The Horse Bit loafer was a staple in 1960’s and 70’s American menswear. One need look no further than Jason Robard’s character, Ben Bradlee, in the 1976 film All The President’s Men for evidence of these iconic shoes in the field. We recommend pairing the loafers with some light knitwear from Alan Paine and F.O.B. cords for a casual 1960’s feel.
