Grant Stone Renders its Horsebit Loafer in Two Gorgeously Earthy Suedes

Ivy heads are going to be chomping at the (horse) bit for Grant Stone‘s latest loafers. The Michigan shoemakers have introduced their horsebit loafers in two new delicious shades of brown—a light brown bourbon and darker espresso.

Both pairs of loafers are crafted in Grant Stone’s factory in Xiamen Island, China, where their co-founder spent eight years learning the craft. No stone has been left unturned in terms of quality—they’re Goodyear-welted, have handsewn moc toe stitching, and even the horsebits themselves are solid brass. They haven’t shirked on the materials either. These are made from Charles F Stead‘s Repello calf suede, a fine-napped calf suede fully treated with Scotch Guard during the tannage. The suede is complemented by full-grain kip leather lining and a leather outsole.

Both pairs work casual or formal, looking as good with selvedge denim and a crisp white tee as they do with chinos and a madras button-down for the true Ivy look. The only real decision to make is socks or no socks.

Available at Grant Stone for $348.
