What is your normal dress attire? Since I retired, I normally wear jeans, and a button-down dress shirt. When I was working, it was Dockers, and dress shirts.

I found the Galco COP CSB7 belt was perfect, if you don't want to look like G.I. Joe, or Wyatt Earp!

I've seen people mention the thickness of their belt being a 1/4" thick. There is no way the clips on my holster would fit that thick of a belt. So you'll want to keep that in mind when buying a belt. My Ted Blocker Holsters Belt H has a steel core and is right at 1/8 of an inch thick and very sturdy without having to be really thick.

I'm wearing a Filson Ranger belt. It does the job, but the Tucker Ranger belt has my salivary glands working overtime. It is what I call utilitarian art. Will probably spring for one in the near future. Always have worn Ranger style belts with nice western buckle and keepers.
