It is not possible to order odd numbered belts, i.e., 35, 37, etc.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BELT SIZE
Note: Tab style belts come in even sizes and are measured from the end of the buckle prong to the middle hole on the leather tab. Our use of the term 'size' refers to the measurement of the belt taken from the middle of 5 holes and includes the amount added by the buckle to the belt's effective length.
To establish the correct size of your new tab style belt you may use any of the following methods:
Measure a belt that you already have. Lay out the belt and measure the distance from the hole at which you wear it to where that hole will sit on the tongue or prong of the buckle when fastened. This establishes the optimum size and will be the middle hole of your new belt. Add 2" to this number for your belt size.
Or, if ordering by pant size, add two inches to pant size (which refers to waist measurement) to allow for the fact that the belt goes over clothing. Most commonly, a person who thinks of himself as a size 36 for trousers will be a size 38 in our belt.
