This belt came too long for me. So I decided to try my luck at shortening it.
After all, how hard could it be? The buckle part is made of vinyl, not leather.
So this is how I did it... First I carefully picked out the stitching holding the
buckle to the belting (which by the way is stretchy elastic).
One thing that might make that easier is once you get it started, try to pick it out
between the vinyl and the belting instead of on the outside.
Then measure carefully and cut off the belting.
Make sure the edges are neatly tucked in...nothing hanging outside.
A few simple steps and your belt fits! Yeah!
And no one will be the wiser that you shortened your belt yourself.
