What belt, leather, do you use for your everyday carry.
I dont need fancy, I need a workhorse, it'll get sweated out almost everyday in the summer, so it needs to be durable.

I wear an Original Instructor Belt by Wilderness Tactical. Not leather but it has lasted me 8 years.

I love the Comp-Tac with the tapered ends so that it goes to a normal width up front

Wilderness Instructor Belt with a plastic insert, which really makes is stiffer, but not uncomfortable.

A Better Belt USA. They’re out of Houston. Solid gun belts, and fantastic customer service.

Hanks Belts are made in USA and guaranteed 100 years and are fair priced. Great quality as well, take a look at them.

Never had a leather belt hold up more than a year. I prefer the Magpul belts for under the duty belt and off duty carry. I carry full-size guns off duty and they don’t flex under the weight

I run a double layered black leather belt, 1.5". They are very durable and stiff. I bought an extra one for my brother, and he swears by it also. I don't recall the brand.

I have an older Crossbreed 1-1/2" that I've worn almost daily for 6 years and it's still good as new and no sag. Looks like the one they call the Classic on their website. I believe mine is double bull hide but I don't see options like that currently.

I'm a big guy. So, I need a stout belt. I've worn the same Big Foot steel core belt for over 3 years every day. It's still in great shape, and holds for firearm snug.

If you have your heart set on leather, I'd recommend one with a Kydex insert. It will increase rigidity and comfort under load, and last longer without stretching

Had a couple from bullhidebelts.com , no complaints. They have a bunch of styles too if you are into fancy belts.

Currently wearing 5.11 Double Duty TDU belts. Have one in 1.5” and one in 1.75”. Bought one when I was flying a lot several years ago, just for airport security reasons (no metal). Liked it so much I bought the wider version as well. No issues carrying any of my pistols. Range in size from S&W Shield to Glock 19, both OWB and IWB.

I've used the same Safariland leather garrison belt since 2008. It holds my Glock 35, cuffs, mags, radio and light. It shows no sign of quitting.

I should add Made in USA if that matters to you. I believe all 5.11 is Made in China.
