Determining Belt Length
Belt Length is calculated to the center of the 6 pairs of holes which are 7/8" apart.
Remember: It's better to have a belt slightly longer than you need, than one too short.
One reason, aside from the possibility of putting on weight, is that it keeps open the option of wearing your Defense Belt over a jacket.
FITTING USING a PERSON'S WORN BELT and TAPE MEASURE
This is perhaps the most accurate method either for oneself, or for a surprise present.
Measure the length of a currently worn belt
FROM: where the prong crosses the buckle;
TO: the most currently used hole.
If in doubt, go slightly larger, not smaller you can always take the belt in.
FITTING USING a PERSON'S WAIST and TAPE MEASURE
With a cloth tape, measure around your waist where you wear your belt. If in doubt, it is better to be a bit too long than a bit too short.
