Wow, same for me with all these items. Only within the last few months... I've seen a lot of good Instagram pics of the above that made me change my mind.

Welp - I'm unexpectedly stuck in Washington.  Storms cancelled my flight home, and the recovery flight options tomorrow suck.

 

So I'm making lemonade - renting a car, checking out Alden of DC and then driving home.  Will still get home sooner than the airlines offered...

 

:D

One of the things I like most about this thread is the exposure to different looks put forth by folks who share a similar interest. It has allowed me to broaden my personal aesthetic and appreciate others. Since reading I now include shell, alden, selvedge, boots, wing tips, crepe sole, etc... and it has only increased my interest in other sartorial areas of which I have always been interest but only now exploring. Have a great weekend gents!

This looks to be the perfect time to post my question as we have a LHS and Full Strap posted directly above. I want to grab a loafer and I'm debating between the LHS, Full Strap and Tassel in Color 8. I think I'll eventually own all three, but trying to decide which model to go with first. The unlined LHS is appealing because I think I could get some use w/o socks in the summer. The other two are appealing because I could wear them in the office on a Friday. I'm thinking the LHS might be a bit too casual for the office. If you could only own one color 8 loafer, what model would it be and why?

Thanks!

The Alden shell tassel loafer is an American classic. You'll look good wearing it every day of the week, no matter what kind of office. The full strap is second in terms of formality, and the LHS is good for Fridays.

Just curious - how many folks still work in offices where these rules are essentially still in effect. Said another way, how many people wear a suit every day?
