I really the look of sleek black loafers like this Barker Mahler:Enough that I'm tempted to buy them. But I'm not sure what outfits I'd actually wear them with. I wear lace-ups with suits, and already have a range of loafers to wear with any season's casual outfits (pale brown venetians, chocolate horsebits and navy drivers, all in suede; tan pennies and dark brown tassels, both in calf). I already have a pair of black loafers too, but they're not as pretty as these, don't fit well, and have an annoying nick on the toes so I'm never sure if my disinclination to wear them stems from lack of an inspiring outfit or dislike of that particular pair. What clothes niche do you wear sleek black loafers with? Let's see if you can persuade me to spend money. Off the top of my head, the only outfit I can think of would be one with grey odd trousers, and if that's it, there's almost always a different shoe I would prefer to wear instead. Any other ideas?
