    gentleman, apart from Carmina does anyone know any other online retailers carry the string loafers in snuff suede together with the matching belt?

    The Quality Shop has no size UK8 while Skoak does not carry it in snuff suede

    Does this seem like a normal amount of creasing and micro-creasing after 2 wears?

    Are those from Gentlemen's Footwear, or Carmina direct? They look great!

    Gentleman's footwear. Steve threw them up on an auction and I didn't even know he was an affiliate.

    I did my research and read about the "Carmina squeak", but didn't find a solution. I have a few pairs, but only one right shoe makes a terrible squeak/creak when I walk. It is embarrassing. Did anyone ever find a remedy for the issue? I'm ready to sell these things if not.
