How to Measure your Belt Size in 4 easy steps

How to measure your Belt Size in 4 easy steps

  1. Measure your waist or the place you plan to wear the belt

    The best way is to measure around where you wear the belt.

  2. Use a Measuring tape on top of your clothes

    On the desired place where you plan to wear the belt, go around your waist with a simple measuring tape. When You measure in Inches, If it is an odd number, round up to the next even number.

  3. Measure an existing belt you’re wearing

    Alternatively, you can measure at the fold, or where the buckle and the leather starts, to the hole that you currently use. Note that belt sizes always work to the middle hole of 5 holes. Do not include the buckle length in your measurement. When You measure in Inches, If it is an odd number, round up to the next even number. Don’t measure the length from end to end. You will not get the correct size that way.

  4. Convert the waist size measurement into the desired international Belt Size

    The waist size is not the same as the belt size. When measuring in inches, go 2 inches up as a rule of thumb.


Over time, leather belts tend to stretch. Braided belts or belts made out of synthetic or Vegan leathers even more so. It’s good to keep in mind that a belt that feels a little tight initially will likely wear more comfortably over time.

How to Clean your Belt

  1. Wipe the belt down with a damp cloth.

    For most cleaning, start with a soft cloth dampened with warm water. Wipe down the belt, focusing on any dirty areas. You can also just try a dry cloth if the belt isn’t too dirty.

  2. Purchase saddle soap or another leather cleaner.

    Using a cleaner designed for leather is always the best choice. Saddle soap is a traditional leather cleaner, and it will suffice. However, you can also use another cleaner specifically designed for leather, as well.

  3. Add a little cleaner to a clean cloth.

    It can help to start with a very slightly damp cloth. Add a little cleaner. If the cleaner is in a tub, like saddle soap usually is, you may need to rub the cloth in the cleaner to work up a light lather.

  4. Rub the cleaner into the leather.

    Try to follow the grain, and don’t rub too hard. Once you’ve rubbed it in, use a clean part of the cloth or another lightly damp cloth to wipe up the excess.

  5. Let it dry overnight.

    It’s best to leave the belt overnight so it has time to absorb all of the polish or cleaner. That way, it will stay on the belt instead of transferring to your hands or clothes, damaging them.
