Gucci Loafers with the Gold Bit vs Silver Bit
Hey so I've been working for a while and I figured that the time to get some really nice loafers has arrived. I like the black Gucci horsebit loafers with the silver bit a ton - I see em everywhere and the people in my office recommend I get them. However, Gucci's website only lists the ones with the gold bit, and on the dept store websites (Saks, BG, etc) the silver bit ones are all sold out.
I feel like getting the gold would be a bad move. Should I wait to see if they re-release their classic silver bit sleds or maybe check other brands like AE or Ferragamo? Will they even sell the silver bit ones again/is it like a seasonal thing?
Thanks in advance. This may be a dumb question but bear with me here.
