i just got mine on saturday from www.completeequestrian.com and i ordered a 36", i'm about a 34" waist and in my street clothes i have about 6" of space between the buckles. so, i guess they run a little smaller than their size.
I'm still a bit vexed by the whole "what size should I buy?" issue. I have a 38 inch waist, 40 inch for a super comfortable pair of pants. I planned on buying from completeequestrian.com, but I'm not certain which size to order. I'd hate to have to ship one back and pay more shipping charges than I have to, I'm sure you can relate...It'd be super convenient if we could somehow create a size chart, helping you match up which belt you should order for your particular waist size. Could anyone lend a hand?
They shrink but mine didn't shrink to much at all. I bought a size 50 because I didn't know how much it would when I got done dying it. I would say that it is probably a 48 or 46 size right now. I have yet to attach anything so that I can close it in the back at the gap.
Confusing, confusing, confusing...It seems some stretch where others didn't. Would that have something to do with the difference between mohair and synthetic materials I assume? The one I was looking at is mohair, so I guess I can order one a couple sizes larger, then dye it resulting in shrinkage, so then I guess I can string it between two boards, stretching it until it's about right then. Unless anyone can shed more light on the subject for me...
