Most of our belts are sized from the Buckle Fold to the Middle Hole. A 36” belt will have a center hole at 36” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 36” belt can be worn as small as 34” and as big as 38”.
There are several options to determine your ideal belt size.
The ideal way is to measure your waist through your belt loops. This measurement is the size of belt you should purchase (i.e. if you have a 34” measurement, order a 34” belt).
An alternative option is to measure your old belt from the Buckle Fold to the Hole you Use.If your belt measures 38” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 38” belt.This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
An additional method of sizing a belt is to add 1-2 inches to your pant size. This extra inch or two will account for the material of the pant (belts are worn around the pant, while pants are measured around the waist). This is the least reliable method, since clothing manufacturers have now gone to vanity sizing to make us feel thinner!
If you didn't get the right size the first time, NO Problem, return the belt and we ship out your exchange the next day. And there are no additional shipping charges or hassles!
