post #15031 of 30739

Hey guys, got a question for ya.

 

Summer's coming up, and I need a new pair of shoes that pretty much goes to match into alot of outfits.
I'll mostly be wearing chinos shorts with a shirt, or a t-shirt/polo. Might even use jeans but not as much.
Currently I have a pair of these http://img.tradera.com/images/041/142193041_1.jpg sorta, and would like to have something more summery/cooly.

 

All help appreciated

Crockett and Jones loafer?

Yeah I was thinking likewise, but then I'd have 2 pair of brown shoes and no other color. Isn't that somewhat of a waste? I really like brown shoes but does it fit to many outfits?

Definitely a loafer. But seeing as how the shoes pictured are eccos, I'm guessing those are out of his price range. What's the budget?

Spot on mate, my budget is not as wide as I am 18 y/o and studying. 
I'd like to have as cheap as possibe, but can range up to about 90 euros.

If you are dressing casually I see no reason to wear black shoes. Especially loafers.

Spot on. My budget is far away from the loafer up there (checked the price up). My budget would range up to 90 euros max, but I'd love to find a cheap nice pair since I'm 18 and studying, no income really.

Okey, so no loafers, why? And why not black? Seen some people pull it off nicely, but when I think about it maybe they might have not dressed casually.
Sorry for the questions but I'm relatively new to this fashion thing.

Brown fits pretty much any outfit, especially more casual outfits. You'll find that many people on this forum don't own a black shoe.

Check out what a tailor would take for "shortening" the shoulder-width by like an inch or so, and If you think it's worth it then take this one.

Not much else I think needs to be altered

 

 

EDIT: but I agree with what someone else said, that the shoulders on both jackets look a bit odd

Look for a driving loafer. If you're 18, it'll fit your age well. It won't last long, but that's true for pretty much anything within your budget.

Thanks Offmyrack - I'll take some more pictures with the shirt tucked in, and a few with all three buttons buttoned up as well. Thanks for your opinion on the blazer, too.

Black is fine for dress shoes. Loafers are casual shoes. So a black loafer would have an identity crisis.

Okey, yeah I've seen alot of brown shoes. Personally I really like the colour, and it seems to blend in to many situations. Cheers!

Okey, thanks :) Although I don't see alot of difference between the driving loafer and the shoe im wearing currently, except it has shoelaces.

Aha, I gotcha :)

post #15044 of 30739

Actually, how about a loafer thats closer to the gray look? Dark grey, light grey? Medium grey? :D Maybe beige?
What colours are acceptable to fit several outfits?
