The Men’s Gucci Belts Sizing Guide
Men’s belts are available in the Gucci waist measurement in centimeters, which is easily translatable to your waist size in inches. Belts are typically two inches larger than your waist or hip size, and are measured to the middle hole; there are usually five holes on a belt, allowing flexibility regarding the size you purchase.
In the US, belts are measured in inches. However, most European countries measure belts in centimeters. European belt sizes for both genders increase in 5 centimeter increments. If you are between sizes, it is generally advisable to go up to the larger belt size. You may also want a slightly larger size if you plan to wear your belt both at the waist and around the hips. The low rise fit of a hip belt requires a larger size than what you’d need to wear only around your waist.
- How do I know that my Gucci belt is genuine?
Every Gucci belt will come with a branded, logo-embossed packaging. The logo will also be printed on the inside of the belt. Gucci products are sold by Gucci retail and outlet stores, as well as authorized retailers and department stores.
- Do Gucci men's belts go left or right?
The belt is inserted through the left-side loops first, so that when done up, the spare end is on your left, too and complements the waist of your pants which are also fastened in that way.
- How do I care for my Gucci belt?
Most Gucci belts are made from 100% Italian leather, and come with brushed gold plated or nickel plated buckles. Italian leather is chosen for its quality, with only natural vegetable and plant-based extracts used during the manufacturing process.
To keep your Gucci belt looking its best, we recommend cleaning with a soft cloth, saddle soap and lukewarm water and hanging vertically to dry. Leather belts can dry out if stored in sunlight and can get mildew damage if stored in humid areas, so we would advise keeping your belt rolled up in a protective bag when not in use.
