Good Product, But Careful - They Stretch
on July 1, 2013
Actually, over time I ended up with two of these, one black and one dark blue.
These are really nice, well made products that have just one inconvenient feature:
The first time you wear the belt, it will stretch (permanently) about 10% of its overall
- Both belts were ordered as size 40
- Both arrived with a total length from tip to tip of about 44-45" (correctly sized)
- After 2-3 wearings, both stretched permanently to around 48"
That left a too long tail flopping around in the wind. My wife cut off the tip and shortened the belts, carefully re-sewing the leather tip to the end of the shortened belt and now both are fine.
Bottom Line=> Shoot Low in terms of size. Order at least 2" to small as the belt will stretch the first time you wear i.
Other than that little problem, these are great belts. Since they flex with you, they hold your pants up nicely without feeling overly tight. Highly recommended.
