How does a once piece belt actually work? I was always under the impression with shells that they were only big enough for about a shoe apiece, and as a result shell belts had to be stitched together from pieces of 2-3 shells?

Gentlemen, what is your general experience with going minus half-size length, plus one size width in the Barrie, e.g. 10D vs 9.5E?

That works for my foot. I own both 10.5e and 11d.

I think it can work well however it depends a bit on the shape if your foot. Is the 10D a better fit in length or width? If it is already on the wider side than going out to an E, even on the smaller length, may not work for you. This will be true especially in the heel as it may feel quite loose to you. Worth a try and seeing how it works for you.

I did not care about it being a one piece, now I appreciate how much nicer it is than my other shell belts. I think it matches my atoms and cap toe boots very well. I will be ordering other one piece shell belts from horween when they become available again.
btw, amazing customer service from the crew at horween.







happy 4th of July everyone.

nephew,
looking good

FYI

Ashland Leather 25% off today with code INDIE1776
I had been on the fence about a particular wallet but today's sale pushed me over the edge. I thought some others may be interested as well

Happy 4th of July everyone!  

 

I haven't posted in several months, but wanted to share a pretty cool photo.  Better fit for the AE thread, but also appropriate for this one...

 

(Note: this wasn't made for me, but rather passed along by a friend)

If I wear a 10D in Alden's 974 (wingtip bal/oxford), would I also be a 10D in Alden for BB wingtip bal/oxford??  I guess my question asks to compare the tremont last and M-75 last with regard to sizing.  Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your responses. A D width is a good snug fit, not loose at all, so that actually might work.

Tremont, for me, is tts less 1/2 size. M-75, for me, is tts.
