Loafers - Page 2

post #16 of 313
I have a pair of ultra simplistic Cleverly loafers that are quite easy and nice to wear.
That might suit you.

I've been wearing Gravati's that are high vamp, more chiseled last and completely unadorned with straps, buckles or tassels. I really had to overcome a gag reflex with loafers, but once I had them on and put them in my rotation, I've been wearing them a lot.

I used to despise them, but now I think a pair of side-gore loafers and a pair of regular loafers belongs in every shoe lineup.

I really like the shape of these BB clearance shoes, I wish they came in tan.

Just stumbled on this pair, see attachment. Anyone have thougts on what Alden last this can be on? Plaza? Never thought of that as a loafer LAST ... Possible sources? Priced at+500£ so must be less expensive stateside ... Might be the first pair of Aldens for me ... Thanks alden_cord_90897_2.jpg alden_cord_90897_1.jpg

These are actually pretty nice. There's also the Harrow from Edward Green which is somewhat more "classic".

I believe those are the same model I pointed out earlier in the thread. If so, they are indeed on the Plaza last. I've seen them in person. Very nice. Much sleeker than you'd expect from Alden.

I like the ferragamo, a nice high vamp.

I can't behind these, but maybe the Yuma/Lansford from Florsheim?

Where does one find side gussets? Gucci might be too Gucci. I had an uncle who wore Gucci loafers, and we called him the uncle in Gucci loafers. Apparently he was also a big Trabalza customer, as recently he commented that he had a sportcoat in the same fabric as the one I was wearing, and took me up to see his collection, while lamenting that he no longer has the chance to wear them in LA.

I have the dark brown suede version as well. I really like it vs a loafer because it still feels like a regular shoe, and not something that'll slip off if you move quickly. I bought them for travel, but find I wear them quite often.

Not the easiest shoe to find RTW. Ralph Lauren has an EG pair called the Eden. I don't like it. I like them best brogued, in suede.

I now know I've spent too much time on SF because I swear this is the second time I've read this story!

Anyway, I've been thinking about loafers recently too. I've not had any in a few years since I abandoned my old Bass.

I'm on the lookout for a great pair in suede. And that's my rec for you. Maybe Mantellassi?

I concur.
