Size up 2-4"
So 30" waist equals 32-34" belt
Thanks

^ No problem. I went up 4" on mine and punched an extra hole. Think sizing up 2" would've probably been fine also.

Sounds like you got the wrong size if you had to punch an extra hole no?

A bit of shameless self promo, but we make very nice English leather belts, using deadstock brass buckles which were also made here in the UK.

We have a new 6mm thick black leather aswell, which is pretty much indestructable.

Ha, I guess Oops
Just had a look at the belt and it looks like I'm mostly using the first hole (not the extra one I punched) I hate being on the last one or two holes though and not having "enough" overlap, but that might just be me…
Anyway I think the general consensus is size up 2-4"
I sized up nearer 5" which is probably the limit/maybe more than you should!

Where the cheapest place to get Anderson's belts online? After one in woven navy fabric, not sure whether to get with contrast leather (brown) or navy leather

Will a leather belt stretch much/ at all? I'm eyeing up a Nonnative one and not sure which size to go for as measurements are suggesting that a size 1 will fit me on the last hole but if I put on any weight, it'll be too small and at £200+, that's not really an option.

Surely get a bespoke belt made up if you're spending that kinda wedge.

Not sure that it matters now anyway, checked measurements on Coverchord and it looks like it will be fine.

Go on then… Anderson's prices have gone up to the point I can't stomach it. Whats the alternative these days? Ideally something leather, braided…

I got something identical to this in Morocco for a fiver. Love the elasticity so I don't have to adjust anything after meal times.
