Multi-colored burgees on a light blue background ribbon stitched to navy cotton belt webbing.
Belt measures 1.25" wide. MADE IN THE USA!
ABOUT YACHT CLUB BURGEES:
Members belonging to a yacht club or sailing organization may fly their club's unique burgee both while underway and at anchor (however, not while racing). Sailing vessels may fly the burgee from the main masthead or from a lanyard under the starboard spreader on the mast. Power boats fly the burgee off a short staff on the bow.
Traditionally, the first time a member of one club visits another, there is an exchange of burgees. Exchanged burgees are then often displayed on the premises of each, such as in a club office or bar. Anyone want to exchange belts?
In stock sizes are available from 32 to 48 in even sizes at our mid-coast Maine showroom and ready for shipment through this webstore.
Custom order sizes from 20 to 30 and larger sizes over 48 are also available, but expect up to two weeks for the belt to be made and shipped to you. Sizes 50 and up add $2.00 to the base cost. It is not possible to order odd numbered belts, i.e., 35, 37, etc. Custom order sizes are NOT returnable.
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 estimate 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. Subtract 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. Given the different ways people wear pants today, this may not be the most accurate method.
