So I'm in the market for a new Spring/Summer loafer. A catch-all that I can wear with chinos and jeans as easily as I can with odd linen/fresco dress trou. I'm a fan of these but am curious to know if anyone here has a pair. I'm especially interested about the last (UETAM).
I was initially intrigued by the "Italian boat shoe" archetype when I saw these at Brooks Brothers. But seeing as how I want suede in a lighter color, the Carmina are ideal. And they are cheaper.
I've seen those in person (a friend of mine has a pair) and they're pretty damn incredible. I've tried on a sample in the Uetam and would go with the size I wear in every other last I've tried on. It's a comfortable last and fits much better than most other loafers I've worn/tried on.
