Would also recommend RLPL belts. Their made in Italy belts are some of the best I've owned. Not sure who makes them. Added plus is that they're offered in colors that are ordinarily hard to find in belts: light tans and mochas, etc. These are the belts I reach for when I need to approximate the hue on my lighter toned shoes.

agreed about the thick leather. i only own the casual belts but perhaps the lined and raised belt could be more appropriate?

i don't actually own the above but if you email Charlie at equus he might be able to customize something. just a thought...

Yes great belts. I also have three. I would not describe the bridle leather as 'rustic' though. It is fine with suits and formal trousers. Sedgewick leather is absolute top quality

The belts are great value compared to other offerings.

I have had this same experience. Also the leather is a bit stiff.

I think Dingman are great.

I bought a belt from Narragassett Leather (ordered by phone, but they have a website). I think it's great, and it was only 40 dollars. It was recommended on Putthison.com

I have a wallet from Tanner Goods, quality is nice so I am assuming that their belts would just be as nice.

For a casual belt, or jeans type belts I can find no better than Orion Belts. They are top grain made in the USA. I really like the Show Harness leather. The black ones are fine but they really excel in browns. Prices are quite reasonable too.

The website is ugly but the belts are great.

Longhi makes great belts. Wish I had more.

I had belts from Polo Ralph Lauren (OK, but not great) and Hugo Boss (waste of money)

I now have belts from Allen Edmonds, which are not bad. My favorites are, however, belts from Crockett & Jones as well as a mtm-belt I had made by Kreis http://shop.kreis-ledermanufaktur.de/index.php?id=3&no_cache=1 (website is in German - this might help http://dict.leo.org/)

How well did your Polo belt hold up? I recently bought a Polo belt, so I am curious. Are they corrected-grain leather?

They actually sell their belts on Amazon now. I picked one up last week and it's definitely a nice piece of leather.

A 1.25" English Bridle Leather belt seems like it would work fine as a dress belt as well. They are quite thick (3/16"-1/4") does that knock them out of the dress belt category?

Practically, they are a bit heavy to wear as a dress belt. You definitely know you are wearing it. Great for jeans and boots.
