Nickel allergy doesn’t discriminate when it comes to size. More men are discovering that their itchy abdominal rash is a classic symptom of an allergic reaction to the nickel in their belt buckle.
With the rising demand for all sizes of nickel free belts, NoNickel has increased their inventory of larger sizes, up to size 64” (162 cm) in many of the handcrafted leather belts offered. One of the more popular big and tall casual belts is Roan Mountain Nickel Free Belt, which is currently available in sizes from 32” (81 cm) to 60” (152 cm). The reason for its popularity is simple, this full grain leather belt offers extreme comfort from the first day of wearing and it comes with a lifetime guarantee to never test positive for nickel. No nickel means no nickel rash.
For a dress belt set, the Silver Square Nickel Free Belt Set features handcrafted top grain leather straps in black and brown in sizes up to 48” which are paired with identical nickel free buckles. This belt set is also available with titanium buckles, in the Silver Square Titanium Belt Set.
Titanium is recommended by physicians around the world for those individuals who are allergic to more metals than nickel. Titanium is also the perfect solution for those who have difficulty with buckle breakage due to active lifestyles or professions. Lightweight and incredibly durable, non-allergenic titanium is a very attractive option for belt buckles. The Silver Square Titanium Belt Set is part of the Signature Series Belt Collections; these belts come with a lifetime guarantee against breakage or defect. Many of the Signature Series Titanium Work Belts are available in larger sizes.
A trendy option for big and tall shoppers is the Cold Mountain Black Nickel Free Belt (pictured). With sizes up to 64”, this full grain leather belt is paired with a functional bottle opener buckle. A center-bar buckle, this nickel free buckle looks amazing and will actually open a bottle!

Most of our belts are sized from the Buckle Fold to the Middle Hole. A 36” belt will have a center hole at 36” and two holes on either side of the center spaced 1” apart each. A 36” belt can be worn as small as 34” and as big as 38”.
There are several options to determine your ideal belt size.
The ideal way is to measure your waist through your belt loops. This measurement is the size of belt you should purchase (i.e. if you have a 34” measurement, order a 34” belt).
An alternative option is to measure your old belt from the Buckle Fold to the Hole you use. If your belt measures 38” from buckle fold to the hole you use most; then order a 38” belt. This will give you a belt with 2 holes either side of the hole you use most.
