my name is will frazier, and I am a fourth-year student studying poetry writing and art history at the university of virginia. I am scarpa’s newest blogger, taking the place of my good friend isabelle conner who graduated from uva in the spring. I’m thrilled to be working for scarpa; my first blog post, featuring lizzie fortunate jewels, went up last week, and I’m looking forward to posts to come!

i seem to remember my first pair of cordovan penny loafers. I was probably ten or eleven. I took after my dad and wore them everywhere, usually without socks. As for a favorite shoe now, I’ve had the same pair of tod’s drivers since I was sixteen, and they’re still kickin’

I can never think of one for myself, so I ask friends (sometimes strangers, too). The most popular response has been an owl.
