A sturdy, beautiful belt made with Horween leather that will last for years.
**YOU MUST MEASURE YOUR BELT SIZE ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW - IT IS NOT THE SAME AS YOUR PANT SIZE.**
THE ONE STAR BELT
A simple strap of superior quality leather. Finished with a sturdy buckle and chicago screw. Chicago screws are removable, so if you later find an awesome belt buckle at a thrift store or in your uncle's attic that you want to use with your nicely-aged belt strap, you can change the buckle yourself easily with a flathead screwdriver.
The leather is incredible - Dublin from the legendary Horween Tannery in Chicago. This leather is soft and supple and will stretch about 1" as you break it in (I work that into the sizing, see below). The edges are beveled, dyed and burnished.
SIZING - **IMPORTANT**
I custom fit these belts to my customers. The measurement I need is NOT your pant size.
The best way to determine your belt size is by measuring a current belt that fits you well. Measure the distance from the hole you use most all the way to the other end of the belt to where the leather folds over the buckle. Your belt size is typically a few inches larger than your pant size.
I will use your measurement as one hole tighter than the middle hole of a run of 5 holes (1 inch apart) - to account for about 1" of stretch in the belt as it breaks in. Remember to double check your belt measurement.
