These snake print Pierre Hardy ‘Hardy’ loafers (below) are from the winter collection, so not out for a while. A shame as I love loafers in summer and I’m a bit bored of my Bass Weejuns.
But to compensate are these new ‘Barnard’ loafers from Horatio London(below). This brand is relaunching (I’ve not heard of them before) and these are Goodyear Welted and made in Italy. Goodyear Welted is a superior construction method that allows your soles to be easily replaced so your shoes last longer. I love this classic almond toe. I’ve been given a 25% discount code (enter the code ‘WELCOME’, until 10th July), which makes them about £145, with delivery middle of July from Horatio London.

What the hell does that mean? It referred to the often twee, not-quite-there brands that have good intentions but don’t quite cut it on execution and delivery. (more…)
