Do you mean a 270 degree handwelt? Haven’t heard of 180 before. Is that the Japanese waist thing from a few years back? I would like the waist as tight as can be with rolled edges (is that bombe treatment?) and a fiddleback.If it makes it easier, I'd prefer the 74945 to the 946. The loafer I linked is also on the 74945. The 74945 has a slightly lower instep than the 946 and is a round toe instead of a square toe.
I'd also suggest a 180 degree handwelt (like the loafer I linked) and a black single leather sole. You can see an example of the sole I'm talking about on my gatoraides here:
That being said I'd also be open to a vibram topy on a single leather sole.
I had been thinking the same model as the current Skoak Color 8 loafer, but in black calf. Croc or Gator strap is an interesting idea and I’d be open to that.
I have a loafer in that model you suggested. I like the look but my issue is a practical one. The vamp goes up high and the angle is such that it catches on my trousers a lot. I also thought the full strap makes the sides feel/look a bit bulky.
I’d prefer the 804 last but could compromise on 74945. I’m not a fan of the 946.
In a perfect world I’d prefer a leather sole. Black sole is completely fine.
