I have two Alden belts - one is reddish-brown to go with my Alden blucher mocs, the other is a light brown that goes with my weatherproof bluchers. (Yes, I like bluchers. And I'm voting for Cloris Leachman on Dancing With the Stars.)I ordered one from LL Bean and figured that since both the belt and shoe color was listed as brown that they would be the same shade,but that's not the case. The belt is a very dark brown. I'll be really appreciative of any help as I haven't really gotten to enjoy my shoes yet.
Both would probably need to be ordered, even from a men's shop that carries Alden. But at least you'd be able to see a pair of shoes that are precisely the same color and know what you're getting.
Option #2 is to go to a shoe store that only carries one particular brand - Cole-Haan, Johnston & Murphy, Bostonian, Allen Edmonds... they would be more likely to carry a range of belts in unusual colors, since they have a sense of obligation to the company.
