The concept of micro-adjustable belts has been around for ages. Yet somehow, most people, including us, were unfamiliar with the benefits: perfect fit, mix-and-match buckles, easily adjusted, no holes to show wear or creases over time.
When we did finally discover this innovation we decided we needed to make this belt available for everyday fashion and to consumers like you. It is our goal to make sure that every man knows that he no longer has to hassle with the limitations of five holes.
There is a better belt—an Anson Belt. Read our story below to learn more about our unique first experience with what would become Anson Belt & Buckle...
Shortly after returning home from a trip to Asia with my daughter in June of 2006, I began the dreaded task of unpacking. One of the first things I came across was one of the last things I’d purchased: a strange new belt without any holes. After quickly and easily sizing my strap according to the instructions, I slid my new "micro-adjustable" belt around my waist and adjusted it to an absolutely perfect fit. I thought to myself, where have you been all my life?!
Like every other man I’ve ever known, I've always worn a traditional belt with five holes punched in the strap spaced one inch apart. That's five choices in four inches. I can't tell you how many times I fastened my belt in one hole and felt it was too loose, only to take it in an inch to the next hole to find it was too tight. Or vice versa. How I'd wished there was another hole in between. I'm also guilty of creating new holes in my belt with an ice pick, nail, or even a knife when I lost enough weight to put me in the “no man’s land” beyond the last hole.
Now, here I was wearing a belt with a buckling mechanism that offered me 30 choices, spaced one-quarter of an inch apart, covering almost 8 inches. I could hardly believe the "perfect fit" this belt afforded me. And to top it off, this belt came with the ability to mix-and-match buckles!
I immediately began to search for other belts like this that I could add to my collection. I checked every website and belt outlet imaginable. I called friends and family all over the country and asked them to check out their local men's clothing stores. Nowhere could I find another belt like the one I had brought home from Asia.
It was an opportunity too good to pass up (plus I wanted more of these belts for myself!) so I decided to create Anson Belt & Buckle Company. With the help of my son, David, I worked to research, redesign, and perfect this product. After almost four years of consultation with attorneys, engineers, importers, web designers and marketers, we proudly launched Anson Belt & Buckle Company.
CEO & Co-Founder
Ever since I began wearing a belt it seems like I’ve been making my own holes in the leather. My belt would either be too tight or too loose and I always seemed to need a hole right between two others. I would use everything from a pocketknife to an ice pick to get just the right fit.
I assumed this would be the routine for pretty much the rest of my life until my father introduced me to a micro-adjustable design—the kind of belt that would become the cornerstone of Anson Belt & Buckle Company.
I fell in love with it from the first time I put it on. Finally: a belt that I can wear with everything from jeans to slacks without compromising comfort or fit. I experienced first-hand how great it was to be free from the limitations of holes, and I knew this design would change the way people wear belts. As part of Anson Belt & Buckle Company, I’m proud of the role I now play in bringing these benefits to others, helping them to discover this revolutionary product for themselves. I’m done making holes. Now I’m making converts.
It is my hope that those of you that have found this website will purchase one of our high quality, stylish and innovative belts and discover for yourself that there really is a better way to keep your pants up. I feel confident that once you experience the many advantages that our Anson Belts offer, like me, you'll never go back to the old method of fastening your belt. In fact, I’m so confident that we back all of our products with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, as well as a lifetime guarantee. When I say an Anson belt is the last belt you’ll ever want to own or have to buy, I really mean it.
