Measuring Your Belt Size

Measuring Your Belt Size

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.

Quick Belt Sizing Guide

As a quick guide, your belt size will be measured from the leather/buckle edge to the middle hole as shown in Picture 1. PLEASE NOTE - There are always an odd number of holes on the belt length (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 or 11 etc.).

Measuring from an existing Belt

Taking the Waist measurement from an existing belt will give you the most accurate results. To do this take the measurement from the leather/buckle edge (as shown in Picture 1.) to the hole on your existing belt that you usually prefer. 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 give us on your order.

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 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.

Overall Belt Length

The Waist size that you supply us with on your order will not be the Overall Belt Length of your belt as this will depend on a couple of variables such as 1) The number of holes that you will be requiring on your belt, and 2) The measured spacing between each of the holes that you require.
