Rated 4 out of 5áby 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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby passgaser Super belt with character .
I will enjoy this belt once I get the correct size . the size is my mistake for reading the reviews which have guided me well in the past about item sizing . it could be that Bean read them too or those commenting were a bit off as to their size . I may eat my words if my new belt is too small . time will tell . bean has never let me down . thank You for that.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LongstandingLLBeanie Durable and stylish belt
My husband is rough on his belts. He is picky about the appearance of his belts (neither too casual nor too dressy with no brassy look). He loves the styling, fit and durability of the Men's Katahdin Iron Works Belt. He recently lost a few pounds and found himself at the last notch with a loose fit, so he immediately asked me to order the same belt in a smaller size. We were relieved to receive the exact belt he wanted with no unwanted modifications. This belt is a winner!

Rated 4 out of 5áby dunebuggy Serviceable, well-constructed, good looking.
Just bought this belt and I expect it to last for years! Very well constructed - tough as nails leather - yet neat and good looking. Can be worn with work pants and casually with jeans. Stitching enhances the look, and the brass buckle adds class. Recommend buying a size larger than pants waist size.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HotDogJohnny Great Belt
Well made, great looking and plan to own all colors available. Note I am a 34" waist and ordered a 36" at the advice of a previous review. Even with the one size larger, I am still only on the second hole so you could easily order up two sizes. Heavy duty buckle, stitching and great looking leather makes this a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Pinetreebob Terrific belt!
I really like this Katahdin Iron Works belt. The brown leather is very handsome and the contrasting stitching looks great without being too fancy. It is a substantial belt and is 1-1/2" inches wide and not 1-3/8" as stated in the item description. The buckle is a heavy duty brass, looks great and it appears to be built to last. The KIW belt is perfect for blue jeans but works with chinos and similar "dressier" pants so long as the belt loops will take a 1-1/2" wide belt.
Other reviewers kept exclaiming how thick the leather was and I was expecting the belt to be this slab of leather that would require a break in period. It is nothing like that and while I have had thicker belts, the KIW belt is still a beefy belt. Even so, it really is pretty supple and like most Bean products VERY comfortable out of the box. I put it on and soon forgot I had it on.
When sizing the belt follow the advise of other reviewers and order the belt 2" bigger than your pant size. I wear size 36" jeans and the 38" KIW belt is perfect with room for expansion during Thanksgiving weekend or cinching up if you lose weight. I expect this belt to last me many years.
