    I agree. I've had the same experience as you. If it's not broke...

    I'm a 11.5-12 depending on the last of course.

    I do have to say if someone was going to counterfeit Aldens, it wouldn't be in my size!

    I'm really surprised this hasn't happened actually...I hope it never does, but I'm just saying.....the 8.5-10.5 seems to be a sweet spot.

    Hence our periodic "Large Size Sale."

    What's up with that?

    You should test that theory and use armor all on your shoes and report back with the results.

    I wore this exact belt tonight with my snuff Cooney Boots from Leffot. It's a great match.

    Congrats, Seven, on the Cooney Boot. Hope to see in the wild pics soon.

    Re the snuff suede belt: I bought a Carmina snuff suede belt from Epaulet last summer. It was an exact match for all of my Alden snuff suede shoes and boots.

    all this belt talk has me wondering if someone (other than alden) offers an olive'ish belt (shell or calf I guess) to match some chukkas I have.

    I had god luck with an AE walnut calf belt to match some alden whiskeys, but would like something similar for my most worn pair of shells

    thanks in advance gents!

    I recall seeing earlier this week on Leffot that they were having a sale, which featured a cxl belt in some sort of olive/brown shade. It was reduced to something like $64.50 from ~$135. They're wonderful to work with, I might add.

    Best of luck in your search!
