    Searching for a Penny Loafer

    Wondering if anyone knows of a Penny Loafer that has a longer construction. By which I mean, less opening around the foot, covers more of the foot, more length on the top. If anyone knows of a loafer that fits that description, please let me know. Thanks a lot.

    Penny Loafer Review Thread

    I am currently, like many others before me, searching for the perfect penny loafer. There is a vast amount of information on weejuns/penny loafers on this forum, but it takes a lot of work to find it all. I thought it would be a helpful move to have it all in one place, for reference, in a...

    Penny Loafers

    I know many people consider Alden the gold standard, but what would be the recomendation for a college student on a tighter budget. I know there are tons of makers, which is the best quality for the money, or is it a personal thing? Thanks for any help/advice.

    Penny loafers: with or without pennies?

    I wore my new Weejuns to work this past week and almost everyone asked why I didn't have pennies in them! What is "proper"?

    Pennies In Penny Loafers

    ...dinner, etc. I wanted to get an extra pair to knock around in. So, I went to one of our local thrift stores and picked up a pair of Bass Penny Loafers for $1.98. They are in great condition and I am thinking about putting pennies in them. I will wear them to knock around in. My question...

    Pennies in penny loafers?

    Riding the DC Metro the other day, I saw a fellow who had put pennies in the diamond slits in his penny loafers... Is that a grotesque fox paws, as George Wallace once said, or am I missing something?

    I am a recent college grad starting a job on Wall Street in the near future. I have been searching for a pair of penny loafers that are dressy enough to wear to work but also suitable to wear on weekends with a pair of shorts. After some research I think I have decided on the following in...

    penny loafers

    Hey Trad, I am a preppy guy who likes to wear penny loafers sockless with jeans, chinos, and a blazer for a dressier look. Any suggestions for what brand of tassled loafers? Thanks, Ed

    penny loafers

    I really like the preppy look- espcially wearing dress penny or tassled loafers without socks- they go great with chinos, jeans, dress shirt and a blazer for a dressier look. Any opinions?

    Penny Loafers

    Where does a POOR college student (poor being the operative word) find some penny loafers that aren't hard and stiff like Weejuns, but look halfway decent? I'm looking for something somewhat soft right out of the box.

    Sebago Cayman I?

    Hello all, I saw a nice pair of "original Cayman" Sebago loafers for cheap on the 'Bay. I know everyone swears by Cayman II's but what about Cayman I's? Are they acceptable?

    When to wear "Weejuns" (penny loafers)

    I just purchased a wardrobe staple for the first time in years. The penny loafer, or Weejun style shoe. I stayed away from Bass and upped the ante to a pair from Geox, as I like the idea of breathability in a loafer that may sometimes be worn sockless. I guess what I'm asking here is... how...

    Ever Put A Penny In A Penny Loafer?

    I for one never have, not even when I was in high school so many years ago. Anyone here who used to do it? Anyone here who still does? :o Buzz

    UK penny loafer options

    Gents, I do not own a pair of penny loafers at the moment. There are threads aplenty on them but - at least as far as I could find - the discussion is generally more US-centric. For those of us in the UK and Ireland, can anyone advise me on what are some good options for a pair? I am looking...

    Review: Rancourt Penny Loafer.

    Around the end of May I decided that I wished to add a another pair of penny loafers to my wardrobe as they meet a lot of practical needs and I like them. In particular, I had been taken with the looks of a particular pair Rancourt offers, and I'd always been intrigued with what I read about...

    For the Love of Penny Loafers.

    I love penny loafers. In many ways, I consider them the perfect shoe. I probably spend 90% of my time in khakis near home, and there are few outfits I might contrive, including those with sport jackets that wouldn't be enhanced by a pair of comfortable, simple pennies. I also have one pair of...

    Bench Made Penny Loafers

    Hello All! I'm interested in finding out if anyone can recommend a shoe maker who does bespoke classic penny loafers. There are very good custom makers that I have spoken with, but there's actually very little custom about their shoes, in terms of fit. Yes, you can get shoes made from just...
