I don't reach for it much, but when I am wearing charcoal wool slacks in the winter, nothing else that I own pairs better.  (I recommend the unlined version).
U sure?  I think they are actually made in Canada. I don't think Alden ever made belts in house.  FWIW, even my Alden branded shell belts don't match my Alden shoes very well, but good enough.  (Barely)
I'd be worried that I'd get color 8 pigment transfer on my clothes.
Thats dark cognac when its not in natural light.  Your pic is in low-light conditions with a flash.  Also, may be a particularly dark example of dark cognac.  As you must already know, shades vary shoe to shoe.  You never know what you might get in terms of a darker example vs a lighter example.  Shoes from the same batch can even have significant variance among them.

Yes, people start following the Alden thread on styleforum because Alden's are cool and they want to learn more about them and where they can find them.  They are not independent of one other.  (According to my theory) So you are suggesting that they are not any "cooler" than they were 5 years ago, people are just more aware them because of styleforum?  Not sure those are independent of each other either. As alcebiades points out, they have been getting PR from GQ and...
