You say that the construction on the Gucci and Prada loafers you saw seemed lacking. I would be hesitant to assume that the Tod's were of any greater quality. I'm not very familiar with Santoni, but don't they make a lot of down-market shoes as well (for Gilt, others)? What exactly do you mean by Italian loafers? Country of origin or a more sleek style? Venetian loafers? Modern penny loafer? Horse bit?
