Some Allen Edmonds belts are on sale at Nordstrom's right now (Trafalgar is too). Our local Nordstrom had AE belts in tan, chili, dark brown, and black.

I suggest a belt which is red on one side and blue on the other to match your shoes.

OH MAN. Kalra. you are sooo witty.  OUCH. I bet ernest feels lame now. Seriously, grow up.  You are displaying an obvious lack of manners, maturity, and good upbringing.
Okay okay

VM, I stand corrected. I really hate your $1 belt (sorry) but that tooled black one is pretty cool. I'd probably switch out to a more interesting buckle, but the tooling is very interesting, and the leather is probably terrific. At $11, I probably would've bought 2 and used the extra one in some kind of art project (I've been toying with the idea of doing my own felt appliques on American Apparel long sleeve tees recently.)

I figured that the preppy blue-stripe belt wouldn't appeal to someone with a mostly PDC taste as yourself. For $1, I couldn't pass it up. I think we share a similar style - lots of PDC, unique items, attention to details, etc. However, I figured the belt would be a nice addition to a 'preppy' get-up that I do wear once every couple of months. Hell, it would be covered up unless my shirt was tucked in anyway. I am kicking myself for not picking up another black tooled belt. I got that for $11, but maybe four weeks after I purchased it, they had another in the exact same size that had gone down to $5 on clearance. I love that belt, and it would be really cool to try and switch in a vintage buckle. The leather is actually great, I believe that belt originally retailed for $75-$90, so the quality is decent. Much better than, say, the Joseph Abboud and Jhane Barnes belts that retail in the same price bracket.

Thanks for all the help, the Trafalgar belts look like my best bet.  I could actually use 2 dark brown belts (I have another dark brown pair of dress shoes), so I might pick up the Trafalgar to wear with the dress shoes and try to find another one for the loafers. LabelKing: you mentioned Gucci does matching items, and I could've sworn I saw a belt to match these at NM, but alas, there wasn't one at the store (although with Last Call, there isn't much of anything) and there isn't one online.  Same with Saks.  Would my best bet be to phone my local Gucci boutique or is there somewhere online you think I could find it?  Been working a lot of long hours and weekends lately, so I don't know if I'll have time to make it to Bal Harbour or Worth Ave. anytime soon. Thanks again for all the helpful replies.
Online your options might be the Saks or Neimans. However they have a limited choice so I think that the Gucci bouqiue would be your best option. Other online places to acquire Gucci tend to be discount stores which not neccesarily fake tend to inflate prices.
