    can you do a 52″ belt ?

    • billkeitel

      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!

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!

    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..

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 !!!

    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.

    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!
