Belts - Alligator, Crocodile, Snake, Eel, Etc. - Page 4

post #46 of 50
I've got 2 old dress Alligator belts circa late 50s/early '60s that my grandfather bought in Wichita, KS. They're nice belts, but have a few spots where the sealant seems to have cracked and the leather underneath is exposed. Anyone know if the belts can be re-sealed or repaired? I live in Manhattan, so if anyone knows of good leather shops that could handle something like this, I'd appreciate the info. Thanks...

Does anyone know how one should care for eel skin? I bought a beautiful pair of eel skin shoes but didn't want to use "normal" leather cream in case it was too harsh for eel.

His belts are really amazing. Highly detailed with the stuff I like in a belt, blocked keepers, perfect edges, invisible snaps, color matching tongue holes. They smell really great too. I know someone who uses the belts to scent their sock drawer.

I'm wearing one of Bill's belts now as my work belt. Super English bridle leather.
I love the squeak.
Same details as the most expensive belts.

Anyone have a way of seeing and potentially ordering Bill Julian belts?

Sorry, Bill's number is 860 844 8440.
He's not on the web.
It's worth the hassle.
He doesn't sell through any stores that I know of.

I've never seen his wallets but I've heard that they are the best.
The wallets are M+.
I think one of my clients ordered one.
When he gets it I'll ask him how he likes it and report back.
