what belt to buy?

A friend of mine just got her 2nd kyu (brown belt). Since she'll probably be wearing it for a while, I'd like to get her a nice, japanese one. Does anyone have any recommendations? I've heard that Tokaido makes good belts.

Thanks

Fred

The coolness is you can embroider her name or whatever on it in Japanese katakana or kanji.

I think that her sensei frowns on embroidery of belts, but I'm not sure. the aikikai belts look pretty well made. thanks for the advice
