Belt sizing - How to measure for a perfect fit:

Most belts even the very expensive belts offered by famous brands leave the edges raw and rough or may be coated with a thick layer of paint that will peel off in time.

My belief is that to finish a belt to perfection and to bring about the true craftsmanship is to dye the edges as well as the holes and then bevel the edges and finally burnish  them to perfection. A rather labour intensive process but the result of my belts will speak for themselves.
