To the average eye, there's a big difference between the shoes a man wears with a suit and with jeans and a t-shirt ... but to the stylish man of today, there's not really a difference. Brogues, oxfords, and loafers are considered a daily staple today. In the meccas of fashion such as NY, LA, and our friends in Europe, its completely normal to spot a gent in $200 loafers with a t shirt and shorts - the key is to be as subtle as possible.
A burgundy pair of Cole Haan Penny loafers had been on my wish list for two years before this past weekend. They're elegant enough to wear with a double breasted suit, and classy enough to wear with a t-shirt and jeans. You definitely odn't need to pull off some crazy stunt accessory-wise when wearing these beauties.
So, make your Saturday morning coffee run that much more interesting with a clean pair of loafers by swapping them out with your sneakers this spring and summer.
