    I bought a belt from Narragassett Leather (ordered by phone, but they have a website). I think it's great, and it was only 40 dollars. It was recommended on Putthison.com

    I have a wallet from Tanner Goods, quality is nice so I am assuming that their belts would just be as nice.

    For a casual belt, or jeans type belts I can find no better than Orion Belts. They are top grain made in the USA. I really like the Show Harness leather. The black ones are fine but they really excel in browns. Prices are quite reasonable too.

    The website is ugly but the belts are great.

    How well did your Polo belt hold up? I recently bought a Polo belt, so I am curious. Are they corrected-grain leather?

    Quote:They actually sell their belts on Amazon now. I picked one up last week and it's definitely a nice piece of leather. A 1.25" English Bridle Leather belt seems like it would work fine as a dress belt as well. They are quite thick (3/16"-1/4") does that knock them out of the dress belt category?

    Practically, they are a bit heavy to wear as a dress belt. You definitely know you are wearing it. Great for jeans and boots.

    The pinnacle, in my opinion, is Equus. I would put them up against anyone, period. That being said, the RL Purple made in Italy are pretty fantastic as well.

    Rancourt makes great belts. I love my CXL belt, and their shell cordovan belts look fantastic
