Red Clay Soul has a nice post on the bit loafer today: http://www.redclaysoul.com/?p=10120#comment-177262

In the comments is a link to a post on Ivy Style, also from today: http://www.ivy-style.com/bits-in-pieces ... gucci.html

An interesting development, to say the least. It appears that this has also led to the discontinuation of the Dexter 1957 Gilford, which was a great affordable bit loafer (rumor was that it was the same shoe that Alden was selling in their Cape Cod line, which makes sense).

Fortunately, Gucci didn't invent the penny loafer.

Should Alden now restrict others from making a tassel loafer?

Very odd. The story doesnt seem right as presented. This also seems like an opportunity for Rancourt.

Thankfully I have two pair of the Dexters. I believe they were discontinued a few years ago at least.

As someone has mentioned bit loafers and someone else has mentioned penny loafers, this may be a good time to remind everyone if you put quarters, rather than pennies, in your penny loafers you then have two bit loafers, which are twice as good as bit loafers.
