Good to hear that, just ordered this from Lance (virtual clothes horse) - he's always great to deal with.

The buckle is silver, hope the belt is not too much for the office

I'd go with some crisp white sneakers to balance the heaviness of jacket's material and dull gray color, but actually depends what trousers are you wearing with it

Is there anyway to brighten up a pair of shoes to its original color (which was darken overtime due to normal polishing) besides natural sunlight or stripping using damaging solutions like acetone?

Who is the maker on the shoes? I think a re-crafting service, if available from the maker, would do the trick for you. Other than that, if you haven't used saddle soap to clean off all the wax to take a look at what lie underneath, I'd recommend it and proceed from there.

Regular English shoemakers (EG, C&J). Re-crafting is always an option but too expensive for the value in my case. I don't mind the color, just wonder if there is any cheap/quick fix.

How would the warmth of a lambskin jacket like this:

Compare to the warmth of a down-filled jacket?

Hello all,

 

So, I was wondering if you could tell me what I could wear with these. They are a reddish/brown pair of loafers. I was told that I cannot wear these with jeans because they are too formal looking. Is this true? Also, what kind of socks would I wear with these? 

 

Thanks!

I'd say you can't wear those with jeans because they're too ugly looking. I recommend donating those.

 

EDIT: I realize that that sounds harsh. I wasn't trying to be offensive, I just think there's a lot of unnecessary stitching that's pretty ugly.

You could wear them with most anything from jeans, up through chinos and cords, all the way to wool trousers w/sportcoat.

I'm not one who holds fast to the rule about not wearing loafers with suits, although the loafers in question don't strike me as being a particularly good pairing with most suits.

Well, now you've been told that you can wear them with jeans, and that they're not too formal looking.

Penny loafers and jeans is a very traditional combination. Not everybody cares for it, and presumably the person who told you your loafers were too formal to wear with jeans doesn't care for it. But it's been a widely accepted pairing for 60+ years now.

You could opt not to wear socks with them. (Not my favorite look, but I'm not terribly offended by it during the warm weather months.) Plenty of men opt for solid color socks. (JFK often wore them this way.) I not infrequently wear mine with argyles. (The picture, below, shows James Dean wearing argyle socks with his penny loafers..)

Do Allen Edmunds shoes ever go on sale? I've never owned nice shoes. Am looking at a pair of New Orleans for $345 - Can wait if they or their retailers discount them periodically. Please advise - Thanks

I was mulling over getting this grey tie to wear with a grey suit (prob. mid-grey worsted, but also have dark grey flannel) and a white shirt.  Would this be the very stylish and modern look I have in my mind's eye, or a dull disaster?
