Not sure whether a linen tie is CBD, but the weather called for it. Btw, IanGP, glad you're back, you used to be my favorite poster!

Definitely CBD. Depends on the styling. I'm wearing one right now. Love them. Teh Vanda is where it's at.

Or a wingtip derby? Or a suede buck? That's right, nothing.

Some say it is a weather thing. Anything else is too robust for the weather. Ok, it is hot, I understand that, but not so hot that it would make me want to wear loafers.

Loafers are awesome. They're just to bring a more casual vibe. That said, I have too many and need some chukka in my life.

 

If I'm going out with a few folks, having a few drinks and relaxing, I don't want shoes. The irritation of tying then untying shoes every time I go in/out of my house or someones house is silenced by a good pair of loafers. Or four, in my case. (Did I say I have too many?) Weekends are damn near strictly loafers for me. Weekdays are lace-ups.

Norwegian split toes are terrible. Not aesthetically pleasing at all, way too bulky. I'd wear crocs before I'd wear those. Loafers are great for casual summer fits, but I'm sure you'd be wearing black oxfords while having a picnic in the park.

 

A vanda tie is on the to buy list. I love their shantungs!

Like I said. Lazy. Also, chukkas are next on my list of ugly, purposeless footwear.

Mimo,

 

Thank you so much for your advice and suggestions.  I will look into some of the things you mentioned.  I feel very strange dropping $300+ on a pair of shoes for myself.  Monks, chukkas and dress suedes are all on my radar.  I'm looking at Meermin right now, but even $200 feels crazy.  I'm so cheap sometimes.

I guess you can call it that. I'll stick to calling your captoes larvae and we can call it even.

Nothing wrong with captoes, they have their place, but so do loafers. They're at opposites ends of the spectrum. Just because you like a certain style of shoes doesn't mean that all other shoes are ugly (except for split toes!) nest.gif

Captoes are lovely. His uncastrated ones are not.

But pB is way too high up to ever be told those are ugly.
