Alligator-and crocodile-skin shoes, belts, and briefcases are exceptionally durable. And as stylish accessories, they are especially enduring. Indeed, the textured hides have been fashion mainstays for generations. The items shown here are among our favorites from this season’s offerings. Clockwise from far left: Tod’s alligator backpack (tod’s.com, $36,000), Prada crocodile loafer (prada.com, price upon request), Dunhill alligator briefcase (dunhilll.com, $34,000), Ghurka alligator duffel bag (ghurka.com, $25,000), Zilli crocodile belt (zilli.com, $3,880).
