Ok to wear my dark brown suede loafers now that it's summer?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
They're the Brooks Brothers tasseled ones - I love the things, but I'm wondering whether they need to hit the back of the closet for the summer.

Everybody's dancing
To the farfisa beat
All the girls are crazy
Acting out the heat
Tie and shirts and cufflinks
Well that's pretty neat

I wear all sorts of suede shoes in the summer but I tend to avoid dark brown as it is better suited for fall/winter fabrications.

While the "Rules" might say otherwise, dark brown suede loafers might make a good contrast with khaki, light grey, etc. in the dog days of summer.

I generally wear light coloured suede shoes in summer, but by coincidence, yesterday I wore chocolate brown Ferragamo bit loafers. Rest of outfit was a pale orange polo from Loro Piana and a pair of light-coloured (sort of stone/creamy) chinos. The contrast was nice and they worked well with the orange of the shirt I thought.

I've retired my dark brown suede wingtips for the summer, but I have a pair of John Lobb Jodhpur boots in brown suede on the way. Once I see how dark they are, I may decide to wear them occasionally this Summer.
