It might surprise you to learn that water-repellent suede is sturdy, durable, and easy to maintain. And it looks fantastic, especially when fashioned into a shoe style as iconic as the Bernard Tassel Loafer. With or without socks, this model of the Bernard Tassel Loafers will add a special touch to your day-to-day looks. Refined and versatile, with inherent elegance, you can easily wear them with your favorite jeans, relaxed trousers and casual suits.
This product is made from naturally water-repellent suede sourced from a Gold-Rated tannery based in Arzignano, Italy. Being the highest level of recognition awarded by the Leather Working Group, a Gold rating signifies the leather manufacturer meets the most stringent criteria and demonstrates a strong commitment to mitigating its environmental impact.
Based on classic designs, all of our shoes are crafted to outlast trends and be as stylish in the years to come as they are today. This makes them an excellent investment, especially since you won’t have to replace them as tastes change. You’ll always be in fashion when wearing them with suits, jeans, chinos or trousers.
To ensure your shoes have a firm, stable shape and structural integrity, we humidify the leather of the upper and place it on a foot-shaped mold called a last. There it air dries for at least 72 hours during which time the shape solidifies, and the leather fibers bond together. This guarantees your shoes will retain their shape for a very long time.
Stitched soles are the mark of quality footwear. With the Blake method, a row of stitching attaches the upper, insole, midsole and outsole. This results in a sturdy yet extremely comfortable shoe, plus it’s easy to resole when the time comes.
Treated with natural components during the tanning process to be water-repellent, the fuzzy surface of our supple calfskin suede looks beautiful and will age gracefully. It’s also relatively easy to maintain with the right brushes and natural care products.
A wholecut piece of soft Vachetta leather lines the interior of your shoes to smooth over any joints or seams. Its natural temperature regulating, moisture absorbing, odor controlling and breathability properties will also keep your feet fresh and comfortable.
The soles are crafted from full-grain, veg-tan leather bends which give you an excellent balance between comfort and sturdiness. Robust yet flexible, this material is prized for its beauty, durability and practicality. It’s also easy to replace when needed.
Abrasion resistant SBR rubber heel caps give you extra traction, support and resilience. They’re attached with serrated brass tacks for extra reinforcement which add to the solid construction and longevity of the heel.
Strong, flexible and resistant to wear and tear, waxed thread weaves easily through leather and acts as a sealant against moisture, mildew and dirt. It keeps your items intact and won’t unravel due to the lock stitching method we use.
