    It is as old and traditional as the OCBD itself. I don't prefer the Gucci with the colors or logo as you correctly refer to it either. As far as being vile, take a close objective look at many men's shoe styles, the full brogue wing tip, the double monk, etc. They are all aesthetically challenged! Take that thought one step further and show all three to a bright young girl that has no preconceived ideas and guess which is thought of as prettiest?

    All I am saying is don't rush to hate the bit loafer, it is iconic and has earned a spot in any true trad wardrobe

    Peace.

    Dont wanna bring this thread off topic but: Ppl need to move with the times, denim does not necessarily mean faded, with holes or in the Levi's blue kind of stuff. Denim can be very chino like, very dark colours, very prim and proper looking. Not for work for sure, well would depend on where you work. But for a person like me 32 whose only job is to basically go out, it is great. I have to reiterate though that this would apply only to certain types of denim in my opinion. If you wear a jacket and tshirt u can go with distressed denim. If you are going to wear a shirt I always think it best to go with unadulterated denim, no fade, no distressing, cut properly etc. I use viapiana myself, fellow Canadian based in Bangkok, does great work.AND the only time I dont wear socks is if I am wearing bermudas and sandals.

    Nice! I would never guess chestnut, looks to dark. If i had to guess i would go for vintage oak.
