I ordered my 1 1/4 in. belt on Wed. and received it 4 days later. What fast service!! This was not an "already made" belt. I know because I asked Ken to do a little extra. Though I intend it primarily for casual wear, it does support a light carry. If you want a standard carry belt, I recommend a 1 1/2 in. Ken, thanks for a great job. This is one fine belt!
