Belts smaller than a size W28 - Where to find??

Looking for leather dress belt in size 28... topman seems to be only place that offers it.

any other suggestions in-store or online?

You're really thin. Gosh ... a guy that needs a belt for under size 28 ... wow!

Just buy a Size 30 belt and then Punch a couple Holes through the leather belt.

Over time ... you should gain some weight and then you won't need to buy another belt unless it's ruined.

I used to think that I was thin at a size 29 ... then in some way shape or form ... I gained weight after a one month vacation in Taiwan ... came back with a size 34 and I've been able to keep my waist size anywhere between 32-34 for the past 5 years ...

i have the same problem as you. the smallest sizes are usually a bit too big for me.

good quality stuff:
brooks brothers kids belts can be ordered online.
j crew's smallest size also works well.

something cool which has replaced all of my belts:
anson belts
check them out online.
they are absolutely amazing.
cut it exactly to your size

mix and match belts and buckles

fairly minimalist design that doesnt look too flashy

It was ages ago that I had ordered from BB. I don't remember if there was duty.
There's also a store in Milton's outlets, and Vaughan Mills which might have kids belt.

But to be honest. After getting my anson belts, I haven't used the others.

Had the same issue before ... bit when I was in Hong Kong and Taiwan, I went to their street markets and purchased some belts with removable buckles.

Then I just punched holes with a leather hole puncher.

Anson Belt - An interesting concept where you choose the belt and buckle separately. The belts are 1 size only (50 inch) and you chop off the end wherever you like, and then attach your buckle to it. It's actually popular among people working to lose weight, since they can chop off the end gradually and never go back.

I like their interchangeability because you might get 2 belts and 4 buckles, and suddenly you have "eight" different belts since you can mix and match the parts.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

USD$50 + shipping (in USD) per belt ... that's steep ...

When I was in Hong Kong ( Ladies' Market ) over the Christmas Holidays ... I picked up 5 leather belts (each one had one of those removable buckles and each one was cut your own length) ... and it was HKD$50 each belt ... and I was able to bargain to HKD$200 for all 5 belts ... USED ONLY CANADIAN PERFECT ENGLISH (and laughed afterwards because I fully understood what they were saying, just pretending that I don't speak Cantonese)

Go to a place that cuts their belts to size or have the option to.

Loding, for example, will do it for you. Their belts are all $80.

I wear cheap belts so I don't mind cutting the buckle end shorter or punching a couple more holes on the tip end

Good tip for adding holes to your belt is to use a drill and bit if you dont have access to a leather punch

punching additional holes helps with the length but how about the width being disproportionate.

Finding belts that fit in length AND under 1" in width are extremely rare. Smallest I've seen mostly are 1.25"

Why would you get a belt that is under 1" in width? That is a very very very very odd pair of pants ..

Most normal pants use 1-1/4" to 1-3/4" width belts ...

well if the waist is gonna be smaller than 28, the belt width needs to be proportionate to both the waist and belt loop...
