penny loafers

Recommended Posts

this thread is dedicated to penny loafers-- something that isn't traditionally "sufu approved" but here goes...

i'm looking for a pair of classic, elegant penny loafers

something youthful, without "old trad dude" connotations

something in a luxe cordovan or suede would be nice...

are there any names beyond the usual american/british suspects? lesser known shoemakers?

Something from London-Brown? Tassel loafers, penny loafers, and the suede variety. If they ship outside of Thailand maybe they would be worth a gander.

I have two pairs of penny loafers that I really like, one from Prada and one from Burberry Prorsum. Not exactly "traditional" but still dressy and look great with slim cropped trousers. Both have a thick sole and are very comfortable.

Also really like the Saint Laurent loafers:

Wanted the Burberry's so bad that season.

You're thinking of YSL?

They came in a boot version as well, both were somewhat underwhelming in person...

Prada makes some decent slip-on loafers, no frills no nonsense and take well to a shine.

imo classic penny loafers necessarily indicate conservatism with a splash of douche. they're not going to be the thing in your outfit that make you rebellious

if you want to switch it up i'm sure there's mcnairy version; the visvims above are classic with a twist so that might work too.

I actually visited the London Brown store today, their stuff seemed very nice, I might go back to inquire how long the wait for a custom brogue would be
