Some information about belts
How our buckles fasten to the belt.
Belt makers: Please see our loop-to-pin measurements at the bottom of this page.
How to adjust the loop if your belt is too thick.
Belts are either full-grain leather (one layer) or laminated (several layers glued or sewn together). A quality full-grain leather belt is the best choice. All our buckles are sized for a double thickness of full grain leather to pass under the loop.
Exotic leathers are usually laminated. Laminated belts also often have filler and can be thicker. Sometimes a very thick laminated belt will not fit under our belt loop.
What width is your belt? All of our belt loops are 1", 1-1/4", or 1-1/2" NOTHING ELSE! (a few extra large buckles may have a 1-3/4" loop). Measure the inside of the belt loop -NO metal, and pick the closest size listed above.

Common Questions about belts:
Q: Can I put my small buckle on a wider belt?
A: Yes, but you will need to purchase a tapered belt. Contact Aspen Sheepskin & Leather or Harvest Leather.
Q: Can I put my large buckle on a narrower belt?
A: Yes, but it will tilt. You can send your buckle back to us and have a centering pin soldered to the loop which will eliminate tilting.
The following are approximate measurements from the loop to the center of the pin:
