Handmade Leather Cinch Belt No. 5

Spark conversation every time you wear this unique leather belt. After all, 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 Leather Cinch Belt could have easily been worn by the U. S. Cavalry or by Teddy Roosevelt on his trek through Africa. 

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

– Colonel Littleton

Designed with jeans or a well-worn pair of khakis in mind, the belt is made of brown or black bridle leather. Our unique, adjusting feature allows the belt to be adjusted in one-inch increments. One size fits almost everyone, making it a great gift item.

Handcrafted in the Col. Littleton Workshop in Lynnville, TN USA using finely finished Italian Bridle Leather.

Cinch Belt Size Chart & Fit Guide:

  • Small – Fits sizes 26″ – 32″
  • Large – Fits sizes 34″ – 42″
  • XLarge – Fits sizes 42″ – 50″

Also available in:

If you are between sizes, we recommend going up a size. For example, a Large Belt fits waist sizes from 34-inches to 42-inches, so if you have a 33-inch waist, select the belt in Large.

Measure your waist circumference and compare to our sizes to determine fit. Our belt sizes should compare to your waist size rather than your pant size, since pant sizing may vary by manufacturer.

Our belts are sized based on the exact inside circumference of the belt when buckled in the front, center position. Our unique side adjusting feature allows 8 inches of adjustment in 1-inch increments. Front cinch buckle has one-position when closed and does not adjust in front.

  1. I bought the #5 Cinch, and couldn’t be happier with the whole process. The belt is beautiful, the packaging great, all the details were exceptional. I’m not the brightest light in the tool shed and had to phone the office, and spoke to Tina, who taught me how to use the belt in about a minute and a half. They have a great story, great products and great people, what else is there to say.

  2. This unique belt is sharp and a conversation starter. My son was given one as a grad gift and now it is my go to grad gift for others!

  3. Received my No. 5 Cinch Belt today in black. I have the brown one too. Quality craftsmanship. Very quick delivery. Now I’m hooked. What’s next? I’ll think of something. Probably the suspenders. Thanks Colonel.

  4. I recently bought this Colonel Littleton belt to replace a belt that I had lost, and I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s stylist, uniquely different and well made and I know it will last for a very very long time. Not only that but the customer service I received upon purchasing this item was an experience I won’t soon forget! I received a hand written note and email thanking me for my purchase, received the belt in the mail two days after I ordered it in the coolest packaging with a moonpie!! Delicious! I am so grateful for this shopping experience and I will be wearing my belt every day hoping that I don’t lose it!!

  5. Received the #5 Cinch a few days ago in brown and like it so much I purchased one in black today. These belts are the best. I’ve many U.S. made leather belts and these belts surpass all of them.

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.
