nephew,
good looking cap toe boot

Not always a fan of the captoe, but I like them from that angle on that sole with all eyelets.  Barrie or Grant?  They look round rather than pointy, which is what I like.

Modified last, of course, and listed as available in limited sizes, but good looking and unusual.

Those look like J Crew's captoe's cousin... very nice

Thanks. Grant Last. I tried on all the variations of the Cap Toe #8 before going with these ones from Shoe Mart. They are my favorite ones.

I wouldn't complain if you posted some more pics from different angles...

 

...Just sayin.

NY said they are hard to find, and that Alden stopped making them a year and a half ago.  (however, I was able to get a cigar belt from SF over the summer when the received that unexpected shipment of exotic shell belts puzzled.gif .)

Haven't gotten in touch with DC yet, but the gentleman at the Madison location said that he heard from customers that Brooks Brothers has shell belts.  I saw some on their website, but they had an etched buckle.  I am not sure if they have a more conventional version at the Brooks Brothers on Madison, so thought I would post here to see if anyone knew what he was referring too?

Pics would be a plus!

Thanks in Advance.

At one point (early 2011-ish) I ordered a black shell and a burgundy shell belt from BB (the conventional version). I ended up sending them both back. After a simple try-on, the belts had the look of being stretched, and quite used. In short, I was not satisfied with the quality or the perceived durability. But I would imagine some here have had better experiences with shell belts from BB. As your post implies, it is worth pointing out that Alden does not make shell belts for BB.

Also, I am not a huge fan of the multi piece method that is necessarily used for shell belts; I personally don't care for how it looks in comparison to a one piece calf belt.

I've got a couple of shell belts I bought from Ben Silver. Multi-piece construction. One Whiskey, one Color 8

They have held up well with regular wear for 10+ years now.

7fold

 

Thanks for sharing your experience.  I agree that 1 piece is ideal, but I gotta have what I can get.

 

I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait until one comes along.

I can't see the pic but if it is the PCT boot I have it and it's great. Folks at Moulded Shoe are excellent too! Only minor issue I have with the shoe is the pull tab... my trousers tend to get caught on top of them.

Whiskey belt - nice ... and very rare.

Glad your experience has been a good one.
