OK, so this is the fourth belt I've purchased from Nexbelt. Do you even need to know why? For the uninformed, these are the best belts ever!! If you gain or lose an inch, these belts are right with you. Ever had a belt that was either too loose or too tight. You'll never cut another notch because these fit perfectly. In fact, I think I'm going to go over and get one of those American Flag "buckles." That'll look darn sharp on this.
