    My old alligator belt from Longhi got lost in the move to our new apartment, so I need a replacement..

    Lost the belt? Next time get the belt with the eyes. If you lose it, the belt can find you[​IMG]

    Fantastic, thanks!

    Anyone else in Italy you'd recommend who does this sort of belt construction?

    Here's Tardini gator at a very good price (warning: do not click RSS and Foo, American gator and not tubo or matte):

    I like UWS and UES, but UWS is better situated for my purposes. I've had a place on West End Ave. for years. Trying to decide whether it is time to move. Mortgage rates are very good now.

    Love West End--one of the most elegant streets in Manhattan, in my opinion. We were sad when we had to leave it.

    You could try marketing it through TitC.

    Speaking of which...I think this deserves a post. We've been subsisting on Genovese for way too long now.

    Doesn't Vacca have a whole line of Alligator accessories now? Haven't seen them in person, but you might give them a look.

    The Genovese demands contemplation.

    I have an irrational disgust for that store.
