We make the belt for you, so will size it for you rather than using shop style generic sizing. The Aim is to determine your “Belt size” which is a different thing to your waist or trouser size. Once we have your belt size, we make your new belt so that it will fit you on the middle hole, giving you adjustment either way if ever needed.
There are two methods available to work out your belt size. Method 1, if understood and measured correctly, is by far the most accurate.
Measure an existing belt.
We ask you to measure a current belt from the end of the leather strap where it meets/starts to fold around the buckle (not including the buckle itself) all the way down to the HOLE YOU USE MOST/FITS YOU BEST.
This is your belt size.
Please note: The belt size is usually around 2″ bigger than your jeans size.
Add 3″ to your trouser size. For example, if you wear 32″ jeans, order a 35″ belt.
If in doubt over the belt size, go bigger, rather than smaller.
This method is not as accurate as method 1. However it maybe useful if you are buying the belt as a gift and know the recipients trouser size, but cannot measure one of their existing belts.
