I am trying to decide on the best belt width to order from Leather Goods Connection. The belt will only be worn with jeans.

Is 1 1/2" or 1 3/4" a better option? Which do you prefer (with jeans)?

I'd go 1 3/4 if you're exclusively wearing it with jeans.

As a rule of thumb, wider belts look better with jeans. Only time I can think of where a slim jeans belt is better is when you try for the Dior Homme waifish look.

A quality 1 1/2 belt will support a holster just fine. This guy sells cheap belts.

I vote for 1.75" (or even 2" if you use your own buckle.)
