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?
