Belt Selection

Step 1. Choose the Belt Width

1.75"= The widest belt width that most Jean loops will accommodate. Great for work or casual wear.
1.5"= The standard width for all Jean loops and all Theme Buckles.The most common belt width.
1.25"= The standard belt width for Dress Pants, Khakis and Slacks.

Step 2. Order your Pant Size

Simply order your BELT to match your PANT SIZE in inches. For example, if you wear a 34'' JEAN, order a 34'' BELT. We will take care of the rest! All of our belts are custom-sized with a standard range of 5 holes to accommodate different style pants, buckles and seasonal changes.
*Keep in mind that belt sizing may vary across brands and styles. As a general rule of thumb, note that your belt will measure approximately 3-4 inches larger than your pant size when considering the thickness of the leather, the jean material and the rise of the pants.

Belt Buckle Style (Standard Buckle vs. Theme Buckle)

Standard Buckle

Below is an example of a "Standard Buckle" which comes included with each of our belts at no extra charge. Using a "Standard Buckle" will NOT alter the sizing of your belt. If you wear 34'' PANTS and plan to use a "Standard Buckle", order a 34'' BELT.

Theme Buckles

Below is an example of a Theme Buckle. Using a "Theme Buckle" WILL change the sizing of your belt. If you purchase one of our Theme Buckles at an additional cost, or if you have your own, SUBTRACT TWO INCHES from your jean size. If you wear 34'' PANTS and plan to use a "Theme Buckle", order a 32'' BELT.
