Alligator / Crocodile Shoes - Page 71

post #1051 of 1064
When it comes to matching exotics, is it considered classic to keep everything of the same animal or is mixing and matching also classic?? My dad used to match croc with alligator, sometimes ostrich. puzzled.gif

It's probably best to not mix exotic leathers, including items of the same material. That means, for example, a gator belt only with regular leather shoes and so on.

I'm not claiming any expertise in this arena but I don't see the reasoning there. ?? I'd definitely wear alligator shoes with an alligator belt and an alligator wallet.

Just my 2cents.gif

For years I've worn crocagator accessories (belts, wallets, watch bands) with calfskin shoes. I don't see a problem with it.

Because there was no reasoning stated. Possibly there's an exemption for a craftsman, but for the most part wearing multiple exotic leather items will look like needless showing off. A wallet doesn't really count, though, for nobody actually holds the wallet in his hands most of the time smile.gif

OK, thanks all. I will use my best judgement. biggrin.gif

Here I was thinking croc shoes and a cowhide belt & wallet was a faux pas. LOL

Yup, that's turtle alright...though we shouldn't type this down. The hide is a no-no these days, even vintage pairs may be snagged in customs.
