NOTE: now constructed with rivets instead of Chicago screws. Please read the entire description below:
**YOU MUST MEASURE YOUR BELT SIZE ACCORDING TO THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW - IT IS NOT THE SAME AS YOUR PANT SIZE.**
THE ONE STAR BELT
A simple strap of superior quality leather, finished with a durable buckle. Buckles are secured with rivets, but if you would prefer the buckle to be removable, Chicago screws are an available option: You may add the $2 listing "Belt add-on: Chicago screws instead of rivets (set of 2)" to your order when ordering your belt (find that listing in the Belts section of the shop).
The leather is incredible - Chromexcel from the legendary Horween Tannery in Chicago. This leather is soft and supple and will stretch about 1" as you break it in (I work that into the sizing, read below). The edges are not beveled, but will develop a nice, crisp rounded shape as the belt wears in.
BELT MEASUREMENT ("SIZE" - ENTER ABOVE) - **IMPORTANT**
Each belt is custom sized. The measurement I need is *NOT* your pant size. Keep reading:
To determine your belt size, measure a current belt that fits you well. Measure the distance (in inches) from the hole you use most to the other end of the belt where the leather folds over the buckle (at the base of the buckle prong). You will probably notice that your belt size is a few inches larger than your pant size. See the included photo for how to measure.
When you receive your belt, the middle of 5 holes will be 1" smaller than your measurement. This is to account for about 1" of stretch in the belt as it breaks in. After break-in, your given measurement should fall close to the middle hole. This is not an exact science and each piece of leather will break in slightly differently.
Remember to double check your belt measurement! WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MISTAKES IN MEASUREMENTS. The size you order is the size you will receive.
Custom sized belts are not returnable unless we made a mistake (in which case please contact us and we will correct it!).

Excellent belt, read sizing instructions carefully and you'll be fine. Definitely go on size smaller cause the horween will stretch.

Easy to deal with and very responsive. Awesome belt. Like the fact that buckles can be changed out. Great quality.

The belt itself is supple, but simultaneously thick and full grain. There is no question about the quality of the leather and selection, and there is no break-in period. As the leather selection was good, the belt has no imperfections. The No. 8 matches a Viberg No. 8 perfectly, and is deep and consistent throughout the leather. In terms of service, I had special alteration requests as well as shipping requirements, and Keegan at One Star made sure that everything went smoothly despite the short notice. I will definitely be purchasing more leather goods from One Star in the near future.
