You will need a substaintial belt.
Which did you decide on?

I’ve got a couple of those. Hard to beat for the money. The one I bought for my Sig P365 works well.

Typically they vary a little bit based on size/model and features. For a G19 size, full sweat guard, allow for threaded barrel, optics cut, etc (full featured) it would run $55 for a pattern or $50 for solid colors. I make them from 0.080” thick/sturdy Kydex and use all stainless hardware (blacked out). Normally I try and cover shipping (CONUS) in those prices. If someone were to want several made up I could possibly do slightly better on price.

I have a El Paso Saddlery holster for owb and a Galco for iwb. I have tried Crossbreed owb and Bravo concealment iwb, and probably acouple more that I have forgotten. The Galco is the most comfortable iwb that I have tried, but pricy, they have gone up quite a bit since I bought mine.

I rarely make suggestions about holsters because they are personal man purses for our most important EDC tools but .... I've worn a bunch of different ones over the years for 1911s, 686s, Glocks, P226s, P320s and now my P365 X Macro.

This Black Point Tactical leather wing/kydex combo OWB holster I've been using with this P365 is a work of art imho. Totally adjustable, super comfortable, positive retention, easy on and off. Looks great too and I really like the moisture guard on the backside, keeps moisture off the forearm and your shirt out of the way on the draw.

Read the reviews, watch the videos about it ... I took my time shopping and trying various holsters before I finally pulled the string on this BPT on the advice of a SpecOps buddy of mine and he was right.

I decided on the Azula pancake holster. Just something about leather saddles, reins, breast collars, belts and holsters. Rawhide reatas not so much.

I have used Milt Sparks 55BN OWB holsters for years.

They are not a cheap/budget holster, but if you want a holster that will last for decades, and perform like it should, they are a good choice.
