We can do some off-kilter tassel loafers or two-tone spectators. This late Spring delivery is the perfect time to get some really colorful and interesting styles.

Some bright tassel loafers with a cool contrast stitch on the toe are exactly what I'd like.

I dig almost everything Mike comes up with. Lama boot, Austerity boots, Austerity brogues (maybe even more than one color, depending on the suede Mike finds), purple suede boots, and I'd love a pair (or three...) of nice tassel loafers.

 

My wallet is hurting ;_;

I know I am trying to resist. I had to give in to the Lama boot (provided we can still get it!)

I want a pair of loafers, not too much of a fan of the tassel tbh. I am more for the single monk loafer/penny loafer

To Mike's point about suede and this post above:

 

I'd really be interested in an round toe suede chukka. Ideally in a 2-eyelet chukka, maybe 3? Don't think it'd look great in 5. No preference re lined or unlined. Double or single leather sole, antiqued/light edgetrim. For the suede chukka, I really think the Inca or Alcudia (round/almond toe) would look better than the Rain or Simpson (squareish toe).

 

Enough takers to make snuff suede happen? Or we could see what suede colors Mike pulls out.

For the purple, something like this, purple calf with a purple suede plug.

For the 5-eye chukka, I had a few ideas:
  • Dark brown calf
  • Cognac or navy shell
  • Pebble grain, like the Thompson PTB.

That last one seems like it would be kind of unique but fitting with the last and chukka shape. I really like the texture of the leather when I saw it in person. For reference:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I am having the left 3 made but I loved the color of the loafer so I had it pictured.

  your blue suede is the reason i ended up with a couple bontoni & you are right, the color of that right loafer is great but the style is too close to one i already have.

  any idea of the name or model of the third loafer (?)  from the right on the top row of your pic ?

  i have that in the SF dreaded black in production to be delivered @ some point this lifetime.

  pebbled tan / caramel similar to the g&g tan color would be a nice one. what would you think of norvegese (sp) stitching with that ?

I agree. Not too keen on the tassels though.

I am happy to hear that! Bontonis are awesome! They were all custom models so I couldnt tell you the name. All the shoes I had were specially made just for trunk show to show variety and color

Agreed, but dark navy would be bad as fuck
