Clever died when you used a Hermes belt to try your first punch! Next time spend a few bucks on this
Congratulations! You've earned one of these!
You can buy a cheap rotary punch and do it. It's really easy to use.
A) I have an awl in my craft kit that I usually use. B) If you have a hammer and nail, you can also use that; put something underneath that won't get damaged. C) They do sell actual leather hole punches for pretty cheap.
Marking the holes
Making the holes
I wanted to give a heads up for those looking to save money with DIY foams. I went through 3 orders of Comply tips over a 3-4 month span. They would literally tear up due to the excess earwax after 2-3 weeks of use(even with the earwax proof version). I got fed up and ordered these
I've been using these DIY tips for a long time and its been amazing.
I've gone through about 8 pairs of DIY foam tips with my Triplefi v10 and still have tons of spare foam tips left.
Using something like this is a lot cheaper than buying new belts. Works great.
Also, you might want to invest in a belt hole punch. They're about $8-10 on amazon, and its way easier than trying to use a drill to make an emergency hole in a belt at 6 am. Ask me how I know.
Or get a leather punch that costs 9$
Tried my best to measure with a ruler at work, here's what I found:

For belts, have you considered ordering custom-made ones such as from this site? Alternatively there are guides for making your own that can be found in /r/malefashionadvice and it seems to be pretty easy and cost-effective. I also love my leather hole punch, which I got for less than $10 on Amazon. Hope you find that helpful!
All you need is a hole punch and an eyelet setter. I use 3/16" eyelets which are a little on the smaller side but still fit most leather laces.
Kind of looks like a leather punch to me.
The one I am linking to rotates, however.
Hey bud... get one of these for the next time you want to punch a hole in your leather. Not expensive and makes a much cleaner cut for the leather!
PM me you address and I'll send you one of these.
try this one
I bought it about a month ago, did the job well on 4 different belt so far, super easy.
For nicer, neater holes
With one of these
This is how you're supposed to do it -
Get a leather hole punch for best results, they are cheap. I've cut down a couple belts. Then I just used a pair of good scissors to trim off the excess leather.
Even better solution
Ideally you should use something like this.
might have to make 2 holes side by side. if you Cut the rubber, it will continue to rip along that cut and tear. If you use a hole punch you are creating a round hole and it has no place to tear.
If you have a farm store or hardware store close by where you live they might have one on the shelf.
I would suggest this kind of device http://www.amazon.com/SE-7924LP-Heavy-Duty-Leather-Punch/dp/B000NK5VY2 better them knife cause it doesn't tear material as much so holes might stay (read not completely tear) longer.
You can then reinforce holes with this http://m.instructables.com/id/Reinforced-fabric-hole-Old-style-button-hole-or-ey/
Nice work, really well done.

I have a wierd plan (perhaps) to get this and continue to use my belt until I hit my goal weight. I am on my last hole now, after being down to the second to last one on the other end of the belt.
