Cloth Reproduction fan belts

When I first put my L79 together I spent the extra money for reproduction belts. The alternator needed some shimming and the first time I wound it up both the AC and alternator belt flipped upside down. I hate the look of saw tooth belts but wondering if any body else has had an issue. The other day I took her through the gears and when I got home the AC belt was upside down. I noticed the cloth was worn on one side exposing the rubber beneath it. I did correct the alignment issue but the belt did still flip. Can I assume the belt is no longer usable and I should just buy a new one or the belts do not work well and I should just by a better belt. I really like the look of the repro's. Thanks

Two things that I have found is first the reproduction belts are not very good and once a belt flips over like that it usually will keep doing it whether the alignment has been fixed or not.
