(Newswire.net — March 5, 2016) Corona, CA — What’s still new after nearly half a century of excelling in one tight niche market? If the release of Lejon’s 2016 product catalogue is the only thing you’ll find new about the company this year, that’s good. Lejon of California has been doing one basic thing for close to half a century now, and you’d expect them to have the process of manufacturing and distributing an extensive collection of real leather belts and leather wallets down to a fine science. And they have.

With so many manufacturing jobs being moved offshore these days, it’s great to see such a reliable industry leader still doing what they’ve been doing for nearly 50 years and continuing to lead the industry in their efforts. An all-American company using only the finest American grown full-grain leather for their full grain leather belts and leather wallets, they’ve seen imitators come and go, and then fall by the wayside once realizing there is no true substitute to old-world craftsmanship, hard work and old-fashioned family values. Add to that a helping of value and quality, competitive pricing and sterling customer service and you’ve created a great combination that’s hard to beat.

Everything at Lejon is Up to Standards

Conducting business with the aid of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) with their large retailing partners, automated purchasing, and inventory systems allows Lejon to provide outlets with just what they need and just in time to keep everything running smoothly. Forty-eight years of handling customer needs have taught this company a thing or two about how to succeed in leather making and distribution. One factor that holds great potential for expansion is the hosting of some impressive displays at the various trade shows being held around the country during 2016.

Whether it’s full grain leather belts or other genuine leather accessories, not only is the company itself getting a little long in the tooth, but if you did a survey of Lejon customers from decades ago, you would likely encounter people still using real leather belts or wallets purchased 20 or 30 years ago. With the patina developed over that many years of use, not only should these items continue to be serviceable, but they should have an appearance as good or better than the day they were new.

Lejon products display well, and those who are fortunate enough to attend one of the following trade show venues can see how beautifully made they are up close and personal!

January 15 through 19 – Western and English Sales Association (WESA) hosts the industry’s largest Western and English Saddlery Exhibit in Denver, the perfect venue for displaying Lejon’s Vintage Bison USA real leather belts and accessories. Held at the Denver Mart, just north of downtown, this is a large, fun-filled trade show.

January 24, 25, 26 – MRket NY – Global Fashion Trade Show, Fair and Exhibition. Held at the Javits Convention Center, NYC.

February 7, 8, 9 – Chicago Collective – Opening party coinciding with Super Bowl Sunday to be followed by The Show, a 2-day presentation of men’s classic apparel and accessories from more than 300 exhibitors, held in the famous Merchandise Mart in Chicago.
