I went with a chestnut pair of Alfred sergeants at a similar fork in the road in the past. I so wish I'd have chosen a darker brown or oxblood color instead. I've never been comfortable pairing the light brown shoes with any of my suits in relation to my work environment.

Cox if it works for you then Mash'allah. It doesn't look too bad for Noodles either, but most 348 pics I see either crease across the toe cap, double crease across the vamp, or are loose in the heels.

There is a definitely a time and a place for gucci horsebit loafers...and I regularly wear mine on casual occasions particularly at my beach/country club. 

 

I also have a pair of cream horsebits that I like to wear in Florida.

 

I don't think they look appropriate with an sc or a suit...but with a pair of chinos/khakis or even shorts they are great.

 

 

I think location has a lot to do with it. I'm back home briefly in Florida and I went out to dinner with my friends and found myself in a conversation where they were expressing adulation for each other's Ferragamos, and discussing whose metal buckle design was the coolest. I felt disappointed to be found in a rare opportunity to have a sartorial conversation and could not relate whatsoever. South Florida is a place where people pride themselves on being fashion-forward and many things revolve around flashiness around here.

But then again, I have beautiful feet.

 

Cox has finally revealed what gets him going.

I rarely judge people I see in real life based off what they wear. If they are clearly putting in real effort into a CM outfit and failing ridiculously, then yeah, I judge a little bit. But I don't really cast aspersions outside of this.

However, I harshly judge anyone wearing Ferragmo and Gucci horsebit loafers whenever I see this. Not that my judgment should amount to anything. It doesn't. But they know there is only one reason they are wearing those shoes: it signals wealth. Which is stupid, because a) they aren't particularly good shoes and b) they aren't particularly expensive when it comes to shoes. Fucking mirrey's.

Does it effectively signal wealth? Probably. But this is the rare case where I judge intent rather than execution.

Do you have the same opinion for these Horsebit loafers?

Any objection to this noodling?
Will it be fine with my CBD?
Or does it overlap with Hallam?

They'd look better without the bit, but they are better than any I've ever seen.

If course, they aren't Ferragamo or Gucci.

My distaste for shoes from those brands probably has to do with growing up amongst a bunch of mirreys

I agree. I would never buy a pair of shoes that looked like that, especially the one on the right side of the picture.

I think it's too big. Your foot must bounce around like a ping pong ball in summer socks.

It doesn't. I don't get it.

It looks like you can stick your thumb down the side of your shoe and the "V" is almost completely touching:

That last doesn't look like a good fit for your foot shape. I'm glad they don't cause you pain, but you could definitely do better fit-wise.

Try a brand that offers widths in all their lasts, and only buy shoes you can try on.
