Curly belt


Why do ALL of my leather belts become warped and curved after wearing them just a few times?

– Thomas

As you cinch your belt to compress your abdomen, the belt leather is scraping across the metal buckle. If you’ve ever scraped a piece of ribbon across a scissor blade to make it all curly, it’s the same effect. From now on, suck in your gut and get the belt all the way through the buckle without touching the leather to the metal. Kind of like playing Operation (hmm i should make an online version of that game, as a test of mouse control).

Anyway, do as I say and your belt troubles will be history.

    Good advice, but that’s not how I interpreted the question. My belts develop an arc in the part that’s goes across the middle of my back. This arc is in the opposite plane as the curl created by rolling a belt into a spiral. Perhaps I am just too fat and should consider suspenders?

    Yep I would switch to suspenders if you are fat…
