Ok, so let's say 6 people for the mid brown suede, unlined loafer with full strap, similar in design to the Foster & Son Aston (pretty standard design for a full strap loafer). Single leather sole and I would propose an antique edge dressing. Price would be €289.26 excl. VAT, the pattern charge is paid by me.

Who's in?

@SimonC, @Betelgeuse , @JT-PFT , @Thomas_M
Would you still use plastic hard countering in the toe box, or would it be completely unlined?

There is a toe puff, but is made from a much softer, more flexible, canvas-like material. You can easily press the toe with your thumb. I have an unlined version of the Utah penny loafer here with me, please see this video:

We're 4 now for the full strap Penny loafer, need 2 more. If we reach 5 and can't find a 6th, perhaps I can just keep the 6th and take product pictures, then sell it on the website as a one-off. But let's see if we can get to 6 first :) .

It shouldn't be that hard to find 2 more people to get on the perfect summer loafers train.
I cannot stress enough how happy I am with my brown utah loafers from Sons of Henrey.

What is the difference between penny and full strap?

A regular Penny loafer is what Thomas_M posted above, and full strap penny looks like this (picture courtesy of Carmina):

The strap extends from left to right.

Those look good! Well more pictures of loafers being worn would certainly help. 👍🏻

It's certainly much easier to adjust bigger/smaller sizes on laced up footwear versus loafers. Consequently, I believe the indecision concerning the loafers would be sizing not necessarily the color.

I have to say that while I have predominantly more regular pennies I think I prefer the fullstrap.

It might be my imagination but depending on color they can either be more or less smarter than your standard penny. Because of the pattern, they assuredly look different than what everyone else is wearing (in relation to standard pennies).
