Made for & approved by Life Guards customers and the by the Regimental Adjutant of the Household Cavalry.
The Life Guards is the most senior regiment of the British Army and part of the Household Cavalry, along with the Blues and Royals.
The Life Guards grew from four troops of Horse Guards raised by King Charles II around the time of his restoration in the 17th century.
Battle honours are lengthy, including the Normandy Landings, Waterloo, The Somme, Ypres, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Colonel-in-Chief is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Our Life Guards belt is hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads.
We use the highest quality leather to ensure our belts are extremely long lasting and durable.
This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The old Life Guards tie is not a tie at all. It’s a Manyatta belt.
IMPORTANT - HOW TO MEASURE A BELT:
We believe in being totally honest with our customers. Like a bespoke suit or pair of shoes, outstanding craftsmanship takes time. When the order is placed, the mamas in Kenya start beading your belt, utilising their cultural and ancestral skills. Once this is complete, the belt is sent to us in the UK. For this reason, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
