    Not sure what size you wear, but I have a 36" Aker I have outgrown. It'll fit a 32-33" waist size perfectly. I am now a 34. It's a 1.25" reinforced dress/gun belt. Black. I wear A suit or dress pants every day and it fits every pair of suit pants I own.

    Great guys, great belts.

    Just got a belt from Bullhide Belts - don't like it, plan on sending it back - the leather is cracked on the back.

    Can't buy all new pants.

    So I'm looking for
    1) 1.25 to 1.5 belt
    2) single layer of leather or single layer of leather with some sort of 'plastic' reinforcement (webbing would be a DISTANT third choice)
    3) really don't want the 'tacticool' look and it wouldn't fit it where I work

    Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Filson makes a nice belt

    I have a Galco dress belt and it's great if you need the super stiff reinforced style of that belt. I liked it because it will be durable however I get tired of threading a stiff belt with minimum flexibility into my pants. I have recently (4 months ago) purchased a leather belt from Filson. It's a black 1-1/2" model that they make out of bridle leather (whatever that is?) and it has held up great so far. Now I normally pocket carry, so I'm actually looking for some dress slacks or khakis that have reinforced pockets for pocket carry (LCP) but I think this belt would hold up to small to medium size guns carried IWB or OWB too. One thing I've noticed is that I tend to wear my belt rather snug, so on cheaper belts the holes tend to open up a little and the ones on this belt have not opened up AT ALL. Good luck.

    I'll second the Blackhawk belt, a lot of people cringe at the mention of Blackhawk but I have one and it has served me well for almost a year of 5 day a week wear. I work in a corporate environment so I have to wear nice clothes usually and although I don't carry in the office usually, I still wear my CCW belt in case I decide to put my weapon on.

    You may wish to consider this....I was told it was not a good gun belt but after going and looking for myself and trying it on with cc weapon in owb leather holster I can tell you it is a good gun belt. stiff but not inflexible and will fit fine for the trousers you are wearing...I have tons of Dockers and dress slacks and this belt is perfect. No slag or slack. Well made.

    I'll second this one. I wear mine daily, with anything from jeans to dress pants, iwb, owb, supertuck. Probably about 1-1/2 years old and still holding up well.

    +1 on AG custom Gun Leather. I buy the 1 1/4" belts and they are absolutely superb. Double layered, firm but not so firm that they are inflexible. The best belts I have purchased in 30+ years of concealed carry.

    Perhaps not, but you can re-do the belt loops on most pants. And if the choice is having an inferior gun belt or making some other accommodation, adjustment of the loops might well be all you need to do. Plus, doing that gives you an opportunity to have the loops be in your preferred spot and as wide as you'd like, as well as allowing for a belt of the given size (ie, 1.5" wide) you want.

    In future, of course, as you swap out the old and purchase new, replacement, clothing, do so with an eye to allowing for effective concealment.

    Another user of A&G Custom Gun Leather. Al is a great guy to deal with and I use his 1.25' belts for business attire carry.

    I have several of his belts and have used them for years.

    I use a dress gun belt from The Beltman for everything from business attire to casual wear, to even duty use. Does it all.
