Those are some beautiful belts, whomewhat. RIDER: Fuscus is just a colour. It means 'brown' in Latin, although sometimes makers label their goods as Fuscus, so it ends up seeming like a species of its own. Caiman also just means alligator. There are only six crocodylia species that are suitable for making leather goods out of. This is determined entirely by CITES regulations. Basically, CITES App.II species can be imported/exported with the right permits, whereas App.I...
I don't think there is anything explicitly wrong with wearing anything exotic as a belt. I've always liked seeing alligator or crocodile belts.

Soph, that coat you posted is probably the nicest I've ever seen. kitonbrioni, that entire collection is stunning, especially the two Kitons.
You'd have to ask Roger about Vancouver. He knows the city inside and out, I believe.
