I liked this item for a long while and when it went on sale I had to try it on. I love it! The belt is from Leatherock and, well, I've never been unhappy with any of their items. Based on the description I couldn't decide on the size so I ordered the large but Im thinking of exchanging it for a medium. The back does have an elastic waistband and Im thinking that a medium would fit better. In any case, order your true size and if you fall inbetween sizes order down. The belt is made to buckle on the second hole only. Im not sure I have enough outfits to justify purchasing a belt of this type, but I'm keeping it anyway!
