    Promises, he's 100% correct. It's not specifically no lacings, it's the vamp size. Your shoe has room to slide forward until your toes get upfront more. I rather enjoy the fit for my foot.

    I think I just didn't look at that picture closely enough, I figured it was just the 80191 since it was a penny on the Ueteam. I just checked a couple of the posts from the Carmina sizing thread that I'd saved a while ago and am feeling great about the size decision. I'm in. Let's do this. And, dude... these are my first loafers too...

    Agreed here -- if you look around their last collection online, the Simpson by far has the best range for my money.
    I agree about that view -- I was already pretty sure I was gonna do it, but when I saw that pic I knew it wasn't even a question. It actually made me want the shoe enough to consider doing the MTO alone if it feel through, ha. I wish they had a sliding scale, like, 50% just you, 40% you and a friend, 30% for three, and so on. Question -- will/can these have the purple lining, like the suedes do in the image on the first page?

    I definitely plan on getting more simpson next year.

    Purple lining looked very nice on navy shell. This shouldnt be a problem!

    Two perfect answers. That purple lining is going to be great.

    Now I need a navy belt... anyone have recs? I know Epaulet carries one, but I'm coming up short thinking of where else to look. Would Carmina do one? Calf is fine, in fact, it's probably preferable.

    :bounce2: I think we'll still be able to get several months of wear out of the loafers.

    So hard not to hop on board this mto. I just need to lock down my Uetam size first before I throw any more of my money away.
