Available now in the British Tan, and the 10 and 10 1/2 have just sold out.  If I’m not mistaken, these are the only 100% Made in the USA beefroll loafers on the market…..correct me if I am wrong.

We also have delivered the first run of the weltline strap penny (RBHS2) in both the Burgundy & the British Tan calfskin:


Go get ’em!
