Belt width to wear with jeans?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
How wide should a belt be to be wearable with jeans?

1 1/4"? 1 1/2"?

I would think 1" would be too small (like a dress belt?).

Depends on the jeans' belt loops. Anyway, if it's something like a braided or ribbon belt, then it's ok for it to be thinner.

1.5" Any less usually seems feminine.

From what I've looked at, 1.5" seems like the most common size for a jeans belt.

Anything bigger than 1.5" looks really stupid.

Depends on the jeans. I have found the most versatile width to be 1 3/8" for slim jeans and slim chinos but belts are quite hard to find in this width. 1 1/4" would be the narrowest I would go for slim dressy denim. 1 1/2" works better with with less dressy jeans and fits. 2" belts can work with workwear type looks but most jeans will not have wide enough belt loops to take them.

1" seems a bit thin for jeans. I have most between 1 3/8 and 1 5/8. one is almost 2" and is almost uncomfortable when sitting down. (The buckle is monstrous.)

I wear 1 3/4" width belt with my jeans and I find that it's wide enough and works well.

1 3/4" FTW http://www.leatherbelts.com/belts_by_width_122.html For the price this is a great belt. The leather is thick and the buckle is substantial. http://www.leatherbelts.com/leather_belts/C13.html

Nopike: Thanks for the link. Hadn't heard of Sole Survivor before. Looks like some great stuff, will kop soon.

I've been ordering custom belts from Handmaden Leather with good results. I also requested an un-dyed natural leather and she had no problem with this and no extra charge. Made in USA.
