But please continue.

Hate suede (I know, break out the pitchforks lol), but love loafers.

Personally, I love them, for the reasons you posted.

 

Also divisive: plain socks, brown shoes... shit that makes no sense or for which there is no hesitation in real world

 

Last time double monks were mentioned in here enthusiasm was unanimous but guys get squeamish about loafers. More people buying high shaft dress boots than plain loafers. Get your head checked

edit - also, please not I said they're an acquired taste (which does not mean that I dislike them). I actually do like loafers, but that does not mean they are for, or liked by, everyone.

 

I read you loud and clear. There is nothing to "acquire" about a loafer. It is one of the most basic shoes. If you are only wearing lacing shoes, I begin to suspect you are overdressed for 99% of situations (surprise! welcome to SF).

 

Let me break it down for you: grown man discovers clothing at age 30, is used to wearing sneakers, decides that loafers have some vestigial preppy/Lord Fauntleroy connotation, afraid of foot looking dainty, decides to sink 401K into every iteration of closed toe laced shoe possible, including spectators.

 

If this were a matter of individual taste, that would be one thing, but trends on here suggest an overwhelming number of people are scared or put off by loafers.

Loafers are not an acquired taste. They are classics with a long tradition in the world of classic menswear. On a forum with a bunch of clothing nerds, there are sure to be some who dislike them (or pretty much any classic staple), but really that just means some eccentric people have an eccentric dislike of them. We all have our eccentricities.

I, for one, like to do yardwork in the nude while wearing only suede loafers.

Only if your neighbors post to this website would they be more horrified by your taste for suede loafers than the public display of the glory of your nakedness.

"Egad, Margaret! Come to the window. Look at this man! He's wearing suede loafers and mowing the lawn."

"Repugnant! Uncouth boor. Had he worn cordovan oxfords, he'd have no trouble brushing the grass cuttings off."

Loafers: Not for me, but I see them used to great effect by others

Chelseas: Down there in the garbage with dubs. Do not want for me or anyone else.

Not liking suede:
