    Greetings,

    Has anyone successfully shortened an Allen Edmonds belt, namely the Wide Basic Dress one? After a search, I saw that a belt can be easily shortened if there's a screw but more challenging if it's stitched, and the AE appears to be stitched. After talking to my tailor, she would need to see it to know if she could shorten it, which worries me that this isn't an automatic sort of thing. Any help is much appreciated.


    Thanks,

    This is easily accomplished by any decent shoe repair guy. I recently had some AE belts shortened - $15 a piece.
