1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Calling all average-sized members of the forum! I am in search of a pair of brown suede (preferably snuff or camel) penny loafers. What I'm looking for is essentially a Crockett & Jones Sydney for the man who should just add everything at Meermin to his cart (sorry, his email cart) and learn to not covet his neighbor's kicks (Meermin only has dark brown available and I've heard murmurs of tightness where there belongs looseness and vice versa and that darn Ron last). The proverbial champagne taste on a beer budget if you will.

    To get specific I am looking for a slightly more formal toe shape with the stitching recessed from the toe, as seen on the Sydney (3rd photo) and the light brown Meermin loafer (2nd), and not all the way to the toe as seen in the dark brown Crockett & Jones in the first picture.

    I'm willing to pay around and slightly above $200, but would like to stay at a nice "these old things?" price point. This is summer after all and I'd rather not break out in hives at the site of grass in the path of me and my too-lightly-colored-to-be-practical EG Piccadillys.

    Adieu

    I do have a very nice pair of Teign's size 9.5UK but they are in dark brown suede.

    So close to perfect! I'm going to keep looking for a pair in snuff, but I'll pm you if I settle on dark brown.

    Thanks!
