    My Great Uncle cut this buckle off a German soldier during The War and brought it back for my Grandfather, who wore it through High School and beyond. He later passed it to me and I found a company that made Luftwaffle belts to mount said buckle on and have worn it regularly since.

    The front side was ground down before it could be brought back into the county but the back back still shows the engraving in full detail.


    So much for that, the forum isn't playing nice with any image hosting sites apparently.

    I've got a bunch of belts in the closet but the two I wear 98% of the time are one from The Wilderness and one from Little Bear Custom Holsters. Actually these days it's the Little Bear probably 90% of the time.

    I just bought an old school scouting belt as I like the way the clasp holds. Does anyone else have or use this design.

    My everyday belt for work and carry is a trayvax cinch belt. My dress belt is a lore essentials belt.

    That one came from Japan. I bought it via the Rakuten webstore. It's a 45mm belt (1.75").

    I bought a Hank's belt, in black, about 6 months ago. It's a gun belt, but I don't own a firearm. It's stiff, which I wanted for carrying my skinth. I like it a lot. The model is called Gunner Stitched. It can be worn dress or casual. I liked it enough where I bought another in a honey brown color. I'd recommend them. About $50 each

    I just got a KORE gun belt. I’m impressed with the construction of the ratchet buckle and the quality and stiffness of the belt. It’s very easy to adjust the size when wearing it and the ratchet buckle system allows for infinite adjustments when wearing it. It supports a gun very well and appears that it will continue to do so for a long time.

    I’ve been wearing my 5.11 Trainer Belt and the Alien Gear belt in black for over 2 years. Both have held up well and are well worth the money.

    I've been wearing leather belts since years, but switched to outdoor (nylon) belts a couple of years ago.

    For some years a Jack Wolfskin (German brand) outdoor belt with a metal belt buckle was doing a good job, but the metal started to pitch my belly when sitting down. Instead of going on a diet :giggle: I switched to another outdoor nylon belt (can't remember the type/brand) that has a plastic belt buckle. It's comfy, airport safe (until I wear a tucked in shirt and the security officer insists that I need to put my belt through the scanner despite I tell him it's plastic :mad: and will not raise the person scanner alarm), and can be seamlessly adjusted (no belt wholes to fit) - also I'm not sure if this really helps with staying in shape ... at least it keeps my pants from falling down.

    I also switched from a Wilderness to a Graith. I really like the lower profile buckle for AIWB carry.

    Wow, there are some incredible belts. My latest addition to mine was a grip 6 belt. It’s a really minimalistic belt. Easy to adjust, works well with IWB or OWB holsters.

    Varusteleka Tactical Jeans are my go to pants at the moment. What's unique about these is the fact that they look unassuming, but there's more than meets the eye. The cut and material offer mobility unmatched by any casual trousers, and extra pockets are hidden in plain sight to keep things available for grabs. The special features are so sleek that if you don't use them, you won't notice them either.
