Prices are kept the same for everyone all the time. After over 15 years spent in retail before starting this business, it was found a common trick retailers play is to raise the prices across the board so as to offer “discounts” to various groups without actually affecting the business’s bottom line, and always thought that was janky.
There are sales and special pricing from time to time for everyone, so pay attention to our social media for notices, as well as the clearance area of the web store: The Abattoir.
All of our belt sizing is based off actual measurements, NOT YOUR PANTS SIZE! An actual measurement over top where the belt will ride, including anything tucked into your pants or over top an inner belt, is the best place to start.
Different models have slightly different sizing how-to’s so please read the sizing info clearly spelled out in the individual item descriptions. For instance some belts overlap and some do not so the lengths on these belts needed will be different. The most common reason belts are returned is because the customer didn’t read the description and ordered the wrong size. Send an email if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to help you dial in the best fit.
We get asked this question a lot. According to the vaudeville historian Tom Waits, we need to go all the way back to the Civil War for the answer.

The resulting baby was just fine and the woman was happy to be guilt-free. However, the soldier was pretty pissed off.
