BELT SIZE - (Length)

  • To determine your belt size you need to measure a current belt you use (with a similar buckle)  by measuring from the fold back (the fold where your belt buckle snaps into place) To the current hole on your belt that you use. This will determine your size.

KEEPERS  -  (Loops that hold your belt in place after it is buckled)

  • Select how many keepers you would like on your belt style. This is generally determined by the buckle style you want to use. You can remove keepers, but you cannot add them if the belt was not constructed for extra keeper.
  • J.B. Hill Buckles are available for purchase  in Sterling Silver or you can use one of your favorites.
  • If you want to use one of your buckles we ask that you send it to us to insure that we make your belt strap to size.
