I'm afraid of ordering the wrong size. If I receive a belt that is too long or too short. Can the belt be exchanged if it doesn't fit? If so, I'm probably on board here! I've only a few hours left to get in on the drop, so if someone could please answer soon, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Yup we will take care of you.
Apologies if I missed this in the description or if it’s already been asked and answered below; but, if you choose a stainless steel buckle on the brown, will it come with matching SS rivets? Also, do you make, or would you consider making the same type of belt in a slightly wider version, say 1 3/4“?
chancing
Hi, yes the rivets do match the buckle hardware. And we definitely have the ability to make a wider version. We will see what we can do about putting out a drop for that soon. If there is anyone else on this thread that would be interested is a 1.75" wide version of this belt, please reply with a comment. Thanks!
Just received my Brown Working Mans Belt today. It is a very nice belt but I have a Hugh Issue With it. In the original description it was stated, "For proper sizing , we suggest one size larger than your pant size." Well I normally wear a 36 in. belt so I ordered the 38 in. The belt is way to long! Even at the tightest, last notch, I will need to drill an additional hole to get to my correct size. When I do cut the hole the other end of the belt will then be wrapped half way around my side looking like I have a medical problem that will appear like I lost a ton of weight! Can this be exchanged for a Brown 36 inch correct size? Thank you.

Hi,
Sorry for the confusion. The size description says to order one size up from your pant size, not your belt size. This is to account for the thickness of leather and the fact that it goes around the outside of your pants. If you sized up from your typical belt size, then it would definitely be too long.

@Dantic, the negative 2-star review you left doesn't help resolve the issue. Reaching out to us directly does. We are here to help!
I joined the drop and ordered size 34 Will it fit to me? (I wear pants size 32)
StarTAC
Yup that should fit you perfectly. Thanks for joining the drop!
Will you guys do a punk rock studded belt ? (Rare to find a good one these days)
Antibacterial
hmm that isn't currently on our radar, but email us some pictures of what you are thinking and we will definitely look into it. Thanks!
I have been using this belt since the first time I received it, really love the quality. I even gave my old belt to my dad. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
ichithekiller
So happy to hear that
Got mine today in Germany. Very nice belt. I already wear it and couldn't be happier.
leppari
Happy you like it!
Just got my belt in and I couldn't be happier! The leather is thick and meaty, but surprisingly pliable for it's heft. Hardware appears to be made from heavy gauge brass - looks nice. Not sure what the user below was complaining about with the stainless-steel prong, as the photos CLEARLY show that the hardware is two-toned. I personally think it looks great, but hey - to each their own.
Time will tell if this belt is worth the extra dough, but my initial impressions are exceedingly positive.
One change I might make? Presentation. My belt arrived in a plastic bag, packaged in a bubble-wrap manila envelope. Not a huge deal, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little underwhelmed by the presentation. A nice box or bag with a belt hole puncher would have been a nice touch!

Hey, so happy to hear you like your belt and thanks so much for the feedback. Massdrop has some strict requirements on packaging but we will definitely see if we can work with them to upgrade it a bit for future drops.
Just received my brown belt with brass buckle, and am truly disappointed. The buckle is brass but the prong is silver (stainless steel). IMO....this looks completely stupid! Why would you do that?? Looking back at the picture, the prong does look silver, so I guess I am stuck with this, but it is ugly and stupid looking. Who would make a two-tone buckle?? That's why this crap is being mass sold on Massdrop and you can't return items. If you could make returns, they would have a slew of them.
Last time I will ever buy anything from Massdrop again. Was apprehensive about buying things without seeing them and my concerns were justified.

Great response to an uncouth and ungentlemanly reply.
TellMeSomtinGood
Thank you! Much appreciated!!
Has anyone had problems with the buckle tarnishing? I have a brass buckle that is badly tarnishing. And only worn about 10 times. Love the belt but hope this isn't an epidemic issue.

Then can I eat it?
Cool tip!
If you guys would make a belt 1.75 wide and .250 thick or thicker I`d consider as I`d be able to throw a holster and gun on it. This one unfortunately not so much.
I have a belt with the above specs and it is indestructable. Would not mind having another one in a different color.
Desastor
Hey, thanks for the input. We will keep that in mind and see if we can offer it sometime in the future.
Desastor
I would be with you on such a belt.
Am I the only one who hates snaps on belts, and thinks they look and feel cheap? I really, really wish more places would use Chicago screws. I'd happily pay a few bucks more for Chicago screws over snaps. . . particularly because I won't buy any belts using snaps.
This one looks pretty good, too. Ah, well; maybe next time.

I appreciate your reply. I should have been a bit more clear that I don't doubt the quality of your snaps, but even if they're rock solid, they still look and feel a little off to me just because I'm not a fan of snaps. I know some heavy-duty snaps are incredibly durable, and I'm sure yours are great, but I've had *way* more snaps fail on me than Chicago screws, and that's just left a strong bad impression with me.
Combine that with the fact that i Just don't care for the look of them as much, and I don't think I can bring myself to buy a belt with snaps at this point. Other than that it does look great, though. If you guys offer one with Chicago screws, I'm absolutely in for it. ;-)
Thanks again for the response, though. It speaks highly of you and your company that you took the time to make an explanation and a persuasive argument.
I purchased a belt from another Massdrop vendor that used screws, and one of them fell off in the first week. Never found it. I vowed to never buy another until I found more sturdy fasteners. Thanks!
Fantastic belt! It's very well and accurately made and feels sturdy. 5 stars @AmericanBenchCraft

So happy to hear that!

This video is about their dress belt.

@AmericanBenchCraft What punch you guys use for punching hole in three belts.
My waist fluctuates between 38-40 and need two more holes in the belts. I have Everyday, Dress and now ordering Working Man's belt. The length is perfect, just need couple of holes.

Thanks. Size 6 for all three, Dress, Working Man and Everyday or just Working Man?
IvanSpendalot
Yup size 6 for all three.
Hey, if I try and order two, the shipping jumps from 2.75 to 6.75. Is that a mistake?
If I order the size 44 on the current drop does that mean I am getting a 44 inch belt or the size 44 belt that is 50 inches in total length. The description is confusing to me.
Rensek
The size 44 belt is 50 inches from the buckle to the tip of the belt. A size 44 belt is designed to be 44 inches from the buckle to the center sizing hole. Hope that helps clarify. Let us know if you have any other questions.
Can someone who has one of these belts please report back here with a full 7 day in depth analysis with blind trials and 7 way comparisons? OK, just a couple of comments will also do. Cheers
Gorgeous belt. Didn't know cows had skin this thick. Great quality and craftsmanship. Highly recommended!
What type of metal is the buckle? also is the buckle made in the USA?
RonnyRoofus
The gold buckles are solid brass with a stainless steel tongue and the silver buckles are stainless steel. The buckles are not American-made however we do source them from a U.S supplier.
Has anyone received their item? Latest update for me was on 26th june in frankfurt
Hi All - size 38 has been made available on this drop; thank you for your patience!
blouie
The size 38, good ol' days.
Can I change my address after the drop? I won't have an address by the end of the drop but I will well before it ships.
Shagatron
Hi there - please reach out to our Community support team; they can take care of this for you through the Help Center page.
Any measuring guide? Not sure if every belt maker have a standard definition on size. Better be safe than sorry.
avaxis
It's hard to spot but the description suggests one above your usual pant size.

Here you go. Let us know if you have any other questions.
It seems that there's no size 38 available on either color. Is that just an oversight? Think I like the belt, but of course, that's the size I'd like to have.
