Trafalgar’s genuine American alligator comes exclusively from the belly section of wild Louisiana alligator. Found in the soft river beds of Louisiana’s rivers, wild Alligators grow longer and leaner, providing more consistent, undamaged hides with a superior cleanliness, quality, and suppleness. Trafalgar alligator hides are vegetable tanned not chemical tanned, making a more durable product and one that as it ages, allows for the natural oils preserved in the leather to continually polish anew. Heat glazing, a touchstone classic Trafalgar finish, enhances the hides’ natural contours and nuances and creates a high-shine luster; matte finish alligator, another introduction to Trafalgar’s style pool, adds newness to Trafalgar’s alligator vocabulary. Finally, a heated finishing process, sometimes including organic steam, which is a Trafalgar standard process when crafting alligator accessories, heightens the hide’s natural tiling. Manufactured with the best quality skins legally available, fully lined in genuine leather, crafted and finished by hand in the USA, and designed with a vision for timeless American style, Trafalgar’s Exotic Leather Collection sports both a refined haberdashery sensibility and an adventurous spirit.

Trafalgar’s belt straps have no holes. They are designed to work with compression buckles only. A compression buckle is a style of plaque buckle without a prong. Instead, it has a mechanism that clamps down onto the strap at whatever point fits best. It allows for a better fit and frees the wearer from being limited by the placement of a hole. Our straps are guaranteed to fit with our buckles; be sure to match the same size strap with the same size buckle (i.e. 1” strap with a 1” buckle.) Because the thickness of the strap is equally as important as the width of the strap to work properly with the buckle, we recommend you purchase a Trafalgar buckle along with the Trafalgar strap. A Trafalgar strap is unlikely to fit with anything but a Trafalgar buckle.

Trafalgar Belt Buying Guide 
To assure a proper fit, select a belt that is at least 2 inches larger than your pants size. For example, if your waist is 33 or 34 inches, choose a belt that is 36 inches.

Storing Leather Belts
To preserve the luster and natural beauty of Trafalgar belts we recommend that you hang them vertically, lay Trafalgar belts flat, or loosely coiled; tight coils will eventually stretch the leather. Store Trafalgar belts away from direct sunlight.
