This is LOAFERing on my mind....

post #1 of 5

Get it?

 

Anyway, I am in the market for a new pair of loafers; penny or tassel I do not discriminate.

 

I want a nice looking pair that I will wear a few times a week, then throw away, so nothing too high-end.

 

Things to note, I am in the UK so they have to be readily available here.

 

My current suggestions are possible Weejuns, H by Hudson < read bad things about their quality, possibly the Classic Sebago if I can find a pair cheap enough (damn UK).

 

Any comments on my suggestions or further option very much appreciated!

 

Kind regards

So if something was loafering that would mean it is being lazy and sleeping in, so this question is being lazy and hanging around in my mind.

 

I hope this is clear enough for anyone who is struggling with the little play on words :)

Still don't get it, but no matter...

 

If you're going to be in London at some point, you may want to look in New & Lingwood on Jermyn Street. Last time I was there (a few weeks ago) they still had some shoes left from their winter sale, the majority of which were loafers. They were heavily discounted, although I wouldn't necessarily characterise these as shoes to throw away. It may be worth phoning ahead to check that the sale stock is still available.

 

Otherwise, you could do worse than look for a second-hand pair here or on eBay.

Thanks alot for the heads up, I'll have a look online see if I can read up about New & Lingwood, may be worth the journey as I am playing on a trip to London soon. If they are at a throw away price, I'll take em aha, maybe I can spend a little over budget.

 

I've been looking on Ebay, there is a lovely pair of Crombie tassel loafers on there,£50 starting bidding, anyone interested give them a search, size 11.5, bit too big for me :(
