No. 1 Leather Belt Adjusting Design – One Size Fits Most

Colonel Littleton designed our belt collection with more than a nod to the military and sportsman’s tradition. When the belt first came out, the general reaction was “Why hasn’t someone thought of this before?”

The uniqueness of this collection of belts is in its’ adjusting feature. The traditional front buckle belt allows only three inches of fluctuation. Colonel’s belt adds another 8 inches, adjusting in one-inch increments. This means that one size fits almost everyone, which also makes it a great gift item.

Here’s how it works. Rather than adjusting and readjusting the belt in the front and messing up the leather, you park it in the middle position, where it belongs, and make any necessary adjustments on the side. That way if you have on bulkier trousers, a heavyweight shirt, or layers for warmth… if you lose a few pounds or, heaven forbid, gain a few… your belt accommodates all these variations nicely.

Colonel chose sturdy Italian Bridle Leather for these belts which is perfect since it resists stretching. This heavier leather comes from a tannery in Santa Croce Sull’Arno, Italy. Aside from being one of the most functional and practical belt collections on the market, this collection looks uncommonly good… especially with khakis and jeans, for which it was designed.

The No. 1 Belt is available in Brown Italian Bridle Leather with Solid Brass hardware or Black Italian Bridle Leather with Nickel finish hardware. 1 3/16”W. Made in our Col. Littleton Workshop, Lynnville, TN USA.

Belt Fit Guide

  • Our belts are sized based on the exact inside circumference of the belt when buckled in the front, center position.
  • In addition to the standard front buckle positions, our unique side adjusting feature allows another 8 inches of adjustment in 1-inch increments.
  • Measure your waist circumference and compare to our sizes to determine fit. Our belts sizes should compare to your waist size rather than your pant size, since pant sizing may vary by manufacturer.
  • If you are between sizes, we recommend going up a size. For example, a Large Belt fits waist sizes 34 to 42-inches; so if you have a 33-inch waist, select the belt in Large.

86 reviews for No. 1 Leather Belt

  1. I put it on the minute it arrived! I have admired the leather goods from the Colonel and started my history with the #1 belt. I really liked the adjustability feature when I saw it in the catalog. Once it arrived I really admired the leather quality and brass fixtures. I had to take off the bison belt I was wearing to put the No. 1 on! I love it! I hope to purchase a grip bag soon!

  2. The belt is fantastic, good honest workmanship and brilliant materials and a timeless aesthetic. The attention to detail and the Colonel’s eye for quality are immediately apparent and I am proud to wear it for my wedding.

  3. Very well made. Lovely leather. I very much like its look and wear it often.
    That said, it gets 3 stars not 5. The hook and holes, reminiscent of a leather military sling, are clever. But the hook has a tendency to come undone when I am putting on my pants. It can be awkward to put back together if the belt is already threaded through the belt loops of your trousers. And, of course, it always happens when I am in a hurry.

  4. This is my 2nd No. 1 belt in over 15 years. The first one is still fine just shows a lot of wear, but just as good as the day I got it. I’ll still wear it to hunt, fish, and work outside with. Bought my son his 1st one today also (Hopefully he’s through growing). Hoping it will give him the same longevity mine has given me. Thanks, Colonel for such quality products.

  5. Typical excellent service from the Colonel and his crew! Fast shipping, high quality merchandise, and a happy customer! The way business should be conducted!

Our Story

Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

Our Craftsmanship

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
