We do not have a showroom or store, just our workshop, which is not open to the public. We need 1-3 business days to make your belt. If you are looking for a quick gift, we recommend purchasing a gift card.

+ I haven’t received my order yet. What should I do?

Once orders are shipped, we are not responsible for lost, stolen, delayed or misdelivered packages. Orders placed on our website are shipped via a third-party carrier, and as such risk of loss and title for goods ordered pass onto you upon our delivery to the carrier. If you are having trouble tracking down a shipment, you will need to contact your local post office and/or parcel carriers for assistance. We do not have any additional tracking or shipping information than what is available through the tracking number listed on your shipping confirmation email.

If you are concerned about package loss, consider upgrading your shipping service during checkout.

+ Can I change my shipping information after my order has been placed?

In the event that you need to make changes to your shipping information, please contact us with your order number and a detailed request as soon as possible. If your order has not shipped, we will do our very best to accommodate your request. We cannot make changes to your order after it has shipped.

+ Can I ship an item as a gift?

You have the option to send your purchase as a gift at checkout. You can add a message in the space provided for Additional Info. We will include a card with your message.

+ How do I make an exchange or return?

Instructions for returning or exchanging a belt can be found on our Exchanges & Returns page.


Sizing Questions 

+ How do I order a custom size?

Take a tape measure and wrap it around you where you would normally wear the belt. Select “Custom size” when ordering your belt. Enter your measurement at checkout in the section provided. Write something like, “I measured my waist and it is 37.” We will make a belt to fit that size, with a couple inches of room bigger and smaller.

+ I have a belt that fits perfect. Can you make me an Obscure Belt the same length?

Sure! Take a measurement of your current belt using the diagram below. When you order your new belt, select “Custom size please!” and enter the measurement in the comment section. Write something like, “I measured my current belt using the diagram on your website. The length is 37.” We will make a belt to fit that size, with a couple inches of room bigger and smaller.

+ What size belts can you make?

We can usually make belt sizes up to 48 in our standard leather colors (black, brown, grey rough rider). If you need a longer belt, please contact us before placing your order so we can check our inventory. Limited edition leather colors are only available up to size 42 unless otherwise stated.

+ How do I figure out my belt size?

GENTS

The general rule of thumb is to add two to your pants size (e.g. if you wear a size 32 in jeans, order a size 34 belt). If you are not sure what your size is, try this: while wearing your pants at their normal level on your waist, use a tape measure to get the length around the waistband. If your measurement falls in the middle of one of the ranges listed, order that belt size. If not, select “Custom size” when ordering your belt and enter your measurement during checkout. We will make a belt to fit that size, with a couple inches of room bigger and smaller.

LADIES

The sizes listed give a range of tightest to loosest that the belt can be worn. If you are not sure what your size is, try this: while wearing your pants/dress/sweater, use a tape measure to get the length around where you want to wear the belt. If your measurement falls in the middle of one of the ranges listed, order that belt size. If not, select “Custom size” when ordering your belt and enter your measurement during checkout. We will make a belt to fit that size, with a couple inches of room bigger and smaller.

Repairs & Resizing

+ How can I get a new screw or sizing piece?

You can order replacement screws and sizing pieces here. Be sure to select the correct buckle design and finish from the drop down as parts vary for each design.

+ Something is not working on my belt. Can you fix it?

Yes, we offer repairs on most current designs and belts purchased within the last 4 years. Please contact us to request a repair. The repair is free, but we ask that customers send the belt to us at their cost and pay for return shipping and parts, usually around $15.

Repairs are intended to return your buckle’s mechanism to working order. We do not offer repairs or exchanges for normal wear and tear.

+ I lost a bunch of weight. Can my belt be shortened?

If you would like to have us shorten your belt, please contact us with how much shorter you need the belt. The resizing is free, but we ask that customers send the belt to us at their cost and pay for return shipping, usually around $8. Be sure to consult our sizing charts to determine your new size.

Please note: we cannot shorten Ohm or Excalibur belts. You will need to purchase a leather replacement kit.


Other Questions 

+ Can I buy just the buckle?

No, we do not sell the buckles by themselves. Our buckles have a unique way of attaching and do not work with other belts.

+ Can I buy one belt and multiple leather straps to switch them out weekly?

Yes, it is possible, but we did not design the buckles to be switched often and you do so at your own risk. You can order leather replacement kits here.

+ Can you make me a custom buckle design?

No, we cannot accommodate custom requests at this time and for the foreseeable future.

+ I would like a buckle design that you do not have on your website. How can I get this?

If a design is no longer available on our website that means it is sold out. We only make a limited number of each design, so when it’s gone, its gone for good.

+ Can I get a discount?

The discounts offered online are only available for a specific time period. We occasionally offer special promotions, please sign-up for our newsletter below to stay updated on any sale events.
