    Nov 15, 2009, 7:23 PM - GIRTH belt question #1

    Basic question here, but -

    Say I have a 34 inch waste. How long of a girth belt should I order, considering that the back will be completed with add-on nylon straps or leather?

    Order a 34in girthbelt if that is your waist. In the movie, Fett has 2 black straps that attach the top and bottom portions of the girthbelt. The link below is from TK409's site to show you what I am talking about.

    So the belt is supposed to be kind of "small" which the black straps make up for. So if you order your waist size, the extra bulk of the cod/butt armor will compensate for the extra space needed for those straps. Makes sense? heh

    No problem. Actually, I was looking at this mohair "natural color" girth, also available in brown.

    i just ordered mine from www.marystack.com. they called me the next day to tell me they were out but ordered it and if it was ok if it took a couple of days longer. i said it was alright. took a week in a half, not bad, great costomer service. mohair girth belt is great haven't colored it yet but it was 19.00 dollars which is not bad. i got a size 38 for the girth belt, now my waist is a 32 and i where size 33-34 pants, you would think the belt would be to big, but the girth belt is three inches away from touching. the belt has buckles at both ends. there is no way to connect them together unless you add straps yourself. i intend on putting it over my cod piece so i will probably have around a 6 or 7 inch gap between the buckles. if your waist is 34 (skin measure) i recommend a 40 inch but thats according to marystack sizes.
