- Chromexcel Leather
- Colors Available
The Penobscot is a classic "beefroll" penny loafer - so named for the signature stitch detail on the sides. The upper on this particular iteration is an absolutely bonkers western floral print embossed Horween chromexcel. In person, the stamping effect is beautiful. Trapped in and around the print are all the oils naturally embedded in the chestnut colored chromexcel. This gives the shoe a handsome and delightfully peculiar variegation up close, while at a distance it appears to have a slightly ruddy burnish. They are truly in a class all to themselves.
Like all Epaulet Sewn by Hand footwear, the toe is hand-stitched and a padded footbed runs along the interior; and, if the sole wears out, a cobbler can easily replace it. This shoe is lined with soft glove calfskin.
