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.
- Put your existing belt on and note which hole you are most comfortable in.
- Take belt off and lay it on a flat surface.
- Measure the distance from the very top of the buckle to the hole you are most comfortable in. This is your center hole measurement. Please order to the nearest inch and put the exact distance in the comment box .

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.
