Rick, you start with this belt here:

I believe it is the 2" belt. Then get the brown dye. I remember I dyed mine using those bottles of shoe polish with the little sponge on the tip. Mine was brown and i dyed mine black to make it into an imperial officer belt.

Here is the closest buckle right now:

Ok then...how do I attach the buckle to the belt? Those parade belts require special loop attachments to secure

I would suggest getting one of the really cheap web belts and cutting the buckle off of that to use with the dress belt. this is how the canon belts were done.

If I'm correct, some of the belts have a snap already put in there. You just loop the end of the belt through the buckle keeper and snap it shut...
