Smathers and Branson Croquet Needlepoint Belt. Smathers and Branson traditional belts are great for cocktail parties and at the office, but they are also perfect for a day on the water, the links, or a night at your favorite watering hole. Wherever you may be, your belt will set you apart from the average waist. The traditional belt is 1.25 in width, and is finished with full grain, chestnut colored leather. We stock sizes from 28-44, and can accommodate orders for sizes outside our general size range (please call to order). Our belts are 2 inches larger than your pants waist size. For example, someone whose pants have a 36 inch waist wears a 38 inch belt.
