I ordered one from Al at agcustomgunleather. Very well constructed, sturdy belt. I use it with my Crossbreed Supertuck when I carry my DW CBOB. Still waiting on my C5 Montana XLT to try out as well. Check em out.

Second the 5.11...they're plenty stiff and not too expensive. I got mine on this deal: 5.11 Tactical Covert Khaki Pants plus FREE SHIPPING at LA Police Gear. 5.11 covert pants, 511 covert pant, 5.11, 511 Tactical.
My wife is able to hem the legs to fit as my actual size was sold out. The pants are good too. You can get the belts on a screaming deal if your size is XL or larger (see:http://www.lapolicegear.com/511-tact...-closeout.html) and, no, I don't work for them. It's just a heck of a deal IMO.
Choice of tan, tan, or tan. The price is certainly right!
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
Bit of advice. Don't pinch pennies when it comes to equipment. If you have enough money for a gun, a holster, ammunition, fees for CC classes, etc., you have enough money for a quality belt. If you absolutely cannot come up with the money, I would trade my current firearm for a S&W J Frame (if you don't have one already) install a set of Barhami hip grips and carry it in my waistband. You'd be the best armed skinflint in town. That's how I carry mine when I go down to the Day Old Bread Store. All kidding aside, it would be tragic if you were to be hurt all because you wanted to save 20 or 30 bucks. Buy decent stuff, get good with it, watch over the citizenry. The way things are going it's going to pretty much be our responsibility anyway.

This is great. You have all given me so many places to look. Keep the info coming. I can surely use it. I appreciate everybody's help.
I saw semi-recently (either here or another forum) mention of belts available at Tractor Supply Co. stores. I picked up one just last weekend, Schmidt's Workwear. Inch-and-a-half, nice and heavy, $20.
So far so good for me (and my EDC is 2.5#, so . . .)

Ok, I am going to respond to my own post. What if I decided to spend more money and not skimp like fletcher said. I came across some really nice looking dress belts by The Belt Man. What are the opinions of these belts. I know they are more money but there must be a reason. Help please.
Like booyah said, it may take a while to get yours. I love mine, but only wear it when I need to dress up and tuck in my shirt exposing my belt. Now, if you want a good belt but dont really care too much what its going to look like (most likely because your shirt will be covering it) then go with the Wilderness Instructor belt. This belt is very comfortable and ridged. Spend the extra money and get the CSM insert and you have the stiffest belt made. Depending on your firearm, you might not need it that stiff but it will never sag either. I carry a HEAVY firearm and its almost like its not even there. A good quality holster and belt, you can confidently hide any firearm (within reason!) on your person with comfort. Spend the money and get what will serve you a long time and is of the best quality on the market. Either Beltman, or Wilderness Instructor. (I personally like the WI)
