Get Handsome With The Hand-sewn Alden x J.Crew Loafers
Whether you were them formally or casually, every man needs a good loafer. One that is durable, comfortable and timeless. Well luckily for you we’ve found two loafers that offer that and more. The American multi-brand, specialty retailer J.Crew is known to offer a large assortment of women’s, men’s, and children’s apparel along with a vast variety of accessories – including one of our favourite chino pants in the world.
For its latest collaboration, the American brand has grabbed none other than the Alden Shoe Company. Founded in 1884 in Massachusetts, the Alden Shoe Company is one of the oldest shoemakers in New England. The two brands have come together to craft two exclusive loafers, using the finest materials and time-and-tested techniques.

Alden x J.Crew Cordovan Penny Loafers
Alden x J.Crew cordovan penny loafers might be an online exclusive to J.Crew USA. However, they’re some of the best we’ve ever had our eyes on. Made in the USA, these classic penny loafers are crafted with a premium cordovan leather upper, durable lining and Goodyear welt sole. These classic penny loafers will mould to your feet over time, adding to the overall comfort. The Goodyear outsole means they can be resoled as many times as you see fit as they wear down with age. Like most leather pieces with age, they’ll develop a patina adding to the look.
