When I returned my shoes it was $50-60 via USPS and they were in customs in Spain for about a month. Does your tracking show them as not being received yet? I don't know of any new rules with the US site but so far your experience sounds about right... :/

Hi all,

 

With the help of the great advice on this thread, I finally got my first pair of Carminas along with a belt. Love them so far!

However, the belt's second keeper is too far from the first keeper and causes my belt buckle to not be centered. I've seen this mentioned by at least two people on this thread who actually removed the second keeper. Is this the only way to solve the issue? The additional keeper is also too thick to squeeze through the belt loop so that it's on the "other side" of it. I find this to be a strange; either belt loops on Spanish pants are spaced further away from the fly than on my pants, or Carmina overlooked this, but neither seems plausible.

 

If removing the keeper is the only solution, can I simply unscrew the buckle and remove it myself, or does that need to be done by a professional?

Just unscrew, it's really simple

I grabbed this boot! (Not your size though)

Also been about to pull the trigger at full prize but when randomly looking around they were on sale, easy choice then...

I just got a Carmina belt and removed the second running keeper. It was getting caught in the belt loop, so I just used a screw driver. Have to say that Carmina's belts are a great value for the money. Really well made and pretty good leather from what I can tell. Have a few more coming!

Thanks! So removing the second keeper is as straightforward as it seems--i.e., just remove the screw, remove the second keeper, and re-attach?

 

Also, does anyone know why the keepers are placed as far out as they are?

Yup, that's it. Once you open it you'll see how easy it is. This way if your belt is also too long you can just cut off from the end, make a new hole, and voila you have a shorter belt.

Thanks, that's great to know! I was worried that the belt used a special screw that I wouldn't be able to reuse without special tools, especially since I can't see the other side of the screw right now.

Just a regular phillip head screwdriver. Give it a shot, very easy and not worth the thought you're putting into it ;)

But I'd much rather type about it than actually do something about it! :D
