Here's some pics of my actual belt after putting in new holes. The belt comes stock with holes only every 2 inches. I think every 1 inch is better in terms of fit and being about to tighten/loosen it based on the type of pants you are wearing, etc.
Also, one of the nice things about getting a raw natural belt is that over the years, it darkens and wears. Buying a vintage belt is just not the same IMO because you didn't wear it down to that point yourself.
