see the comments? Before Coffee....................I must have checked 1 thinking it was the best!
Will print a retraction and very sorry I wasn't that alert!
I corrected the original review...................................again! I am sorry; a great experience in securing the Ranger Belt!
I got the belts. They are lovely and I could not be happier. Thanks so much. susi
Quick delivery. Good communication via email. Belt is well made as per specification.
Detective Bob Holland
Great service, great products will most definetly return to purchase more!!!!Thanks
Dear Henry: Belts arrived yesterday. Just like I thought they would be! Wore black today. Will wear brown tomorrow. Maybe the boys want belts for Christmas? You should start "Build A Belt "workshops at the malls. -You can build a bear but it won't hold your pants up!
I want to complement you on your fine workmanship and the very fast service. Being in the mail-order business for many years, I can appreciate a quality company.
Thanks, you have a customer for life....
My husband loves his belt. He said that the craftsmanship is immediately recognizable.
Thank you, Henry.
What a beautiful belt I received. Exactly what I ordered and superior in quality to anything I currently own. Mr. Hibbards great communication and thorough product descriptions on the web site made the purchase of a complex, (considering all of the options), custom, made by hand product a very simple, efficient and pleasurable shopping experience. The only surprise was the quality of the product , it was even better than I had hoped. I will shop here again and soon.
Great experience!! Excellent bag! The communications regarding receiving and shipping the order were good. My only request would be that I could track the package, but that was not a huge concern. It arrived just two days after I received the shipment notification. I will be buying from them again.
Custom made handbag constructed beautifully. Options easy to negotiate and priced nominally. Very responsive to emails. Very eager to please.
Purse arrived in great condition. Looks beautiful and I could not be more pleased.You are terrific!!
Thank you Mr. Hibbard,
The belt arrived yesterday. I love the belt. I will be back for more..
My new Courier arrived Saturday and was perfect in
every way - just as I knew it would be! The Ultima
leather feels wonderful and I'm hooked on your lining
material and, in fact, much prefer it to a leather
lining for durability. Once again you've created a
bag I'll be proud to carry for many years to come.
The accessories I ordered were also great and I
couldn't be happier.
I just wanted to say I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my small leather backpack. The workmanship and quality are unsurpassed by anything I have seen lately. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! You have gained another loyal client.
Dorothy in Kentucky
I wanted you to know that I received my handbag and it is far more than I expected. It is beautiful. The workmanship is outstanding and I am very pleased.
Thank you so much for such a nice product, I am sure I will be ordering more items in the future.
Excellent quality belts at an excellent price. I own a lot of belts, but the ones I purchased here are among my favorites.
If every merchant were like this one, the world would be a better place.
HENRY GREAT BELT. I WILL DEFINITELY BUY ANOTHER ONE. THANK YOU RODNEY.
Fast, helpful. Answers questions promptly. Very high quality goods. Friendly service. A+ on all counts
Informative and well organized web site. Great communications. Belt was better than described. I will be returning to Leather Goods Connection for my leather needs. Harry is great to deal with!!!
Thanks, it's beautiful and I love the extra loop you included. You manage to think of the little things that seem to make your products perfect.
I received my back pack today and I LOVE it!!! Thank you so much!! Have agreat day and I will be showing your work off!
I received my order yesterday and I am in LOVE! I am going to hit your Site
again this weekend and make up a dream list of things that I want.
Thank you so much for the quality workmanship and prompt shipping. I will
be passing your name around to all my friends!
Meredith S. Johnson
Thank you for the outstanding Hipster 6. I didn't realize how slim it would be. You certainly put out a great product.
David J. Rocca
Great transaction, fast shipping, quality exactly as represented. Will definitely do business with him again!!!
I am very happy with the belt I purchased. It is so much better than any belt I have ever owned. Unbelievable quality. From now on Leather Goods Connection is where Ill be going for my leather needs. Thanks for the great belt.
I ordered and received a belt that was customed designed to my specifications. I was able to speak with a service rep who in turn helped me get exactly what I needed and made helpful suggestions. The item was purchased, created, shipped and received in ten days. Excellent product and service.
James A Mann
Got the belt today. The quality is first class all the way. Your customers are right, there is no comparison between your belts and the "department-discount store" belts. I had also purchased a belt from a local uniform shop months ago as I was looking for a wider belt (1 3/4") and they were the only local place where I could find one. The belt was half as thick as yours and the finish cracked off. I will definitely be a repeat customer of your merchandise. Thanks for the ease of ordering as well. Your website makes it very convenient to order and you shipping time is excellent. Also, considering the quality of your belts, the price is more than worth it!
Got the wallet. Thanks, it looks awesome. My father will be thrilled.
The product was very well made -- obviously hand made - very well priced and the shipping was inexpensive and upgraded. What else can one hope for?
Richard S. Miller
Thank you Henry for your wonderful work on the belt. I've recieved it today and it looks brand new! I was always wondering where I should go for my old belts and now I've finally found a right place. I'll keep your contact in mind for any belt related works for future reference. Thanks for your wornderful job.
Very informative site. Delivery was quick, especially for a made-to-order product. Product is high quality.
Henry, I received my ranger belt today. I absolutely love it. Your work
is flawless. It fits me perfectly as well. Thank you for a great belt!
It should last me a very long time. Mike Allen
Beautiful belts. received within a couple days -- the only problem was not really understanding how to measure/predict belt size. i didnt understand or read (quite possible) the instructions and my two belts are a bit snug.
on the other hand, they provide incentive to lose a couple pounds. not a bad thing now that i think of it.
I finally returned home and unpacked my new belt. Absolutely perfect -- I don't think I could be more satisfied, and I am a very picky designer. Undoubtedly it will last me many years. Additionally, thank you for repairing my key case and wallet.
With best regards / Mit freundlichen Grï¿½ï¿½en /
Avec mes meilleures salutations,
Nevan C. Hanumara
I received my order of two belts yesterday and wanted to say "Thank you!!!". These are some darn fine belts, both in quality & workmanship and you shipped this order so quick too. Once again "Thanks" and I look forward to doing business with you again soon.

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. I plan to skid in side-ways, thoroughly used up, worn out and loudly proclaiming: WOW... WHAT A RIDE!!!"
Apparently the belt was delivered to the City Hall
mail room yesterday afternoon and I got it this
morning, and is it a BEAUT'. Everyone in the office
was also impressed.
You truly are a master artisan.
I've got to tell you, when I got the silver belt
buckle as a birthday present years ago, I had no idea
how or where to find a belt that would fit it. And
back then, I was wary about ordering something like
that on-line. I figured that a leather goods retailer
would have to hold the buckle in their hands to find
the proper belt and size to fit it.
When I phoned around trying to find someone who had
anything remotely matching what I was looking for I
ran into dead ends. Until one day I had the good
fortune to have a leather goods dealer tell me "that
buckle was designed for a ranger belt." Ranger belt?
What the heck is that?
I knew I was at the end of my journey when I googled
Ranger Belt and found your on-line store. After
seeing your work and reading your straightforward
descriptions of your work, I knew I had struck gold.
And now I have the proof. You've won me over. I just
hope you have apprentices and journeymen if you ever
decide to retire. (But honestly, Henry, don't even
think of retiring.)
Thank you so much, and may you continue to prosper.
I very recently purchased a handbag, mans wallet, and the Defender Fast Pack from LeatherGoodsConnection.com.. The over-all experience was excellent. The website is easy to navigate and the ordering process is very easy. Any questions I had were answered very quickly by e-mail. My order was filled and delivered on time and in excellent condition. The handmade handbag is beautiful....not one stitch out of place or crooked and the materials used are top quality.
Thanks, Nancy Coram
Had three belts made for my Grandsons, The quality is
superb, The service first class, It is a joy to deal with
a person who knows what he is doing. Thank you Henry
Here is a merchant who knows how to deal with a global clientele. Courteous, detailed and easy communication, does what he says heï¿½ll do. One of the best. Highly recommended.
The belt arrived today. Itï¿½s fantastic. Thanks so much. A real pleasure doing transoceanic business with you.
I have purchased leather belts from leathergoodsconnection on 2 different occasions. Both times, they were delivered sooner than expected, exactly how I ordered them, and well packaged. The products are of excellent quality and last a very long time. Excellent in every way!
The belt is GREAT! Thanks.
Hello Henry --- Got the belt today. Nice work buddy, real nice work . And, thanks to you, the fit is perfect. You'll be hearing from me again as soon as I find another buckle set. Thanks again Wallace Campbell
Henry Hibbard and LeatherGoodsConnection.com are outstanding! They offer real live personal service meaning that you can communicate directly with the person making your item to get it exactly the way you want it! The craftsmanship is superb. The prices are much less than youd expect. The service is speedy. This is just an exceptional merchant!
I just received the handbag you made, and I have never seen such beautiful work. Thank you so much,
Very ,very happy with the quality and the overall purchase experience of the belt I purchased from Leather Goods Connection. Im sure I will buy from this merchant again.
Thanks for the super fast service. Great belt. Perfect
fit. Thanks for your help over the phone as well.
Excellent product at a great price. The merchant was very helpful in answering questions and quick to deliver. I highly recommend.
Thomas J. Kadelbach
Thanks Henry. I love your leather products and will remain a faithful customer.
I consider you one of the very best on the internet and that is a very high compliment.
Excellent products and exceptional service
Albert L. Geiger
I received the belt today and it is exactly as I desired. Thank you and I will certainly do business with you in the future. Great workmanship!!!
Fun! Great experience! Henry was very patient with me! I sent numerous E-mails and he answered them promptly. Delivery was fast and easy!
I am enjoying my handbag more each day. Thank you.
The product was good quality, as described, and I received it in a timely manner. Thank you for a smooth, honest transaction!
I received the wallets and the bag. Thank you so much for the lovely bag---- it is a lovely bag -- very very lovely --- I can hardly wait for the other bags to be mailed ---- the quality, texture and workmanship is superb ----- and excellent ----- I think what was written in you web site is true ---- once we get a bag from you we will never look else where ---- I think that is perfectly true ---- the beauty in quality and design and finish are obvious to any one who sees the bag.
You must have heard the same words many times before --- still I do say them and wish to thank you very much for the lovely bag I have now and also for the two that are to follow.
I am completely satisfied with the custom belt that I ordered. Its quality was excellant and was exactly as described. I would not hesitate to recommend or order from this merchant again.
Great combination of traditional craftsmanship combined with the speed and simplicity of online ordering. A perfect belt, in my mail box in a week, for a very good price. Highly recommend!
I just wanted to say that I received my order, and am delighted with the high quality of your materials and work. Products such as yours are a rarity these days. I sincerely thank you.
Outstanding communications, professional work and great quality of goods! Second time customer who is very, very satisfied! Can't go wrong if you follow the guidance on the website.
What a perfect, hand-made belt - And it in my mailbox in less than a week!
I'm glad your capable craftsmanship and the Internet linked up. There's nothing better than getting extactly what you ask for, made to order, and good enought to last for years. Thanks.
I would like to order another exactly the same. Please send.
I was very impressed with the belt that was made to go with a ranger buckle set I had purchased in Santa Fe. Henry made me a quality reduced section ranger belt out of black harness leather with the billet mock alligator. It's really beautiful. thanks, David EVANS
The customized large backpack arrived today and I am extremely pleased wiith it. Thanks so much.
The belt arrived yesterday, as promised. It is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you so much for all your help, prompt response to my questions, and incredibly fast turnaround.
I'm sure you'll be getting more orders from our friends, and probably several more from us!
As soon as my City Handbag arrived, I began using it and I absolutely love it. The last shop where I purchased a handmade leather bag, it was unlined and unstructured. But your handbag is well designed and crafted, and it looks so beautiful and tailored. It's exactly what I've been looking for and couldn't find anywhere else. Having the custom options like the long shoulder strap and the brass fittings gave me just what I wanted at a reasonable price.
Thank you so much for my beautiful handbag. I will be recommending you to my family and friends.
I purchased the Harley Hobo handbag and was absolutely delighted, as I am with all Henry's work. Its the softest leather imaginable, and perfect in proportion, style and workmanship. I couldn't be happier!
The belt arrived in short order & was higher quality that I could have expected. It is VERY well made & put together & is absolutely beautiful. As described, it far surpassed the quality of nationally known, high quality brands. LeatherGoodsConnection maintained contact with me throughout the purchase & belt construction process to ask questions & clarify whenever necessary to ensure the belt met all my expectations. They were very proactive. I HIGHLY recommend their products. The products themselves are spectacular & their customer service is top-notch (no belt pun intended).
She loved the strap, it matched like it was made with it. And, she says your judgment is perfect. Thanks. Barb Davis
My dad just recieved his belt, he's really pleased. I'm very impressed, And I've got to HAVE a ranger belt.
Will Featherstone, Age: 17
Henry: I got the belt. It is very beautifully done. I
have already started wearing it and it works great.
Thank you very much. You should be very proud of your
Henry I received my belts today. Both are beautiful! The craftsmanship is superb! I shall wear them with pride and tell everyone where I had them made. Thank you for the quick service.
This is the best quality belt I have ever owned! The fit is perfect, the attention to detail you put into the workmanship shows the care it was made with. I considered belts that were double your price, but after looking at your website I decided to try yours. It was as if you made this belt for yourself, then sent it to me. I ordered this belt on Sunday, May 1 and received it Wed, May 4, I have never gotten anything that fast when ordering from the internet before. I'll be purchasing my leather products from you from now on. And, it's NOT MADE IN CHINA!
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent work that you did on my
glasses case with a clip. It is working perfectly - far better than
anything I've tried before. My reading glasses (actually now expensive
presciption ones) stay put safely in my shirt pocket until I'm in need
of them - and I'm confident they will for years to come, all the others
cases I've tried wore out very quickly and keep falling out of my pocket
when I bent over.
My new City Bag arrived last week just in time to take
a trip to the French Quarter. It was perfect, with
both shoulder strap and handles, and the soft Black
Ultima leather is my new favorite. This handbag has
plenty of room and organization, without being too
large, and the classic styling will last as long as
the craftsmanship of this bag - FOREVER. Another
winner from Henry!
I apologize that I haven't emailed sooner! I did receive the bag on Thursday. Did not have time to open it until yesterday. It is perfect. I must say the leather is exceptionally soft. Excellent quality which I love. The bags you make for me are going to grow old with me and age wonderfully. They will withstand the test of time. I would not be able to find this bag anywhere. The quality of the workmanship and the softness of the leather is perfect! I know you are very busy and you never rush your work. It is always worth the wait! I appreciate the beautiful work that you did!!
Many thanks for the super belt which arrived today - very speedy!
Why can't I get a decent handmade belt in this country is beyond me - I've
had a couple made but one of them is so frayed at the edges it looks like
it's made of terry cotton!
Anyway - many thanks - it really is just right
S. Yorkshire UK
The wallet is great, thanks a lot! I already recommended you to a couple of my friends, so you may get some more business. I might have a few suggestions for changing the wallet the next time around. I didn't realize that one side of my wallet had leather pockets for credit cards. That might be an improvement, although I really should limit the number of things I carry in my wallet.
Anyway, I'm really happy with the wallet and look forward to using it. I'm sure it will hold up better than the wallets I've bought in the past.
Henry, Just wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying the purse you made. Have had many compliments. Thank you for such a great job. Jeanene Knighton
I received my belt today. It's perfect. The belt is beautiful and you did a fabulous job. Thanks for being helpful through the purchase. It is a wonderful belt and craftsmanship is supurb.
I look forward to ordering from you again.
Thank you kindly,
To everyone out there who is thinking of putting in an order for a custom-made bag with Henry. Go for it! You will love the results. I have just received my commissioned bag and it is fabulous - far better than the original. The deep chocolate leather works very well with the silver hardware, and lighter stitching and the result is a bag that has a slap-bang, up-to-the-minute contemporary feel. The pebble-finish seems to be this season's "must-have", and the bag would truly not look out of place in a top department store. I am extremely pleased with the bag's chunky feel, down to its solid bottom complete with four feet, and sturdy handles. It is built to last.
Henry was great throughout the negotiation process, and answered all my queries patiently. Once he finished the bag he let me know that it was ready for shipment, and it arrived safely packaged, well within the 10 days he had specified.
Put simply, I'd seen enough on Henry's website to convince me that he could do what he said he could do, and in the end, I simply trusted in his workmanship. I was not disappointed.
You've restored my faith in the old American Business Ethic of
offering quality products for fair honest prices. I'm very pleased with the
belt that you made for me as the larger sizes like mine are hard to find
with this kind of quality. I'm tired of having to buy some of the junk that
our Asian "craftsman" produce, It's nice to know that someone like yourself
still cares. I will definetly spread the word about your operation @ E.B.
here in Groton where I work. Please don't change your ways!
I was very pleased with the entire process of ordering. The three belts I ordered are all very attractive, and appear to be exceptionally well made. The belts were produced exactly to my request, and arrived when promised.
Frank C. Jaarsma
I can only say I ordered and received a quality product,for
good price I will use this company again.
William E. Wilkes
just about as good as it can get..................

I ordered a ranger style belt with a buckle set. I was surprized how soon I got the belt - it came in just 5 days, even though I requested a width of 1-5/8 and 7 adjustment holes instead of 5. The price was quite a bit below competitors, and I spent a week shopping around the internet. The belt is beautiful and obviously very high quality. It was everything he said it would be. I carry a gun on my belt in plainclothes every day. His website said that the thick harness leather he uses is perfect for this, and it is true.
Sorry for the late post here but after getting your tapered belt and using as intended ( for a holster) I must say that this belt is second to none. I have a couple custom made holsters that I use and before getting your belt I was looking at belts made by famous holster makers that would cost up to twice the money and not one bit better than yours. I look forward to ordering one of your ranger belts. Keep up the good work.
Regards Mike P.
PS Is that my belt on your page???
NOBODY does it better. Excellent materials and the very best workmanship. What you see is not as good as what you get. Custom, hand-made old world craftsmanship. Henry is
Henry.....I have been out of town for a few days and just got home. The belt was in today's mail. I put the roller buckle in and the belt fits perfectly. I do thank you for your patience. I will use this belt for 'everyday' wear and the other one for 'play.'
You really do good work and your leather I would match is against anyone else's leather.
I have done business with LeatherGoodsConnection.com twice-once to purchase a belt and once to purchase some accessories.
When purchasing the custom made belt, I had numerous questions and eamiled the owner, several times, and he patiently and thoroughly answered them for me in a timely manner.
I would most certainly do business with the LeatherGoodsConnection again.
The company was fair and honest. I know they are craftman
and not marketeers, but it it would be a good move to add a
thank you (maybe stamped on a leather scrap} and also
give some kind of discount on a future purchase. Real silver
would be a nice option if price was reasonable. The product
is of quality.
Hi Henry, I got the belt around noon today. Wow ï¿½ itï¿½s a beauty. It is everything you said it would be on the website. I wear plain clothes with a paddle holster and badge on my belt almost every working day of my life, and I can tell you this 1-5/8 width Harness leather ranger belt is the nicest, best looking, most solid feel belt Iï¿½ve worn. And you accommodated my special requests (1-5/8 width, and seven adjustment holes) and still managed to get the belt to me sooner than promised. You exceeded my expectations ï¿½ thatï¿½s pretty refreshing.
Sgt. Stephen Guenther
The belt arrived today. The dark brown and tan leather combination looks great. I installed the buckle and tip. I could not use my silver loops as the thickness of the belt leather made them to small for the belt tip.I had some dark brown leather loops which I used instead. The fit is perfect.
Thank you very much.
Leather Good Connection was the most easiest site to get around. And the small backpack I ordered is just the most ultimate bag. It fits all I need to carry in it. The leather is so supple...it feels like butta. Anyone looking for a great backpack will not be disappointed in this one.
Hello, I ordered a couple of items on Monday and they arrived today (Wednesday). Thank you for sending nice stuff quickly. I'll be back.
Regards, Greg Anderson
Just a quick e mail saying the belt is beautiful and fits me perfectly.
I will continue to look at your site first when I need products that you offer.
Everything about my purchase from this company was very good. When it was determinied that there was a difference in the shipping charges posted on the site and the actual cost of shipping, I was sent an e-mail stating that the amount charged to me was less than that I had agreed to online. The product was shipped quickly and was exactly as pictured on the web site. I have absolutely no complaints about this purchase.
There are not too many leather work craftmans who take pride in their work but you, are one of the fewï¿½Your work is above and beyond excellent! I ordered your small backpack and asked that the straps be shortened a little because of my height. I have a very petite frame and therefore would not need a strap that was too long. You did a superb job. The backpack is just the right length. Your workmanship is ï¿½perfectï¿½ and it shows how much pride you have in your craft right down to the soft supple leather you use, even right down to the decorative tabs on the zippers. I know that this small backpack will last a very long, long time.
Again, thank you very much.
Aloha from the State of Hawaii!
I recieved a personal letter from the owner/seller upon shipment of the order. Very professional and informative, when I then recieved the package it had his business card with a phone number and contact information if there was any concern. The product was well made, exactly as described on the site, and shipped well.
i searched the internet for a certain type of wallet
i found leather goods conn way into my search and
found the style of construction i was looking for.
after spending a lot of time deciding which model to
purchase i had a few small questions and emailed the
merchant and recieved a email back as fast as the one i sent with clear answers.
i made my purchase online got emailed back for the purchase and i believe the next day my product was shipped
recieved with in two days and the product is nicer in person then the pictures on his site.
all things considered i am still going to the site becuase i am going to purchase from the leathergoods again
i bookmarked the site and i have only the best experience any one could expect very professional in every way
Quick service and excellent quality. Henry is an A-Number 1 vendor to deal with. Will definitely do business with again. A+++++
All-in-all an excellent experience.
Henry- Wanted you to know how pleased I am with my new Osgood Marley
wallet #13502.It is very well made, practical, stylish and attractive. An outstanding item.
Their service level was superior. Extremely good communication about special order product and FAST turnaround. The product arrived on-time and was excellent workmanship and quality. Highly recommend.
: ) John Campos
Dealing with Henry was great. I had a special request and he obliged me with no problems at all. I have already placed second order with him and will continue to do so in the future. A+++++
Quick, friendly service. The quality is outstanding. I am glad to have found them and certainly plan to purchase more from them in the future.
just to let you know a few minutes ago i recieved the wallet
i love it as nice as the pics for sure
every thing fit in it just fine and i found the secret bill compartment too
when i checked it out i said there is no hidden spot then opps there it is
i will be ordering from you again no doubt
thanks you made my day
I received my 2 ranger belts the other day. I want to thank you on the fine quality and craftsmanship of these belts. They are truly everything I expected but wasn't really sure until they arrived. They are so great I want to order a different ranger belt for each pair of pants I own.
Keep up the fine work.
Thank you for the belts,
My belt arrived promptly...I love it. It's exactly
what I wanted. Will be sending another order for a
dress belt soon.
Henry is cool.
I buy full time on line and after talking to Henry about making My custom belt he not only had it made the next day but made the extra custom keepers I requested and had it in the mail by day two and at My door within 3 days of shipping it, Henry is a true craftsmen at his trade...
This is a wonderful store to do business with. I couldnt rate it higher!
Got the order a couple days ago and everything looks great! Thanks a bunch. You'll hear from me again.
I have searched all over the internet for just what I have seen on your site. Can't wait to get it and put it to use. Thank you, Scott.
I received the belt today. It is perfect. Thanks so much. I'm sure I'll be ordering one again from you in the future. I really like it. Thanks again.
I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you the belt you made me was beyond my expectations and is the best one I've ever owned, as I took it out of the box I was stunned at the expert craftsmanship, you Sir are a true skilled expert and artisan.
I grew up in Norwich Connecticut and remember visiting your shop as a kid.
Black ranger belts are hard to find. I searched the web and liked your site
the best. After ordering, I scrolled to the info about your company and
what a surprise.
In college I wore a vest my Dad had bought at your store in the 70s and
I'm sure he's still wearing belts you made (if not still carrying the wallet
he got there). We have photos of my Mom with her purse you made too.
I remember well visiting the shop and admiring the belt buckles and a pen
that converted into a pipe (I must have been about 10).
What a nice coincidence. I'm now a dad myself. I'll tell my parents you're
All the best,
I was amazed at how quickly I received my purchase after ordering. Quality merchandise, fast delivery, no hassels. Thanks Leather Goods Connection, I will buy from you again!
Fast, polite and super product. Worth the price no question. A stand out for promptness.
Jon M. Farr
My friend Jacqueline is THRILLED! She said to tell you that she likes it better than the Coach bag that was stolen...it is all so professional and good. And if anyone comments she will tell them about you. And...she said if you are ever going out of business, let her know and she'll order a couple so that they will last her a lifetime!!!
Thank you so much!!!
(hummm.... sorry jacqueline... still in business... in the USA... unlike Coach)
Quick response coupled with great communication and wonderful customer service. Its hard to find merchants when looking for custom made products, but these folks are a real find and I would gladly contact them again for custom made leather items.
The site is well laid out and I found what I was looking. Email communication was good and item was shipped very quickly. I am very pleased with LeatherGoodsConnection.com
A great experience. The folks were helpful... the product was top quality.
I just wanted to let you know that not only did my order meet my expectations, it exceed them! The quality is excellent. Both handbags are beautiful, and I am having difficultly deciding which to carry first! The ability to customize the length of the strap was a major selling point. This was my first order, but not my last.
LeatherGoodsConnection.com is a wonderful company. Their products are a joy to behold. Nothing more really needs to be said. Fine craftsmanship has a language of its own.
10-4 to that. Thanks for all of your assistance.
I have a friend from out west that has one of your belts and from what I saw it is beautiful. That is how I got your web site address.
One could not ask for a better buying experience. I couldnt rate this store higher. Im dying to buy more custom leather goods from this guy!
Merchant was thoughtful to enhance description of item by email as well as inform me concerning its availability. The item arrived quickly and was well protected in the package. Service could not have been better.The backpack I received exceeded my expectations. It is handsome, well-made, and very convenient to use.
Re: The backpack in the colors of cedar & black
Henry: Thank you so much. The backpack is perfect in every way. I use it almost every day. There was no intention to rhyme but what the heck. I want to add that the speed with which it arrived and your attention were much appreciated.
I love the Ranger Belt. I've wore that type of belt for years and have never been completely satisfied until I received the belt you made. It's awesome. And great service too.
And, the key ring is a hit. I know what I'm buying for Christmas gifts next year.
Thank you for your prompt response! I received the fittings and they are the exact ones that I needed. Henry, when it comes to great customer service... you are #1. I look forward to conducting business with you again in the future.
Got the belt.
Wow. That really makes a difference. Looks really sharp. I love to ride my Harley and listen to Johnny Cash, but for my money, mine is the best color combo. The new length on the tongue is perfect. Let me know if you ever run a special on that Hatch Top, its a little steep for now.
Hello again Henry,
I received my belt, wallets and supplies. Thank you.
I'm very impressed with the work, but I know you have heard that before. I really really like the belt. Thank you again for the fine work and your help during ordering. You will hear from me again I'm sure.
I have received the ranger belt I purchased from you and I couldn't be more pleased. Both the quality of the leather and the workmanship are first class. Thank you for your timely fulfillment of the order.
Henry, I am getting ready to leave, but before I do I have to thank you once again for the wonderful job you do. You did exactly what I was looking for. I know it probably hard to make sense out of what I am asking for at times, but you did it! I appreciate the excellent quality and attention to detail. By that I mean how neatly everything is done and put together for lack of a better explanation. Thanks much, until next time, Kim
Henry, I received my belts today. I can not thank you enough for them, nor can I ever put into words my appreciation for the quality of them and the speed of their delivery. I can say with great confidence that this one investment that has proved to be with every nickel, and more!
Thank you so much for your time and efforts,
Hope you had a great Christmas and managed to relax a little during the holidays!
Just writing to say I've been wearing my (Ranger)belt for over two weeks now. The craftsmanship and working is just as superb as I hoped it would be from the comments on your site. It is absolutely beautiful and I'm sure it will last me a very long time!
Simon Newbury, Rye, England.
I did not find all the information on the web site that I wanted, but the seller was quick to respond to my questions via email. I found the quickness of his responses and the quality and delivery of his products to be super.
I just wanted to say a quick thank-you for the harness belt you made me. It looks and fits great!. My buckle makes it very difficult to find a belt for. You thinned down the ends just the way I wanted it. The craftsmanship you exhibit on your web site is what convinced me to use the Leather Connection. The end results is even better than I expected. Again, thanks for a superb job.
I received the belt yesterday. It looks great w/ my new UtiliKilts belt buckle! Thx, dt
Thank you very much! My husband loved the wallet; it is of excellent quality.
Got the die's yesterday, perfect!! I need more done if you have the time, will send drawings later in the week or first of next week.
I ordered a Johnny Cash Belt as a Christmas present to myself. It was great to see it under the tree. The quality is top notch and the fit is prefect, the measuring guide was right on!. Great product!!
Professional, customized personal service. Nice as can be, quick service on a really nice leather goods piece. Would recommend highly.
Beautiful quality, fast shipping. Love it. Just what I was looking for.
The service was excellent. The belts cost more than I
usually spend, but the quality difference more than made up
for extra cost. I am more than satisfied and would
recommend this leather goods dealer to anyone.
Merchandise quality was even better than it looked online...and it looked good there as well. I also received a shipping notice and the next day the item arrived. I will definitely shop here again and will recommend to friends.
My husband just LOVED his new leather belt that my son gave him for Christmas.
LeatherGoodsConnection is now marked in our favorites for further purchases.
Fantastic Product, Service and Delivery A+++++
Thank You Henry
James Runge From Minnesota...
What a terrific experience! Not sure of the measurement, as I had measured the wrong part of the giftees belt, I used the phone number to call and the owner took his time helping me through the process to insure my Dads belt would fit.Before I knew it, the belt arrived for my inspection and it is beautiful! I had no idea a custom harness leather belt could be a thing of beauty! We cannot wait to give it to my Dad Christmas Day! I think my husband will get one next! Great service and beautiful leather.
Jane, Palm City, FL
I found Henry to be very helpful and accomodating.
I received what was promised. I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend this merchant to anyone interested in leather goods.
Great shopping experience from start to finish!
James La Fleur
The belt arrived in a very timely fashion. It is beautiful.
I am writing this note from Italy, east of Bologna.
With a smile,
Thank you very much -- I received it, it's lovely. I will tell everyone about your site. Have a great holiday!
I received the wallet today. The quality and workmanship are even better than they look in the picture on your Web site. Thank you for your excellent and personal service and for your fine work. I know it will be my husbandï¿½s favorite Christmas present.
I did receive the black, Buffalo Calf Leather Wallet, and like it very much. I appreciate your talented workmanship, and the texture and the touch of this leather is very nice!
I suspect it will age beautifully, and believe this wallet will suit the needs of the man I am giving it to as a Christmas gift.
Again, thank you very much Henry; it's been a pleasure doing business with you.
The belt arrived exactly as ordered and was made and shipped within two days of the order.
Price of Biker Wallet was reasonable & quality seems to be very nice! Seller very accomodating.Would buy from again...
Beautiful product & excellent service. Will definitely purchase again
Just received my belt, I am extremely pleased. The craftsmanship is excellent. I am already thinking of ideas for my next one.
Body:Having been in Quality Control for the first half of my, now 50 years of age, I very much appreciate this merchants attention to detail. Now, I do custom installation of HVAC equipment. I install equipment with many, many details that effect the success of the performance and the customers wishes translated to their satisfaction is a must. Its satisfying to know that this merchant cares so much about my wishes and knows his product and how to get the customers wishes translated to their actuality. Kudos for a job very well done!
Got it and like it--nice job, it's exactly what I was hoping for. I'll probably order a black one in a few weeks.
I got the belts yesterday and they are perfect! Perfect color, perfect style and perfect size. I think I spent the past year looking for a belt like this. You solved the search very quickly! I'm most pleased.
The Belt is here!!
WOW looks great Excellent work
Henry has a great product at a fair price,and the service is FAST!We will be dealing with him in the future.
Honest man to do business with.
Dear Henry Hibbard,
I recieved my belt Wednesday, which was quite pleasing as I wasn't expecting it so soon. I've given the belt a couple days of wear and am very happy with it.
I've been looking for this style of belt locally (in the North Florida area) for the past few years without success--I wanted one to replace the belt my brother had given me about 14 years ago (which has seen much better days, considering it's probably older than me). Doing a quick look online, I found only one other place that sold double ring belts. But the choice between Big Retail and handmade was simple.
I expect I'll be order a couple more belts from you after the first of the year..
Just wanted to let you know I received my latest belt. Both belts you have made for me are A+ !
Thanks and have a Happy Holiday.Scotty
got the belt today--another great job. thats 3 for 3
received the belt today. Excellent.
Your attention to detail is without peer,
and your work is greatly appreciated.
Weï¿½ll deal again, and Iï¿½ll
definitely recommend you to
some other folks.
I purchased the black ranger style belt and am thoroughly pleased with it. Top quality materials and excellent craftsmanship throughout. I spent more money than I really wanted to for a belt, but I got _exactly_ what I wanted with no compromises. You cant buy a belt like this off the shelf at any store.
Ordering was easy and painless. Good communication. Quick delivery. Im going to save my pennies and order a brown one with wheat stitching next time.
A very nice product from a quality seller. Thanks!
There was no delay in shipping. I ordered my belt on Sunday was e-mailed on Monday. Package arrived on Wensday. The quality of
his workmanship is outstanding. It is nice to have a well made belt. Because of my chosen profession I am rough on clothes and accessories.
My wonderful backpack/sling you made for me arrived today. WOW!!! I am impressed beyond belief. You made the copy even better than the original I sent. I love it and will be using it from now on. Thank you so much for agreeing to copy my favorite bag. You are indeed a talented man.
I am a repeat customer of this merchant and have never been disappointed in either his products or service. My most recent purchase, an Equestrian handbag, is absolutely beautiful, as is everything he has made for me. I gladly recommend LeatherGoodsConnection to anyone looking for the best in quality, handmade leather goods.
I received an excellent response to questions put to this supplier, and the order was acknowledge immediately. The fact that my account was not charged until the product was made was appreciated by me, and because the supplier had had a problem with the postage I had chosen he informed me. He advised me of the time it would take for me to receive my goods and this was accurate.
My only complaint was the amount of import tax I was required to pay, and the amount of handling charge the United Kingdom postal service charged me.
I consider the purchase of my goods from this supplier was easy and I received excellent service.
Good products at a reasonable price. Delivery was exceptionally fast. Spoke to merchant and he was very helpful.
I got exactly what I wanted, even down to the finest, last minute detail! Thanks for a quality product and super fast shipping! My ever hard to shop for Dad was knocked off his socks at how great this product was !!!!!! -
I sent in my order (I thought) for a belt, no buckle, for my husband for Christmas. Within a very short time, I got a confirmation from Henry, and we quickly discovered that I had not ordered what I really wanted. Henry and I emailed back and forth all day, with him making suggestions as to how I could get the information he needed to make the belt the right size, but without spoiling the surprise. The morning after I orginally transmitted my order I emailed the correct information to Henry. Later that afternoon, I got an email from Henry telling me that my belt had been shipped by Priority Mail. It arrived two days later, and it was EXACTLY what I wanted. I would recommend this merchant to anyone.
My new Equestrian handbag is absolutely stunning and
everything I hoped it would be. The quality and
workmanship, as with all your work, is beyond compare.
Although this bag closely resembles Coach styling,
that's where the similarity ends. Your version of
this classic favorite is perfectly made with
painstaking attention to detail, and I will be proud
to carry it for years. Thanks AGAIN for a superb job.
I recently purchsed a leather cigarette case. I had special demensions that I wanted it to be. I sent an email to see if it could be made to my specifications. My response to the email was responded to the same day which is outstanding.
Once I placed my order I received a confirmation of my order. I received my case in just a few days.
I would definately recommend them to a friend.
Never in my wildest imagination, did i think that a custom made belt ordered on Oct. 24 would be holding my pants up on Oct. 27! The communication after order was placed was excellent, as was the quality of the belt and buckle, and speedy delivery of the belt! Your directions for measurement were very easy and clear to use. I would recommend this site and your products to anyone!!!! I can say, you have made one very satisfied customer here! Everything you promised, you delivered on. It's nice to know, there are still places on this planet where customer service counts!
I received my belt promptly in yesterdayï¿½s mail. It is simply perfect in every way. You have greatly exceeded all my expectations and I frankly doubt if I will ever buy another belt from a brick and mortar store again. Thanks for great customer service and superb quality product. Iï¿½ll be sending you more business in the near future.
I received the backpack yesterday afternoon. I love it! It is very comfortable, attractive, and I am enjoying the challenge of filling it. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
I have received my belt today and I LOVE IT!!!! The craftsmanship is unbelievable, it is truly beautiful work. I know I will order again.
loving my new belt - he made it exactly like i wanted
Outstanding quality and service. Product was beautifully made exactly to my specifications and shipped quickly. You could not ask for better. Only possible criticism is the lack of a cheaper delivery option. All products are shipped priority at significant cost, but when a hand made product exhibiting such beautiful craftmanship arrives in 5 days, all is forgiven. EXCELLENT!
This is the only website I could find with all the information needed to make an informed purchase.
The order, shipping and product were of the highest quality.
Please do not worry about ordering from this vender.
I received the wallet Saturday! Thanks again,for the prompt shipment and courteous correspondence.
I am very impressed with the quality of the leather and it is actually softer than I expected. My wife commented, "I wish they made a handbag as nice as that." Now I know I will be making other purchases from you soon.
Duane R. Jones
Got the belt today. fit is perfect (4th hole). workmanship and materials are the finest i have seen. couldn't be happier.
thank you, les novikoff
Well, the glasses case is beautiful. I'm going to be very happy with it. It hadn't occurred to me that a clip would allow me to wear it on my belt.
Thanks; I'm delighted. It's better than what I'd imagined.
I just want to say how awesome your belt was! I will send so much business your way! You have been great! I think I am going to order a bag next! I love it!
I LOVE IT! Its so great to have just what I wanted, in the color I wanted, with so many organized pockets, AND made in the good old USA. Its the best backpack I've ever seen. You did a fabulous job and your price is competitive for similar quality items. Keep my design on file, my mom is thinking about getting the same thing!
I am very Happy with the belt I ordered from you, It is much better than I thought it would be, and the lettering in the back was very well done, I have had several complaments on how good the belt looks, Thanks for doing such a great job,will order another one soon.
I was very satisified with Leather Goods Connection.Order was taken easily. I was notified promptly about the status of my order.I received the merchandise in a few days.The quality and craftmanship was great.This hand made wallet is by far the nicest and most rugged one I ever had. Dont hesitate to place your order...you won't be disappointed.
I received the repaired bag, I believe it was on Friday. What a wonderful job you've done with the handle. I'm so pleased with your work. You are a credit to the trade! Thanks again for all your help and prompt attention. Take care. I will certainly refer others to you and your company. I look forward to a continued relationship with you. Thanks again.
I received my custom men's handbag and the wallet last week, and wanted to say that I am very pleased, and thank you. I appreciate your very nice work to fulfill my specifications, and furthermore the fact that you obviously put a lot of care into making this a bag that will be useful and pleasurable for a long time. I think it's neat to have something that I had a say in designing, and was constructed with pride and personal attention by someone who knows his stuff. Best wishes -
This is a wonderful site operated by a rare and valuable craftsman, who obviously takes a great deal of pride in his products, works very closely with the customer to create satisfaction, and does not attach any of the sales-fluff nonsense that most companies do. To say Im pleased with the items he made for me is an understatement.
Another great leather accessory from Henry - a zippered makeup pouch for my purse. It's exactly what I wanted - simple and classy and just exactly the right size. The only thing better than Henry's bags are filling them with matching accessories.
Excellent! The personal attention to shipping service I needed for my gifts was immediately handled very personally and effectively. The quality craftsmanship was obvious on receipt. I was proud to offer these products as gifts, and will be back to buy for myself as well.
Product better than advertised, at a fair price and unquestionable quality. Delivery time was actually shorter than promised. What more could you ask for.
I will definitely use this merchant again and tell my friends about him too.
the leather wallet i ordered and received is exactly what i wanted and saw in the picture . I am very happy with it and it is very well made.
Henry makes great belts and they fit well and look great. i will be wearing mine for years to come.
Hi Henry - thanks so much for the beautiful job you
did on my custom cases. They fit my pocket pc and
keyboard beautifully and are exactly what I was
wanting. As always, your workmanship far excels
anything that could be purchased elsewhere. I sent
you a check which I hope more than covers the cost of
the extra case, and appreciate your patience with my
pickiness. Hey, that's why I only buy my leathergoods
A great Craftsman doing a great job and like me, a weird sense of humour. Service like this is seldom found in this modern day and age. Probably explains why Henry is still working at 185 years of age!
Thanks once again, P.J.F.
Great service, fast delivery (2 days) even with a custom order. I will be ordering all my belts from LeatherGoodsConnection.com from now on.
The belts arrived today, and I am MOST pleased. My wife, skeptical as usual of my fashion judgments (she's a Queer Eye fan, I'm the kind of guy who thinks lotion is for girls), was also very impressed. I'll certainly be ordering again. Thank you very much!
Very knowledgable and easy to deal with. Very high quality goods!!
In the North of England when someone or something is Superlative it is called a real BELTER (Probably a term for making a great hit, or belt, at cricket) You Henry are a real Belter. I have just received my belt. Wow ! Broads will faint in the street as I mosey on by. Now a days when one orders or buys something, there always seems to be an area of ..disappointment or the work leaves something to be desired. Well I aint and it dont.Thank you for your Art Henry.
Bag arrived today. Beautiful work! Thank you much - will be in touch, Tom

I think Leather Connection is wonderful.When you e-mail them with a question about their product its answered very quickly.The quality is very good.Im 100% satisfied with the wallet I bought.I bought another one and didnt care for it-sent it back and within a couple days I got a response that Henry received it and had issued my credit.Very good to do business with.I will use them for sure again.
Just wanted to say I have bought many wallets and this is the first time I ordered from leather goods connection.I was very impressed with the wallet I ordered.I just love it, the quality is excellent and plenty of space.Very pleased also that I e-mail for info and a response is sent back to me in no time-very ,very pleased.You usually don't find quality like this,especially ordering over the net you never know what you are getting.100%satisfied.
First time buyer and a small order. Responded to order immediately and shipped promptly. Had order in just a few days with no problem. Will use again, gladly.
Hi Henry. I got it today and love it. Exactly what I wanted. I may be ordering one for my brother but I need to talk with him first. Thank you very much.
Received my new "Henry" yesterday and was delighted, as I always am, with the quality and functionality of my new Small Backpack. It has a trendy style, with lots of great extras added like plenty of pockets and a key clip. I especially love the fabric sail cloth Henry uses to line his bags - it has become my choice over the pigskin because it looks great all the time and is as tough as nails. Also, the replacement wallet I ordered for my husband (the dog ate his!) was perfect and he was delighted with it. I have to admit I used the excuse of ordering him a wallet to add to my own collectionï¿½ ;-) I couldn't be happier with all the items I've ordered from LeatherGoodsConnection and will be a customer for life.
I placed an order on your website. I was very impressed when I e-mailed for a question about the product I wanted to purchase,it was answered very quickly. I like that. I plan on purchasing more in the future and will spread the word. Have a great day.
I love the bag. I have already received compliments on it. Thank you for
all your hard work and patience, especially for responding so promptly to
all of my emails. Did you notice....patience is not one of my

Very easy to work with. Made special effort to get me what I wanted. Shipped within timeframe specified. Very good workmanship, very good material. Would buy from this merchant again and will defininately encourage others to buy from him.
I just got the wallet yesterday (fast!) and it's really, really nice. I can't wait to give it to my boyfriend for his birthday next month. I'm very impressed with the wallet and your prompt service.
I have been looking for this belt and wallet for three years and after receiving I was completley surprised to see they are what I have been looking for ever since I bought my last ones from a peddler in Kentucky at a Town Picknick. I might add dealing with this indvidual was beyond my expectations, he was very knowlegeable.
Henry, thank you very much for your advice. I took the plunge (pun intended) and soaked the belt in water for 2 minutes. I just rubbed the surface lightly with my fingers and the salt stains (and residual water stains) have all disappeared. The belt did shrink slightly but I am sure that once it is around my ample girth it will stretch back out :-) As expected the belt is a bit stiffer but that should go away with use as well. I declined to use distilled water, but that is still an option if the stiffness is maintained.
I tried some leather 'waterproofing' rub (that I had purchased years ago for boots - it is derived from Emu [the large bird] oil) on a small section of the non-visible side of the belt and it severely darkens it. I will just try the belt with its current darkness instead of worrying about a sealer of any type. I don't make a habit of getting the belt wet.
Thank you so much for everything.
I enjoy doing business with you.
I LOOOOVE this back pack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It`s the perfect size for me and so beautifully made, thanks!
Great quality product! Have been trying to find a belt that fits and am very happy with the belt. This belt will be around for a long time from the combination of fine leather and quality workmanship. Ill be making another order in a short time.
I'm glad I discovered LeatherGoodsConnection.com. I'd be happy to order again in the future.
What a great belt!!! Exactly what I wanted. Really beautiful. Thank you.
Dear Mr Hibbard,
I received my leather backpack yesterday and was very pleased with the excellent quality and craftmanship. You have another satisfied customer. Keep up the good work!
The belts are great... I would recommend this store to everyone who wanted fine quality items....

Thanks so much for all of your help and for getting it into the mail
so quickly! Your customer service has thus far been fantastic, and
I've really appreciated it. I am really looking forward to receiving
Thanks Henry, received my wallet today and the
workmanship is excellent...
I received the belt today. Thank you. It is exactly what I wanted. I am very impressed. I have owned belts from Orvis, Galco, and Filson and yours beats them all- in quality, craftsmanship and style. I'm sure this belt will last a long, long time.
Thanks for such an excellent product. I will be contacting you soon for some other items.
All the best,
My beautiful bag arrived safe and sound and to say I am impressed is a total understatement. The quality far surpasses that of the original one and will no doubt last longer than I will! You are a genius .. many many thanks for all your hard work and skill. Rather than have another bag made of a different colour I am looking to maybe set you a fresh challenge, if that is ok? Like before I will send the old bag to you so you can cast your expert eye over it (if that suits) but it will not be for a couple of weeks. A huge THANK YOU once again!
With very best wishes,
South Yorkshire UK
IT IS AWESOME!!!
You have me hooked.
I'll email another order later this week, along the lines of what I had asked about earlier, which is a one inch inside billet, 2inch outside, this time in black, but with only the provision for a 4 piece buckle, I'll provide it. I have to swap the 3/4 inch set for a 1 inch set. Then, I'll send the set to you for incorporation into a belt. That way, we'll know it works.
Subject: My two most recent belts
Even my wife (who can be a very severe critic) has expressed great
admiration for these two creations of yours. Also, several of my locker
room buddies have admired them. Haven't gotten you any added
sales as yet, but we are trying.
My ranger belt arrived last week and it is absolutely beautiful - far
and away the nicest belt I've ever owned. Just curious, but why do you omit
the keeper that keeps the two ends together?
Thanks again for an exceptionally high quality product.
The belt is so awesome. I will be buying a few more from and other belts of
width for regular wear. I also told my fellow umpires of your great work,
and they are going to check you out.

Based on the quality and fit of my two new belts just received...I will
predict that you have a great future in the leather goods field!!
Many thanks and best regards.
Could it beï¿½ another "favorite" Henry Handbag? Got my new Crescent style last week and it's exactly what I was wanting. Great size that I won't be compelled to overload, and looks really classy with the starburst stitching. The nicest feature is the flat bottom that helps prevent it from tipping over when I set it down. I've always been a leather snob (think it started back in the '70's with my faithful pair of Frye boots)ï¿½ and I ordered my first couple bags with the pigskin lining which is really beautiful and luxurious. Now I'm absolutely hooked on the super-duper sailcloth material. It's tough as nails and stays looking perfect. Okay, so far I've got the Courier, City Bag, Maxi Tote, Anytime Backpack, Weekender, Career Briefcase, Cosmetics Pouch, and all kinds of little custom bags for Palm Pilots and such. And now my new Crescentï¿½ As long as Henry is making these beautiful items, I'll be a customer.
I received the belts today and I am very very pleased with the workmanship
and overall appearance. In particular the 7 braid. How did you do that?
Your measuring criteria also worked.
(check out secrets revealed for that answer. Also check out the very last comment on this page, this belt is... )

This merchant went out of his way to assist me in ordering the custom made belt I wanted. I had several questions, which I emailed to him over the time period of a couple of weeks, prior to making my purchase. He was very prompt and detailed in answering them- often within a half hour. This merchant displayed a lot of patience.
The quality of the belt that I ordered was very good. I ordered the belt with the spacing of the holes in a special pattern to accomodate my changing weight, and he did an excellent and accurate job. The quality of the leather, buckles, etc. was excellent.
I would definatly do business with this merchant again.
Thank you very much Henry. It is really nice to find someone like you to do
business with. You are a rare find.
I got the saddles yesterday p.m. They're wonderful! Thank you so much, I'm thrilled. The leather is beautiful and they are a perfect fit. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family.
all the best,

I cant say enough how pleased I am with the handbag (its amazing--as close to being the PERFECT bag as any woman is willing to admit, without giving up the right to continue shopping for that ever-elusive goal), but also with the customer service. Every step was easy, and my question email was answered promptly. It was shipped within the time promised, and arrived in 2 days. A great web shopping experience, Im completely impressed
Received my "Johnny Cash" belt today.
Excellent workmanship, just like the first.
Thanks so much, Henry.....I can't wait to see and use the bag that I've been drooling over on the website for the past couple of months (and looking for that style for the past several years).
Geez.. that's scary...Hope I don't let you down.
HOLY MOLY.....there is NO way I'm disappointed! The bag came last night (wonderfully fast shipping, by the way), and wow, it's fantastic! Far better than I'd hoped for, and FAR better than the one I'd seen years ago and had been looking for ever since.
Since I'm pretty sure it would break one of the Laws of Womankind to say it's the Perfect Purse (after all, who would want to jeopardize further shopping excursions by admitting that???), it is gorgeous, the perfect size and color, and amazingly soft leather. Even the strap is I think the nicest looking one I've ever seen!
I'm keeping the webpage in my Favorites, for sure ;-)

I received the handbag that you made for me today. I just wanted to say thank you. I was very apprehensive about ordering a handbag this way. I had been looking on the net for over 6 months. I finally decided to order through your site. The handbag was far more than I ever expected! The workmanship and quality show and they are exceptional.
You understood the changes that I asked for and they are great.
The other unexpected surprise I had, was my Coach wallet and cosmetic bag match ( the color) perfectly.
This handbag is perfect!
Again thank you and I wish you well with your business.
Got my checkbook cover in the mail on Saturday, just what I was wanting.
Hi Henry, just received the handbag late yesterday and it is fabulous, thank you so much. You did an excellent job, Sheila
Got the belt the other day, great colour, a really comfortable belt to wear too. Thanks for the extra loop too.
I received my leather jacket in the mail today! You have done a superb job, and it is just as I wanted it to look and feel. I want to thank you again for the work you have done, at what I consider a bargain price. Again, you will have my future business. All the best, Brett Schexnider
Hi Henry, I received the goods yesterday and am very happy with the results. I couldn't wait to give the wallet to my husband. It is so beautifully handcrafted. And I know my friend will love the bag. I will probably be ordering another one soon. Thank You very much for your hard work and willingness to meet my DEMANDS!

After exchanging several emails with the craftsman at LeatherGoodsConnection.com we came to agreement on the size, color, hardware, and price of a custom handbag that I wanted based on a picture of a similar bag I saw in a magazine. I got this custom bag for over $500 less than the one pictured...its roomy, easy to carry, everthing I wanted...including a great shade of chocolate brown. Mr. Hibbard certainly knows how to put it all together.
Thanks for making the strap longer than requested too! You were right.
Got the belts last week, they are exactly what I am looking for. I look forward to doing more business with you. Great products.
I generally wear western belts with tips and keepers but wanted a black belt with plain brass buckle to wear with Leviï¿½s and to match my black bike leathers and boots. Also, all the silver buckle bits on a traditional set scratch paint and I wanted to minimize that possibility as well ï¿½ both riding and working on the bike.
The belt you made looks fine and should work perfectly (assuming I measured correctly). Perhaps this can be a new market for you? Even though there is a ï¿½biker lookï¿½ just about everything, I donï¿½t think there is a ï¿½biker beltï¿½ ï¿½ at least not for pants. Maybe we just created a future classic.
I just received the belt today and it is perfect. I am so glad I found
your site, this belt is exactly what I was looking for. Can you send me
another one just like it? Same size, same cc#, same color. I am so happy
with this one I would like another.

Henry, I received the handbag the other day and I did not have time to thank you. As usual your work is impressive. The leather is soft enought to satifsfy me being the fanatic that I am! I just wanted to thank you for the excellent quality you put into your work. Kim
Thanks so much for the custom work! The piece (a leather cover for a custom guitar amplifier) is absolutely gorgeous, fits perfectly, and arrived promptly. The leather is just as beautiful as you described, and I am thrilled! I had an idea that you helped me refine, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I can't recommend your work highly enough! Thanks again, Henry!
I'm blown away- It's absolutely fabulous and fits perfectly. Thanks so much! I sent a comment of praise to your website.
I can't believe that leather! It is my favorite leather color of all time, and the weight is perfect for what I wanted. I hope you have some more of it! I'm trying to think of other things you could make me!
Thanks again- you have totally nailed it! I love it!
Wow you are fast, its only Tuesday and you only just started it yesterday, I will keep your website for future orders, my husband rides and buys alot of leather products. Thanks again, Kim
I recieved my belt the other day. I was surprised at how quickly it
arrived. The quality is excellent. Nice leather and color. It's hard
to find a good belt at a good price. I will be sure to buy my next
belt from you. Thank You!
I just received the custom maxi tote and the custom city bag with the flap closure. I could not be more pleased with your excellent craftsmanship! These bags are exactly what I was looking for that I could not find anywhere else. It really makes me feel good to say that I own custom crafted goods. Furthermore, It makes my husband feel really good that he will no longer be dragged out of the house day after day and hour upon hour pocketbook shopping when we both know that I won't find something that I will be happy with. I am completely happy with my purchases. I look forward to doing business with you again.
I really love your work as you can tell since I ordered 3 belts in one week! If you order a belt with a buckle, do you also get a keeper loop? If not, no worry, they look just great without the loop too. My Lt. Brown belt arrived Sat. 2-21-04 nd looks just great but did'nt have a keeper loop. Keep up the great work; thinking about a Ranger Belt around Christmas time.
(Reply: Center bar buckles do not use a keeper)
This is just a breif note to say thanks for the great job you did on Bernie's handbag. She loves it.
I think there is a real markeing opportunity here. You should think about the gift voucher idea I was looking for originally and also follow up sales campaigns e.g. a purse to match the handbag, discount for friends campaign etc.
Anyway. Thanks once again and best of luck.
The covers arrived today. They made it just in time for my next trip, and they're wonderful. The leather is everything I thought it would be. The extra snaps on the closure is a great touch. I am completely and thoroughly satisfied. You ever need a testament, just give a holler.
Thanks so much. It's been a pleasure doing business with you.
Thank you Henry. I received the wallet and I would like to tell you how pleased I am with it. I like the leather, the workmanship, nice metal fasteners, and no dumb logo...
Thanks again for a fine product and excellent service,
HI HENRY, THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP, I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH YOUR QUICK RESPONCES. I WILL KEEP YOUR WEB SITE AND COME BACK TO IT AND BROWSE WITH MY WIFE. CAN ALWAYS USE SOMETHING OUT OF LEATHER. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP. REGARDS DAVE
Received the merchandise today. It looks even better than I had imagined and what lovely leather. I actually like your design better as the strap will stay at whatever adjustment you make and not slip. Thank you so much. I'm happy to have your business card as well. Judy
Thank you so much for the beautiful work on the briefcase strap. It's exactly what we needed and the quality is even better than expected.
I'll keep you bookmarked for future use and referrals!
Awhile back you made me a handbag using a copy of one I gave you. It was a hobo style. I saw a picture of it on your website. It has a shorter wide strap and a zippered top. Well, I am most happy with it. You do the most beautiful work. You also thru in a keychain that I love. I have not lost my keys yet because of the long leather braid, I can find it anywhere. Well, the reason for my email is that I would love another custom bag same style just a bit wider so I can fit more stuff in it. I was thinking of a different color also. Let me know if you know the style I am refering to and if you want me to send you measurements. I am also looking for a soft to the touch leather. Let me know what you recommend.
Thank You, Kim Jacobik ( from Preston near Norwich which I believe is your old neck of the woods!)
Thank you so much. The belts are perfect. I have been looking for months for belts like these.
Thanks, Henry, for the quick and personal service. Marian
I would like to thank you for the quality work you have provided. I received the two belts today and am very pleased with your workmanship, and the quality of the leather. I have found that during my many purchases online that the photos do not always show what is received by the customer. Thankfully your photos are a good indication of what you provide. Thank you once again for conducting quality work in a timely manner, you have done a wonderful job.
George is delighted with the belt you created for him. I'm trying to get him to make up his mind what else he wants. I'd like to get him a black one but maybe he'll want a slightly different width.
We'll let you know soon.
Again, M A N Y T H A N K S !!!
Belt arrived here today and I'm "chuffed to bits" with it. I might get
you to make me another soon.
My bag arrived in the post and was waiting for me when I got home from work this evening - it is absolutely lovely, and just perfect for what I need. I am really looking forward to a ceremonial transfer of all my bits & pieces from my existing (hopeless) handbag to my new one - this is a procedure which cannot be rushed!
Many thanks to you for your care and patience with my many requests - the end-result is just great.
With best regards and many thanks again

Again, I would like to thank you for your time in answering my somewhat inane questions and being so quick about it.
The handbag arrived this afternoon. It is beautiful.
Thank you so much...it's exactly what I was looking
for. Can't wait to show it off..
I received my custom handbag weeks ago, and am only just writing to tell you how much I love it. You did everything exactly the way I wanted it. It makes me happy every time I use it, which is many times a day. Thank you so much.
I just wanted to let you know I received the belt today. Great job!. I'm sure I'll enjoy it for many years.
BTW, do you have any purses that can hold a small pistol. My wife has her "carry" license and has
been looking for a purse that has a glove type pocket that allows her to quickly reach the pistol if
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful backpack. This is the nicest backpack I have ever seen. I am so impressed that I am seriously considering ordering another for a friend. Once again, thank you.

I received your belt today in the mail. It is awesome!!!! Thank you so much. I am telling you that you should list the item on the web. It is exactly as I imagined but better. The buckle is better than I thought it would be. I will be sure to give you all my requests for leather products.
By the way. Santa,(me) was a success for 20 neighborhood kids and 3 families nearby. The kids loved Santa coming to their house.
Thank you again for a job well done!!!
If you need any references, please let me know.

I received the belt today. What can I say apart from FANTASTIC! A perfect
fit and made to a quality you just don't see that often these days. Thanks,
it is a wonderful thing to own, I will enjoy wearing it.
The purse arrived today. It is very roomy and I will get good use from it. Thank you for a quality product. You have a satisfied customer.
Package received - thank you. The item is also just exactly what my
wife was looking for!
Best wishes for 2004!
This is William Chen. We received the bags, and I must say you have an excellent skill. My wife really enjoys them. Thanks again for your work. By the way, can you make a small coin bag with a clasp opening. I don't see those anymore.

I simply had to take the time to review the LeatherGoodsConnection because the wallet I got as a gift was gorgeous leather with lovely craftsmanship. The overall effect was a high quality hand crafted unique item that you just cant find at stores or at most websites. And the price was Absolutely affordable! Ill return there again and again. Thanks for making something so special for me to give to some who is special to me.
Sincerely, Holly W.
I RECEIVED YOUR PRODUCTS YESTERDAY AND I JUST LOVE THE GREAT QUALITY AND SPECIAL CARE YOU PUT INTO YOUR WORK. THANK YOU!!!
I received the wallet yesterday. I'm very happy with the final product. You are definitely a fine leather craftsman. Everything's right where I wanted it. The tougher liner is evident. My wife is already thinking about what she might want in a custom handbag. I told her she needs custom pockets for her gun, handcuffs and badge. Talk to you next year about the handbag. Thanks again, and have a great holiday.
I just received my customized Maxi Tote and have to say that it is my new favorite "Henry". The Black Dove leather is beautiful and the features of this bag are just perfect for my needs. The pockets you added to the outside are great - what a convenient way to keep my cell phone handy. As always, your craftsmanship is beyond compare. Merry Christmas to me!

I received the checkbook cover you made (zippered to hold regular checks) and I have to tell you, that is the most beautiful thing Iï¿½ve seen in a long time. You do quality work; itï¿½s truly a work of art. I have ordered a wallet for my husband and am sure it will be the same quality. Iï¿½m very glad I found you. My husband and I own a mold shop and are trying to hold on to it but it hasnï¿½t been easy. No one understands anything about manufacturing in this country but China understands that itï¿½s the backbone of any economy. I am so happy to find something made in this country. Iï¿½m assuming you make this wallet. I look forward to receiving the wallet and will tell everyone I know about your quality items. Thanks again.
I received the belt today, and the buckle fits just
fine. I am very satisfied. Thank you.
I received the wallet yesterday, it looks very good, I will put it to use right away. I will keep you in mind for future leather needs as well.....
Received the straps. They are great you did a real nice job. Thanks again.

both the quality of the construction and the 'look.' The color is just what

The eyeglass case arrived today in good order. It appears to be just what the doctor ordered.
I can't imagine that there isn't a market for this type of case to be worn on the belt. If memory serves, it was a common item maybe 20 to 25 years ago, then disappeared. You might want to test the acceptance of this style. I'll volunteer to be a satisfied user.
Thanks & good luck.

Title:Leather Goods, A Great Idea
With an explicit description of what I wanted, LeatherGoods was able to design a custom bag for me. The guy, Henry, was extremely responsive. I was actually shocked to have gotten an e-mail as timely as I did. He even gave me a sketch of what he was going to do. Overall, I was very impressed.
Henry the bag looks great!
The camouflage really gives it a masculine edge
Thanks a million.
Recieved buckles today. They are perfect, exactly what I wanted. Thank
you so much, also thanks for the extra.
Thanks again, Gary
I received both my bags today and I must tell you they are truly much more beautiful than in the pictures on your web site. I must confess that I bought one as a gift for my mother, but after receiving it today I don't think I could part with either one. I am the owner of three Coach and two Dooney & Bourke bags, but these I can tell already will be my favorites. Thank you for the express service and the beautiful workmanship. You will get my next order before Christmas.
Thanks so very much. The strap came today and was a perfect match for my daughters pocketbook. She said the quality work was great, but then I could have told her that. Barb
Just a quick note to let you know I Love My New Bag!!!
It's the perfect size I needed with all the 'little' things that make the difference! That side pocket not only holds my pens and hair barretts, but my cell phone too! (that has been impossible to find in any other bag around, because I have a larger model i1000+ Nextel phone...)
I'm showing it off to all the girls at school (& church) who think they need to purchase "Coach" and other over-priced designer bags to have quality. Never again for this girl!
I am extremely hard on handbags and need 'tough leather' to hold up and I can already see it's going to be my 'best friend' for a very long time to come! Your website is being shared with all my friends, so hopefully that will send you some more orders:)
Thanks again for the excellent work you did for me! I couldn't have asked for more!
Please let me know if/when you get more colors in. I'd sure like this same bag in red, etc...

The leather zipper binder you made for me is beautiful and exactly what I had in mind. Buffalo Calf was definitely a great choice of leather for this item - it looks and feels very rich and will give me many years of service. Thanks once again!
Received the 2 belts this weekend, both look great.
I am already hearing compliments. Thanks
Wow, are you FAST! Belt arrived today. Many thanks, Henry! It's beautiful!
Thank you for your careful concern. My buckle adds 2-3 inches. I have
several different buckles and change from time to time. I appreciate the
care you take to ensure a proper fit. I shopped on ebay and a number of
websites and your belts are the best bargain of the lot!
My shopping experience was wonderful with handmadeleather goods. So much so that I will be contacting Henry with my own belt order in the near future. I love my husband's belt. It's beautifully crafted and it looks wonderful with the buckle!
Great product, price and delivery! I really like the wallet!
My leather day planner binder arrived today and it's just perfect - love the leather (matches
my briefcase!) and all the great pockets. Thanks again, Henry!
Just wanted to let you know that I received my leather order, and I am very pleased with it. Very nice leather,
with that wonderful leather smell.
It seems to be very well-made, with sturdy zippers. I look forward to years of service from it.
The belt arrived today. I'm very happy with it and I wanted to thank
you for your help. Since I'm trying to lose some weight, with luck I
might need a slightly smaller size in a few months and, if so, I'll
probably be a repeat customer.
My bag came today and it's beautiful ! Thank you so much ! I love it. I'll recommend you to anyone looking for a
bag. They are just perfect.
Just received my order & all the items are wonderful!
-The nylon zipper does appear to have been the better choice.
-I must also add that I'd just about given up hope on finding a leather belt of this quality. I have a belt from 20 years ago that I can
now retire because you've crafted it's worthy replacement!
Thank you so much!
The quality of workmanship that is found in the most expensive handbags can be found at
LeatherGoodsConnection ... at a fraction of the cost! You many contact me to hear about several
excellent experiences I've had with the company,
Your package arrived today and I was again completely
delighted with my order. The career briefcase is just
beautiful and the additional shoulder strap will sure
come in handy. I loved the matching clutch purse - it
was exactly what I had in mind. What a perfect set
this will be for work - can't wait to show it off!
The bag arrived yesterday and it is perfect! I love the leather you used. It looks
just like Andrew's old bag only better of course. He is going to be so pleased. Thank you
You did a fabulous job. The bag is perfect, exactly what I wanted. Your work is very neat in detail. I am so happy I found you.
The leather is extremely soft and I love the lining it looks very durable. Thanks again and I am sure I will keep in touch. I love the fact
that I can have something made customized. You do excellent work!!! Oh and the key chain is beautiful , you truly are an artisan. I
am sure I will get compliments and I will send them your way.
This site is one of a few that
actually delivers what they advertise.
Excellent product, service, amd communication. Highly reccommended.
I just received the handbag and belt. I am so excited with both. Your workmanship is exquisite. I plan on going back to your
website to order another purse in brownï¿½this time with the pigskin lining!
Thank you so much for all your care, talent, and skill. I will treasure your products with lots of TLC for years to come.

My package arrived today. Thanks for such a beautiful job. Words can't
do it justice. So unusual to see such quality workmanship these days.
Needless to say your web site is bookmarked.
How long have you been doing the leathercraft? Your web site is
something to go through. I could almost smell the leather as I went
from page to page.
Thanks again for doing such a great job. It is exactly what I have
been trying to find for a number of years.
Hi Henry, I never got to thank you for the prompt delivery of the black leather belt and I
also wanted to tell you how nice it was doing business with you.
I could not believe how quickly the package arrived in my mailbox!
My friend loves the belt and everybody is happy ;)
Have a nice day and to future orders...
Got the belt today. Looks good, fits well. Very happy.
Thanks for the great product, and prompt service.
I just wanted to let you know that I received by check book cover already
and that I really love the check book cover. It has been what I have been
looking for. I am glad that I found your web-site and wanted to let you
know that you will hear from me when needing leather products. I will
recommend you to all my friends and relatives.
You are AMAZING!
I took a trip to Blairsville, Ga., Wednesday morning, and did not return until 11:30 p.m. When I returned, there
was a box left at the front door. After opening the box, I saw the most absolutely GORGEOUS handbag that I
have ever seen! I am a handbag fanatic, especially for very large purses, and the size is perfect! You were
right when you said that the one you made is much better made and much better looking, the leather is
fantastic, in color and feel! And, I do believe, without a doubt, that you did not charge enough. For that
reason, I would like to send you another payment, maybe two, in the form of money orders. I will send it to
you as soon as possible, and if you do not receive it right away, don't think that I have forgotten. This is too
important to me.
The picture that I sent you was probably (I can't really remember) torn out from "Elle" magazine and is of an
original bag from the designer "Jo Sander", and is priced at, here goes, $1,740.00 before tax. Now, there is
no way I could afford a bag like that and, even if I could, would be crazy to do so. Now, you can see why I
searched the internet for someone like you. And I really lucked up and found you, far greater than I could
have ever expected.
Thankyou again so much! I will be spending some time now figuring out what to put in what pouch, but it
will be worth it! Oh, by the way, I will not need to shop for anymore purses ever, as this will be my bag for
My order of five belts arrived and all are exactly as requested.
PERFECT. Terrific workmanship and sizing as your detailed instructions
indicated. Many thanks.

repay you, besides the money (which I have a feelilng that you are being underpaid). is to tell and show everyone, by
way of the purse, how skilled you are and what a nice person! Thank you again and I will be talking to you!
The belt arrived today. Thanks for your fine craftsmanship! I
couldn't be more pleased. It's getting hard to find such high
quality and prompt personal service these days. You can count on me
to order additional items from you in future.
Thanks for the update. Talk about great service! I'm looking
forward to my new belt. Thanks also for the heads up about the
leather suspenders. Definitely something I'll keep in mind.
The bags arrived this afternoon and they are awesome! The cedar is absolutely gorgeous, so I have ordered the
custom-made purse with the pouches in that leather. Just email me if you have any problems or need to contact me.
The custom case you made for my Stratton powder
compact is beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I
love the fact that I can accessorize the beautiful
purses you've made me with matching items for all my
needs. Thanks, Henry!
received items today. I'm very pleased you do great work and
very fast also. I will plan to shop with you in near future.
Thanks for the fine quality and great service! Belt is perfect. Talk to you soon.
I absolutely love the purse that I purchased and it's kind of nice to know that it was made
especially for me. I received a lovely email from the man who made it when he started making it
and when he sent the product. Can't get much better service than that and on top of it all a
superior product. I have never had a nicer bag!!
This was really a great experience...I had always had inhibitions regarding doing business over
the internet especially with someone I never met and/or heard about...This proves that Honesty
and Great Craftsmanship still exist. I truly enjoy this piece that was made for me....I trust
it will be marketed to others...I even got a Rebate...
The key case came in and it is perfect. Excellent workmanship.
I will be ordering more stuff as soon as my wife decides exactly what she
Re: Check Covers
They are perfect. Many thanks!
Just wanted to write and thank you for the lovely bag you made for me. The workmanship is incredible and worth every penny.
Thank you for enclosing your business cards. I know this bag will get a lot of compliments and I want to be able to send them
straight to you.
Thanks again. It is beautiful.
Received the Eye Glass Case on yesterday...Turned out Really Great!! Couldn't wait to tear open the carton...I have
showed it to everyone...Everyone is sooooo impressed. I say what do you expect out of a "Georgia Man"..Only the
Best ..I too am from Georgia...Only transplanted here a little over a year ago from Brunswick-St Simons Island...Have
lots of family still in Georgia and some reside in and near Atlanta
Received the bag today. It is awesome. I have places for everything, and I can lug it all over Virginia without
killing my shoulder, thanks to the waist strap.
Personally, I think it is much better looking than a Coach bag.
Thanks also for the cards. There were several people waiting to see what you came up with, so I will hand them
P.S. My husband said, it should take a while for me to kill this one.

The pictures you've added to your handbag descriptions look terrific! They're perfect for showing the dimensions of the
bags in relation to a real person, and your models look great, too.
Oh yeah, I washed Chuck's wallet by accident in the pocket of his jeans and once it dried you couldn't even tell. There's no way any
other wallet would have gone through that and still looked good.
I received my handbag on Friday it's great!!!!!!!!!!!
thank you for doing such a nice job.
I may have you make another one but not as tall, let's see how this works for now.
Thanks again, I really am thrilled to have my favorite handbag again.
My City Handbag arrived yesterday and it's everything
I knew it would be - beautiful leather, great style
and absolutely perfect craftsmanship. I'm so pleased
with all of the pieces I've purchased from you over
the past 6 months, and will be using them proudly for
many years to come.
Thanks once again, Henry.
Great web site! I just wanted you to know that the wonderful wallet you made for me years ago at the Norwich shop is still going
strong. That must have been more than 3 or 4 years ago, I guess...
Hope all is well. Ham and Faith have moved up here to the Cape to be with Norm, Patsy, me and our families.

(A note from Henry: Penny is my long lost cousin, and it should read 30 - 40 years ago, though I'm sure I am running on a faster biological clock, Judy says it's probably only been 25 years.)
(re: making copy of old handbag)
The handbag arrived today and it took my breath
away. The job you have done is just incredible.
I forwarded your preview email to my daughter and
she fell in love with the bag all over again.
Originally I bought the bag for myself but my
daughter conned me out of it. :) The old bag has
been with her since high school and has traveled
with her to Italy, China, Taiwan, England and
Chicago where she was a student. You have more
than come through for me. I can only say many
thanks again, and I hope to be able to use you
again soon. If you have any business cards send
me some so that I can give them out.
thanks so much,
(Re: Anytime Backpack)
Rave reviews! Everyone was QUITE impressed. This
morning I had everything packed in it - binder, water
bottle, pocket pc, makeup bag, glasses, phone, with
room to spare. I ended up pulling the shoulder straps
through the short handle and carrying it into work
that way; I'll use it as a backpack when I'm out and
about and carrying it for longer distances. Fits very
comfortably and is a terrific size.
Your product details are excellent & the write-up attitude is mah-velous.
Received the belt today....Beautiful and exactly the quality I have been looking for. You have a new, very satisfied customer.
The wallet arrived yesterday. Excellent, just what I was looking for!
I like to report that the bag repairs appear to be working out great.
I will be ordering some item in the near future.
Thanks again, I missed using this bag and its functionality.
OH!!! I was not aware that I could do this - they look like permanent
rivets. This is great and thank you so much. Sorry for the confusion!
PS - The leather quality of the belt is very good. I love it!
I just received your package in the mail. Outstanding!!!!!
and attention to detail in duplicating my wife's
wallet is obvious when looking at your final product. She is going to
be thrilled with this birthday gift! And thank you again for
re-stitching the original wallet. It has been a pleasure doing business
Thank you for your prompt response. I will try the tan kote & let you know how it goes. I really appreciate
the fact that you took the time to give me advice.
Thank you so much for the bag! It is absolutely perfect - exactly what I
wanted. I really couldn't be happier! Your work is absolutely
gorgeous. Thanks again!
The custom Franklin-Covey compact size
binder you made for me is just perfect and exactly
what I was wanting. As usual, the stitching and
attention to detail is beyond compare, and this is a
beautiful addition to my "Henry" collection. For
Franklin-Covey planner users, they will sell just
binder rings (call customer service) and Henry can
work his magic with his beautiful leathers and
craftsmanship. Mine includes a business card/ID
window, inside pockets and pen loop. Awesome! Thanks
Hi Henry -
I received the handbag today and I LOVE it!!!!! I know it's different from the bags you usually
make, but I hope this will be the first of a new product line for you...
I really appreciate your excellent customer service--it was a pleasure working with you on this
Thank you very much!

Pat received the wallet and the little "extra" that you sent with it ... He is ecstatic !!!!!!!!!! It is a beautiful grain and I will let
you know how it works out as time progresses.... Meanwhile, I am telling all my friends about your wonderful work!
Received today. Thank you very much. The bag is great!
please email your website address so I can find you again.
Thanks for the info. I went to the post office this morning with the
tracking number you provided and sure enough it was there. Thanks a lot for
helping with this. By the way, the key chains were even better than the
pictures made them out to look. I didn't realize they were as long as they
are, but I like it. Great product.
Very satisfied with service, they even contacted me by email to verify belt size. Everything
was shipped promptly.
Thanks so much for your leather care advise. I honestly thought I was doing my new bag an injustice by not
treating it in some way. I can just relax and let the leather do the work.
Thanks for the terrific job you did on the custom zip
bags I ordered. They'll fit perfectly in my Courier
handbag and hold all kinds of stuff. Couldn't be

I am so satisfied with your work. For the price, I think the workmanship fantastic. I will be
placing other orders in the future. And, I will be showing off my new bag to all my friends
and telling them about LeatherGoodsConnection.com

Delivered on time and seems to be top notch quality.

Received my Weekender today and Henry has outdone
himself again! This is the most handsome, well-made
bag of it's type that I've ever seen, and having had
other items made by him, this is no surprise. Every
element of the bag has been well thought out and
executed with the finest of materials, always with
form and function in mind. A similar designer-label
bag would cost at least twice as much, and not be half
as well made. The other items I've purchased from
Henry (Courier handbag, cosmetic case, etc.) are
breaking in beautifully and I'll carry them with pride
for years to come. The Weekender is a great addition
to my collection - thanks AGAIN, Henry!

Well- I anxiously awaited the fed-ex truck this morning.
I LOVE IT !!!!
the color is awesome and the feel is perfect! (cool zipper by the way ! )
I like the rounded edges and it lays perfect. I can't wait to show it
You did a great job- it's really beautiful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!!

My previous e-mail was the "website quality" comments but don't even BEGIN to convey how happy I am with everything. At one
time or another I've owned every major designer brand of handbag, including Coach, Brighton, Dooney, Brahminï¿½ you name it.
They absolutely pale in comparison to your work. The stitching is perfect and the quality and weight of the leather is
unbelievable. These are without a doubt the finest leather items I've ever owned and I will show them off every opportunity I get.
My husband was crazy about his new wallet. And the keychains are the coolest, funkiest things ever. The cosmetic case is
beautiful as well - what a great size and I love the outside pockets. Many, many thanks for all you've done - count on hearing from
me again in the future!

Just wanted to let you know I received my beautiful leather goods yesterday and they are even nicer than I could ever have
imagined. The handbag is just gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. The case you designed fits my pocket PC like a glove, and
the glasses case is perfect! Every item I ordered was made with such painstaking attention to detail. I'll be proud to show off and
use my beautiful leatherwear, as well as give your work my highest recommendation. Your website is great as well - love the info on
leather care. It sold me!
Thank you so much, Henry!

The 7 Braid Belt is Awsome! Thanks Henry!
You did a wonderful job on my belt. I'm sure I'll be back and will also recommend you
to my friends.
