Ferragamo Bits

By all means am I a Bit Loafer fan.  I wear them all the time.  I generally prefer the Martin Dingman or Oak Street Bootmakers bits, and the Onward Reserve Pace bits are a great adaptation as well.

However, East Dane just picked up one of my favorite pair: the Salvatore Ferragamo Fiordi Double Gancio Bit Loafers in the tan/gold bit option.  These are actually a little tough to find, but are unique enough to stand out from my usual line up.  These aren’t really a casual loafer, but can be worn with good jeans, a dress shirt, and a sport coat.  You don’t need jazzy socks (ever), so stick with solid navy.

Here are a few more views:

You a fan?

    These are awful. If you’re in the market for SFs, the Goodwill on Roswell has multiple pairs as of this afternoon…

    I just got Oak Street Bootmakers Tan Suede Bit Loafers. Fit is great. I love them so far. The color in person is a little darker than I was expecting off the photos. I was hoping for a little lighter ( like the photos) for a good all around spring color but they are great regardless. Quoddy also makes some great loafers with a sporty bottom for a more all purpose/occasion wear.

    Not a fan of Cole Haan or Alden’s bit loafers?
