This belt is wonderful to look at and wear, the only downfall is that it's a little stiff but works out of it in time. I wear a size 32 in breeches and ordered the XL, I can get it to the second hole from the tail with a squeeze but comfortably it sits at the first hole; which I'm fine with and I believe it just needs to be worn a little bit and then the second hole won't be a squeeze. With that being said though I'd recommend this belt, just know it's stiff and a little small at first! Amazing quality though!!
