Rated 2 out of 5 by Rosann Way Too Big
My husband always wears a 38" belt. After reading the reviews and all the recommendations to order smaller, he insisted it would be ok, because this is what he always wears. Wrong, the reviews were right...WAY TOO BIG!!! Now we are waiting for the 36" to come in.
If LL Bean knows they have a problem with the belt, why don't they fix it????

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1984FXRS Great Belt - Bad Size
This is a very good quality belt which looks like it will last a long time and get better with age. The buckle also appears to be good solid quality as you would expect from LL Bean. The only reason I didn't give this belt a five star rating is the size. I read other reviews saying it ran large so I thought I would order my pants waist size - still too big. I sent it back and ordered one smaller than my pants waist size. You would think a great outfit like LL Bean would read the reviews and make adjustments to their products accordingly, but I guess that would be asking too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYAlan Excellent, but runs large
Excellent belt, excellent quality, but it does run large. I am wearing it now and think it's terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SplitRockFan A Real Belt
Quality construction, durable, suits my taste and use. The width means my pants don't double over at the waist as happens to me with thinner belts. The bronze buckle is the right color for a brown belt, whereas many brown belts in the market have ugly silver buckles. :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by GrandmaOfSix Nice belt for fair price
I bought this buckle for my husband so these are his comments. This is a good belt, looks nice and he likes it. The price is fair. The buckle is sewn on. He would have preferred a buckle that snapped on so he could have changed the buckle. The buckle on the belt is fine, but he would have changed it out with another buckle he has, given the opportunity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhettshopper 1912 Jean Belt
If you are looking for a jean belt, you will not find one better at this price. It is solid quality leather and not stitch out with a backing. The leather is supple and tanned with a rich brown color and stamped "Made in UK". I wear 34 in waist and ordered a 36 in belt and had to punch another hole in order for it to fit. I stacked this belt on top of my other LL Bean belts and it measured 3 inches longer. I will order again, but in the same size as my pants. Overall, exceptional belt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ktool Too big!
The belt was so wide it did not go through the belt loops of the pants I also purchased from LL Bean (the pants, incidentally, are great). The belt was also supposed to be 34 inches, but was at least 43 inches instead. I would have had to put more holes in it just to use it. Otherwise, I like the design and weight of the leather itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BoomEng Soft leather, run very large.
Nice belt made of quality soft leather. Order a size or two smaller than your pant size. I followed the sizing instructions and ordered a 38 since I wear size 37 LL Bean pants. The belt I got would fit a 42 waist at the smallest notch. I was sure it was some kind of mistake, but the CSR assured me it was not, and he was right. I exchanged for a 34, which fits, but I still have plenty of room to grow into it!
