Take ivy with Grant Stone’s Tassel Loafer, an affordable entry point to a sturdy dress shoe, that you can wear on or off-campus. Cut from Italian Calf leather in both polished and suede variants, they’ll be oozing mid-century cool wherever your feet are taking you.
Wear these loafers to graduation along with your tailored trousers, a pressed Oxford, and even the valedictorian’s gonna be jealous of your fit. A vintage t-shirt and chinos works, too. Loafers just work, they’re easy to slip on, and they’ll age as well as any of your other functional/durable clothes do. I’m excited just thinking about how those tassels will look when they’re a few years worn.
Available in a variety of Calfskin leathers from tobacco to coffee suede, they feature Goodyear-welted construction on Grant Stone’s Alexander shoe last, leather kip lining, a steel shank, and a roomy toe box for your wide toe splay. Each pair is made in China by skilled shoemakers and finished with a veg tan leather insole, welts, and outsole.
Available for $260 in the Heddels Shop
