Old Shirburnian (Sherborne School)
Sherborne School is an independent boarding school for boys, located beside Sherborne Abbey in Sherborne, Dorset.
It was founded in 1550 by King Edward VI, making it one of the oldest schools in the United Kingdom.
Sherborne School is one of only 5 remaining single-sex boys' independent boarding schools in the country, with around 560 boys. That said, facilities and classes are shared with Sherborne Girls School.
Sherborne's buildings and grounds have been used in many films including: The Browning Version, Goodbye Mr Chips, The Imitation Game and Wolf Hall.
Notable Old Shirburnians include Alan Turing, Cecil Day-Lewis, King Mswati III of Swaziland, Jeremy Irons, Hugh Bonneville and Chris Martin of Coldplay.
Our Old Shirburnian belts are hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads.
They use the highest quality leather to ensure they are extremely long lasting and durable.
This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
It has been designed on the Old Shirburnian tie, predominantly navy blue with red and gold stripes.
The Old Shirburnian 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!
