I asked the same question a few pages back. So far a black belt seems the only fit. I think with some wear they should be alright.

I would check with Leffot and see if they have a color that matches in the new line of belts they. I think the maker is Corthe

I don't know if this has been suggested before but have you tried Guarded Goods?  http://www.guardedgoods.com  

 

He does custom work so maybe he can obtain the same leather and make you a belt.  He does good work, and I believe he is a forum member.

Here's a quick snapshot I took of the natural shell. I'm going to package them back up here shortly and get some full eyelets put in.
Havent fully decided what color eyelets yet thou. Thinking bright brass.

I talked with Brian over email and he's willing to do it for a reasonable price. He does good work on his Instagram.

I contacted him yesterday about a sole conversion. His work seems legit. Although I noticed he stitches across the middle of the soles. Curious why he does that.

Interesting to see how they change colors in diff lighting. Which picture would you say is more true to life?

I think this is your insta?

Very interested to see how the eyelets work out. Haven't gotten around to sending out my mahogany pair for eyelets yet.

What did he estimate for turnaround time?

Yeah it's my insta. I would say the indoor picture is closer, but they do vary quite a bit based on lighting.
Estimate was a couple weeks.

My pictures are pretty darn close to true to life color as I spend time color balancing my pictures. Although, especially since they are a lighter shade, their color will vary based upon the lighting source...

Shell-king, these are fantastic.

I kinda miss my pair after seeing all these photos.

The natural shell looks great!
post #17384 of 19313

I noticed a strange triangle shaped mark on my natural shells. It is hard to describe and the pictures only kind of capture what is going on. It looks like a portion of it was tanned differently or maybe it was left underneath some other shell while it was exposed to light? I have no idea, but a little annoying.  I tried to rub some VSC on it and see if it would blend it but no luck. Anyone have any tips?

Just wear them? Natural tanned leather - shell or not - is going to darken and patina significantly. That will be unnoticeable if you actually put some wear on those boots.
