    What's the deal with trouser belts? They're generally marked (at least here in the UK) with a 2" span (32"-34", 34"-36", etc.) yet the total hole span is far greater than 2". A 34"-36" belt would easily accommodate a 30" waist.

    Inquiring minds need to know the reasoning behind this :D.

    I have not bought a leather belt with holes in it for years, the ones I use now are made of a thickish material with a locking clip on them.

    I cannot remember when I had a thirty inch waist, probably when I was at school... :D

    :D
    I can't remember when I last had a 30" waist either, but I'm heading that way ATM. That's what prompted this thread as I recently bought some new pairs of jeans and a belt due to my decreasing waist size. No-one wants to see me with my trousers round my knees!! :wideyed:
