I bought one black and one brown belt about a year ago, both 44" long. Black belt end was packaged in a reverse roll back while the brown belt was not reversed. Had to wear the black belt many times to get the end to lay flat around my waist. Black belt buckle never clamped on securely, falling off occasionally. Leather on black belt separated; the facing from backing in two places: 5 inches back from the tip and 6 inches the buckle end.
Ironically the brown belt was packaged in a smooth roll, the buckle clamps on and no separation is occurring.
I ordered a replacement black belt on internet touted as "one size." Thought that meant the same as my order a year ago. Got a 40" belt, which was too short. Per your instructions, the return via UPS cost me $6. I THINK YOUR COMPANY OWES ME A BLACK BELT.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
