Belt Sizing Guide

It's a common misconception that your belt size and waist size are the same. But they ARE NOT! So how do you know what size belt to buy?

OPTION 1: Measure Your Favorite Belt

When measuring your belt, DO NOT include the buckle. Measure from the middle hole to the end of the leather (illustration above). That will give you the size belt you need to buy.

OPTION 2: Add 2" to Waist Size

FOR MEN ONLY - You can get get a good idea of what size belt you'll need by adding 2" to your waist size - rounding odd sizes up to the nearest even size. Women's pants are measured differently, so this method WILL NOT work for them. The chart below illustrates this concept.

Pant Size 30" 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46"
Belt Size 32" 34" 36" 38" 40" 42" 44" 46" 48"

Converting to Small, Medium, Large,...

If the belt you want is sized in small, medium, large,... you'll need to convert your measurement using the following information.

Belt Size Small Medium Large X-Large
Waist Size 30" 34" 38" 41"
