By “everywhere” I am assuming that you really mean “ratty ol’ department stores”, because if you did look everywhere you would have noticed that there are a bucketful of awesome men’s stores in your area that stock tonnes of good leather belts, not a single one of which is cheesy. And, even better, those men’s stores tend to come complete with a competent sales staff that can set you up with just the belt you need.
However, if finding a men’s store that you like and spending some time with the staff is just too much work for you, here is a fun and easy shortcut: Find a girl who dresses well, and ask her where she would go for a leather purse. It’s pretty much guaranteed that the place she gets her bags will also have belts for you. Better yet, talk her into going along and you get a triple-threat situation going on: Time spent with a well dressed babe, her thinking that you are the kind of guy who cares about quality and style, and a spiffy new belt. That’s win, win, and win.
