Where to get cruiser saddles?

Yes, I know the LBS or Amazon has their staples, So does Wallyworld with a Bell or Schwinn cheapie, but I'm looking for the heavy duty, concave, comfy, double sprung, bolstered faux leather type saddles you see on Felt cruisers and the likes. The Amazon Velo SD (triple sprung) is the only saddle out there that comes close, but it seems it's the only one.
I'm looking for the "Corbin" of bike saddles.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Here is a saddle that I like very much.
Previously, there were multiple other Hong Kong and China based sellers of this exact model of new saddle on ebay that possessed higher ratings closer to 100%.
Perhaps, those sellers with the higher ratings have sold out of these due to the current circumstances within China that have idled many of the factories there.
Here is just one Hong Kong based ebayer that does currently have this New Retro Classic Bicycle Seat.

That would be any seat that raises your ride height 1-2 inches. That's what a Corbin did for me.

I'm looking for a "Goldilocks" saddle. I have tried a Brooks B-67---too hard. I tried an Electra XL. Comfortable, but too creeky. I tried a Selle Royal Drifter and Firmstrong Bubble (OEM) saddle were too mushy.
I just found some offerings at Husky Bicycles. Anyone ever heard of them?

considering this one...

I think my adjustable seat posts can do that. Lol.

Ebay is the best if price is a concern. Might take some time to find a deal though...

Damn, shopping on their site is like building a car. The $399 cruiser I built would go out the door at $1133.37 including the Tshirt but not tax.
