No. 5 Cinch Belt in American Buffalo

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 American Buffalo 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).

Product packaging includes a protective cotton canvas dust bag and gift box.

“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.”

Made in our Col. Littleton Workshop in 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.
  • Our unique side adjusting feature allows 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 from 34-inches to 42-inches, so if you have a 33-inch waist, select the belt in Large.

American Buffalo – “Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.” ~ Colonel

  1. I like belts and interesting buckles so when I saw this No. 5 Cinch Belt from Colonel Littleton buying one was an easy decision. The bison leather is nicely finished and the unique brass buckle is not something you’re going to see everyday on other people. What’s particularly special about this belt is the ability to adjust the size to allow for bulkier clothing or when you might gain or lose a little weight. Overall, this a very stylish belt that will look great with jeans or khakis.

  2. Purchased #5 leather cinch belt and perfect fit right out of collectible box. This makes my second Littleton Belt. Great to see American craftsmanship at its best.

  3. Love this belt. Great quality, just like all Colonel products! Can’t wait to get a tobacco brown with stainless hardware!

  4. Really neat bison belt. I love the clasp and overall design, plenty of brass hardware. Definitely a valuable addition to my wardrobe. I am glad Colonel didn’t make it look like it was 5 years old, prefer the new look. He has done it again, bravo, Colonel.

  5. Outstanding leather and buffalo hides, amazing workmanship, and fit. This is my third belt and all are amazing and look fantastic with jeans and a suit when I go off to work. I can’t wait for the Colonel to decide to offer American Buffalo, Tobacco Brown with a stainless cinch buckle. I will have the best belt wardrobe! The service and care by everyone at Colonel Littleton are the best. Courteous, friendly, responsive, and a positive experience. Be well and safe. San Martin. El Dorado Hills, California.

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 steerhide 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.
