Belts - in a larger size

Any suggestions on where to get a good quality dress belt in a 48-50?

Online it does not seem that the places most often talked about on here carry my size. And the quality from many of the other places just is not there.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions (short of loosing weight - clearly that I have thought of).

the problem is that a leather hide only comes 48 in long and they need the extra 2in to finish the belt. So since your bigger than a cow there's nothing you can do.

Yes it is true (although I do not know the dimensions exactly) there is a point where they cannot make from one piece of leather the large sizes needed.

Although why it was necessary to say the cow line is beyond me.

Thank you for the constructive responses and if I actually had a self image problem I might be offended by the small minded shot. Funny thing is my original email asked about 48-50...

I was not poking fun at your post, but was rather telling the guy with the snarky comment that it's not nice to talk about his wife on a public forum.

Thanks...already placed and order for a full leather strap and dress belt from Sole Survivor but will keep the link you sent as well.

Thank you again to those who were actually constructive with their response.

Have watched postings here for a number of weeks - fully expected the kind of response both good and bad. Some only feel good while they can put others down - lived my life with it. I am comfortable in my own skin - which is in fact larger than many cows. I do love a good piece of beef.
