    Trying to find a loafer similar to the J Crew Ludlow... half strap, low stitching, sort of contrasting heel and that nice dark brown color. It is pretty sharp but doesn't sound too comfortable from the reviews.

      Dirt cheap.

        The word quality in the thread title brings to mind a show Mephisto has made for maybe 20+ years now. Goes by the name is Cap Vert, IMO the Rust color is as nice as it gets in a slip on loafer, the Cordovan color is just a bit dressier.





        Edit to add: The width is just slightly more than an Allen Edmonds "E" width, (not EE, single E).

        I's place the Allen Edmonds mentioned a close second...

          It's definitely worth it to wait until you want to order two pairs, that way you feel the shipping is worth it. The lasts are a bit different depending on which shoe you order. i.e. I started out with the double monks in 9.5 UK / 10.5 US and they fit snug (not uncomfortable). I then ordered the string loafers in the same size and they are a bit loose. At the same time, I also ordered a pair of Group MTO Cherry Boots and those are tight; hope they loosen up after a number of wears. I'm guessing StyleForum may have more detailed description of the various lasts but at the end of the day they are, relatively speaking, true to size.

                  True. Sizes startin to thin out though. Thought 34.50 was damn good deal. Eighteen would be just crazy if they were still available

                    In my experience, most good items sell out before Friday.

                      I've got a pair. I found them to be fairly wide (and just a touch short).

                        That's the fun part about OTC. It's like a game of chicken.

                              Last year I converted from slip on sneakers to boat shoes. I like the preppy look while still being casual enough to wear with shorts and polos. But the penny loafers always look like they are in a no mans land to me. They seem too dressy for shorts but too chunky for wool dress pants. Especially the cheaper ones that have shiny leather.

                                I definitely feel like non-shiny leather and a natural sole hit the penny loafer sweet spot for me. Unfortunately it's tough to find an inexpensive option with those attributes.
