I've seen various threads here and elsewhere looking for advise on a belt to wear with whiskey shoes, and when I purchased my first pair recently, I also searched for a solution. I wanted to avoid the "matched" look, but wanted something in the right color family.

Pictures (flash and non-flash) attached, fawn-safari alligator belt.

Per my previous post, I was trying to avoid the "matched set" look.

FAIL

Looks like an exact match.

Lots people here like it/desire it.

To me, it's sure sign of a novice.

Lee, thanks for the kind words. I don't see how alligator and cordovan can be an exact match, but as you say, I'm a novice.

I'd like to hear about other options for a belt to go with whiskey shell cordovan. Since its been a while since this thread was added to.

I'm not a huge fan of matching the leathers 100%, but a close to exact colour match in a different type of leather is very cool (smooth cordovan vs a textured leather).
I have some whiskey cordovan laying around...I will see if I can find anything matching in colour!

Chris, firstly, congratulations on the purchase of those Whiskey Shell beauties. As they are casual, you are free to explore belts of slightly contrasting shades of honey brown & chestnut. Avoid silver coloured buckes and go for a medium weight casual buckle in brass.
