Ritchie Leather Co., Inc.
 

Lightning Arms Sports Inc. welcomes Charles (Skip) Ritchie aboard as one of our premier custom holster makers.  Skip, a prodigy and business partner of Lou Alessi for 12 years from 1984-1996, worked with Lou during his last year of life which rekindled his love for making holsters and led to the recent formation of the Ritchie Leather Co., Inc. with his brother Bob. The Ritchie brothers operate their business out of the former Alessi Shop on Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst, N.Y. which holds many fond memories for all that knew Lou.

Sizing

Many customers assume that their waist size for pants is the same as their belt measurement. This isn't usually the case. In order to make sure that you get a belt that fits you, please measure a belt you currently wear. If you already have a heavy belt, and are going to be wearing the same type of holster on your new belt as the old one, it's just a straight measurement. If, on the other hand, you currently wear a thin dress belt and don't wear a holster on it you'll probably want to add an inch or two (depending on your pistol) to the length.

Ritchie belt sizong

Measure from where the leather bends around the base of the buckle down the belt to the hole you use. Add length to that figure if the last part of the above paragraph applies. Whatever length you decide on will become the middle of the six holes on your new belt.
