Penny Loafers

Postby Em Eye » Thu, 08 Sep 2005 4:47 pm

I know they are a shoe with a tassell at the front but why are they called penny loafers?

Penny loafers don't have a tassle. That is a tassle top loader Penny loafers have a slot you can really put a penny for good luck.

Yeepie, SE is correct but you don't have to put a penny in them if you don't own one. You can just loaf about in them instead!!! If you do have a penny it is always best to 'spend it'!!! :D

Thanks!

Doesn't the German saying go something like: to earn the dollar respect the penny?

Wer den Taler nicht ehrt ist des Pfennigs nicht Wert.


Roughly translated:
One who does not hinor the dollar is not worth havinga Penny.

It all boils down to appreciation

Seriously Vaucluse, what's up with all the typos? Sticky keyboard or in a hurry to type?
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.
