Cool. FYI your posts about Alden SF and Alden DC have inspired me to get two new cordovan pairs (the previously posted captoe boots and the shortwings). Thanks because I think I will get a lot of wear out of both. nod[1].gif

Check with David from DC Lewis. I think he made a cigar belt for another forum member, and I'm pretty sure it was around $200, if not less.

Paid $90 for mine during the holiday season

You could also try Rancourt. They don't do cigar or a brown shell as stock, but they might custom dye to achieve the effect. $190, I think, so got BB sale price, and the style is fairly casual.

I just got these off of eBay today, did the buy it now for $589.  My first cigars, and my first LWBs.  I have been looking for cigar cap toe balmorals, but have not been able to find them in my size.  I planned on getting a #8 LWB, since I like that color so much.  I am a little concerned, as these have not arrived yet and I am already thinking about my next purchase.   

 

I know it is supposed to be a rule that you do not wear bluchers with suits, but I may have to deviate from that one.

I was eyeing these on ebay as well.  Congrats!  Btw, I think you can use these bluchers with the right suit.
