    Looking for a new leather belt. Opinions on these choices?

    Hi y'all. I'm looking for a new belt. It has to be leather, it has to be brown, and it has to be a size 36. I'd prefer basketweave but that's not a deal breaker if the better belt doesn't have it. I have a Bianchi B8 now that's 3 or 4 years old. It doesn't fit right anymore. It's too big and somewhat stretched. The belts I've narrowed it down to are as follows:

    Bianchi B4 Ranger Belt - Basket Tan, Brass, Waist Size 36in, 12084 FREE S&H 12084. Bianchi Belts.

    Bianchi B9 Fancy Stitched Belt - Plain Tan/Suede, Brass, Waist Size 36in, 12291 FREE S&H 12291. Bianchi Belts.

    BlackHawk 1.75in Gun Belt FREE S&H 410334TBN, 410342TBN, 410336TBN, 410340TBN, 410344TBN, 410332TBN. BlackHawk Belts.

    DeSantis Tan - Basketweave Belt 1 3/4" Wide B08TG36Z0 FREE S&H B08TG36Z0. DeSantis Style B08 Belts, DeSantis Belts.

    DeSantis Tan - Fancy Stitch Belt 1 3/4" Wide B02TP36Z0 FREE S&H B02TP36Z0. DeSantis Style B02 Belts, DeSantis Belts.


    If I didn't think things through so much I'd have already been wearing the belt. However, I try to gather as much info as possible before spending this much money on a belt. I will say, the Bianchi B9 is actually more than I intended to spend but, it is do-able.

    Thanks,
    Joel

    They will all work for carrying a firearm. There are lots of options out there. Most holster makers also do belts. Then there's places like Beltman. At the end of the day, you're going to have to deide what YOU like. It will probably be different then what I would pick.

    After reading my post, I see that I wasn't exactly clear on what I meant. Between the brands mentioned, do y'all have experience or opinions on the quality of the belts.

    I like the De Santis line. Have had one for more than a year now. I also have the Don Hume leather belt from Midway USA.

    I've got a Bianchi. They are well made, but run small. I'd suggest ordering a size larger then you normally would.

    I'm wearing a Bianchi now in size 38. I'm on the last hole and figured I'd order a size 36 this time. Would that be the wrong size to order?

    Maybe they are different. The one and only one that I have, I ordered one size larger then my normal size, and it is small. Maybe it was mismarked? It works well for OWB, but is to small for IWB.

    I'd just like to throw a teeny monkey wrench into your thoughts.
    I am a huge fan of the Aker belts. I like the Concealed Carry belt, but they have many others if you want something fancier.

    The normal recommendation for size is...
    For OWB, order 2" larger than a non-carry belt.
    For IWB, order 2" larger than that.
