Thanks!Thanks. I think the difference is on the side of the straps. On a more traditional Penny Loafer, it is machine stitched down. On the Penny Pinch Loafer, it is hand stitched down. I will also point out that with Rancourt’s moccasin shoe construction and hand stitching, the side/bottom are a single piece of leather and the vamp area is another separate piece of leather. They are joined together on the last during construction. On a more traditional loafer, such as Alden’s LHS, the apron stitch is decorative vice an attach point and is a skin stitch. Hope that helps some!

In this more side view, you can see the “pinching” of the strap to the side of the loafer.
