    A number of years ago I bought a nice hand forged buckle and made a belt for it. The belt is 2" to 2 1/8" wide. It has served me well over the years but I got to thinking. I did not think about it when I bought the buckle from the trader at the time. What was the average belt width in the 1700s...
