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).

Really like a couple of the RL shoes on sale but unfortunately they are not the EG shoes but the Italian ones. For >$500, they're just not that great of a deal.

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...

WHAT?!? If I had a day off I'd spend the $50 on that shuttle in Port Authority!

This model doesn't do much for me.

well, it's always crap shot with woodbury, plus too many EBay seller that just buys them all, unless you know someone who live near by, always more misses than hits...

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.

that's my pair. it's NOS.

It looks like an item for sale on eBay, or from a store. This style may not be shown in the latest catalog, and it may not be something normally stocked, but it certainly can be purchased as a MTO shoe.

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 am looking for thoughts on the 184 last (a last I do not have) - e.g., short/long, snug, TTS, etc.

I am considering the Belgravia loafer in a D width.

Thanks in advance.

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.

Plenty of beautiful shoes in this thread!
I've been eyeing the Chelsea 202 black cap toe oxford for a while. It's quite likely that a pair will be contained in my luggage once I return from a trip to London later this month:)

^^ I have it on the 202 and highly recommend it. nod[1].gif
