Holster manufacturers?

First, didn't there used to be a comprehensive list of manufacturers of pretty much all things gun related on TFL? I've searched for it but can't find it anymore.

Second, in the absence of the above, who are some makers of good quality leather concealment holsters. I'm not looking for ultra luxurious belt slides made out of unicorn yearling leather or anything. But quality stuff that won't lose its shape in a year or two.

A listing has been posted on a number of forums.
The list is rather old and some makers are no longer in business......

It's called 'Google' now. 7,760,000 results from a search for "Holster manufacturers". Then you need to decide on how much money you want to spend. Prices vary a lot.
"...lose its shape in a year or two...." That doesn't mean it's junk. Wet forming a holster is easy and literally free. Run the thing under your tap(Hot or cold doesn't matter) to wet but not dripping. Put the firearm in(you can wrap it in Saran wrap or not.) and let it dry.
"...unicorn yearling leather..." The trade in unicorn hides was banned by The Third World Debating Club. snicker.

You must not have looked in the "Retail Deals" forum. It's still there, and the holsters list is one of the longer ones:

The Kramer horsehide holsters I use have worn like iron. I don't think I'll ever wear them out.
