**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 flat cut strap of superior quality leather. 1.25 inches in width, finished with a heel bar buckle and chicago screws. Chicago screws are removable, so if you later find an awesome center bar belt buckle at a thrift store or in your uncle's attic that you want to use with your nicely-aged belt strap, you can change the buckle yourself easily with a flathead screwdriver.
Leather keeper is 3/4" thick and is hand sewn. 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!).

Super leather quality! Simple and well made--and for that reason beautiful.

Arrived promptly. Second belt from OneStarLeather and love it. First one still in good condition, just enough wear to not wear with dress clothes. Would buy again for sure. So hard to find a simple, quality leather belt.

Great belt! I love this thing. The leather is thick and sturdy, the stitching is strong, and the buckle is very well made. I know I will have this belt for a very long time. It looks great, and I could not be happier I purchased this. Thank you!
