I picked up the teardrop belt (http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/mens-teardrop-chino-belt~229760_-1.html) for $28 this week. Would have liked it a bit wider and I'd have preferred a standard closure. But the colour is great and the leather, which is really soft and supple, is the nicest I've ever felt in a belt (not that that is saying much though).
I just got mine and it fits a bit big for me. But it is much nicer in person than the pics on the web and was a steal at $6.75.
Try doing Starting Strength instead of StrongLifts. Similar programs except Mark Rippetoe actually knows about training unlike Mehdi who knows more about SEO. When it comes to footwear for squatting, a slightly elevated heel is optimal but a firm sole is mandatory. Weight training shoes > Chucks > running shoes. The best analogy for squatting in a running shoes is that it is like squatting on a mattress. You want a firm surface to keep you stable.

Starting Strength. Squats and deadlifts aren't an issue with your shoulders. Overhead pressing will build up the strength in your shoulders so they're less likely to pop out. I'd skip the bench pressing until you've got sufficient strength and stability in your shoulders from overhead pressing.

And even then, I'm no hunter so they look at me strange. What is the back pocket on the Field Mechanic's jacket really for? If someone asked me, I'd just tell...
