I'm in the process of replacing my dress belts due to wear and the inevitable advancing waistline. Â I've always had calfskin belts, but out of curiosity I have been looking at lizard and alligator belts. Â For some reason, I just don't picture myself wearing alligator or lizard. Â A sales person suggested that I have a younger self-image that sees alligator as "too stuffy." Â Not sure that's it, but I'm curious to see if I am alone in preferring simple calf to the more luxe materials.
