How do I fasten a D Ring Belt?
Feed the belt into the loops of your garment- through all the belt loops
Take the opposite end, (without D rings) and feed it through both d rings on the other side of the belt. Pull the end (tail) of the belt over one D ring and under the other and tighten.

What is the difference between the 2 inch and the 1 ½ belts besides a half inch? Will they fit in my belt loops?
We feel the 2 inch belts provide a “funkier” look due to the width and creating more of a “look”. They look particularly great with low rider, boot cut pants but look great with any style jean, of course. The 2 inch belts fit in standard belt loops. The inch and a half is a standard belt width which also adds punch to an outfit, but is less in your face than the 2 inch and fit in most all belt loops.
Are all D Ring style belts “preppy?”
The fabric creates the “look”. Although D Ring belts originally were donned by the country club set in the 1970s, we have brought it back with a fresh new look that will compliment all styles.

Why do you make only D Ring Belts?
We love the versatility and the functionality of the D Ring belt! The D rings are great because there are no pre-sized grommets in the belt limiting how high or low you can wear it or what you can wear it with. Since we have done extensive work to find the right weight webbing and D Ring, the tail of the belt lays flat immediately. We feel the simplicity of the D Ring closure is versatile, elegant, and casual all at the same time.
