It is my understanding that the suede we will be using is slightly lighter. Which in fact may work better for a summer loafer.
Just a public service announcement: I am putting together a Carmina MTO suede tassel order through a fellow member, steveyoo1983, who is opening up what looks to be a great store shortly; info available here, http://gentlemensfootwear.tumblr.com/. The details for these tassel loafers are below. But definitely PM if you have any questions. Happy to answer them. Once we have six together, I will place the order. We should definitely have these shoes ready in time for...
What is up with all the sudden hate against Leffot and Epaulet? I have had some not stellar interactions with Leffot, but Mike and Epaulet have always been fantastic and very customer-service oriented.
Fellow Carmina enthusiasts, I am tentatively doing a MTO tassel loafer for the summer from a new shoe store opening up in L.A. and wanted to see if anyone else was interested.

Also, a bit tougher feeling, but when...
Anybody interested in a MTO mist suede tassel loafer with navy calf tassels? I can rally the troops if folks are interested. We would only need 6. PM if interested.
Mike, best news ever! Adele will be hearing from me shortly.
Mike, is there are any chance we could do longer sleeve lengths on any of these, like we do longer inseams on the factory finds?That would empty my wallet out with the quickness.Long shot, but can't hurt to ask.
This looks perfect to me and how I would like mine to fit (waiting to gear from Drew if that burgundy leather he posted can be used). What do you not like about it?
