Belt Terms

For Belts ordered "Without buckle" Measure your belt from here, to the hole you use.
Belt center hole measurements
           For belts ordered "With a buckle" measure your belt from here, to the hole you use.

Why are there 2 different places to measure from?1 The difference between the two measuring points is the length of the buckle. If you are going to use a buckle that you have, I don't know how long it is, so I can only measure from where the belt folds around the buckle. You have to determine how much to subtract from the "with a buckle" dimension to determine where the fold will be. When I make a belt using a buckle I have, I can determine where the fold will be.

What does the "Finish" select if I don't order a buckle from you?
  It selects the color of the Chicago Screws. Nickel is used with Silver buckles.

What's the deal with the "If No Buckle" choices?
  If you are ordering a buckle from me, forget about them. I know what to do. If you are going to use a buckle that you have, like a flat silver buckle that has a prong on the back, you don't need the tongue slot. With that type of buckle the keeper loop can just get in the way or make you have to wear the belt with the buckle off center and you may not want it. Some poorly designed flat buckles have a folding rectangular  attachment  point that extends past the end of the buckle. They need the keeper loop. End bar buckles like the #1 buckle shown in the picture need the keeper loop. Center bar buckles like the # 2,3,4 and 5 buckles do not use a keeper loop but need the tongue slot.
