    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Alden 35mm Color 8 Shell Cordovan Belt w. Nickel Buckle - Not being produced right now.

    Pretty sure that US retailers aren't allowed to put their Cigar, Whiskey, Ravello inventory on their websites by orders of Alden. (It was explained to me by one retailer that this is to protect their international retailers from being undercut.)

    So you won't see any of those colors listed on retailers' websites, and even if you did, it would probably be too late by the time you saw it. As others have alluded, best bet is to call, or even better visit in person if possible.

    You can distinguish the x-y-z generations from us old farts by their tats and piercings. Some would say the break of a gentleman's trousers is a dead giveaway too. Full break for this child of the twentieth century.

    I think you're right. Epaulet carries Carmina "Cognac" and "Saddle" cordovan belts.

    Having the one-piece belt is - at once - something to be proud of (rare) and ashamed of (cost of $425). :D

    Kudos to you! Not sure if I'd have the wearwithall to pull the trigger on that belt.

    Right on my brother. Right on! Yeah, and we were going to bring the nuclear subs home, have flying cars, and vacation on the moon. "I have a dream today ..." Truth be told MP my mother wouldn't let me get any tattoos, something about Satin. Lol.

    Yes - I wear both vintage brands TTS (or TTS less one width) - 9.5D or 9.5C, and Barrie 1/2 size down (9D).
