    we need more shell, their isnt enough of it. its reflected in the 30% + price difference compared to calf and the 1 year+ wait that many retailers/shoe manufacturers quote when inquiring about the availability of shell.

    Anyone have the CXL Color 8 belt? I wonder how close it is to Alden Color 8? I don't feel I need a shell belt if that matches fairly well.

    I hav the Rancourt Carmel belt and shoe and love them. The Carmel is definitely lighter than Whiskey but noty a huge difference.

    See Ya,

    Don L - those Alt Wien's are fantastic, wish they were available in my size.

    RE: shell shortage - I am completely buying into the hype that there is a shortage, because it is the only logical way to explain why the Epaulet Ravello Brixton pre-order is nearly at 30 months and counting.

    Also note that we are not seeing any new shells being released other than Color 8 and Black currently.

    I believe Alden is focusing on their bread and butter models like the 975, 9901, etc., since they likely want to be able to supply those as a priority over anything ravello, whiskey or cigar, and also over any special make-ups.
