I am a size 8 tall pants and ordered the size Large belt. Size chart tells me to order a Medium, but I used my better judgement. I am happy with the size and the belt fits the way I like it. Out of the 5 holes, I have one hole I can make it smaller, and 3 holes to make it bigger. The tail fits in my loops nice.
Quality is great, Beautiful leather with triple line stitching. The width is 1 3/8” and the same as a men’s belt width. It doesn’t stick out . Very happy.
The belt comes in black and brown, supposedly. this one has brown on inside, tan is on outside. almost looks like it is backwards. the stem or pin that goes in holes on belt seems to be really light. almost feels like its about to break.
This would've been my third Detroit belt, I loved the first two and finally wore them out, but this one was different. It is not brown, more like tan, and had a suede like finish. It's also smaller than the last one. It's going back tomorrow and I have to pay the return shipping for something Carhartt sold that was not as described. Not the best experience but I still love my other Carhartt gear.
I bought this as a replacement to the Detroit belt I’ve been wearing for almost 10 years. Was disappointed that the color is more of a tan, light colored casual look. It’s a little too business-casual for me . I’m sure someone would like it, but I will return it .
I purchased the black belt back in 2010 at an Outlet store on sale. I use it almost every day. I'm not sure why it has so many bad reviews. It is a belt. It did what it was supposed to do, keep my pants up. I would definitely purchase it again.
I have had two previous belts identical to this one, except that the leather on this new one seems softer. (I'm not sure whether I like this or not because I use it as a work belt, not a dressy belt.) I'll know more about it after wearing it a while.
Great belt that is not as stiff as they were a few years ago
I was a little disappointed in the belt. I purchased one a few years ago and wore it out. Needed another. This time, the leather is much less durable. It is definitely not as stiff as the previous. It may fool me but time will tell. Other than that, great belt.
The belt looks good and feels good when you first put it on. After about 10 minutes it stretches and you have to go up a notch for the same fit. After adding 4 extra notches in less than an hour due to the stretching I gave up. It would be fine if you were wearing it for looks alone but if you need it to actually hold your pants up, Good Luck!
