Made in Italy leather belts are ideal as they can be shortened without altering the style. If the leather belt strap is too long and you prefer the belt to be shorter then it’s just a matter of following the 4 easy steps.

Step 1 - Unscrew the screw

Located at the buckle end.

Step 2 - Cut to size

  • Measure the length you require then cut the leather strap to size.
  • It would be advisable to re-measure before cutting or alternatively cut the leather a bit at a time then re measure until you get to the size you need, this way it will eliminate unwanted errors like cutting the leather strap too short.

Step 3 - Insert new hole

  • Once the leather strap has been cut to size, you will need to insert a new hole.
  • You can make the hole yourself using a leather hole punch tool or you can take the leather strap to a shoe repair so they can punch the hole for you.
  • Make sure you take the leather piece that was detached (buckle end) with you so the hole is cut in the right spot.

Step 4 - Screw leather pieces

  • Insert the leather strap into the leather piece attached to the buckle, then screw together. 
  • Now you have the size you need.


The above steps are a guide only and at customers own discretion. Made in Italy Accessories will take no responsibility if the leather strap is cut too short.
