How difficult is it for a cobbler to change the bits on bit loafers, from gold bits to silver bits? Where can one source replacement bits other than from the original maker?

Yes! I want a pair of leather soled chocolate suede bit loafers, non beefroll with a silver bit. The closest I have found is Alden with a gold bit. Someone tell me this is an easy and cheap swap and that all cobblers can match the bit exactly
