This is our Hampton penny loafer. This pair is in a beautiful, hand finished chestnut patina. We also have them in other colours - tan, oxblood, blue, brown suede and black.
Full grain calf leather
They are all hand crafted in Italy, using the finest materials such as full grain calf leather. They have a leather saddle - with a slot for the penny, from which the loafer gets its name. Penny loafers have a stitched apron. We include discrete elastic gussets to make them easier to put on, and for comfort, they also allow for a slightly higher instep.
Chestnut hand finished patina
The chestnut patina has been applied by hand, making every pair unique with subtle variations in colour. You can see a darker line from the toe to the top line.
Craftsmanship/attention to detail
The top line is neat, no raw edges, as we taper or ‘skyve’ the edge, then fold and stitch it. Also more comfortable if you’re not wearing socks. Inside the heel, we use suede in the rear counter to stop your heel from slipping. The loafer has a full calf leather lining. This helps absorb moisture and prolong the life of the shoe. And we use a genuine full leather insole.
Stitched leather sole
The sole is stitched onto the upper with a traditional Italian method called blake stitching. Th is an in-channel, lock stitching, so even if one stitch was worn or breaks the others will still be locked in place. There is a rubber insert for added wear and better grip.
Stacked leather heel
There is a 25mm leather stacked, heel, held with 4 brass pins, and a rubber piece for better wear and grip. There is a ‘gentleman’s corner’, a small bevel to reduce snagging of the heel on your trousers. So that is our tan penny loafer, a beautifully made high quality shoe, that with care should give you many years of enjoyment.
