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. Most of our belts allow about +/- 1½ inches adjustment in size. If you are between sizes, order the next size up. The Hornback Crocodile Belts allow about +/- 1 inch adjustment in size, ½ inch less than our American belts. Order the next size up if your belts normally run tight.
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)||28½-30||30½-32||32½-34||34½-36||36½-38||38½-40||40½-42||42½-44|
|Girth at Belt||28-29||30-31||32-33||34-35||36-37||38-39||40-41||42-43|

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.
