    Use something neutral in color. VSC will be fine.

    It's finally sunny today so I took pictures of my new carmina loafers. They are the same size but the noix ones barely fit me and the navy ones don't fit at all. Difference due to batch perhaps, not sure. Probably was a bad idea to size down half a size anyway. Have to sell the navy ones and debating on selling the Noix ones. Very beautiful loafers none-the-less and I am impressed with quality for the price. Will not be the last carminas I purchase!

    I'm not familiar about the mark up for (G)MTOs etc. Also I'm located in Sweden, but it shouldn't be a problem. Keep me updated regarding this make up :)

    I sent steve an email and pointed him to this thread. It's Saturday so let's give him some time to respond!

    To confirm, Simpson lasted Adelaide in dark brown suede? What sole, leather or tomir? My knee jerk reaction is leather

    Thanks for that!

    Sorry to hear that the fit didn't work out.

    I have a pair of the Navys on order. Can't wait after seeing these pics.

    Thumbs up for proper spoiler usage. People in the alden threak can't seem to figure them out!
