Hey, I got a leather belt from Jean shop that is about 3 inches to long.

Should I send it back for a smaller size, cut it myself, or taking it to a leathersmith?

It was a pretty pricey belt, so i dont want to ruin it.

Thanks,

Parker

I would send it back for a smaller size rather than do anything drastic. Even if it costs you shipping, that cost is far better than doing something you may regret!

are you sure its 3" too large. belt sizes run 2" per size. you will still be 1" too large. better to move the buckle.
