Because this is STYLE forum not Comfy Forum. Otherwise there'd be lots of pictures of us in well fitting plush onesies. Footies optional.
Yeah, obvs, but as long as a look is relatively coherent and looks good, who gives a fuck apart from Star Wars nerds? I am far more concerned with people posting incoherent/ugly looks--which happens on a daily basis--than 'oh no, he wore this type of sock at this occasion--fail'. Only Star Wars nerd can take
criticism and rules so far past where they need to be. Yes, we get it, you read up about the history of clothes; you know this was worn then and why. Doesn't mean that affects in any way the
aesthetics of a good look. If you don't want to wear loafers when it's rainy/in the dark/at a party/to a funeral/in space/whatever then fine, but don't always act surprised when someone else does, and ASK them why they are wearing them (OMFG, LOL). You are just a Star Wars nerd; get over it.
Edit: I just read your next post (ROFL). You say there is no reason to wear bit loafers. LOL, there is no reason to wear a tie. There is no reason to wear clothes than to stay warm and/or dry. ALL of the other 'reasons' have been made up by people, so please don't say stupid things like this. His shoes were a good colour, a nice shape, reasonably good leather, etc. I don't see how anyone could mark him down for those shoes bar personal distaste for loafers (which is what this is).
Oh, I see that ranty Alex is posting today...
If I thought they worked, I wouldn't have encouraged him to find an alternative, right? And they don't evoke a collegiate/preppy vibe. More dentist-at-the-weekend.
