Sizing Information – How to Measure your Belt

Each clothing company sizes their products differently. The belt or pants size that “has always worked for you” may not translate accurately to our sizing system. Please follow these instructions carefully before you order!

If the belt you are measuring doesn’t fit you, then measure from the very tip of the metal buckle to the place where you wish there was a hole. Order that size or a size larger if your measurement falls between sizes.

    Great belt would recommend!

  2. Eric Sjostrom

    I have multiple items from The Buffalo Billfold Company. Everything is of the highest quality. My belt is very well made and wearing extremely well. It will definitely last a very long time. In an age of declining quality, The Buffalo Billfold Company offers excellent value and is 5-Star all the way!

  3. Len (verified owner)

    I have begun purchasing my favorite bison belts as gifts. It seems that with aging, they develop a patina and my older belts look better rather than wearing out. And so the offered Buffalo Leather belt packages are gifts that last a long time and are used.

  4. Mark (verified owner)

    Excellent belt love the look love the quality!

  5. Matthew Hardin (verified owner)

    Very nice quality, tough and sturdy too. I look forward to wearing this belt for many years.

  6. Jonathan (verified owner)

    Nicely made belt, fairly priced for the lifetime I expect to get from my purchase. Please read the sizing guide as they were spot on for length. What a beautiful full grain pattern on this unique leather.

  7. Lindy Wine (verified owner)

    My son was so impressed with the belt I picked out for his father’s b’day that he wanted one too. My son was only here for a week and his belt arrived before he had to leave. This s a great small business—I already have 3 wonderful bags and a change wallet that I keep my credit cards in.

  8. Scott Jurista (verified owner)

    I always try to support American businesses so I ordered one of the belts using the measurement instructions they provided.
    The belt fits well and is made by American craftsmen and/or women using American bison leather. Highly recommend.

  9. Scott (verified owner)

    I support American businesses as much as possible and needed a belt for general use. Before ordering I called Buffalo Billfold and asked if the one I wanted was available. BB uses American bison leather and American employees to make their leather goods. I measured another belt according to the instructions on the website and it fits perfectly.
    Highly recommend.

  10. Barry Simmons (verified owner)

    Excellent quality.

  11. Carol Curtis (verified owner)

    Absolutely one of the best wallets I ever gave as a gift and the belt is excellent quality, I had to buy another belt on Christmas day to keep the troops happy.

  12. Sammy (verified owner)

    8-9 years ago I bought a Buffalo bifold wallet for my husband. It still looks great! Since then I have purchased belts for him and my sons. The quality is amazing!

  13. Brendan Smith (verified owner)

    Excellent quality United States made product. Very happy. If I could give 10 stars I would. I’m hooked on their products !!!

  14. Shabir Ahmed

    Thank you for a great product. My son ordered this belt for me and I just received it this morning. This looks and feels far better than any other belt I have used previously. The quality is amazing and I am sure I will be using it for many years to come. Thank you from Glasgow, Scotland.

  15. Justin Johnson (verified owner)

    Great quality! Thick and sturdy but also pliable. Only thing I’m unsure of is the buckle. Seems a bit small but I think it’ll grow on me. I appreciate American made hand crafted goods and will gladly give my business to them.

  16. THEODORE AUSTIN (verified owner)

    So far so good! What I was impressed with was you guys honoring your sale after I fat fingered the online purchase and couldn’t find where to apply the discount! It was much appreciated. I have worn Filson belts for ever. I used to sell their products at a place I used to work at in Alaska. It used to be good stuff. Now it’s just expensive stuff and the belts , still decent, last me about two years. Now, I bought the belt from you guys, and it is 1 1/2 times as thick as a Filson belt. I have only had it a month but it still feels substantial and solid. I think I have found the next place to buy my belts and other goodies. The first product I purchased from you was a wallet. Still wearing like iron. Keep on making good stuff and I will keep on buying it from you. Thank you.

  17. Rhonda Tank

    I purchased a Buffalo Belt for my husband. He says it is the best belt he has ever owned. I was not sure what size to order so I measured his old belt exactly as the guide said. I received the perfect fit belt! Thank you so much! BTW, he’s getting a billfold for Christmas too!

  18. Scott (verified owner)

    I purchased the brown leather belt and absolutely love it. The quality and workmanship are great. I will definitely buy from them again.

  19. Martin Hanley (verified owner)

    I visited the Buffalo Billfold Co booth at last year’s Art Fair in Tubac, AZ and purchased a gun sling to use as a ukulele shoulder strap. I was very pleased with the strap so I ordered a belt on-line and say that I am equally pleased with the quality of their belt. It is the right width and very well made, and has now become the belt I wear daily. I plan to order another belt in a different color soon.

  20. Jackson Hall

    I purchased a new belt from Buffalo Billfold Co. It is my second Buffalo Billfold product. I purchased a wallet a number of years ago, and it’s going strong, looks great. Love the belt. It’s simple, strong, and feels great to the touch.

  21. Travis D. (verified owner)

    Bought this belt a size too small and The Buffalo Billfold Company exchanged it for free with no hassle. Great product.

  22. Nate Erpestad (verified owner)

    The quality of Bill’s products is superb – this belt is yet another example. The only reason you will need to buy another one is if you lose it (or go for the other colors!).

  23. J Hyland (verified owner)

    I wanted a belt that was durable and stylish. I could not have been more pleased when my new belt arrived. The extra care taken to pack the belt for shipping shows the craftsmanship of the company. It was important to find a belt Made in the USA that was from a small business. I would highly recommend this belt to anyone who wants to have years of use.

  24. Jonathan Slaughter (verified owner)

    Sturdy leather belt that should last for decades. Also unique and nice to support herds of native American bison. A great purchase.

  25. Mark Tulga (verified owner)

    I love my new belt from Buffalo Billfold Company! The leather is not thin and cheap! The leather is a little thicker, the feel of the leather is soft to the touch and soft and comfortable to wear, the appearance of the leather has a beautiful grain pattern, and one thing I appreciate is the holes are a little closer together giving you a more true and comfortable fit around your waist. I hardly notice that I am wearing it. I now wear it everyday and wish I had one in every color. So nice to see this kind of quality made in USA. Will probably provide decades of wear.

  26. Sue Shinbori (verified owner)

    I purchased my 1st belt from The Buffalo Billfold Company at the gift store in the middle of Custer State Park in South Dakota. I wear it almost every day and absolutely love it. The quality is Incredible! My daughter wanted a new belt so I wasn’t sure where to fine her one like mine but thankfully your logo was on the belt which led me to the website. She now has her own and can quit taking mine! lol She loves it! I cannot wait to order more products from The Buffalo Billfold Company! I will be back again and again! Thank you so much and will highly recommend to all my friends!

  27. Michael (verified owner)

    Great real leather belt! Just what I was looking for but could not find in any dept store at the mall! Just break it in, plus an American made product, better yet!

  28. Steve Smith (verified owner)

    I have purchased a belt and a wallet from this company and have been very pleased with my purchases. The belt is the second item and it just has a much different look from other belts I have bought in the past. The overall workmanship is superb, the grain of the leather is gorgeous and the fit is just right. My only wish is that the belt loop should be sewn and not stapled, I may bring it to a shoe repair shop and have it sewn because this otherwise looks and feels like a belt I will use for many years. As to my tri-fold wallet it’s first rate and after having it for a year it has broken in nicely and looks beautiful.

  29. TC (verified owner)

    Great looking, durable leather belts. Best of all, Made in USA!!

  30. Susan Jones (verified owner)

    I had ordered an Ariat belt from Amazon for more money than the Buffalo Belt. When I received it, it was cheap thin leather, so I returned it and started a search for a good leather belt. My husband found your website, so I decided to order one. I could not be happier. It is made from real leather, looks nice and fits well. I love my new belt. In the future, if I need another belt, I will be ordering from you.

  31. GREGORY BRADBURN (verified owner)

    I now have 2 of these belts (different colors). They are great! You just have to order the length 2″ longer than a regular (ie, WalMart) belt.

  32. Derek Anderson (verified owner)

    Excellent quality, fast shipping. Couldn’t be happier with the product and customer experience. Will definitely order again. And best of all, Made in the USA!!

  33. Gary Ohrt (verified owner)

    Very impressed with the quality of my new belt. Size was perfect since I followed your instructions. Fast service also. I gave your business card to a friend that I showed it to. Also showed her my billfold I have carried every day for years . She was impressed that it looked like new and felt so soft. Thought it would be a good gift to order for her husband. I expect the the same great service from my belt. We still talk about how nice we were treated when we visited your store a few years back. Thank you for great made in America products.

  34. Wohali (verified owner)

    Very happy with belt. Made of sturdy quality leather. Following instructions for measuring my old belt resulted in a correct size size. I have received many complements on how nice the belt looks. Easy ordering process and quickly arrived.

  35. Larry H. (verified owner)

    Very happy with my belt – quality construction and fast shipping. I had ordered one previously and followed the measuring directions video, but the belt turned out to be too small. I thought it would stretch in time but it did not. This belt I ordered 2 inches larger than the previous one for it to fit correctly.

  36. Tom W (verified owner)

    This belt was about my 5th buffalo billfold co order over the past 5 years and it is as good of quality as everything else of theirs I own. Great thick buffalo hide, neat color, high quality buckle – all good!! I ordered the wrong size (needed one bigger than normal due to their measuring method), and the replacement came very quickly! Nice!

  37. Don T. (verified owner)

    These are my second and third belts from Buffalo Billfold and they are beautiful to see and easy to wear. I really like the russet red belt. Other companies charge the same price for machine made belts from abroad and don’t deliver the quality of these belts. Just check the reviews for competitors. Also I followed the sizing directions and the fit is excellent. I also have one of their billfolds and it’s still good looking after about 8 years of daily use. Both of my sons also use that billfold.

  38. Kelly Kirk (verified owner)

    Found this company at a random event. We bet the owners that my husband could wear out this buffalo wallet… it’s been years and he has NOT wore it out!!! Now, my hubby is working on how many years the belts will hold up! Excellent product and durability, even though my husband works with machines and oil every day!!!

  39. Sean K. (verified owner)

    Over time– I have ordered two belts, a billfold, a checkbook cover. I have always been impressed with the quality. Further, the service provided is amazing.

  40. Matt N (verified owner)

    A solidly made belt. I look forward to wearing this belt for many years to come. Great product!

  41. Rob T. (verified owner)

    I ordered the brown belt for myself for Christmas and the body of the belt looks good but I’m disappointed that the loop is held together with only a staple. Really, a staple? Great, now I’ll have to sew it together like it should have been made.

  42. Dan D, Everetts /Harrisburg S.D.

    can you do a 52″ belt ?

    • Bill

      Hey Dan,
      We’ve tried to do longer belts out of Bison hide before, however the Bison hide begins to get a bit stretchier as we cut lengths longer than 46 inches. That means we end up with a Bison belt that’s stretchier. And in terms of quality control, we don’t allow products that won’t age well in our shop. So we’ve decided to not do belts longer than 46 inches. On occasion we can get a larger hide in where we can cut a 48″ belt but it’s not common, and in those cases, we sell them in our brick and mortar store or at the art fairs we attend as it doesn’t make sense to put it in our online shop where we wouldn’t be able to keep it in stock.
      This probably isn’t the outcome you were looking for, but we hope you understand!

    Great product. I have ordered belts for all of the men in my family! I have two purses and a coin purse. Great for gifts. I love to support this wonderful company. Great people and excellent service!

  44. Kaycee Sina (verified owner)

    Not only is the belt of great quality but so was the service I received from Bill. I ordered the wrong size and he stayed late just so I could exchange it. The size seems to run a little smaller than other belts, just a heads up. But you can’t get this kind of service and product anywhere else in today’s world.

  45. Pete at the Shack (verified owner)

    Have had these two belts for a month or so and they are really nice. Sizing is accurate and the Buffalo hide leather is superb. I had bought a wallet from you around 2003 and still abuse it every day and it just won’t wear out.
    Great products!!

  46. philinnatjac (verified owner)

    Love my Buffalo Leather belts! Bought a brown one. Loved it so much I bought a black. Just ordered one for my son too. I first learned about Buffalo Billfold Company when I received a Buffalo Leather Three Fold Wallet as a gift. Wow! It’s the softest billfold I’ve ever owned. And it wears like steel. After several years of constant use, it’s developing a nice patina – can’t wait to see how it develops. As for the belts, I expect I’ll be wearing them for many years to come. I’ll come back in a few years and let you know for sure. But given how the thin, soft leather of my wallet is wearing, I can’t see how the thick soft leather of the belts won’t last for many, many years.

  47. Dave Morris (verified owner)

    I have been wearing belts all my life and have worn out quite a few. The belts made from bison just don’t seem to wear, at all, and always look new. My only regret is losing one. I wear these belts wherever I go and they always look great. Don’t hesitate to purchase these belts, just follow the instructions on sizing and you will be well pleased for years, or even decades to come. I also purchased a bison wallet as I was tired of pulling my wallet out and looking like I couldn’t afford a hamburger. The bison wallet just doesn’t wear, fade or even get marked up – it’s simply amazing!

  48. Al (verified owner)

    I bought a Buffalo Billfold wallet about 10 years ago and it looks almost new, so I thought I would try a belt. The belt is good looking and sturdy. Looks like it will never wear out. When I put it on before going out to work in the yard my wife told me it looked to good for yard work. So I would say this is a great all purpose belt, very reasonably priced considering its high quality..

  49. Noah (verified owner)

    I use my brown buffalo leather belt so much that I decided to get a Buffalo Billfold black leather belt too! Excellent quality leather belts as usual. You just can’t beat full grain leather belts. These belts last SO long. I wrote a review for my brown belt about 2 years ago, so I’ve now been using that one for over 12 years. In the past 2 years it’s strength and durability hasn’t changed. It’s still in great condition and the belts patina has just gotten better and better. And that’s saying something. You don’t wear the same jeans, casual, or dress pants every day, but do wear the belt, sometimes day after day. It gets so much use. Other name brand belts I’ve had prior to my Buffalo Billfold Company belt are now “fossils.”

    The other thing I should mention is that the BBC agonizes over which is the best buckle to use. They have chosen an amazing buckle to use with their belts. It might look like it’s standard and fits in with the style of the belt, but this buckle was chosen for it’s strength. I’ve had belts where the metal quality wasn’t good, and those buckles fell apart after a few years of use. The metal just degraded and broke. But Buffalo Billfold Companies belt buckles are super tough and made with really high quality metal. I can happily say that the belt buckle I got over 12 years ago is indistinguishable from the new buckle that arrived in the mail a few weeks ago.

    Overall, I’m again super happy with my purchase and will be looking for an opportunity to give one of these leather belts (or billfold, wallet, or purse) as a gift! Shipping was lightening fast too. I think I got my belt 1.5 days after I ordered it with the standard ground shipping option.

  50. Jeff (verified owner)

    Quality is second to none. Best belt I have ever owned. Leather is soft and thick and great workmanship. I agree with a previous review that I would add an inch to the measurement

  51. Darryl Goetz

    I bought my leather belt 3 years ago at the Uptown Art Fair in Minneapolis. I was extremely disappointed that this booth was not at the 2017 Art Fair. I wore my belt every day, including dress and casual, and after three years of use, it still looked like new. Then this weekend, when going through TSA at Phoenix Airport, I had to take it off and forgot to put it back on, and only discovered that I did not have it when at the gate. I ran back to the “TSA Check In”, and of course they did not have it in lost and found. I was crushed and felt all was lost; however, today, with the help of the Uptown Art Fair office, I found the website! Now I can order a new belt, and probably even get two! I love the leather, the color, and love the buckle – the buckle is the perfect size – large enough, yet not obtrusive! Thank you!

  52. Ben

    Beautifully handmade belt and the quality is so much better than any store brand I’ve purchased. Looking forward to wearing it for years to come.

  53. Lisa S. (verified owner)

    Bought both a belt for my husband and a money clip for my son as Christmas presents. Big hits on both counts. The leather is beautiful and the craftsmanship terrific. The Russet Red is a nice unique color (rather than the standard brown or black.) The video to establish the correct length is spot on.

  54. Sean Collins

    I love these belts – I have a black and a brown one. Nice thick leather, great hand crafted quality. I wear one of these almost every day and they hold up great.

  55. Gmd (verified owner)

    A really nice belt. The inside of the belt is a suede texture which keeps it from sliding around. After wearing for a while, it slightly stretches about half and adjustment hole. I watched the video on how to size the belt and would recommend adding one inch. It fit but was towards the short side. I would rather have a little room to grow, if you know what I mean.

  56. Craig (verified owner)

    I have a tri-fold wallet that I bought a few years ago and has held up flawlessly and I would expect the same from the belt

  57. David (verified owner)

    What an awesome belt. I have the tri-fold wallet from these guys which I absolutely love. I ordered the brown and black belts from them as well. I love these belts. They are very high quality, thick gorgeous belts. I love that these are made out of buffalo and how well they are made. I could not be happier. Thank you Buffalo Billfold Company !!!

  58. Stephanie Blue (verified owner)

    My husband loves this new belt. Great quality and comfortable to wear. I appreciated the video and information on how to measure for your belt. It made ordering easier and the belt fits perfectly. Thanks for your great products.

  59. John Menard (verified owner)

    Excellent quality! I bought a brown belt for my wife and she likes it. It is not too wide that it won’t work with ladies jeans. The video is excellent on how to measure. The belt size is the distance to the middle hole. The quality is fantastic and very heavy duty. I travel through Worthington sometimes for work so I will stop in to get a belt for myself next time. I found your website searching google for “made in USA belt” and was pleased to find something made so local to me. I live near Albert Lea so only a couple hours drive.

    This is something that I wasn’t sure about that I can clarify for others.

    There are 5 holes with about 3/4″ spacing with the middle one being at the belt size. For example 32″ belt has holes at 30.5, 31.25, 32, 32.75, and 33.5″.

    Watch the sizing video to measure a belt you have already. I wear 30-or 32″ waist pants and the 32″ belt for my wife won’t fit me even on the largest hole, my belt actually measures 35″ so I would buy a 36″ belt.

    Bought 2 belts back in 1976 – 40 yrs ago!! After used daily for some years, needed to secure a swing for the kids when they were babies outside. It lasted for years as a strap. Still have & use the other belt. About 5 yrs ago, daughter saw it in the draw, so excited told her she could have it! She still uses it.
    Its the last belt you will need to buy!!
    My sister just told me she bought a belt for her husband ( usually replaced his belt every 3 months). Last 5 years, he used it daily, still in great shape. Same time she bought her adult son a belt, 5 yrs later same great belt. Now my husband & son mentioned they needed new belts. She told me why would you buy a leather belt any where else? Just called to get their sizes. (When I’m back visiting I love to go into the store. Never seen a shop anywhere else like this, make leather goods in front of you. And, feels like you going into someones home.) …..

    I may be biased, because I am the son of the owners, but I still want to write this review. Whatever my bias, I have grown up watching the work my parents do in their store. They are people that care deeply about their employees and providing the best products they can to their customers. Growing up, I had a variety of belts, including one of theirs. As time passed, these other “name brand” belts slowly began to fall apart. The stitching on these other name brand belts would start to tear, the buckles would break or the belt would generally wear quickly. However, the Buffalo Billfold Company’s Buffalo Leather Belt only got better with age. The buckle is solid and the belt is stitched well. The leather develops a character of it’s own and looks amazing. I now have kids and have already passed one belt onto my eldest son. I have no doubt it will be able to last him until he outgrows it. Other belts I’ve had in my adult life have lasted over 10 years now and they’re still going strong. I have to conclude that there is a new “name brand” belt in town, and it’s made by the Buffalo Billfold Company.

  62. Dean (verified owner)

    I have used the brown Buffalo Leather Belt from the Buffalo Billfold Company for over 10 years. By far, my favorite brown belt. I just ordered another brown (now, I have a good and an everyday belt) AND a black belt! Extremely durable and great looking! Well worth the money! Thank you!
