Please add 2 inches to your usual pant waist size to get the correct belt size (For example if you wear size 34 waist pants then order a size 36 belt).
Belts are normally measured from the buckle bar to the center hole at the other end, representing actual waist size. A size 36 belt would fit a bare waist size 36, but allowances for clothing have to be made. This measurement is a standard for leather belt sizing because the buckle pin and pinhole meet at a fixed size point.Belts are usually ordered 2 sizes over waist size to allow for jeans or other clothing. So if your waist size is 36, a size 38 belt would do fine.
