Old Canfordian (Canford School)
Old Canfordian is the name given to the alumni of Canford School, the distinguished independent boarding and day school in Dorset, UK.
Canford was founded in 1923 and since 2010 it is the sponsor of The Bourne Academy, a state-funded school in nearby Bournemouth.
Notable alumni include: the 10th Viscount Portman, David Sheldrick, Sir Henry Cecil, Alex Hibbert and Miranda Cooper.
The Old Canfordian belt is designed on the tie and is in a vertical style of black with light blue, light green and white stripes, in the correct proportions.
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 Canford School 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!
