    I need a belt that's your basic shell/#8 color for dressy wear, doesn't have to be shell. Any suggestions?

    You bring up a very good point. :confused:

    However, I'm not in 'formal' situations very often; a few times a year.

    I guess i'd have to rock the suit and loaf' look !

    Yeah, this is why I chose a blucher. LHS and suit might be passable. Tassel or full strap is probably easier to pull off with a suit.

    There are many suitable and complimentary belts available. From AE and Cole-Haan, which are affordable, to Rodeo Drive type men's furnishings which are cost prohibitive. A matching calf skin belt will work just fine. But, if you love your shells as much as I do I think it's worth your time to look at Nick Horweens shell cordovan belts. They're spendy but the construction is too notch.
