For that intended purpose... Loafer. No doubt.
I may have to disagree
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
As beautiful as that shoe is I would not wear it very casually or out shopping on the weekends as the OP states, haha. Definitely a good looking shoe. I had that on the last time I visited my Carmina retailer. I was surprised how well the rain last fit me (high instep).
Great looking shoe, thanks for the pic. So, jungleroller and tifosi, what you are saying is that I should get both?
Well, no. I still think that for your intended purpose, the loafer is better. But if you also need a formal, oxford then that would be a great shoe to get in addition.
Out of curiosity, are you of the school that believes a tan oxford is not to be worn with Navy?
I will wear tan with navy for some reason, but I typically will not wear a mid - dark brown. I will wear burgundy or black instead. I will often wear my whiskey(light tan) cordovan shoes casually with blue.
Standard issue black cap toes on the Forest last. I'm very happy with the quality and construction:
Hi, will you ever carry some shell tanker boots again? I used to think they were the ugliest things in the world and now I'm scrambling to find a pair.
Does anyone know if this is a welt issue or just cosmetic, hard to capture in photos but it appears the upper is separated a little from welt at this area:
Shoes have been worn around house a little and outside twice
Something's wrong there--either a failed/damaged inseam or a poor job of inseaming. My guess is that it is not simply cosmetic.

Looks great! Can we get some "in the wild" photos once you start wearing them? I'm considering doing a simpson lasted wholecut in black myself.
