I respectfully disagree. You need a solid, somewhat stiff belt to hold up a pistol of decent size. When you need that gun you don't want the holster to come up with the gun for even the first inch of pull.
A good gun belt is just as, if not more, important than a good holster.
I have been wearing a Crossbreed Supertuck on a 5.11 casual leather belt for years. It is the best of all worlds for me. Leather against my body, kydex to keep the gun protected and easy for 1 handed draw and 1 handed return, as well as a good stiff belt that doesn't look like a tactical belt and scream "GUN!"
I have one in brown and one in black. I paid less than $50 for both.
