    Sharkskin belts

    I have several RafterS sharkskin belts. The last I bought were not of the same quality as in the past. The holes were very ragged on the inside, and the edges were not as nice.

    I called Sparks today and learned that the supply of sharkskin was such that they are not taking orders for sharkskin at this time.

    I looked at Beltman and he only offered the color black and I want cordovan. I have black, tan, and dark brown sharkskin belts, and don't want any but cordovan.

    Who makes a sharkskin equal to Sparks with a similar lead time? I am not interested in any second tier belt or a year wait.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    The supply of quality shark as been fairly dry for awhile. The quality of the elephant has been even worse in my opinion. Hopefully things will change with exotic leather supply soon.

    Thanks, I'll just wait and see. I really don't need a belt since I have 4 sharkskin belts, but no cordovan. :)

    Best,
    Jerry

    That's a very nice belt. How long did you have to wait and is that buckle readily available?
