Tucker Blair


*Prep Alert*. Watch out Smathers & Branson, there's a new kid in town selling finished needlepoint belts. Tucker Blair is a just-launched San Francisco-based company selling (at this point) solely needlepoint belts with the preptastic patterns that people who wear needlepoint love and are willing to get beat up for. Their price tag: $125, about $40 under the S&B price. I am really liking the above "Crabs and Beer" belt. Check them out right here and check back to their site for updates and new products as they just launched.

Price is regrettably too good to be true.. quality is lacking and designs aren't as good as the more expensive S&B originals.

The designs at Smathers and Branson are much much better. But good to know about this one. I like the crab and beer one too! ;-)

Just recieved my belt - went for the cabs and taxis one. very pleased with it, really good quality item and looks great too! Thanks for the heads up on this new designer.

The designs and quality look worse than the J. McLaughlin needlepoint belts. I've purchased 3 of the SB belts and can say that are worth the price!

Love, love your blog - thanks! I just wanted to second the motion for ITZASTITCH. Barbara has a gorgeous line that's beautifully made. She also does amazing custom work, will make up kits so that you can do the needlework, or anything in between.

Have a look: http://www.itzastitch.com

Are you kidding me? ITZASTICH belts are awful! We sell them at our store and as well as smathers and the smathers are much better, however just got the Tucker Blair and they are so awesome. Also like that there is a new fun company that is creative enough to see beyond just belts. Smathers has been around long enough to figure it out and havent so now someone else is doing it for them.

I love the Tucker Blair belts. I got the champagne one and it's just so adorable. The quality is awesome and def. give Smathers a run for their money. I love the headbands and flip flops too.

Tucker Blair is a complete knock-off on Smathers and Branson. Even the about section of his website copies S & B word for word. Bottom line- spend the extra money because the better quality is worth it. I've bought 4 of their belts and have been happy with every one.
