Old Bradfieldian (Bradfield College)
Old Bradfieldian is the name given to those alumni who attended Bradfield College, an independent boarding school in Berkshire, United Kingdom.
Bradfield College was founded in 1850 by Thomas Stevens, Rector and Lord of the Manor of Bradfield.
Notable Old Bradfieldians include: David (Baron) Owen, Sir John Nott, Sir Timothy Ackroyd, Louis de Bernieres, Nick Higham, Brigadier Mike Calvert, Air Chief Marshall Sir Christopher Courtney, Peter Came and the cricketer Mark Nicholas.
The belt has been designed in a vertical style based on the Old Bradfieldian colours of burgundy, gold and white.
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.
The standard belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The thin size is 1.25 inches wide.
The Old Bradfieldian 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!
