Ralph Lauren Darlton Cordovan Penny Loafers
Recently, I purchased a pair of Ralph Lauren Darlton Cordovan Penny Loafers. Without a doubt, Ralph Lauren makes the most comfortable cordovan shoes around. My first Polo cordovan purchase was his tassel loafers, and I love them equally.
The shoes are made by Crockett & Jones, and again, I find them far superior in comfort to my Alden Cordovan Shoes & my Allen Edmonds. They are expensive though priced for around $800, but they are worth every penny. However, you can occasionally find them on sale at Polo, or find a slightly used pair on eBay for about half price.
My favorite way to wear them is with gray flannels or jeans while paired with yellow socks. Grab a pair, you will love them!
P.S. ADG, I finally figured out how to make them shine again....use Brooks Brothers Dark Brown Shoe Cream. With a little muscle, they will look like new again.
