post #31066 of 37428

A question about practice more than theory, directed at loafer people.

 

What’s the most basic loafer in your world?  As a baby boomer raised in the American northeast it’s the penny loafer for me, but I’ve gotten the impression that for some others it might be the tassel loafer.

 

Just curious.

 

Cheers,

I prefer the apron toe tassel or a driver as something that I can wear just wherever, casually, or dressed down business.

To me and, I guess, in most parts of my country, is the tassel loafer.

I'm with @Academic2, in my world there is only the penny loafer.

Alden cordovan tassel loafer all the way...even with suits...at least where i'm from.

I am not a loafer person, but where I'm from you wear penny loafers with casual outfits and TASSEKS with suits/odd jackets.

post #31072 of 37428
I've never seen loafers with a suit around here. Only with shorts, khakis, or white jeans in summer.

So TASSEKS are less casual than penny loafers where you’re from?  Interesting.   Thanks.

 

I also am not a loafer person (I would have been in my late teens the last time I bought a pair, and they would have been penny loafers), but I am very interested in regional and generational variations in attitudes toward dress.

 

Cheers,

And I think the texture is rough enough that it could work easily as an OJ

Lazio fit well. But the issue that I cannot overcome is their fabric quality. I havent seen anyone complain about SUIT SUPPLY's construction quality. I visited BB but their lapel width is not wide enough and they dont fit well. So, I should go down the KW road.

Does SS list where the fabric is from?

Usually. The fabric is very hit or miss. Not all SuSu is of crappy fabric, though plenty of their offerings are. That particular Lazio, if you like the way it looks, is certainly worth investigating.

Yup, inside every jacket I have seen. Lots of VBC, Barbera, ormezzano, ferla,Ethomas, even some delfino. Seems to be almost all Italian mills.

Though plenty of these can produce less that great fabrics.
