Not yet - but I might pop out on Sunday. It is on until the end of the year. Once I go I shall post a report for the benefit of members and guests.

People on GQ wear loafers with no socks - I thought it was just the holy grail of suede loafer wearing.

 

I can now safely wear socks my loafers. I find that my shoes degrade much more rapidly when I wear them without socks. There is also the odour factor, and there is also the blister factor. It is just a million times more practical for me to wear socks, I just didn't know whether it was the done thing.

 

I had a large group of Hong Kong friends come over the other weekend. They were all wearing TODS. Rob, are you sure these Andy Toms can match the likes of Tods?

If you can live without the Tod's logo then yes they are fairly similar. If you need to keep up with the Jones' in HK then perhaps you need to spend some money for the T stamp.

 

A few guys here have bought pairs as far as i know - ill let them draw the comparison.

 

FWIW as you know i wear loafers alot but i never wear the same pair twice in a row .. im also not playing sport in driving loafers hence my feet dont sweat much in them and i have zero odour issues - and ive got pairs that are 3-4 years old. They are also good quality leather and not like those $10 kmart shoes you posted last week hence will not degrade that quickly.

 

If you have particularly stinky/sweaty feet you can get the lower cut loafer socks as a protective layer

 

Otherwise back to rubber thongs lol8[1].gif

Okay, this is gonna come off as a bit kinky and I know I will get lambasted with this post but I have a couple of pairs of Church shoes which, when I take them off at the end of day, and they are still body warm eminate the smell of blended scotch whisky. I've only had this issue with my Church and Dack's shoes (which are likely Church shoes but that's another story). Has anybody else had this rather pleasant olfactory issue?

I really don't think anybody should try this guy's homebrew.

Something to declare....with respect to loafers and socks I swing both ways.

I wear loafers (and boat shoes and canvas sneakers) with no socks if I am wearing jeans, shorts or very casual trousers (eg chinos). I like that photo of Ethan above.

I never wear lace up/dress shoes without socks.

I never go sockless with a suit or with tailored trousers.....to me it looks (and I hope I am not offending anyone here) more than a little creepy.

Me too. Out and proud.

Quite happy with the Luxire pants, might need to shrink the waist measurement though on the next pair. Unhappy with the shelf butt though, any ideas for solutions? 

I think those could be worn a little lower. They look like they are being sucked up your butt. You might need to loosen the waist and wear a belt. The break on those rather nice Alden's would improve as well.

Those look very tight in the seat...

 

They drop ~1in while wearing, what I think I'm going to have to do on the next pair is increase the front and back rises, which should both give me some more break and stop the the 'butt sucking' also? As I would like to keep where they are sitting at the moment, but agree with the comments.

Topman has sock liner for $6. They are completely no show. These days I wear them rather than going completely sockless.
