Stumbled into this little treasure trove completely at random and couldn't be more pleased. Friendly staff with no 'hard sell' and they really know their product; we had a great chat about how different leather will take the colour differently and age differently making every belt unique. In a year since I visited my belt has become a firm favourite. In fact it's my go-to for most days whether at work or casual. The quality really stands out and the leather has suffered zero cracking or warping that I've noticed from big naMe high Street retailers . Absolutely recommended.

A gorgeous shop to visit with really helpful staff. Belts were £19-£44 all made of really gorgeous leather in a really exciting spectrum of colours. Can't wait to come back for Christmas shopping!

Very unique little shop. The man who served us was so helpful and clearly loves his craft which makes the shop even better. We purchased a belt and also took some free leather scraps for our own projects.

I initially bought two belts from Hip & Waisted and due to my error got the sizes wrong. Fee and Adam were fantastic, replaced them with custom belts (with a specially bought buckle) and I received 2 new beautiful leather belts in no time at all. I'm delighted with the service and the belts, and thoroughly recommend Hip & Waisted.

A great find whilst on holiday. Managed to get two fantastic wide belts for jeans. Beautiful quality and they didn’t have my size in the colour I wanted so they made it there and then from a hide! The buckles are beautiful and it’s amazing to have such great customer service – will definitely be ordering online. Can’t wait for them to start making shoes !!! LOL 😂
