Sizing guide

Leather Belt Sizing

When choosing the size of your leather belt there are many methods and ways to do so. Here at FC Leather, we aim to make it the most dynamic and user friendly way to ensure an accurate size.

When making your bespoke belt, simply measure your waist/hips in inches, then select that as the correct size. Please do not be guided by jean, trouser or skirt size.  If you prefer, watch the sizing video below to learn how to best take your measurements.

A common mistake in wearing belts is that the belt’s tail is either too long (showing a large loose hanging tail) or too short (barely being able to put the belt’s tail through the first loop of the garment. We calculate everything to fit perfectly within the five whole system, which means when the belt is sized correctly, you can wear the pin of the buckle through the middle hole. This gives you two inches of room either way allowing for winter and summer outfits and the belt’s tail size is automatically in the right proportion.

If for any reason the sizes available are not suitable then please contact us. Also, for any samples of materials you require, we will arrange these to be sent to you.

We also offer a personal FC summit home tailoring service by appointment only, so please contact us for more information.
