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 - Dublin 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, see below). The edges are beveled, dyed and burnished.
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.
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! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MISTAKES IN MEASUREMENTS. The size you order is the size you will receive.
Custom sized belts are not returnable unless I made a mistake (in which case please contact me and I will correct it!).

This belt is exactly what it's supposed to be. All features and measurements were as expected, the leather is tanned beautifully, and the belt is breaking in nicely. I had high expectations for this item and I am not disappointed. Pay attention to the expected ship time, which is not short. It actually took 39 days for my belt to arrive, which was a couple weeks longer than the original date. On the original date I received a note from the seller to notify me it would be late and to explain, which I appreciated... but 39 days is still a long time to wait for a single item order. Other than that - no complaints. The belt is great and ultimately I would order from One Star again.
