    It can take a while to get a response and sometimes you have to send multiple emails. Let me rephrase, it is great but can be slow. This is totally understandable though because it seems like Betty is the only person they have doing CS,

    yup, your carminas are great lookin, no doubt-- how do you plan to wear them/ with what do u plan to wear em? I'm considering pulling a trigger on a similar shoe (below, in sorta pebble grain/patina-d) , but never owned this type of style before, wonderin about versatility. wear with blazer/ sportcoat? jeans? solid and striped suits?[​IMG]

    As I often do, I tried them on with every pair of pants I own and determined that they go with everything except jeans. I think they'd be more at home with a gray suit than a navy but they look good with the navy. IanGP often wears 3 eyelet bluchers with a grey DB pinstripe and I think they look great there. The pebble grain ones you posted are definitely a shift down on the formality scale and will probably work with jeans.

    I posted this pic in the Carmina thread but I think they look awesome with slim chinos.

    Ebay, I payed a little more for them than I wanted but it is what it is. They'll look funky fresh with some white linen trousers and I might get a wild hair and have a green crocodile belt commissioned to do it right. :slayer:

    In the US we wear brown shoes with suits all the time ;) I interpreted the orly as you're wrong.
