Traditionally, most (not all) would say penny loafers with a suit would be a bit too casual, though shell loafers with a sport coat and tie is very much a traditional look.There's was an interesting Friday Challenge this week where one had to wear a full suit with loafers. You might check that out. There are some good examples of dressing down certain suits with loafers.Your Hinsdales look great. Nice snag!
