I've bought numerous different types & styles of cc leather holsters over the years, & have found that a holster made by "The Holster Store", called the "Comfort Deep Carry" holster, if I remember correctly, is by far the best holster I've ever owned, although its not the fanciest or best looking. It's got two leather straps, with very strong metal snaps. It's made to hold your handgun very low, inside the waistband, while still allowing quick, easy access. (I find I really prefer this set up, as opposed to what I find to be clumsy & often not very reliable, metal clip style holsters). Also, it can easily be put on quickly with your belt already on. I carry in the "cross draw" position, & still have easy access my gun.
I usually carry my .38 S&W with me, often while engaged in physically active work, training working cow dogs, gathering cattle on horseback, or four wheeling in the back country, far from any assistance, (let alone cell reception), so I need to have a reliable, comfortable holster that can be worn all day, with excellent retention. I recently had a new holster built, to carry a different weapon, & had it modified with a 15% angle in the cant, (even though my favorite holster has a straight cant, & works very well), to allow for my cross draw carry style, & was very disappointed with the holster. It rides far too high on the waist, & my gun, (during several 'pre-carry' practices), fell out of the holster very easily.
It's now on top of the pile of other useless holsters in my closet.
Good luck with your search.
