Alligator Leather Millbank Bit Loafer (Gold Bit)
Please use our men's shoe size guide to help determine what size shoe best fits your foot. Our shoe sizing guide shows the converted measurements from US sizing to UK and EU sizes. We have also included measurements in both inches and centimeters. Please note that the measurements in centimeters and inches refer to the size of the shoe, not the size of the foot inside of the shoe. That said, please allow a few millimeters of clearance between the shoe measurement and your foot measurement to ensure the shoes will fit properly.
Our shoes are of a medium (D) width. For gentlemen who wear a wide (E) width shoe, we recommend sizing up a half size. For instance, if a gentleman wears a 10.0E, we recommend ordering a 10.5 from our selection. Unfortunately, we have found that our shoes do not fit men who wear a EE or EEE width shoe.
For women's shoes, please refer to the inches and centimeter measurements to best determine shoe size. Typically, there is a two size difference between men's and women's shoes. For instance, if a lady wears a size 8.0 in women's sizes she would wear a 6.0 in men's shoes.
Please do not hesitate to message us at Help@JayButler.com with any unanswered questions regarding sizing.

The Power Loafer
Want to make a sophisticated statement? Slide on a pair of Millbank loafers in alligator leather. They’re our take on the venerable bit loafer style first popularized in the 1950s. We make ours a little differently, with a traditional American silhouette that includes a shortened vamp, a sleek sole that’s flexible yet durable, and a subtle heel that’s just the right height. Whether you’re in the boardroom or sealing a big deal while working from home, they match comfort with sophisticated, classic, confident style. And, since we make them in both gold- and silver-toned bits, with ten leather color options, including ostrich leather, there’s a perfect pair for every style.
Made with Care
Cordwainers trained in traditional moccasin construction and sewing techniques make all our loafers by hand in the legendary shoemaking town of Leon, Mexico. Their generational shoemaking knowledge, paired with our top-quality materials like full-grain leather and suede, ensure Jay Butler loafers are built to fit just right and stand the test of time. To learn more about how our shoes are made, follow one of our cordwainers through the production process.
Sizing and Shipping
We use US sizes, and our loafers fit true to size compared to most other US-sized dress shoes. Our shoes are sized as a D width. Those with wider feet (E or EE) should consider going up half a size. Shipping, returns, and exchanges are free for all orders over $125. For more information on our sizing and shipping policies, visit our FAQ, Sizing, and Returns & Exchanges pages.
