For those of you not ready to step into the realm of the loafer, Quoddy's pebbled leather slip on might be a good option this spring. The east coast American footwear brand has definitely been gaining some steam in the last few seasons with collaborations with Albam and Rogues Gallery. It is their own in-house collection that really does it for me however. Their bluchers, boat shoes and ring mocs are really beautiful shoes with the hand made quality a lot of us are looking for these days. For some reason South Willard seems to be the only shop the carries their collection and seem to have an exceptionally good retail price as well. I'm not sure how it works that they retail them for less than they are to order from Quoddy, but either way it's good. The slip on is a pretty versatile shoe that you could wear as slippers, with chinos and maybe even 'tha club' if you were so inclined. The pebbled black leather is a great touch and beautiful finish, I would recomend to anybody looking to buy and wear shoes.
