    I like the gucci bit loafers. Have they gone on sale in the past, or does Gucci only sell for full retail?

    Are Gucci loafers shoes that can be restored, like AE's and Bruno Magli can have the heel and sole replaces and the uppers restored to look new? If I am going to drop $600+ on Gucci, I would like some reassurance it will last a long time and not just a couple years.

    Please, if you own Gucci tell me your experience and post photos of your Gucci. Thanks. I would like to see how they look after a couple years of wear.

    lot of the gucci loafers do go on sale at winter close to xmas time. in the spring they get shipped off to the factory stores for 50% off in midyear.

    ive had a few gucci shoes. and the loafers (the classic bit loafer ones) do last a long time. ive only had them for about a 1.5 years but they had plenty of life left and never needed resoling but ymmv due to how you walk and where and frequency.

    there is a shit ton of Gucci shoes at Off 5th right now. literally - you can stack up a wall of those gold shoe boxes. i don't believe there are many bit loafers though, but there are certainly a shitload of tassel and penny loafers (as well as sneakers, weird looking oxfords, and others)

    Google gucci outlet stores for the nearest location. They seem to always have some loafers discounted. Purchased the bit loafer back in 76. They were still wearing well until they were stolen 10 years later.[​IMG] Both pairs below are well constructed and fit good[​IMG]

    your lack of superlative adjectives to describe them such as "decadent" or "beefy" makes me doubt the 'niceness' of that pair. [​IMG]

    How good is the Gucci selection at Neiman Marcus Last Call? They are having a midnight madness sale tonight (12am to 8am) and everything in the store is an additional 25% off. How does Last Call compare to Nordstrom Rack?
