Black penny loafer in Arlington leather. A classic and a bit "preppy".
The Classica Collection is our first and still most popular line. Hand-lasted and welted by hand, it features our signature "swallow bird" burgundy shank sole, which is sewn by hand with a traditional Duer machine.
The term preppy derives from the private, university-preparatory schools ("prep schools") that some American upper class and upper middle class children attend.
Part of our Classica Collection, these shoes come with individual wool dust bags, lasted wooden shoe trees and our leather maintenance kit with wax and small brush, all in a beautiful wooden box for proper storage.
Material: Hatched Arlington leather
Product Code: C1330
The S last, with its classic and regular fit, is the square-toe version of the C last. The slight chisel nose gives shoes made on this last a professional and conservative look. The chisel is mild and gentle in the Essenziale and Classica line while in is enhanced by the sharp construction of the Tradizione line.
