How do I measure myself for a belt?
modernbeltThe most accurate way to measure yourself for an everyday belt is to measure your current belt from inside the buckle all the way down to the adjustment hole you most often use. The overall length of the belt means absolutely nothing to us, so please, never supply that measurement.

Another way of measuring yourself is to add two inches to the waist size of the pants you currently wear. For example if you wear size 36” Levi’s, then order the size 38” belt.

Our belts are sized to fit, one at a time. The measurement you provide will be the size the belt is made. If it does not fit due to a poor measurement, we do require a 15% return fee.


What if belt I ordered does not fit?
Products which require sizes (belts) will not be exchanged for full value because of an incorrect waist size provided by the customer. It is of the utmost importance to provide us with a correct waist measurement. If you receive your order and a belt does not fit, it can be exchanged for the same belt at a different size. Your exchange is subject to a 15% exchange fee so make sure to measure yourself correctly.

If we produce a product with requires a size (belts) and we are at fault for an incorrect size, we’ll gladly exchange your order for the correct size at no cost to you.


Can I customize my order?
We currently do not offer any kind of personal customization such as names, initials, dates, etc. Any other customization can be requested using the CONTACT form.


Will I be informed when my order has shipped?
