I buy the best leather I can which is Wickett and Craig do to color and cleanness of the leather. Right now I am a few days out an then next week will be a week or 2 out. Right now I charge $100 shipped but am hopping to be able to buy bulk from Wickett which is about 30 sides. So it’s quite a bit in cost once I can do that I can get cost down to 80.

I really cannot answer without knowing how you want the measurement. Fold to middle hole, buckle to hole, fold to end or buckle to end. My 32 might be your 38.....

I have
Have you ever done steel core?
the belts are very stiff and ridged when new and takes about a good month of wearing daily or longer for them to start breaking in . With the steel core I didn’t really like how they didn’t really break in to form my waist as a full leather would. Honestly don’t see the need unless using a cheap leather. It’s doable though. Just may not for ya like a glove

Another thing with the “steel core” belts is a lot are only single stitched. The double stitched gives it the twice the firmness. Is a huge difference in a single stitched vs double. Is like stuffing a bunch of ones in ur wallet to look a certain way ha
