Shell cordovan belts

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter Lands' End for some time has offered a shell cordovan belt in color 8 for $89. Has anyone purchased this belt that can comment on the quality? My thinking is that not just any belt maker could work with shell cordovan and perhaps this is a belt made by the same maker as makes Alden shell belts or Ben Silver. Can anyone shed some light on this belt?

Strange, they only have it in 32, 38, 40 ... totally skipping 34 and 36? It's a good price, though. Too bad they don't have a bigger picture so we could see if/how it's put together from shorter pieces.

I think shell cordovan belts are always made from multiple pieces. The horsehide isn't big enough to cut an entire belt from lengthwise.

They had a full range of sizes when they started out, but the sizes not seen sold out quickly from what I recall. I too had heard/read that shell cordovan belts must be made in pieces. In speaking with Lands' End, they confirmed that belt is made that way. They don't have my size or I would give the belt a try. lands' End has a very liberal return policy.

While on the topic of belts - anyone ever seen the Sulka belts that Flusser mentioned - yellow webbing with alligator trim? They sound great, I've always hoped to find one.
