    I would say 5 1/2". But some people have doen 6". If you have your cod peice and top armour you could find out the width of the girth belt by comparing any of your Jango Fett reference pics you might have.
    Thxdad makes girth belts think he does his width of 5 1/2". Depending on how your armour set, you may want to have a width of 5" or 6" though.

    This is one of those measurements that we know. It's 5". Each braid is 1/4" and there are 19 of them. That comes out to 4.75". Add in a little space in between each of them and it comes out to about 5". If you are over 6' tall then you should go higher than 5" but I really wouldn't if you are average height.

    Re: Girth Belt

    I always try to scale my girthbelts to the height of the wearer. Here is the scaling system I use:

    5'5"-5'7"=5" wide
    5'8"-5'9"=5.25" wide
    5'10-5'11"=5.5" wide
    6'-6'1"=5.75 wide
    6'2"+=6" wide

    Basically, I add one more strand for every couple of inches. Hope this can be of some help.

    Re: Girth Belt

    Glad to help. Keep in mind my dimensions are only my opinion, and at times I have even deviated from them due to things like waist circumference, amount of material on hand, and personal preference. Some people lean more towards wanting things to be "screen-size", while others like myself prefer things to be scaled according to the wearer. Either way works.

    Foxbatkllr is correct though with the dimensions he gave regarding the screen used girthbelt, and it serves as a good starting point for anyone.
