We got challenged to make a loafer, a long time customer came to us and said he wanted to wear some MMM loafers so we got to the drawing board, dissected some old patterns we found in vintage stores and came up with this. To be debuted in a beef roll and pinch version each season, its a little weird for us but we like it and we got to make one of our good friends happy.
Each stitch is sewn by a craftsmen or women with over 20 years experience making footwear. True moccasin construction allows a shoe to wrap, shape, and mold to your foot and will only get more and more out of it the longer you have and wear them. The vamp and kicker are hand sewn by awl and needle, not prepunched like 90% of other boat shoes you find. This allows the shoe to be crafted onto the last, and the handsewer uses their skill to adjust and fit the shape, so that each shoe starts out a bit different, and ready to take the shape of your foot.

It's recommended to size down half a size from your normal dress shoe sizing. If you know your size in other true handsewns, it's best to stick with that in ours.
