I was going to reply on the "Galco Belt" thread, but why confuse header topics if you don't have to?

Lou, is there any way you could post a photo of your gun belt? I'd love to see one.

I've got a couple of Sparks belts (both 1-1/4"), a shark/silver for dress wear and plain black for range duty. I like 'em both, but they are a tad thick, especially with dress slacks. My wife tells me that I'm the only one who'll notice. She's probably right :smile:. Anyway, I'm always on the lookout for high quality leather gear and would love to see the Alessi.

Thanks!
Chad

Just thought I would give Alessi products a plug. Two days ago the 1.5" tapered gun belt I ordered came in UPS. Good looking belt! It had been a long time since my last gun belt purchase (sort of spread out of my Kramer) and I had forgotten how good they feel. Being wearing it a couple of days, my pants stay in place (been a while for that also), and I now only have to get my holster in for it.

For those that have not dealt with the company and the man, your in for a treat. Its not often these days you deal with a company operated in what I consider old school (a real treat). You know, a man's word is his bond and a handshake is all it takes to have a deal.

I bet you did not realize that Alessi Leather was a full service company, did you? :lol: Well the pants were not a problem a few years back but my how somethings change.

I had not realized the problem was so bad until a complaint was filed with the Personnel Department, the Police showed up, and they tried to arrest me for having crack in my possession. I took some explaining, but I finally got them to understand we were discussing the wrong crack! :roll: :roll:

Dear Lou,
Any way you can post it on the site so we can all see?

Also, my casual belts (non-carry belts) are all about 1.25" (my dress belts are even thinner for my suits) but it seems that 1.5" is the one most ordered. Is this the best size for stability or is it just a popular size?

Hoser, We actually sell more 1-1/4" belts than the 1-1/2". The wider belt does go better with jeans, but I find myself wearing a 1-1/4" belt most of the time. The 1-1/2" does provide more stability, but I've never had a problem with the narrower dress belts that we make.
I'll try to get a picture up for you.
Thanks,
Lou

Lou's 1 1/2" belts are the only ones I'll wear. Every day, all day. I really do think the extra quarter inch width improves gun stability (and thereby, comfort) significantly. I have two each in black and brown (holsters and mag pouches to match, of course), just to be sure I'm always color-coordinated. They're finished like dress belts, but truly work for daily CCW. Lou's stuff is the best leather gear there is, period, IMNSHO. Best.

Some of you thinner fellows may not find this information useful but speaking to the fat boys, I find the wider belt more comfortable. I bought the 1.25" belt first because my day to day slacks wouldn't fit anything wider. And then I went and got different pants! :smile:

This brings to mind a funny story. Last weekend I went with some friends to Dave & Busters which for those of you who don't know is like a cross between a casino and an video arcade for adults (they even kick the young'uns out at ten o'clock!) Any how, I was disarmed due to the quirks of my state's laws but I was still wearing my Alessi belt with my khaki shorts. Well the birthday boy came back from the jakes clutching his shorts and told his girlfriend that he'd need to be excused to go get more shorts. The button had popped off and he wasn't wearing a belt. Well at first we just laughed at the guy and he had the grace to chuckle at his own misfortune as well! While everybody else was trying to figure out where the nearest WalMart was I asked if his shorts had belt loops. Sure enough they did (and why he was not wearing a belt I don't know) so we went back to the men's room to let him borrow my belt. (It's a good thing I wasn't carrying because I've been using a Hideout lately rather than a holster with one of Lou's patented Talon Clips!) Well, the evening was saved thanks to one of Alessi's great belts!

Goodness Lou,

I really didn't expect a personal e-mail with a photo of your belt. Thank you.

Although, this does present the opportunity to express my gratitude to you
personally regarding the double mag pouch and the outstanding holster I
received TODAY (the new permanent home for my Brig 96). Just marvelous. It
feels like I've been using it for years.

In regards to your belts, I have no doubt I will be pleased when I receive the
one I ordered on Tuesday from Ray @ RFholsters

I s**t you not, I'll be bragging about your fit 'n finish for a long while to come.

You've got MY undevided business.

Regards,
Vladimir Rumac.

Have you figured why I'm feeling so happy tonite. You know, guys never grow up. Their toys just get bigger.

Thanks again Lou.
