when you say loafers, are you talking dress loafers with tassles? or like, shorts and loafers, casual, driving mocs, etc... pics?

i have a couple pair of driving moc's... just picked up a nice pair of 1901 (nordstrom's line) for $60, they are comfy as hell and i can wear them no problem without socks. dress loafers... not for another couple decades

Loafers are great. I can't really wear them (the arsonist had oddly shaped feet) but the look works well with business casual. I'd note that loafers are inherently less dressy than lace-ups (with few exceptions).

So...it depends on the exact model. Got one in mind so we can criticize it all day?

I use to looooove the classic Salvatore Ferragamo bit loafer.......until I found out it's wildly overpriced for a shoe of sub-par quality.

I really like the 1901s. I think I'm going to pick up a brown pair on my way home tonight.

those are the ones i got, they look great... soft as hell on the inside, in fact, a little too soft of an insole, however that will flatten out over time

It's a shame that someone spilled a box of Fruity Pebbles cereal on your running shoes.

Hmm... Even i wouldn't wear those
They are a little too over the top


I look like i belong on a yacht somewhere today
Pink shirt with sleeves rolled up
Light chino pants
Boat shoes with no socks (i can't get used to it)
Someone lend me a sweater to tie over my shoulders

I wish
I can only wear big sunglasses if i wear contacts
And i rarely ever wear contacts ... because lazy and because sensitive eyes
Can't put prescription in big lens because they get way too thick (exponentially) as the size of the lens increases

that sucks... contacts were my saving grace to awesome sunglasses... i can't live without them.

hell, if you stop shopping for a month, you can get corrective lasic lol... have you tried different types of contacts? i thought my eyes were sensitive but i'll tell ya, i can't feel them from the second I put them in. i need sunglasses... can't stand squinting outside, I feel it does so much damage to your eyes on those bright bright sunny days

I want to get ICL procedure done instead of lasik... Costs about $7000-10,000 it seems

Biggest advantage of ICL over lasik... It is reversible
In case anything ever happens later on... Like develop glaucoma or something
Still looking into it

I used to wear gas permeable (hard) lens and they irritated so much
I have soft toric lens now but i only wear them for snowboarding and very physical activities such as flag football

I'd read that navy shoe polish works well to give black shoes more depth and mirror. I bought some navy Saphir and used it on my J&M cap toes...wow. I was skeptical but this stuff is in a different world than Kiwi.

^^^Kiwi has treated me well for years......along with people that have used it for longer than most of us have been alive, lol. That's not to say that there aren't better products out there, but Kiwi does what I expect it to for black shoes.

Many people have been pleased with Applebee's for years, but that doesn't mean Morton's is unnecessary.
