I may be late on this, but I’m 100% confident in saying that ‘Swamp People’ is the best show on television. Riveting. Don’t watch? Get on it – program your DVR now. The premise of the show is alligator hunting in Louisiana – not for the faint of heart. On the front end, it’s population control, and on back end, it’s big business.

One of those businesses is turning the hides into usable shoes and accessories. Here are some of my favorites:

Ralph Lauren Purple Label Penny Loafers

Ralph Lauren Purple Label Belt

Lucchese Alligator Boots

Brioni Black Alligator Cap Toe Oxford

Alligator Wallet

Alligator Watch Band – Add a Deployment Clasp to save the wear and tear.

Col. Littleton has a great selection of American Alligator accessories:

Front Pocket Wallet



Anything I missed? Now I need to start saving towards those $12 grand Lucchese boots…

    Alligator is something that has received a bad rap. Like everything: in moderation. That portfolio? Beautiful.
