I wear dress khaki's and carry at work.  I had been using a CTAC, but recently changed my carry piece to a P2000sk in a BladeTech UCH holster.  With the design of the UCH, I now understand why people spend the coinage on a good gun/carry belt.  My current leather dress belt is not cutting it.  Would the hive be willing to offer me their thoughts and experiences?  I need something that is somewhat dressy or at least does not look the part.

Everything from bull hide to elephant to shark.  You can get as dressy as you need and not worry about the belt doing its' job.  it's the only belt I have worn for years.

I use a CompTac Kydex reinforced belt, its 1/2 inch wide,and had been a very good belt.  I wear it every day (teacher, w/o gun) and no one takes notice. It looks just like any other belt except it is a little thicker.  
When I carry a gun it is normally a defender or a DW CBOB, the reinforced belt makes a huge difference,  used to just use a plain belt and I was constantly pulling up my pants, and in general it was very uncomfortable.

The 1 1/2" CompTac Kydex reinforced belt it the most comfortable and solid gun belt I've owned in 40 years but to be honest, it isn't  dressy.

If you need a dressier gun belt you'd probably be better off with a Milt Sparks.

I'll also plug the Comp-Tac Kydex reinforced belt. I've got the black no-taper model and love it. If you go for a tapered model, it will make it look even dressier––I wish I had. My dad just got a black one with a taper from 1.5" down to 1.0". It looks very dressy and not like a "gun belt" at all.

Thanks; I didn't know that I have an obviously incorrect bias against tapered belts.

I like my Liger belt - though it's more "business casual"...

I didn't like them at all either and wouldn't even consider it when I ordered mine. When my father got his and I got to looking at it, my mind was changed.

I just got my Instructor belt from Wilderness Tactical with added CSM polymer.  This is the stiffest belt I have ever had.  It holds up my 1911 and two mags with no trouble.  I definitely recommend them.

The Wilderness Instructor's belt is a great belt, but it doesn't have that dressy, wear-with-khakis look that would fit in a office environment. I think you've got to go leather for that.

Crossbreed's belt is awesome and reasonably priced.  

I love mine.
