Who actually made the belt I do not know; the label is Brioni (belt says Handmade Italy). I had been looking forever for a brown and black crocodile belt that I really liked and in the fall I found both colors in New York City and scooped them up.
Here's my recent shoo shine. l might give them another hour tonight and i'll call it quits. They are shining so well that they almost resemble beacon lights at twilight. The photo does not do these justice. These shoes just shine and shine and have a place amongst the finest shoe shines.
