Old Pauline (St Paul's School)
Old Pauline is the name given to alumni of St. Paul's School, an independent day and boarding school for boys situated in Barnes, west London.
St Paul's was founded in 1509 by John Colet and it is one of the original nine British 'Clarendon' public schools.
Since 1881, St Paul's has had its own preparatory school, St Paul's Junior (formerly known as Colet Court).
St Paul's was ranked only recently as the leading boys' school in the country academically.
The school has, since 2009, embarked on an ambitious redevelopment programme estimated to take up to 25 years.
Notable Old Paulines include: John Milton, Samuel Pepys, Samuel Johnson, GK Chesterton, Field Marshall Montgomery, Isaiah Berlin, Eric Newby, Clement Freud, George Osborne and Dan Snow,
The belt is designed on the old school tie and features a vertical pattern of red, black and white stripes in the same 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.
This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The old St Paul's 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!
