Have 5 Gator, 3 Shell Alden's, Coach's, Shark's (were my Dad's) Ostrich and leather of course from Cows. Just got my belt fromhttp://www.woodwardboots.com/page/page/2162635.htm
and it makes all of my others seem "lacking" from the quality of the Cognac Gator, construction, silver buckles which he makes himself! I am ruined---getting a black one and he is making a sting ray band for my Panerai. Sending him one of my spares along with some hardware as soon as my wife brings it home for a pattern.
Have spoken with John several times and he is very customer oriented. Anyone else have any of his stuff???
