Belt Sizing Information

Belts are sized different in Europe than in America.  We use a traditional American belt sizing scale. Our size will measure from the end of the leather where it folds around the buckle, to the middle hole (usually there are 5 holes) and 1" added. So as an example, a size 38 belt would measure 39" to the center hole to the back of the leather when flat. 

The most accurate way to determine your belt size is to thread a flexible tape measure through the belt loops of your pants (as you would with a belt) and mark the spot where the tape reaches exactly one time around your hip. Pick the belt size which is closest to your hip circumference. Remember to put on a pair of pants that fits you well and represents what you plan to wear. Note, that the thickness of the pants material can influence the measurements. 
We recommend having the belt hit the 2nd or 3rd hole from the tip on day-1. This will allow for some stretch in the belt over time. 

Measure An Existing Belt
You can also get your belt size with your current belt even if it does not fit perfectly: simply use a measuring tape or a folding rule to measure the length from the end of the leather, before the buckle to the center hole on your belt or the hole that fits you most comfortably - it will likely be the spot to show the most wear and tear. 
Size Up From Your Jeans
The other option would be to size up 2 inches from your jean size. So if you were a size 36 jean you would order a 38 belt.
