Great Belt Overall
on April 12, 2016
I really love this belt- it's exactly what I was looking for!
To decide what size to order, I measured my waist with my jeans on, using a soft tape measure and running it through the loops, where the belt would be. I measured 36'' but went against the measurement guide and ordered a medium size, instead of the recommended large. As other reviewers have mentioned, your measurement will vary depending on whether you wear your pants higher on your waist or lower on your hips, so keep that in mind.
The medium belt itself is about 1.25'' wide and measures about 43'' long, including the buckle. There are five holes, spaced about 1'' apart.
I wear it with my jeans, which range between a size 9 to a size 11, depending on the brand. The medium belt fits me in the third hole for a looser, more comfortable fit or the fourth hole (from the end) for a tighter, more snug fit. This still leaves me with room to loosen or tighten in the event of any weight gain or loss. The third and forth holes are roughly 36'' from the buckle, which corresponds perfectly to the waist measurement I had made before purchasing this belt!
The color is maybe just a shade lighter than what is depicted in the image. The texture is that of rugged, brushed leather, which you can't really discern from the image. It is comfortable, easy to buckle and unbuckle and keeps my pants in place. The belt has a very sturdy and strong feel to it, despite being made in China.
I also love the mini belt loop; it gives the belt a cute touch! It is removable so you can adjust it any way you want, but I like it where it is.
A great belt overall. I very pleased with this purchase!
