That reminds me of a coolstorybro. I met a guy wearing belgian loafers a couple of months ago. When he told me he was an art dealer, I got very excited and told him I felt like I was meeting a cliche - that belgian loafers are supposed to be the offical shoes of art dealers but that I had never seen an art dealer who really wore them. He pretended to not know what I was talking about, and the next time I saw him, same setting, he was in laceups.

has anyone bought this type of loafer from Rubinacci? would anyone here actually wear them out?

 

the tiny bow makes them look very feminine indeed, what are others thoughts? i think id be quite concerned heading back home on the tube in london in these shog[1].gif .. the only people ive seen wearing a shoe like this are on luca & poirot reruns!

Spend enough time in the SF echo chamber and all sorts of things will start to seem sensible.

The upside is that you'll be well positioned to become an art dealer.

doc that made me laugh out loud .. the 'SF echo chamber' .. its so true rotflmao.gif  there so is an SF 'look book', and sure i can spot a fellow SFer at 100 paces ..  anyways ..

 

i was actually wondering if theyd look ok on a night out (really does just goes to show ive been spending far too much time in the SF echo chamber)  .. ive got a niggling feeling though that on a night out in a bar i would face a long evening of ridicule from my friends & quite possibly get beaten up on leaving ..

 

would anyone wear this? or am i losing it ..

 

please help musicboohoo[1].gif

I think it's a shoe for wearing in the home. The sole doesn't look like it would stand up to a lot of use on pavement. If you're the sort of man who could pull off a smoking jacket, then I suspect you could pull off the Belgian.

linen trousers, shorts, casual summer clothes...

yes, the sole is flimsy. mine are full leather, unlined, as some of the models on the r. display.

I am a rubinacci client as well...I think this is classic! Perhaps a bit long and round in the arms, but classic. I'd prefer to see it pulled out with a pale gray or off white with a higher neck or double button collar to compliment the double breast lapel.

In a word...Splendid!

Love the slubby ties. I got no hate for Belgian shoes. I have some old Santonis that are similar.
