Notes on the leather: The bridle leather I use is thicker and more stiff than your traditional leather belt (8/10 oz leather is around 3-4mm thick) and will require a break in period. The belt will be "difficult" to get off at first but will begin to break in nicely after several wears. The Lo Stivale Veg Tan Steerhide is 7/8 oz thick).
Click hereto see a graphic on how to measure your belt size. Determine your belt size by measuring from the end of your belt (the end of the leather near the buckle but not including the buckle) and your most commonly used hole. This will be your belt size. Generally 2 - 3 inches larger than your pant size. For example, I wear a size 34" pants and have a 37" belt. When it doubt, add 1/2" to the size you think you need.
