I need some help from my business workers. I work in a place that I'm in a suit or dress pants and tie 6 days a week. I currently use a galco belt and summer holster. Well a buddy told me to try a maxtuck and from what I read it was love at first sight. They have awesome customer service and in my line of work that means everything to me. My problem is that I really need a dress belt and none of my local shops in the area carry a big selection that I'm aware of. Can you all give me some advice on makers and why you wear that particular belt?

Check out the NRA store. The Latigo type is what I use.

I'm assuming you are referring to White Hat holsters "MaxTuck" holster. They are a relatively new maker, so it's nice to give a link for those not familiar with their product line.

Since I'm one not that familiar with their line-up, are they only available with metal clips? If so, they will quickly scratch a leather belt. Leather loops and to a lesser extent kydex clips, if they are available, will be less likely to mar a dress belt.

Mitch Rosen is generally regarded as one of the "dressier" gun belt makers.

Actually I ordered a set of j clips also. Again they worned me about the wear with some great customer service. Thanks for the warning though aight the scratches. They do sell 5.11 belts. I'll look at the sites you mentioned. Again thanks for the replies.

You don't say what kind of pistol you are carrying, but remember a J-Clip will put the weight of the pistol on your pants waistband and not on the belt. You may have trouble if you are carrying a heavy pistol. However, if you look at the Alessi site, their Talon clips ride over the waist band and under the belt. They are a well regarded maker, but for a heavy gun I'd rather have clips or loops ride over the belt.

Here is High Noon's take on the J-Clip.

I think Galco offers dressier belts than anything in the 5.11 line-up.

Galco does make some nicer looking dress belts, for a pretty decent price. Around $50 if I remember right. Try opticsplanet.com, they've got a pretty good selection with great prices. I just ordered a Galco belt from them 2 weeks ago.

Take a look at www.abetterbeltusa.com (I think I typed that right.) I bought 2 double-thickness dress belts from them last month for a good price. Custom work & just as good as belts I've paid twice as much for, plus personal service from the owners.

I bought one of these. I use it more often than not with an IWB as OWB is a bit hard to do without a coat, but I have the option of just using the belt and it works rather well, fitted for my Ruger P guns, also works with a few other of my autos that are smaller. One thing, if you do use the belt holster, it's not a one hand holster operation, kinda a PITA to get holstered. Danged good quality leather gunbelt, though.
