Styles mentioned in this thread:
I love EGs but I have to say their bit loafer looks forced. Some certainly more acceptable than others, but none really inspiring to me at all and certainly over priced relative to other offerings.
There are a few other loafers in that catalogue which should be brought back long before their version of the bit.
The large metal eyelets make it look a bit mall-cop to me. I wonder why you went with those vs. their standard laces holes (which usually have reverse sunken metal eyelets, doing the same job pretty much).
Someone posted that some of the made in Italy for RLPL in woodbury is going for 90% off..., so 1250 becomes 125, I would get 3 pairs in my size if I ever bother to drive to woodbury...
edit: besides a shoe maker I am not sure anyone can say the made in Italy RLPL is not as good as EG, at least I couldn't tell...
This model doesn't do much for me.
came across a vintage EG catalog...
did not realize that EG once did a bit loafer...the Millfield looks quite interesting...
Don't they still do?
I've never seen the appeal of horsebit loafers, though, especially since the Gucci versions are so repulsive. Flashy, blingy and offputting in their inelegance.
where is that image from? I did not see that in their current catalog.
Unlike some other forum members, I enjoy a bit loafer. It's a casual style, but there is a time and place for nearly everything. However, I am less than fond of the above black pair with gold hardware. Cheers.
I completely disagree. The Gucci version is the real deal and, when worn with a properly aged pair of khakis and tweed jacket, look fantastic. The EG version are too big, too clunky and, suprisingly, too flashy.
