J.M. Weston and Maison Kitsuné have partnered for an exclusive new loafer. The New Yorker loafer is only available in New York, sold exclusively from April 19th at Maison Kitsuné at NoMad – New York (1170 Broadway) and at J.M. Weston (600 Madison Avenue). According to Kitsuné:
This version of the major classic makes use of materials by combining smooth, almost glazed calfskin and grainy black calfskin whose sheen recalls the caviar-like grain of shagreen. All the finishings (sole edge, welt wheel stitch separating on heel, inner lining) were also stained black, to emphasize the dinner suit inspiration of this loafer. While J.M. Weston traditionally mounts its loafers using Goodyear stitching, this design uses Blake stitching for a more flexible, relaxed shoe which is particularly appreciated by Masaya Kuroki.
