Mr Michael Sy raised a question last asking members preferences for a wholecuts colours: black, oak or burgundy.
My reply was the following.....
Developing this further, does this have merit? I don't think loafers look as good black than say brown or Burgundy, the same goes for dub monks. Black would be the last colour pick for dub monks, mind you texture does have an obvious role and black suede does look awesome.
By the way we Mrs GF and I have a red car, I just bought a pair red suede derby's and after seeing those Burgundy whole cuts posted here I am sold on them, don't know about suede they strike me as more of a formal occasion or work related shoe not casual "I'm off to the pub shoe" As for loafers I would go brown, I have too many memories of petty crims and D's drinking at the Trades Man's Arms in Darlo who all used to wear black loafers. Suede is another matter and I would go with a colour that would suit summer for me, eg wear them with chinos and shorts.
Also noticed the Aquila has picked up CK's two tone approach to suede loafers saw a few in the Canberra store yesterday. Imitation is the highest form of flattery after all
