Men’s Belt Size Chart
This post was last updated on March 14th, 2021 at 08:19 pm
It is easier to determine a belt size for men than that for women in general, but easy still needs a Men’s Belt Size Chart, in our opinion. If you are unsure what the size your existing belt has, you can just opt to measure it correctly to see the right size. Then you can pick the size closest to that measurement as your belt size. Men’s belt sizes are usually labeled in inches, although some brands are offering even-number sizing which can sometimes be a little limiting. Men with very tiny or very broad waists will find it difficult to easily find the right belt size in off-the-rack shops, which mostly sells generally sized belts.
Your belt size is not the same as your pants size, nor your waist size. The most accurate way to determine your belt size is actually to measure your waist using a tape measure. Measure the hip area where your belt usually sits.
The easiest way to determine belt size for men is simply “add 2″ to your off-the-rack trouser size.
If you wear a 34” waist trouser, then a 36″ belt size will do the job. When you’re used to wearing your pants on traditional height–close to the natural waistline; this simple formula will work.

General Belt Information
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 men’s belt
Regular cleaning can be done with a wet cloth.
How to clean your belts
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
