Notes on the Name Shell Cordovan.

The practice for producing the illustrious shell cordovan leather material originated in Cordoba, Spain. For centuries, Cordoba was famous not only for its leather production but for its gold and silver work as well. The word cordovan qualifies objects or practices of or relating to Cordoba. But let’s reach back a bit further. The city was founded in ancient Roman times as Corduba. When it was seized by the Moors in 711, it was known by the Arabic transliteration, Qurtubah. In later years, the city came to be known as Cordoba or Cordova. Thus today we have the name cordovan leather, vegetable-tanned. The word shell refers to the circular sheets of leather produced from the hindquarters of a horse.

How to Measure your Belt size

How To Take Belts Measure, by Nicola Meyer

When ordering a belt on-line, the best way to assure the proper fit is to measure one of your existing belts that fits you well.
To do this, carefully stretch out the belt on a flat surface, and using a measuring tape, measure from:

A) where the buckle's "barb" enter in the hole of the belt
(see image above: usually 1 cm less the end of the buckle)

B) the hole on the belt that fits you best (this will be the loosest, or most stretched out hole)

Refer to the diagram above (Note: Do not measure to the middle hole; measure to the hole that fits you best)

If You not have a belt where to take measurements please use a TAPE MEASURE (soft) and Measure the circumference of your Pelvis waist where usually put the Belt (not to tight).
