Picture shows one way of wearing loafers. Personally I do prefer socks. For loafers I wear cotton socks that are either in a light pastel colour (for more casual occassions) or in a colour that does not stand out too much. I do understand the appeal of "socks off" but I think it's more comfortable with a pair of cotton socks. Maybe I'm just getting old. biggrin.gif Repost:

What colour of polish would you use on these so as to not ruin the beautiful antiquing?

I think I have some saphir blue cordovan polish lying around...will that be ok?

you can also use black and neutral....black with very thin layer applications will not darken it too much but do use the wax and not the cream as the cream has more pigment in it and will "blacken" it

Cgo, beautiful shoes; could you post more pics. You wouldn't dare them now, would you?

I would rather see skin than socks. IMO, each of those examples can be improved by either wearing lace ups or losing the socks.

I seriously think loafers are v casual shoes and look good only when work casually

Sounds like times when I used to play pick-up basketball games except it was shirts vs. skins. smile.gif

Oh, and if anyone cares... my WIGMORES are flying across the pond! Hopefully the snow will be plowed off by the time they arrive! bounce2.gif

I think that I have enough bal boots now.: puzzled:
