    TUM,

    It's possible that they're Italian, but some of the English makers also have loafers with a more chiselled toebox, including Cheaney and C&J.

    Here's an example from C&J:

    I'm not sure whether the ones in the picture are made from museum calf, or whether they've just developed some colour variation and patina through wear and polishing.

    It's also possible that they're from Vass or a Euro maker.

    Thanks Journeyman.

    I was thinking they were possibly Vass also; maybe their U last?

    Regarding the colour variation, you're right, it is hard to tell whether it's wear/treatment or museum calf. They're certainly a beautifully rich brown regardless.

    I would love if anyone could ID them!
