The traditional belt is 1.25” in width, and is finished with full grain, chestnut colored leather. Smathers & Branson belts are 2 inches larger than your pants waist size.
For example, someone who wears a size 36 pant would wear a size 38. When the waist is an odd size, increase the belt size by 3 inches (i.e. a size 33 wears a size 36 belt).
