WHICH WAY TO WEAR A BELT: WHY IT MATTERS FOR FINDING THE PERFECT BELT
When purchasing a belt, there are a few things you need to consider. Whether it's the color of the belt, quality, or just a certain style, there are many factors that go into making the right purchase.
But did you know that there is a certain way you are supposed to wear a belt? Depending on your gender, and even what your dominant hand is, there are set ways belts are generally worn. Knowing which way to wear a belt can help you determine what kind of belt and buckle is perfect for your needs.
WAYS TO WEAR A BELT
Historically, women and men have worn belts in different ways. Men will typically wear a belt counterclockwise, from left to right, with the end of the belt going through the buckle and ending on the left side of the zipper.
However, a left-handed man might end up wearing their belt clockwise, from right to left, due to their dominant hand. This also leads us into which direction women will wear a belt.
Women have historically worn their belts clockwise, from right to left, with the end of the belt going through the buckle and ending on the right side of the buckle or zipper. This information can matter with certain types of belts and buckles, like the ratchet belt.
A ratchet belt is a belt that does not have any belt holes and uses a ratchet system, where the belt will lock into place by using the inside of the buckle. These types of belts often stay in place by using a latch inside the buckle that will lock onto the teeth of a belt. It also allows for you to change the size of your belt to a more accurate size than a traditional belt through belt holes.
A traditional belt will go through belt holes that are typically spaced out 1 inch apart from each other. With a ratchet belt, the buckle will lock into place on the teeth of the belt which are much closer and allow for more flexibility and "in-between" sizes.
For example, here are the steps for our Nexbelt Ratchet belt, including how to put on a belt buckle:
Find your pant size
- Add a couple of inches and then cut
- Insert the strap into the buckle clasp
That's it! We make it as simple as possible to wear and adjust Nexbelt belts and buckles.
One extra tip if you're struggling with the Nexbelt buckle. Our belt buckles have a small lever on the bottom of the buckle that will release the latch, which in turn will release the belt. This is set up for someone who wears their belt clockwise.
However, some like it on top and will wear the belt counterclockwise or purchase a different kind of buckle. However you wear your belt or what kind of buckle you use, make sure you get a quality Ratchet belt that will last for the best and most comfortable fit.
