- Measuring belts
I need a new belt. I’ve needed a new belt for a while, and now this one is not only a bit tatty (it’s a Dockers belt that I’ve had for years and years and worn pretty much every day, so I’m really quite impressed) but also a bit big 😀
I’d like a slightly shorter one – but how do I measure the current one. Are belts sized just as the length of the “belt” bit, i.e. ignoring the buckle? Is it end of belt to last hole?
Help please.Posted 3 months agoCountZeroMember
A rough guess would be the distance from the centre of the buckle to the hole that’s where it’s most comfortable on the old one, and find a belt where that distance falls midway along the run of holes in the strap, that allows a decent range of adjustment to be made.Posted 3 months agonedrapierSubscriber
Sounds like a perfect excuse for a custom belt!
