We are now offering a full range of NCO & Officer belt blanks for Union and Confederate troops with their own buckle. We send you the belt with a hook and keeper and pre-punched holes to attach your buckle. Upon request, we can also make them into sword belts for your buckle. NOTE: Prices are only for the belt without the buckle. Each buckle is different in size so you must give the width of the loops of the buckle where the belt goes through. You can also choose a buckle from our Belt Plate and Buckle listing and purchase it separately and we can mount it on the belt for you, which the price includes mounting of a buckle and custom fitting to your specifications. Please visit our Belt Ordering Policy to get the correct measurement.

NOTE: Please take extra care and follow these easy directions for sizing your belt.
Military belts worn in the 19th century were generally worn around the wearer's navel area. If you are ordering your belt for Civil War reenacting, you should measure accurately the full distance (point-to-point circumference) around your naval area with a cloth tape measure and preferably with your uniform on the way you would be wearing it (including a sash if applicable). Please do not send us your modern jeans waist size for a belt worn for military use! Do not include the buckle in your measurement. We will make all necessary adjustments.
If you are ordering a belt specifically to be worn with modern civilian casual wear (jeans), then you must measure the circumference of your waist only, point-to-point.
We will not be responsible for belt returns that are too small due to customer measurement error. So please be sure to follow the directions above. There is no charge for shortening your Dell's Leather Works belts, however, the customer is responsible for shipping.
