    NAMOR -- if you think Pepe from Meermin has been great to deal, wait til you deal with Charlie from Equus. I've ordered just one belt from Equus, and the entire process with Charlie and Dawn could not have been more pleasant.

    Regarding nickel vs stainless steel, both are nice. The stainless steel is brighter/whiter in color. I chose nickel for my belt. Here's a comparison -- http://www.styleforum.net/t/260644/...ts-official-affiliate-thread/195#post_5276998.

    David Lewis of DCLewis shoes made me a belt in #8 shell & a watchband in #4. He mentioned navy shell as a possibility; I don't remember whether it was Horween or Japanese.

    Would it be too decadent to buy a belt with a silver buckle? :devil:

    Everyone is too busy jerking over at the Meermin thread atm, but to answer your question, on SF nothing is ever too decadent.

    How many inches are your cuffs here?

    Where can I buy a pair of Carmina's online? What site does everyone use? I want a pair of simple black captoes. Preferably the pair Spoo posted a few posts ago in black.
