Lobb Rio, Corthay Massai, or Weston #180. Aubercy has a tassle loafer that I saw in a magazine that seemd nice.

+100 I just don't get side-gusset slip-ons.

The EG Parson is a bit nicer than the eden in my opinion.

^^^ Eh. The broguing just puts a shallow glaze over the underlying hideousness.

I'd like the Eden were it just a bit taller and squared off at the top. I'd like a low chelsea, but they're hard to find. Disappointingly, I initially thought the Eden was what I was looking for, but twas not.

Or just a plain old Gucci horsebit? The classic type?




At first I thought you were kidding. I just can't go there with you, especially on the Gucci.

There's also the Harrow from Edward Green which is somewhat more "classic".

Thanks FNB. These are a MTO EG Tewkesbury.

The original version is classic collegiate/Yankee with a touch of Palm Bitch. I still remember a pair from college that ended being duct-taped for a month or two before tossing.

The fact that the originals are so unpopular now with so many bastardized versions and imitators is just icing on the cake. If I add the fact that Fuuma and edmorel hate it, my love simply grows stronger.

I wear them with relish and they are still as comfy as they ever were. Iconic goodness. The calf versions are great with cords.

That's like refusing potato chips at a steakhouse bar.

+1. I have a pair that my father gave me from the 70s that are classic black with burgundy/navy grosgrain horsebits.

They rock!

Would link a pic, but Ron's got the Wordpress site down for renovation. My other favorite style is this, at Brooks Brothers, New and Lingwood, C&J, Sanders, Alfred Sargent, etc. Am not a fan of the similar versions w/ the exposed gussets. To me a loafer should be clean and simple, no tassles, no butterflys, no bits. Maybe some broguing, or a penny strap would be OK, imo
