Belt size depends on your girth where your belt is worn and the buckle you
intend using with the belt. The belt size is measured from the buckle end
of the belt leather to the hole used.
You can determine your belt size using one of the following methods. Our belts
allow about +/- 1½ inches adjustment in size. If you are between sizes, order
the next size up.
Measure a belt you are currently using from the buckle end of the belt leather
to the hole in use. Round to the nearest 1/2 inch, then determine your belt
size from the following chart. This method works best when you have a belt
that fits well and will be using a similar belt buckle with your new belt.
|Belt Measurement (inches)
|Girth at Belt
Measure your girth at your belt loops while wearing your pants. This measurement
will correspond to the belt measurement plus the buckle. Determine your belt size from the chart
above. This method works well for belts worn around the hips when you do
not have an existing belt to measure.
A note on buckles ...
Normal buckles, including all the buckles we sell, add between 1 and 2 inches
to the total belt plus buckle measurement when the belt is fastened. If you
are planning on using a very large buckle, such as a western style trophy
buckle, a smaller belt size might be needed.
