Alden 35mm Color 8 Shell Cordovan Belt w. Nickel Buckle - Not being produced right now.

 

Pretty sure that US retailers aren't allowed to put their Cigar, Whiskey, Ravello inventory on their websites by orders of Alden.  (It was explained to me by one retailer that this is to protect their international retailers from being undercut.)

 

So you won't see any of those colors listed on retailers' websites, and even if you did, it would probably be too late by the time you saw it.  As others have alluded, best bet is to call, or even better visit in person if possible.

You can distinguish the x-y-z generations from us old farts by their tats and piercings. Some would say the break of a gentleman's trousers is a dead giveaway too. Full break for this child of the twentieth century.

I think you're right. Epaulet carries Carmina "Cognac" and "Saddle" cordovan belts.

I agree, but that just plain looks better! IMO.

For #8 and cigar, my most worn belt is this:
Allen Edmonds Men's Polished Cobbler

The burgundy one.

Having the one-piece belt is - at once - something to be proud of (rare) and ashamed of (cost of $425). biggrin.gif

Kudos to you! Not sure if I'd have the wearwithall to pull the trigger on that belt.
