What Is An Anson Belt?+
An Anson Belt is a micro-adjustable, hole-less belt. Instead of 5 holes 1" apart as in the case of most belts, an Anson Belt has 30+ options ¼" apart, always giving you the perfect fit. These 30+ sizing increments, or micro-adjustments are enabled due to a ratchet style track system intricately sewn into the back of the strap. The unique Anson buckle has an auto-locking mechanism that catches on the "teeth" of the track system as the strap slides through the buckle. This allows for 30+ precise sizing options always giving you the perfect fit. All Anson Belts come in an extra long length of 56" inches, comfortably fitting up to a 50" waist. If a smaller size is needed, simply follow the instructions included with your order and "trim-to-fit" to the desired length.
What kind of leather do you use?+
In 2015 we transitioned all of our leather belt fronts to premium Full Grain leather (minus the Faux Crocs. and Microfibers). Full Grain leather is the most durable and strongest of leathers. Full Grain comes from the very top layer of the hide, just below the hair, and contains all of the tightly packed grain. This is the highest-grade leather available to us, and even though our cost has increased our prices have remained the same. All of our formal Anson Belt backs are made of genuine leather. Our Vegetable Tanned leathers have a split grain leather backing. The Nylon's, Canvas, and Cloth all feature a microfiber backing for its durability and resiliency to scratching and cracking, as well as being vegan.
What are your buckles made of?+
The base metal of our buckles is a Zinc alloy. That means that it’s mostly Zinc (95%), with 3-4% Aluminum and a mixture of other metals making up the remainder.
Are your buckles interchangeable?+
All Anson buckles and straps of the same size are interchangeable. For example, all 35mm (1.25") buckles and straps are interchangeable with each other, as are the 40mm (1.5") buckles/straps. However, a 35mm buckle/strap is not interchangeable with a 40mm buckle/strap.
Do your buckles contain nickel?+
Yes, just about all of our buckles contain nickel-plating, except for our "nickel free" option that you can find here.
How do you size your Anson Belt?+
Each Anson Belt comes in an extra long length of 56", comfortably fitting up to a 50" waist without having to size. If a smaller size is needed, you can easily "trim-to-fit" any size you need. There will be instructions included with your order showing you exactly how to size your Anson Belt. In a nutshell though, you will just need to follow these easy steps... • Try on your Anson Belt by looping through your belts holes as you would normally wear it. • Measure how much excess leather you will need to trim to accommodate a desired fit. • Remove the belt from your waist, and detach the buckle from the strap. • With a regular pair of scissors, trim the length that you measured from the raw end of the strap that attaches to the buckle. • Re-attach the buckle and try back on around your waist. Repeat if needed. *Note- it’s always best to cut less than you think at first, as you can always trim more if needed!
What is the largest size strap you offer?+
All Anson straps come in a extra long length of 55". This will accommodate a comfortable fit for someone wearing up to a 50" pant size without having to size the strap. If a smaller size is needed you are able to trim to any desired length.
I purchased a Gift Card, how will I receive it?+
All Anson Gift Cards will be emailed to you electronically after checkout. You can either print the email with the gift card code to gift to someone, or just pass along the code itself. If you or your recipient have any questions or trouble with their Gift Cards please contact us as email@example.com.
Are your widths EXACTLY 1.25" and 1.5"?+
No, most factories use the metric system; therefore, the "industry standard" for 1.25" and 1.5" straps are just shy of that mark. Our 1.25" straps are actually 30mm (1.18") Our 1.5" straps are actually 35mm (1.38") We simply say 1.25" and 1.5" because it is more understandable to the customer base that is familiar with the Imperial system rather than Metric.
Do you ship Internationally?+
YES! We have shipped to over 200+ countries all over the world over the years. We offer international shipping via the USPS and UPS. The least expensive option is going to be the USPS and they will use your local postal authority to make the final delivery. That method works surprisingly well and we are always here to help our international customers with receiving their order. You can see the cost of shipping internationally for your country by going through the motions of checking out. The shipping cost will be displayed just before final checkout. The cost of shipping is determined by the weight of the package. If you have any questions or concerns regarding international shipping please don't hesitate to reach out, we're always here to help.
What is the shipping cutoff time?+
Orders placed Monday through Friday (excluding major holidays) before 1:00 Eastern Standard Time will usually ship the same day. Orders placed after 1:00 on Friday through the weekend will normally go out on Monday. During our busiest times of the year (Week leading up to Fathers Day + Black Friday through Christmas Eve) we get orders out as quickly as possible, however, some slight delays are possible.
Do you ever offer discount codes?+
A few years back we decided to do away with discount codes altogether. We opted to offer free shipping on ALL U.S. orders, as well as offer a Gift Box option that essentially gives you a free buckle/strap or 25% off depending how you look at it. We also felt like it just wasn’t fair to our customers that were missing out on the discount, or had just purchased days before the discount.
