Help me replace my favorite belt!

As you can see from the photo, my belt of choice is well loved and in need of a replacement. Here's the problem - I stole it from my Dad, and he has no idea where it came from. All of the info stamped on the back of the buckle part is worn beyond readability; I've yet to see a belt like it in a store; and although this is the closest thing I can find online, I really don't like how the leather trim is thinner than the belt itself and I much prefer my pointed edges to its round ones. Any ideas?

I would describe it as a cotton web and leather belt. L.L. Bean has this one, but it's hard to get an idea of what it looks like.

An army surplus store might be a good place to check.

Your belt looks stretchy, so I did a search for "stretch leather belt". Looks like Orvis has a number of options. The one linked doesn't come in navy. The search term "stretch web belt" might also help you.

Web was the word I was looking for. Thanks, guys!

Bob's Belts has one that's similar, except the brown leather is a little lighter.

Google "surcingle belt." For example. Is yours wool or cotton?
