Need A Nice Belt Strap

So my Shane buckles came in today and while the straps are nice looking, you can definitely tell they're an afterthought as they're really quite cheaply made (if I had payed full price I might be a little peeved).

Does anyone know where I can get a good strap? I know people love the EG quick release belt, but all I hear are raves about the buckle. How about the strap? I thought about getting a Red Moon via coldrice last month, but passed.

Any takers? It doesn't have to be Henry Cuir or anything on that level, but I want one that is nice enough to compliment the amazing buckles.

I am getting a strap HERE to use with the EG buckle. No experience with this company, but the belts are bridle leather and they seem serious about their leather goods...

Shoreman-----those don't have a detachable penis, er, buckle; they are $35 bucks on eBay; a gaggle of them, even.

They claim to. From the website:
2 brass snaps allow penis, er, buckle to be replaced
Of course, I'd be using a different, longer type buckle, but I'll just get a shorter belt. I think they only have brown, though. Someone around here was ordering custom bridle leather belts awhile back. I don't remember who, but the product looked nice and was pretty reasonable, IIRC.

I ordered a Natural leather belt from Marakesh Leather in Seattle and love it. I also ordered a distressed brown belt from them which is nice as well.

If you live in a city, check out your local leather shop. Here in NYC the village tannery will make you a belt out of about 30 leather choices.

My favorite suggestion thus far. I'm heading up there for the Jens Lekman show on the 21st, so I'll definitely have to check it out.

And thanks so much for the suggestions guys and keep them coming, I really appreciate it.
