    This is a terrible thing to have happen. I too suffer from this problem. All of my 11.5D barrie last shoes could and should be 11E :confused:

    As long as they aren't uncomfortable, don't sweat it too much.

    Have you actually seen an Alden cigar or ravello belt for sale anywhere? I gave up in frustration a while ago after searching for both of those colors (in shell) for months...

    PLEASE let me know if you know of any place or person selling either of the above in size 34/35..

    best

    (Please excuse the crap iphone photo and carpet!)

    Got this black calf NST as a christmas present from my cousin, only my second pair of Alden's (Cigar shell cap toe boots were the first). They fit well and are very comfortable, but I'm not exactly sure I'm ok with black shoes in a casual setting, I just don't know what to wear them with. I was thinking about getting blue laces to make them pop a bit more, and I generally wear jeans or chinos. Also, no experience with caring for calf, shell is just so easy and low maintenance. Was hoping for some advice from the pro's.

    The folks at Alden DC told me there is a severe shortage of shell cordovan belts, especially in the nonstandard colors. I'm surprised anyone has them, as I was told it would be a several month lead time.

    There are still a few belts around if you are a size 28" or a 42"
