Your bespoke belt will be made to your desired length, so it is very important that you give us the correct waist measurement when you place your order with us.
As a quick guide, your belt will be measured from the Leather Bend, where the leather bends around the buckle, to the middle hole as shown in the drawing.
PLEASE NOTE - There are always an odd number of holes on the belt length (i.e. 3, 5, 7, 9 or 11 etc.).
Taking your Waist measurement from an existing belt will give you the most accurate results. To do this take the measurement from the Leather Bend, where the leather bends around the buckle, as shown in the above drawing, to the hole on your existing belt that you usually use. If your existing belt is made from very thin, pliable or springy leather you might want to add 1/2 an inch (12mm) to this measurement to allow for any stretching that usually takes place when the belt is worn. This measurement is the size you will want to select on your order from the dropdown menu.
Please remember - You cannot make a belt longer, if it is too short for you. However, you can always add more holes, if the belt is slightly too long. It is much better, therefore, to order a belt that is slightly too long rather than one that is too short.
If you have any doubts about the waist size that you require please add 2 Inches (50mm) to the waist size that you give us, it is important to add room for movement. If you require any assistance about waist size, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.
The Waist size that you supply us with on your order will not be the Overall Belt Length of your belt. The Overall Belt Length will depend on several variables, and these are: -
Casual Wear Belt Lengths
Bushcraft and Workwear Belt Lengths
