    I think you have the people on this thread a bit confused. Are you asking what color to get a croc/gator shoe/wallet/belt/etc in? Or what color to use when cleaning it?

    Yes I believe I have made everyone confused and I am truly apologize.

    I'm not exactly sure what you meant by " What color to use when cleaning " but my question involves your best opinions on what color to get in alligator leather leather goods. I'm buying an alligator leather bill-fold wallet but unsure what color to pick. I'm looking for a patina for when I use this wallet for many years so I'm uncertain on what color will patina and not.
