Ode to the slip on loafer:
My how you’ve grown up. Years ago we’d turn our backs on you thinking you’d be a perfect fit for our father’s wardrobe.
“A loafer me? Never,” we’d say.
But then my fellow readers, we were but kids.
There it is. The loafer, like a lot of men’s fashion, has come a long way from it’s humble beginnings. Not specific to one occasion, the loafer comes in many shapes and sizes. We’re going to focus on something a little more dressy, but that doesn’t mean you can have a little fun with it.
This pair, or just shoe, works great with formal wear—of course. Pair it with black or blue slacks with black socks, and you’ll do just fine. But if you want a to spice things up a bit, keep reading.
Try digging some black loafers with a pair of slim indigo jeans. Take advantage of the the slim tailor in your jeans and wear a pair of red socks. The slim cut will reveal your red socks, and thus your Abarth side (pronounced Ah-Bart), to go along with it. Black, indigo and red? That’s the stuff legends are made of.
We don’t write a post script often, so when we do, we recommend you listen. These shoes would alos look great without socks—sockless. Yeah, it’s getting cold out. That’s why this is a post-script.
