Belt (multiple colours)
Belt (multiple colours)
The Gusset Leather belt is made from a single piece of 9-10oz Water Buffalo leather cut to a 1.25” width. The edges are beveled and burnished smooth and the end is finished with a traditional English Point.
I fit all belts with a #49 roller buckle because I find this buckle offers the best combination of durability and comfort. You may, however, request a specific style of buckle via custom order if you prefer.
Standard sizing will include 5” of adjustability (2 holes on either side of center) unless otherwise specified. Your measurement will apply to the center hole in the billet end of the belt. See below for examples of how to calculate your belt size.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BELT SIZE:
Unfortunately belt sizing and pant sizing rarely, if ever, coincide. Traditionally the belt size would refer to the actual length of the belt strap from the ‘heel’ of the buckle to the hole in use. This is, however, mostly unhelpful because it does not account for the various lengths and styles of buckles that are available.
Here’s a few methods I would recommend for calculating your belt size, listed in order of accuracy:
Take a belt you already wear and measure from the end of the buckle to the current hole you are using. This is the most accurate way to make sure you get a belt that fits you perfectly. This measurement method accounts for the stretch in the belt, the non-linear shape of the belt, and the way the belt forms to your waist.
Measure the circumference of your waist. This can be somewhat accurate, but given that your belt will not necessarily fit around your waist the same way that a tape measure does there is still room for a fair bit of discrepancy. The natural shape of a belt is not straight - for most people it will be a slight U shape - and the thickness of the belt material will increase the outer circumference as compared to a tape measure. If you choose to measure your waist, try feeding the tape measure through your belt loops to make sure you measure the correct height for your waist-line.
Pant size does generally correspond to belt size. For men’s pant sizes, the length from the end of the buckle to the center hole of the belt strap will be the pant size plus 4”. That said, pant sizing will vary depending on how the pants are worn and sometimes there can be major differences in sizes from store to store in how a particular pant size fits (eg. Eddie Bauer vs. Banana Republic).
