72 Smalldive Leather Belts sizing and resizing

If you can, always hang the belt or keep belt loosely rolled. Clean belt with micro-fiber cloth before keeping it stored.

Resizing your belt

How do I choose my belt size based on waist size

A good guide is to add 2 inches to your waist length / hip length.  For example, waist length is 28”, then the desired belt length is 30”

On 72 Smalldive belt sizing  - there are four numbers XX” (XXcm) / YY” (XXcm)

  • The XX =  Length from belt from initial to middle hole, excluding buckle
  • The YY =  Full length of the belt

If the belt is to be worn on the waist, a good fit for a waist of 30” would be Size S 31 ½” (80cm)/37 ½” (95cm)95. This fit should give you a few notches allowance. 

Tools needed to resize a belt

To resize a belt the tools needed are

  • A hole puncher for leather crafting
