Our mission is simple. We believe you want maximum comfort, style and choices in your wardrobe. So we designed the “ultimate belt” with that in mind, with: a) a wide array of interchangeable buckles, b) the option to add a patented, hidden waist adjuster — that allows you to wear tight or loose jeans again; and, last but not least, c) an incredible array of leathers. Materials range from crocodile print, pebble grain and bridle leather, to Vegan and Cactus. When you spend money on jeans you love, you want them to last, despite normal weight fluctuations. Our magical waist adjuster makes our belt one of the most sustainable accessories in your wardrobe. They are worn counterclockwise to add more width to the waist — and clockwise to tighten the waist of your jeans and pants!
It took Lynn Taylor many prototypes and revisions over three years, to get the adjuster engineered in just the right place, while also providing maximum comfort and discretion. Jeans have been around for 150 years. But no other product on the market expands and contracts the waist of your jeans via a fashion belt.
Adding to our mission of sustainability is our collection of interchangeable buckles, when you buy two or more belts. More buckle variety and flexibility extend the life of your belts, too! As sustainability gains awareness, we are proud to offer the only accessory that has the ability to expand the life of your wardrobe.
What we wear often defines how we feel. Beyond giving you luxury in your belt, our bigger mission at Behind the Buckle is we want you to feel great — and that includes feeling great about what you’re doing for the planet and future generations.
With an eye towards sustainability, we have made sure that you can interchange our buckles within each style category on Behind the Buckle belts. For example, all our Equestrian belt buckles are interchangeable with each other, with the exception of our Woven Western. All our rectangular buckles are interchangeable within that category, and our oval ones are within their group, too.
If you want to go wild with this, you can actually swap out your Rectangle style buckle belts with the Equestrian, as well. But you’ll need to keep the Equestrian buckle loop (or “keeper”) once your remove it. That’s because the rectangular ones don’t require a loop. We don’t sell the loops separately.
Here’s a handy YouTube video on how to swap out a buckle. Be sure to use both thumbs and press down hard, as snaps are meant to be sturdy, especially in the beginning until they’re worked in a bit. If you have any questions, you can always contact us. So have fun mixing and matching!
