Each pair of our classic horsebit loafers is skillfully crafted using traditional techniques. As as greater level of sophistication we have crafted ours from hand burnished Italian PU suede and given them a PU lining for added structure and support. Each pair is bottomed with our watertight rubber outsole, it is oil treated for water and abrasion resistance. The signature snaffle bit hardware that gives this loafer it’s name is made from nickel plated antique brass in Japan.
The horsebit loafer is another one of those timeless pairs of shoes that embodies the preppy or Ivy style of dress. One of the first styles of shoe to bridge the gap between dress and casual, some would say that you never wear these loafers with socks. They are best paired with dress slacks or chinos with a polo or oxford shirt.
