G.J. Cleverley - De Rede (tassel loafer)

For the day I have sampled a beautiful loafer made by the well known English bespoke boot and shoemaker house, GJ Cleverley and it is part of their Anthony Cleverley range offerings. The loafer is named De Rede in honour of Baron De Rede a former client of Cleverley's. It's a loafer with a great deal details, the bow and tassel makes this loafer very unique.

The first pictures of the De Rede loafer in pigskin made for Mr. Will Boehlke (A Suitable Wardrobe). I like the rendition of the De Rede loafer in pigskin hide, as the grain texture and the colouring of the hide brings the little artistic details of this loafer out to the world, which otherwise would be taken for granted. Note that Mr. Boehlke opted for a more round toe than the squared (suede version) and the loafer gets a new dimension of beauty. Now I have to mention that Mr. Boehlke is a man/gent obsessed with details, no wonder the pairing of this loafer with the grey socks and trousers makes it so elegant to the viewer and ...... I wish to own a pair. Well done Mr. Boehlke. Thanks for your blog, a source of inspiration and of learning.
