Color 8 LHS fans, what is your favorite, go to belt to wear w your loafers? I know it depends on the outfit, leaving this open ended for those who dress them up vs down.

Currently I’m wearing a brown leather woven/braided belt….I generally don’t tuck in my shirt when wearing loafers.
I should clarify that I’m not particularly keen on meticulously matching my belt and shoes, unless the situation calls for which is not often.

Trubalance last is a wide last, so .5 size down from your usual size.
I believe Grant Stone suggests the same for their Leo last, but I only have experience with the Alexander last which GS advises to get the same size as one's in the Leo last.

I wear:
9 in 1035
9.5 in Alexander, I wouldn't hesitate to get a 9.5 in the Leo last....just saying.
9.5 in Trubalance

OMG, I didn't wear Aldens at all today, working in yard, helping son remove sod and put down weed barrier in advance of building a "play set" for the grandkids, so wore another brand of boots (GS). I feel like a traitor......:) Now that area is prepped, think I will wear Indy boots to build the sucker. It is wood, and Harrison was a carpenter, so a fitting boot for the job.

I have to give a shout out to Alden today. Sent them an email last week asking if they could send me a pair of shoelaces for my 975's. They sent me 4 pairs, including a pair for my Indy 405's!
All on the house. Got to love those guys.

I have a color 8 shell belt, but a brown CXL belt gets more wear with the loafers. I think the CXL goes better with denim.

I must acquire a pair of these. So choice!
Thanks so much. Sadly, I have heard that Hunting green suede is no longer available for shoes or boots. Others can shed some light on this.
