Can't you resize the belt or punch another hole? Should be possible, no?

I am on the last hole and the end of the belt is so long now that I have to shift the whole buckle as far right as my belt loop allows to compensate... And it is still annoyingly long. It is just to big.  :( I will post pictures tomorrow if I have a chance.

LandoCal, return it boy ! It ain't worth having something expensive and dear that doesn't fit. A too big belt is just all wrong. I thought long and hard about just suffering (pulling a "Simon626-LA" ) through my recently returned SuperBlack Bootcut (IH 9461) -- which would have been hard considering I could not even button the 2nd-to-top-button...but maybe I could have had someone else do it for me...the point is, if somethin' doesn't feel right, it's wrong - -send it back.

For those that are interested in belt buckles this guy is in Austin and makes some incredible glass buckles.  They don't break easily fwiw I have 2 and they have held up very well.  He does custom work too, check him out.

Dchill, I'd be interested in a photo of the belt itself too.   G

I actually use my own tanner belt, the straps he uses are average at best.  I do have one that I want to sell so when I do post pics if you like it, I'll hook you up.

Think I could mod an IH belt to work?

oh yeah for sure, e-mail him with the width of the belt and he can apply the appropriate hardware to the actual buckle.  Plus if you like a design of a buckle but would rather have it in a different color, he can do that too.  He can also do it in a glossy or flat finish.

Shubs, I was talking about my DB Belt being to big. My new IHB-03 fits perfectly. The DB used to fit perfectly but apparently I have lost some weight since I bought it or may have worn it a bit lower when I originally got it...
