2. How do I measure my wrist size?
To send us your correct wrist size, use a flexible tape measure (photo 1) and place it around your wrist (snug but not too tight) over your wristbone. If you don't have a flexible tape, use a piece of string and wrap around your wrist (photo 2) and mark it and measure with a standard ruler (photo 3). Send us that measurement and we will allow the necessary extra for proper fit.
The easiest way to measure your belt size is to take a current belt, lay it flat and measure from point to point as in the below image. If you don't have a current belt, thank the lord that you are visiting HawkLeather to get yourself one. Let's say you just don't have one handy, then take a tape measure and measure your WAIST or your HIPS (it all depends on where you will wear your new belt--so this is totally up to you!!!!). Measure snugly and preferably over the type pants you will normally wear. Send us that measurement and that will be the measurement to the center hole as shown in the image. There will be extra holes on either side of this hole for those "light and heavy" days.
4. How do I measure a guitar strap?
Take a current strap and lay it out flat. There is a hole in each end that attaches to buttons on the guitar. Measure the distance from hole to hole and that will be the center hole on your new strap. I will cut additional holes on either side for the adjustment to be longer or shorter for future adjustments.

Caring For My Leather Product
What do I need to do to keep my leather in good condition?
Thank you for purchasing a genuine leather product from HawkLeather.
Proper care of your leather product will give you many, many years of wear. Leather will darken with age due to contact with natural oils in your skin and prolonged exposure to sunlight.
Avoid wearing your leather wristband in the shower. If you do forget, however, do not take it off until it is dry. The pulling will cause weakness on the leather surrounding the snap and may weaken or tear the leather.
Avoid wearing your leather wristband while swimming. Chlorination in swimming pool water will affect the finish and the dye of the wristband.
Regular cleaning of your leather product isn’t really necessary. A finish has been applied to protect the colors and the leather and will last for years and years. Occasional buffing with a soft, dry cloth will remove fingerprints and brighten any spots, snaps or buckles.
However, if you wish to clean or buff your product from time to time, we recommend using common saddle soap. Please follow the directions on the label. Saddle soap is widely available at supermarkets and hardware stores.
Never use cleaning solvents on your leather. All of them contain harsh chemicals which will break down the finish and dyes. If you are not sure, don't do it!!!! Give us a shout and ask about it first. HawkLeather will not be responsible for damage to dyes or finishes if you apply any solutions to your product!!!!!
Enjoy your product,
