I’ve been in this business for the last 35 years. In that time the cost of leather hides for my belts has risen from $35 to what they are today at $180. I use the best materials available in the country for these belts. Because of this high cost in materials I like to size twice and cut once on all my orders.
“Absolutely the best way to size a belt is to get the center hole measurement off an old belt.”
On a traditional belt I place 2 holes to each side of this center hole measurement.
On a hook style belt I place you in the 3rd loop from the end giving you 3 loops tighter and 2 loops looser.
If this belt is a gift for someone else I need an accurate pant size. For a pant size measurement you need to add 2″ to existing pant size. For example if you wear a 36″ pant you would order a 38″ size. This method is not as accurate as the first because it doesn’t take into account where they wear the belt on there torso.
Please Note: It is up to you to give me the correct size. As you see, I go to great lengths to get the correct size and am not in the business of returns. All work begins and ends on my bench. I appreciate your interest.
