Re: Carmina NST
Here are mine in pebble grain:
post #29373 of 37396

I like pebble more. I kind of prefer suede with a clean design (monks, chukkas, loafers can be okay), but I know most people don't seem to think that. Feel like a clean surface lets the suede texture take more of the focus.

Vote for suede. I like pebble best for boots...I need a pair myself.

Am I the only person on SF that does not like Dovers? I don't think they look good on anyone younger than 60.

I don't understand the high regard for those shoes.

They are okay shoes and that's about it. Not worth the hype or forgoing 2-3 pairs of camina over. The one I simply don't understand is the Vass norweger split toe, they are just butt ugly.


For suede vs pebble. Suede is meant to be rustic and the conspicuous stitching adds to the charm

jcm: The stitching on the suede seems out of place (or perhaps just not to my taste), and the color is a bit light. The pebble grain is a good looking shoe that you'll use plenty. If versatility is one of your considerations, I think it's the winner.

I've told you so many times. People in this thread often recommend way too expensive brands for beginners. A mistake with Suitsupply is much less costly than a mistake with Formosa.

Great advice MF, should be writ large at the top of the front page!

Also a well tailored, well fitting SS suit has every chance of looking just as good if not better than a $2k plus top brand suit that just doesn't fit or look right. We can all get snooty about full v half canvassing etc and yet ignore what is seen in the mirror.

SuSu was recommended over Formosa by several members but Noodles wasn't having any of it.

If only I had listened this one time. There were so many warning signs.

I have learned my lesson the hard way.

By the way, I did post pix of SuSu and many said that SuSu looked better. But I was too damn snobby and stubborn. Honestly wanted my staples to be really good quality suits, hence my obsession with the F brand.

But noodles the one thing I'll say is if I remember you have 3 or 4 formosas right? Only 1 didn't fit you? You can't knock the brand for 1 not being perfect. From others experience there is slight variation between each piece.

I agree there are pieces that are cheaper and fit you better because of their cookie cutter production but that doesn't mean you can knock another brand if one out of 3 or 4 didn't fit well.

I think it was a brand name thing.

Was this ever an argument?
