Anyone have one of these belts?

I've been intending to get one for awhile, and I went to do so today, and noticed this: "Order your normal waist size. Our belts are true to size, neither oversized nor undersized." Huh? So not two sizes up, like every other belt I've ever purchased?

I've emailed them, but I thought I'd ask here in case someone has experience.

I have a coule of their bridle leather belts and you do order your actual size - just run a tape measure around your waist where your jeans sit and order that size.

I'm happy with it. Color is quite dark, if a little flat; I think it looks great with raw/dark wash jeans. Sizing is pretty honest--I ordered the 36 and it's 36 inches from the center hole to the end of the belt (it fits a little longer with the buckles I use, but the brass buckle it comes with is small, so fits true). Also, it's stretched a little since I got it. There are seven sizing holes, each a little less than an inch apart. Leather was a little dry when it arrived, I should condition it with something.

so 36 inches to the center hole, and there are 3 holes on each side, right. ok sounds good. I'm a 30" waist. 29 in RRDS, 30 in APC NS.

From your description, sounds like I got the right size (30). Thanks.

So you're normally a 38" inch belt size, but the 36" works out??
