Product Description

It isn’t often that a totally new design in men’s belts comes along, especially one that says adventure, ruggedness and Americana all in one package. The No. 5 Cinch Belt could have easily been worn by the U. S. Cavalry or by Teddy Roosevelt on his trek through Africa. What makes this belt so unique is its lever-action buckling mechanism, which gives it a snug fit and a style that will generate conversation each time you wear it.

Designed with jeans or a well-worn pair of khakis in mind, the belt is made of dark brown or black bridle leather. Edged Stitched. Made in our Col. Littleton Workshop.

Available with Solid brass hardware and 1 3/8″ wide belt strap (Requires a 2″belt loop to accommodate buckle hardware.) or Stainless steel hardware and 1 3/16″ wide belt strap (Requires a 1 5/8″belt loop to accommodate buckle hardware.)

“The only thing I would change about this belt if I could,” says the Colonel,“would be to make them all look as if they had been worn about 5 years when they go out the door.”

    Own two of them
    I own two of the cinch belts, brown and black and both with silver hardware. I wear them almost everyday with jeans and consistently get comments how the belts, “How does it work? Where did you get that belt?” The only downside is it does set off the metal detectors at TSA checkpoints. But that just shows the amount of metal and quality of the product. I never mind having to take it off before passing through. I enjoyed these so much, I have given three away as gifts. There are only a few things guys can do to stand out from the crowd, a great mechanical watch, good shave, polished shoes, and this belt. I would highly recommend for someone looking to break the norms and try out a different belt.

    Last Belt I’ll Ever Buy
    I now have 2 of these Cinch Belts, one black and one brown. They are amazing. The quality of the leather and the construction is top notch. I get so many compliments on these belts and I know they will last forever. The locking mechanism is so unique, and the adjustable sides are ingenious. I seriously don’t think I’ll ever use any other belt. LOVE this product. And the company is also such a pleasure to work with. Personal emails when you order, packaged in beautiful boxes and shipped so carefully…and don’t forget the moon pie. All I can say is “Wow!” I wish Colonel Littleton crafted an entire wardrobe for men.

    Tough as nails!
    I purchased this belt nearly 7 years ago while i was in alaska. Since that time i have worn it nearly every day. Hiking in Sitka or walking through Juneau it has been my faithful and steadfast companion. The only issue i have every had is people stopping me to ask about it! Now i see there is a model in black and stainless, looks like I will have to spend a little more time in the morning debating which one to wear!

    Best Belt I’ve ever owned!
    Great Belt and best I’ve ever owned! First time that I have done business with the Col. and it would be impossible for me to be any happier with the purchase! The ordering assistance and service were great. Hope to be doing business with you again soon. The leather duster is on my list. Best and Thanks again, Rick Cudlipp

    An instant classic
    When you receive a Colonel Littleton purchase you begin to understand the true meaning of attention to detail from the moment you hold the shipping box. The shipping box is sturdy with plenty of packaging. The belt was in yet another sturdy, simple, yet elegant box which does nothing but heighten the anticipation of actually getting to the contents. The belt itself is nothing less than an instant classic. You will not find another belt like this anywhere. The leather, hardware, and design are of the highest quality and immediately take you back to an era that has long been forgotten in America. You will love this belt but more importantly you will love the entire ordering experience. Thanks for the personal email confirming my purchase, the great catalog, and of course the Moon Pie. God Bless

    Love This Belt!
    Just bought this belt and wore for the first time tonight, it’s classically elegant but not too overstated. Brown/brass belt looks great with jeans and brown leather shoes
    and stainless/gold wristwatch (Rollie). $120 for a belt is money but you will wear it every day and your grandkid will inherit it . I look forward to breaking it in with a little scuff/distressed look!

    Great belt!!!
    Love this belt and get tons of compliments on the belt. That being said, the belt is just a tad too wide for blue jean loops. You will need patience to thread the belt on before you pull on your jeans. I know the belt will last a lifetime though. Great quality!!!

    Excellent craftsmanship!
    Had this belt for years now and it keeps getting compliments!

    Best Belt EVER
    I LOVE this belt… I have the black with stainless and wear it just about EVERYDAY! Not only is the quality TOP NOTCH, I am constantly asked about it. Understand that although this belt is $120, it will last. Very few things in my life I will say are worth every penny… but this one thing that truly is!

    Stopped everywhere and back for more!
    When I first saw this belt I knew I had to have one. Now I have two!

    The first, a CB5S-5 in brown and brass, has seen ~3 years of daily use (tech industry office worker). I’ve been stopped and asked about it in all sorts of places — courthouses, airports, offices, parties….

    In terms of wear and weathering, the only scuffing is from my cell phone holster (hard glass-reinforced nylon including the clip). I have given it two “baths” so far, using paste saddle soap, along with a few paste mink oil treatments to deal with moisture exposure during inclement weather.

    The second, a CB5S-6SS in black and stainless which was still in development when I received the first belt, has only seen occasional use. It is much finer (“classy” sense) so I have tried to keep it in pristine condition for use with dress clothes. The hardware is a bit more delicate, in keeping with the narrower deep-black gloss belt material, and the pelican bill (?) has a deeper arch to it.

    Overall, extremely happy with both, have recommended them to others who express interest in the design.

    Quality Product
    I currently own 3 Col. Littleton belts. Not only are they very aesthetically pleasing, but also very well constructed and durable. All of the Col’s products I own seem to age well and develop unique character. When will they bring back the brown leather belt with the pommel shield?!

    All time favorite casual belt!
    This belt is a piece of American art. The flip over buckle is so unique it has become a conversation piece. Great quality construction all around. Love this belt. The other great thing is that I’m now loosing weight and the multiple length options allow me to continue using the same belt. Totally satisfied with this belt as well as all other Col Littleton products.

    Plate pops off no big deal
    I think the name plate popping off is a problem with this belt, but a reeaaaly minor one. I love this belt- going on three years. When I first got it after a couple of months the name plate did pop off, but I think its unavoidable and not really a defect. Your body is curved in your own way and as the belt molds to you, the straight plate will undergo some stress. My local shoe repair place repaired it in about 30 seconds for free. I bet you can avoid problems altogether if you gently bend and curve the name plate when you get it…

    (Col. Littleton: The name plate feature mentioned is no longer offered on this belt.)

    Love It and lots of compliments and questions of where I got it!!!
    This is a great addition to any wardrobe!!!!!!!!

    Expected a lot, got more!
    I have never received more complements on an article of clothing in my life. I ordered it just to see what could make a belt worth that much money, now I know. I’m saving up to get another in black!

    Excellent Quality, Eye-catching Style
    I purchased my brown and brass cinch belt at a nearby Orvis store because it simply stood out from the rest with the old style rifle strap clips immediately catching my eye.

    The (not so) bad: A little bit wide for most of my belt loops but still wearable if you are patient. The description is accurate so pay attention! but I have been able to thread it on khaki’s, slacks and jeans, just be careful.

    The great: The style and durability are excellent! I’ve been wearing this belt for months and really enjoy it for casual Fridays or every day I’m not at work. It gets frequent comments and compliments. The simple buckle is fantastic. If you need to straighten your shirttails it’s superbly quick and easy to open and close.

    I’d buy this one again but I doubt I’ll ever have to.

    Great service, great product, EXTREMELY happy with it all!
    Sandy helped me during a recent visit to the store. Fell in love with the belt. Just received it (along with a Moon Pie, of course!). Can’t wait to make it part of my casual wardrobe. Definitely recommend all things Colonel Littleton.

    Outstanding service and item
    Fell in love with the belt but the pins holding face plate with my initials came off. Col. Littleton fixed it with no questions asked and also included a small gift.
    Thanks Col. You guys certainly stand behind your products. You know I’ll be back.

    Outstanding Value and a Unique Belt
    Purchased for my brother as a graduation gift. He just Commisioned as a Second Lt. U.S. Army. Quite appropriate.

    Poor Quality
    Received the No. 5 Cinch Belt from my wife for Christmas. Before I even tried it on, one of two rivets holding the buckle on popped off. It has a beautiful appearance and the cinch buckle is unique – but the poor craftsmanship is unfortunate. Given the hype, I had a right to expect more in a $130 trouser belt.

    Response from Col. Littleton:
    We sincerely apologize for this problem, and regret the understandable disappointment for our customer. As our guarantee states, we stand behind the quality of our products and we will quickly replace any defective item, or offer a full refund. We truly appreciate the opportunity to address and resolve any issue of this sort.

    Thought I had all the belts I’d need
    Had the brown one first. Bought the black and brass on a trip to Nashville, now I need to get the black and stainless one!

    Great quality
    I was so impressed with my black cinch belt that I bought a brown one as well! You will love this belt.

    The Perfect Belt for a Sunday afternoon ride.
    I have had the brown cinch belt for sometime and love it. When the new black with stainless hardware came out I had to have it!! It’s the perfect belt for riding my harley with black riding boots. I had “Road King” engraved on the plate which is what I ride. Two great American companies, Col Littleton and Harley Davidson.
