"Hello, J.P.? Lissen, you tell those dumb bastids I won't take a goddamn nickel under the original offer!"
As if I didn't have anything better to do, such as find a job, I recently received two full strap loafers.
First up, a pair of seconds from Footjoy via an outfit called Golf Locker. Get on their email list, because every so often they have scads of Footjoy leather-soled dress shoes - seconds at around $120 and allegedly blemished shoes for around $90. A wide range of sizes and widths, too.
And hey - they are made in the USA. I think they give Allen Edmonds a run for the money, and even at full whack ($250 or so) beat the bejeesus out of poor old Johnston & Murphy, RIP.
Below, a pair of eBayed Allen Edmonds Randolphs. They will need new soles and heels in the near future. I love the heels on these.
This wraps up the Great Loafer Hunt for now. My quest is complete, and I have a loafer for every loafing-type occasion.
