What is your favorite loafer design? I like the J.M.Weston classic penny loafer and their new Claridge loafer, which is not an apron design - it looks a bit like a whole cut, but slip on.

Is "loafer" strictly an American term?

I really like the Alfred Sargent Hughes, though I'd like it even more without the medallion.

I also really like slip-ons with elastic across the instep, but those really aren't loafers.

For more traditional Norwegian casuals I like the Edward Green Winchelsea.

Agreed. That one simple seam adds just the right amount of visual interest.

I like the classic 180 Weston. If the Claridge was available in a colour other than black it would be perfect. It's a gorgeous shoe, but I don't like black slip-ons.

I hope to own a pair of Mertons in the not too distant future:
