Well, it's a great belt. My dog wants to eat it, that's my emergency meal though. Guess I'll have it with *LL Beans* tumbleweeds

This is a great belt that has sports great quality and craftsmanship. I have owned it for a year and it barely shows sign of wear. Great belt and looks excellent with all kinds of clothes. Highly recommend.

Well made casual belt but width is a little wider than I anticipated; should have measured. Sizing (length) is correct and style is perfect for casual slacks, jeans, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheboygan Follow Bean's Size Instructions
I read many reviews on these belts and determined that I needed to order the size I would normally buy - a 34 (I have a 32 waist). However, Bean's instructions say to order your normal waist size and they are correct! Now, I have to go through the return process.
For reference, the size 34 belt measures 35 inches from the bar in the buckle to the center hole. In other words, they up-size the belt to account for your pants thickness & whatever shirt you have tucked in. That gives you a range of 33 inches to 37 inches from the size 34 belt from all five holes. Way too big for my 32 inch waist.
Otherwise they are very nice quality- not too stiff and nice rich colors- both the brown and black. The contrast stitching looks great and as one reviewer noted, the width is 1-1/2 inches, not 1-3/8 per Bean's description, and the buckle is 2-1/8 across the width.
I look forward to getting the replacement 32 inch versions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZIPPO2 Light heavyweight
Not as thick or heavily stitched as a couple of heavy belts I have had from some other quality brands. Still a very good belt that will outlast your favorite jeans . Well made and good looking , a great casual everyday belt . My job requires a lot of weight and stress on my belt ,so this belt will probably not be used for work. It will see a lot of use camping , hunting ,and working / lounging around the house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NonGmoHomemaker Very nice looking
Looks beautiful. Well made. But, it is a bit short. It is just long enough for my slender husband's 32" waist. It should be just a bit longer.

He likes it; he wears it with jeans and his business casual slacks; it fits. Bought the size recommended - same as pants waist size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Malorraine Great belt, but a little short
I would have rated this belt a 5, but as others have commented, it's a little on the short side and would not be able to go through the pants belt loop if you needed more room for your waist.
