    My EDC includes a Bullhide Belts leather money belt to support (usually) a 1911 in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II. I love the money belt, as it allows me to always have some cash with me, along with photocopies of my DL, CWP, and the front pages of my passport.

    Unfortunately, I have to dress up occasionally, and my belt is brown, casual, and 1.5" wide. I have been searching in vain for a black 1.25" dress belt that:
    1. Has a money compartment, and;
    2. Will support a holstered alloy-framed 1911, plus all the stuff in my pockets (cell phone, knife, flashlight, wallet, spare magazine).

    I can find 1.25" gun belts, or 1.25" money belts, but not a 1.25" gun money belt.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on where I might find such a beast, or a craftsman willing to custom make one (preferably without a 6+ month wait)?

    I might be able to help you out with this. I wouldn't call it a unicorn belt but just finding the right person to make you what you want.

    Try Rob Longenecker at Tucker Gun Leather. He may be interested in the exercise! All he can say is no! He's a good guy to deal with.

    Also might try Brad Farnsworth from Bear River Holsters, in Tremont, UTah. He makes some fine holsters, and belts for a reasonable price too
