A belt measurement is always best - trousers sizes etc are really just an estimate, albeit a good one hopefully.
The best way by a long way is
Measure your existing belt from, but not including the buckle to the hole you wear the belt on most. Assuming your belt is reasonably substantial thats generally the size you should order. The belt we make for you will be that length from the buckle to the middle of the 7 holes it has (by default), and an overall length (ex buckle) of that length +7". If your belt is quite thin its probably worth rounding the size you order up a little. There are several designs (the L&Rs, the Sam Browne and the Garrison) where you need to order 1/2 to 1" bigger, but other than those this should work for all our belts. We've no problem making belts with custom hole spacing, more or less holes, 1/2" sizes etc etc, just let us know at the time of order or get in touch to chat through what you want pre or post order and we'll sort it out for you, I'm always happy to chat through questions or ideas.Our sizing guide is here
, for completeness
I hope that helps,
