I don't do this much, but there's a service selling Russia Calf belts and leathergoods from Canada. The workmanship is a bit rough around the edges and the made to measure shoes they are trying to sell are rather odd, but the price for a Russia Calf belt is about 75% less than New & Lingwood wants. The buckles on these are kind of nasty, but a cobbler could probably put on a different one. Just thought I'd give a head's up to anyone interested. And yes, the thrill of Russia Calf is the myth behind it, it's not going to change your life.http://www.celticempire.com/Merchant...ategory_Code=B
