Meet the Team: Daelan, Developer

2-minute read

Poppy Barley Developer, Daelan. Poppy Barley offers custom, made to measure, all leather boots and shoes. Mens and women sizes 5-15. You've met our Customer Insights Specialist, our Community Manager, our Brand Design Manager, and one of Poppy Barley's founders. Now it's time to meet our secret weapon: Daelan. Although his technical job title is "Developer", his developer job description at Poppy Barley means he's also our in-house photographer, videographer, comedian, musician-DJ extraordinaire (he really was a '90s DJ), and video-game maker. Whether he's taking product shots of our made to measure boots and flats, pulling together amazing videos in just one day, or speaking "code", he makes our website/design/navigation ideas a reality. Building websites and web applications since 1999, Daelan considers web development a craft, something that takes years of constant learning and hard work to excel at. He's also a Super-Dad; when he isn't knee deep in code and pixels, he spends his time with his "two extremely handsome sons". So, who knew he'd come to work in the land of custom shoes? What we can assume from his wide variety of skills and hidden talents is that he's always up for exploring new paths and projects. In perfect Daelan style, here is a short (and we mean short) Q&A, and your chance to get to know the guy behind our website. Poppy Barley Developer, Daelan. Poppy Barley offers custom, made to measure, all leather boots and shoes. Mens and women sizes 5-15.

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
