I would vote for Venetian with a slightly pointy toe. That Epaulet special leather sounds like it would fit for both dress up and down, especially it'll be in a brownish color. Are you planning on this being handsewn or?

A 35" waist would equate to a size 34 in a Walt. A size 35 Walt would give a 36" waist.

I'm still not sure what the measurement difference is for the upper block, thighs, legs and leg opening between a size 34 and size 35 Walt.

halfway between a 34" and 36"

That's what I thought but hoped for Mike to verify.

 

Since I like 34's upper block on down, being a linen pair that may run a bit slimmer, 35 probably will work out there.

 

Maybe I'll need to taper the knees on down to the leg opening some as I got me some skinny legs.

@metranger8694 they're going to be raddest pair of trousers that you own. That fabric is unbelievably classic. With a lightweight navy jacket and tan suede shoes, they're freaking unstoppable. Great choice!

@tv2177 that's what I'm thinking too. This would be goodyear welted, so finished on the top with a low-profile machine moc toe, like Edward Green or Carmina would. 

 

I feel like we need a hook on it to be successful. I can make a really nice dressy loafer that's simply less expensive and better quality than other stuff out there, but that strategy works better for shapes with more mass appeal - like a PTB or Shortwing. I'd like to make this really minimal and sharp - maybe more Raf Simons than St. Crispins, and offer something very distinct. A shockingly comfortable unlined piece with proper long-wearing construction and a killer price. So that it becomes a real "item" for us - like the Combat Boot was.

The Sade Loafer? Because whoever rocks these (especially with some cream windowpane linen pants) is nothing but a Smooth Operator.

@eljlakers see, that's why we fit in so well on Styleforum - where else on the Internet do you get talk of both unlined loafers and Sade?

As someone who often goes fishing for marketing advice, I'm happy to dispense some as well! I actually think Styleforum has tapped into this latent cross-section of dudes who grew up lusting after kicks and listening to diverse '90s music. You're not getting Raekwon references on A Suitable Wardrobe or Permanent Style.

Cool! So something like this, then:

Ha ha, couldn't help myself.

I'm excited to see what you think up Mike. Floppy and suede, we're already off to a great start!
