Question Would u wear an aligator or croc skin product?

I was wondering if anyone here would have a problem wearing a product (like a jacket or shoes) made out of aligator or crocodile skin?

I initially thought I would have a problem with it but when I thought about it rationally I wasn't too sure anymore. Their leather would come from a farmed animal... the animal is not wasted from what I understand as the meat is sold for consumption. Aligator and croc farms have actually helped the wild population from becoming endangered or extinct. So in a wierd way if you support the aligator farm then are you not helping support the conservation of the species?

I would not wear anything made from snake skin or monitor skin as I know these are not farmed but caught from the wild for their skin and this trade really hurts their wild population.

Let me know your thoughts.
