  • Needlepoint Strap Stitched by Hand
  • Full Grain Leather Upper (from Argentina)
  • Leather Sole
  • Fully Leather Lined

  • When you pair premium, luxury hand-stitched needlepoint with artisan leather craftsmanship and shoe design, you come up with something special.
  • Every man loves his high end horse bit loafers. Now Smathers & Branson has created a bit loafer that stands apart from the rest, showcasing a bit (sorry!) of personality.
  • Old Glory never had it so good, and that horse bit looks might fine when paired with our favorite flag.
  • More subtle than their iconic belts, these Smathers & Branson loafers can hold their own with business suits or casual shorts.

Let’s lay out the facts. You’re here either because you’re preppy, you know someone who’s preppy, or you heard how incredibly handsome, sophisticated, and witty we are. As a betting institution, CCP has its money on the first option (and/or the third).

You’re in the right place. Country Club Prep’s mission in business and in life is to find the best preppy designers out there and to bring them to you under one metaphorical roof. Think of us as Zappos for preppy clothing.

When you’re looking for something preppy - ANYTHING PREPPY - visit CCP first. It’s our job to carry that item, but if we don’t, guess what - we’ll tell you where to find it. Your complete satisfaction is just that important to us.

If you’ve browsed the website, then you already know - there’s a veritable cornucopia of reasons to buy your preppy products from CCP. Incredible selection from incredible designers? Check. Unrivaled membership rewards? Double check. Outstanding customer service and an overriding desire to give you the best possible shopping experience? Triple check (so many preppy pink and green checks...).

We’re adding new designers and products to CCP every day. Literally. If there’s a designer that you love that we don’t currently carry, let us know. Send us an email at customerservice [at] countryclubprep [dot] com. If it’s a good fit, we’ll make it happen.

For that matter, feel free to contact us for any reason (not involving manual labor). We’re happy to help, and we’re always eager to show you why preppy has a home.

Luxurious all day comfort in classic distinctive elegant style

This stylish pair fit true to size and afforded buttery soft comfort right out of the box for a full day's wear. Highly recommended for quality construction and fit at a fraction of the cost of similar styled bit loafers in a distinctive pattern that you will not see coming and going. Placed the order and it arrived in just days expertly packaged. Tempted to buy another pair in alternate style.
