What types of casual shoes are your favorites? Do you have a particular brand that you like?
Both. The Alden chukkas I am talking about are suede, have a nice round toe, and an unlined shaft...makes for a great casual ankle boot.
I have Crockett and Jones Cavendish http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/cavendish-ocean-suede
and my favorite is probably these Ferragamo Nello's http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/salvatore-ferragamo-nello-bit-loafer-men/3811558
I'm young so I prefer suede loafers to wear with like jeans or chinos. I'm contemplating like Saint Laurent Jodphurs too.
