    I feel like I'm fighting an uphill battle on the tassels of any kind, but in the interest of getting a loafer done in the mist suede, what do we think about this:

    Same great last only minus the tassels.

    I'm definitely interested in making the loafers for summer - I'd be in regardless string or tassels, however I'd prefer tassels.

    personally not a fan of the tassles but the mist suede penny loafer looks gorgeous and having handled one in choco suede before, i would definitely jump at it if produced

    That makes three so far for the mist suede penny loafer. Three more and we can make this a reality.

    Thanks - those are St Crispins.

    I feel funny forking over that much for a pair of saddle shoes.

    But I'm a big fan.

    I thought the penny loafer was only posted to give a reference photo for the Mist suede, and that we would be making the tassel loafer in that material.

    Or are we making both?

    The tassel wasn't getting any traction so I thought I might gauge interest in a more conventional model. I wouldn't have any problem running both, I just want to get the mto up and running so we have a shot of getting it for the summer. As I'm still waiting on my jodhpurs from forever ago, I know how long these things can "possibly" take so I wanna give them as much time as possible.

    They look good to me, but unfortunately, I'm currently trying to unload a pair of saddle shoes (see my signature...). I wonder if this is a style that Carmina can do without creating it from scratch (as I believe they had to do for Mike for the austerity bal boot).
