How to define your belt size?
1 - Overview
Warning, the size of a belt does not correspond to its total length, but to the distance between the inner edge of the loop and the 3rd hole.
With our experience and because of the long life of our products we recommend our customers to buy their belt with a setting to their size at the 4th hole. If your weight increases you can use it at the 3rd hole and if your weight decreases you can reduce it. In both cases you will enjoy your belt longer.
If you want a setting on the 4th hole do not hesitate to tell us when ordering.
2 - How to define your belt size?
Here are two methods to help you determine your waistband. Both methods are easy and simple to follow, and provide a reliable and accurate result.
2.a - Measure the size of a belt.
This is the method we use most often in our point of sale.
Using one of your belts, measure from the inside edge of the buckle to the hole you are using (it is normally marked by use). There you go...
2.b - Measure around your pants.
This second method is as precise as the previous one but it is more complex because it takes into account the type of pants that you will wear.
This method consists of measuring the lap of the pants on which you will wear the belt. For example, if you have high-waisted pants, the size of the belt will be equal to your waist, ie where there are passers-by pants. And the lower your pants, the larger the size of the belt will be important.
Step 1: Wear the pants on you
Step 2: Take the tape measure and introduce it into the trousers loops.
Step 3: When the tape measures around the trousers, fix it on the front and take the measurement. This measurement corresponds to the size of the belt.
With this method, if your measurement is between 2 sizes, it is advisable to take the larger size. For example, if your measurement is 87 centimeters, it is recommended to take size 90.
Tip: If you do not have tape measure, use a non-stretchable string to measure and extend the length of the string on a ruler to know your measure.
That's it, you know now how to take the size of your belt, do not hesitate to contact us if you wish a council.
