A new belt.

So I'm thinking that I'd like to get myself a new casual belt soon. I'm ok for dress belts, and I have a great motif belt from Leatherman. That means I need myself a brown leather casual belt, to go with jeans, chinos and cords, as well as boots and moccasins. I've done a lot of looking around, but wothout much luck. My primary criterion are that it be:
-Able to fit my 28 inch waist
-Have a silver toned buckle
-Wide enough to look right with 501's (around 1 and a half inches)
-Be hard wearing and somewhat reasonably priced
Ideally I'd like a belt that is distictive but still fairly plain, at least enough so that it would not be to hard to wear with a sport coat.

Thanks for the tips!
To give you guys a better idea of what I'm after, I bought this belt about a moth ago:
However they botched the order (shipped the wrong size and with their woman's logo on the inside) I returned it and decided not to go back to them, as I didn't really like the way the buckle left a gap in front.
Regardless, I like the idea, and I was hoping maybe someone knew of some other interesting belt designs that could be ordered with silver hardware.
You need a lobster belt buckle. I can't find it right now, but there's been discussion on here before.
I saw that one in the store, but I'd rather go with something a little more subtle. I've also seen a variety of horse tack belts, but I don't ride, so that may be disingenuous. What about brindle leather? Filson has some, but are they worth it? And if I want a silver or nickle buckle, were can I nab one? I only see (tacky) big plaque buckles.
