Take a look at the 5.11 belt which is made of nylon webbing with some type of internal stiffener. Since you might be wearing it without the normal support of traditional pants the extra support might be beneficial. It also includes a Velcro strip to handle the loose end of the belt. Another advantage of this belt is that it provides a lot of adjustment since it does not use a traditional belt buckle and holes in the belt for fastening.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
