How do I measure to fit a 59 Belt?
Follow these instructions below to the nearest half-inch size. **Due to pant and belt sizing inconsistencies from manufacturer to manufacturer, we cannot take ‘normal’ or ‘regular’ belt sizing. Measure once, cut once is our motto.

What type of fitting system should I order?
We ave two different fitting systems depending on your needs. ’59 Style’ (two-prong) is the original fitting system that we devised to fit belt straps onto our belt buckles. 59 Style is 100% unique to our brand and a very clean and sleek fit.  ‘Traditional fit’ (single-prong) is the most common fitting system in the world and has been used for hundreds if not thousands of years. If you have existing belt straps that you want to wear a 59 buckle on, we can make a buckle to fit your belt(s). If you prefer a more slick and clean fit for your belts, we suggest you choose ’59 Style’ for your purchase.

What type of file do we need to work from?
We prefer to work from a PDF or AI file if possible. If not, a jpg, tiff, png will work. We cannot work from an image or DST (embroidery) file. Submit a new design for a quick buckle quote HERE

Do you create or help with buckle design?
We are not a design studio, but we can help make concepts come to fruition if we are provided with artwork or a concept sketch. Additional fees may apply.

What are the buckle and belt dimensions?
Mini buckle size: 1-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ / 46mm x 72mm
Standard buckle size: 2-1/8″ x 3-1/8″ / 55mm x 80mm

How much do your buckles weigh?
Our Custom ‘59’ Stainless Steel buckles are surprisingly light weighing in around 135 grams. Our Custom ‘59’ aluminum buckles “Player Series” are approximately 70 grams. The exact weight is highly dependent on individual buckle design.

How long does it take to make a custom buckle?
Depending on our workload, 3-4 weeks. We do accept rush orders if time permits. (Express manufacturing and shipping fees will apply).

Do you ship overseas, and what are your shipping fees?
YES. We ship anywhere on the globe. Regular shipping rates range from $25-$50 for standard overseas deliveries.

I am thinking of a custom logo that I would like 59Belts to have made into a buckle. Can you do that?
Creating One-of-a-kind custom belt buckles is what we are known for. As long as there are no trademark or copyright concerns, we can create a custom buckle from most any design. Simply contact us at [email protected] and include your logo image or design and we will provide you a quote.

What are my custom buckle material & finishing options?
Our most popular buckle materials are milled from solid stainless steel or aluminum stock. Stainless buckles are offered in polished, brushed or torched finishes. Aluminum buckles are typically powder coated to offer a more colorful alternative than stainless. We also have an exotic material line for those who are looking for something even more unique.

What are the additional Charges for multi-colored buckles?
Most buckles we create are single-colored (powder coat) to save on costs and pricing to our customers. If you have a buckle design that requires multiple powder coat colors, you can expect to pay $25 for each additional powder. *Note – Sometimes for more intricate buckles that require powder are not possible. We do our best, but we do have some limitations when it comes to powder coating as some jobs are simply impossible.

Do you have a minimum order requirement for custom orders?
We DO NOT have a minimum order requirement. We create custom one-off buckles all the time. The first buckle is always the most expensive due to the unavoidable set-up steps involved (artwork conversion, proofing, programming, etc…). Larger orders are offered at better ‘volume’ pricing.

How much will I pay for a custom logo 59 Belt buckle?
Custom belt buckles are price based depending on the material and design intricacy. To get a quick quote, please submit your design and questions to us at [email protected]. We will follow up quickly with accurate pricing and sample images of other buckles we have done to show you some styling and finishing options.

Can I wear my belts on a custom 59 buckle?
YES, we can create a belt buckle to fit on your traditional belt straps 1.5” in width ONLY. If you see a buckle on the website or have a custom project for us to create, we can build a buckle to fit onto your collection of straps.

How long does it take to receive a special order Exotic or Hybrid Strap?
Exotic Straps are usually on a two-week turnaround, plus shipping. Our custom buckles and straps are largely hand made to exact customer specifications, not mass-produced. Your patience is greatly appreciated!

How can I replace my belt or add to my collection?
Additional straps can be ordered individually on our website at www.59belts.com.

Do you carry over-length belt sizing?
Yes, we usually have a few over-length ’59 Style’ (two-prong) belt straps in stock in some of our more popular colors (white, black, brown). We can order almost any length in exotic skin. Additional fees on exotic belts is a standard 25% over retail pricing.

Do all ’59’ belt straps have the 59 logo on them or can I order one without?
We do have Black and White straps available without any 59 stampings on them. Our standard leather straps are ordered in quantity from our supplier with the ‘59’ foil logo on them in one spot on the strap (right hip). **Exotic straps do not have any logos on the outside of the strap.

Does your 59 logo have to be on my custom buckle?
We work extremely hard to produce a unique one of a kind product and place a small 59 on the buckle for branding purposes. We do have a ‘non-logo’ fee for those who are deeply concerned.
