Old Alleynian (Dulwich College)
Old Alleynian is the name given to alumni of Dulwich College.
Dulwich College is an independent day and boarding school for boys which was founded by Edward Alleyn in 1619. It began as 'The College of God's Gift' but took its current form in 1870 when it moved into its current premises.
Notable Old Alleynians include Sir Ernest Shackleton, Sir PG Wodehouse, Raymond Chandler, Michael Ondaatje, Nigel Farage and Trevor Bailey.
In recent times, Dulwich College has opened schools in Beijing, Seoul, Shanghai and Singapore, as well as other cities in China.
The belt is in a vertical design and replicates exactly the old school tie in the correct proportions of light blue, black and dark blue.
All of our belts are 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 Alleynian 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!
