    I'm also interested in suggestions. Also, is it weird to wear nice croc belts with raw denim?

    I'd start with asking this in the small questions thread instead of making a new post.

    If you're in SF you can drop by Self Edge, we've got at least 10 styles of thick leather belts:

    I got one from Zissou(not sure if he still makes them you'd have to ask). It's been absolutely awesome. I've worn it daily for well over a year now. Has an awesome patina, as does the wallet I got from him.

    Self Edge always has a good selection. The other place would be Union Made. I think that they carry Yuketen cordovan belts, which are the tits.

    The thing about making your belt is that it takes a lot of time and practice to get to the same level as the guys who do it for a living. Not to mention the oils, dyes, tools, and nic-naks that are involved in just making a simple belt. But by all means try, I started making belts as a side hobby and I've slowly gotten all of the tools. Tandy has good leather but you should really go to the shop to pick your own leather first hand (only if with reason of course). Or get your leather sides from an actual tannery.
