Alternatively, if you like a more traditional, softer toe, you could look at Loake - click here.

I imagine you have a few hours a week spare that could go to a worthy cause?

Good to see there are some young lads on the forum that have their priorities straight. Heads screwed on, well done.

Suede double monk meerkats make you feel good but they are not important.

Thanks Journeyman! I was looking at the Loake Temple, though, I think if I get them, I'll probably go for the Alden tassel loafer. Is it true that the style of shoe was invented by Alden?

I noticed that the Loake's are made on the 'loafer last' - does anyone here have experience with this particular last?

Likely nothing will come of this. 30 minutes spent internet searching, etc. but just thought I'd share..

Retail giant David Jones announced new lower everyday prices yesterday and it denies its margins have been inflated, claiming the reduced prices are the result of "continuing negotiation" with international brands.

The department store's "Lower Everyday Prices" program has secured price reductions of up to 50% across hundreds of products in categories such as fashion, beauty, accessories, shoes, homewares and electronics.

David Jones said the reductions are not temporary savings but ongoing, lower everyday prices.
