Belt FAQ

Still have a couple of questions about belts? We have answers!

What are the names of different parts on a belt?

The two key pieces of a belt are the strap and a buckle. These two parts work together to fasten the belt around your waist. Both parts serve aesthetic and functional purposes.

Key pieces of a belt

  • Belt strap: this is the long part of the belt that you wear around your body and adjust to fit. It connects to the buckle to secure the entire belt. Belt straps are typically made from leather, but can also use other materials.
  • Belt Buckle: the buckle attaches to one end of the belt and is used to fasten the belt. Buckles can be made from various materials, including metal, plastic, and wood.

What are the pieces of a belt buckle called?

Traditional belt buckles are made with three parts: the prong or pin, the frame, and the post. Belts that use this buckle style also need a leather keep to prevent the extra strap from flopping down. This design hasn't changed much in years and is pretty boring, looks sloppy, and isn't nearly as cool as our belt buckles.
