Has anyone here pulled off dress shoes with shorts?

Got a picture or link to someone pulling this off ? I think I saw a picture of this somewhere, but can't recall if this was real or a hallucination.

Hallucination. I have seen old Cuban and Italian men do this with panache, but I think the rest of us should run in the other direction.

A dress shirt? No. But a brooks brothers OCBD? Sure. Edit: for some reason I read shirt...shoes, not so much.

I have wondered if this works? I had a hard time accepting loafers with shorts, since it does seem a bit like someone accidently grabbed their dress shoes. So I've looked for shoes that are clearly not dress shoes. The picture posted by Spoo is a woven leather loafer (bottom), and the other shoes are sufficiently idiosyncratic to defy classification as a dress shoe (top). The only feedback I've received on these was that one person didn't like the woven pair, and the upper pair would go better with other pants, no clear response on how these work with shorts.

Those "potato sack calves" are what what caves are supposed to look like guys, if you've spent 30 years running.

Yes, I do wonder if the loafers look feminine, and once posted a poll once about whether loafers looked feminine, but no one else seemed to think so.

+1. Change the title to "Has anyone here pulled off LOUIS VUITTON dress shoes with HERMES shorts?" and you stand a chance of hitting your trifecta.

Michael Bastian (?) Played out a little, but only one I thought was OK.
