My friend Mr. Allan Baudoin has come a long way since being just a young computer science student from Paris to launching his own bespoke shoe label ‘Allan Baudoin’ and now going one step further by entering the RTW shoe game with his famous Belgian loafer, the ‘Sagan’ under the name of Baudoin & Lange. It’s great as well as I saw Allan a long time struggling to find his niche and figure out how […]

Belgian Loafers Everywhere!

The smart casual world has blown up as of recent and in my opinion greatly with the help of Instagram. And many of the brands associated with this world are Italian ones that are fusing classic dress shoes models with casual soles. And the popular model that many of them share as a product offering is none other then the wonderful Belgian loafer. As seen here, the brand Superglamorous offer their version in 3 different […]

Proper Belgian Loafers by Velasca

  These are the best actual Belgian loafers that I have ever seen and that is because they have a proper sole to them. I was actually thinking of doing this one day too, but looks like Velasca beat me to it. Oh well! But well done on them as I think that this is the way they should really look. I am not quite so sure why I have such an aversion to paper […]

Rubinacci Loafers – Mesh-tastic!

There is nothing like a nice loafer. They are just so simple and easy, and go with so many different things, from suits to chinos to jeans to even shorts if you are feeling really really bold. And most loafers tend to look good, so long as they have a nice shape to them, like this elegantly round toe here, by Rubinacci for Zimmermann & Kim. Now some loafers look better than others, as would […]

Farfalla Shoes – The Armoury

There aren’t many shoes styles that I don’t own that I have been dying to get, but out of the few that there actually are, the Belgian styled loafer is definitely near the top! I have always been so curious about these unmistakeably distinguished loafers, mainly for the simple fact that the piping/bow always contrasts to the rest of the shoe, which as many of you know, is something (contrasting) that I quite fancy. I […]

Today’s Favorites – Don Ville Belgian Loafers

I have always been very intrigued by the Belgian loafer, yet have never really come across them in real life, only in pictures. And while that relationship remains the same, I have found a few that I absolutely love and will most likely look to commission in the near future when I can accumulate some disposable income. These models presented are by American bespoke/MTO shoemaker, Don Ville. While I really really like the one below […]
