    +1. Change the title to "Has anyone here pulled off LOUIS VUITTON dress shoes with HERMES shorts?" and you stand a chance of hitting your trifecta.

    ^(referencing PTW, not Moo) those loafers are actually much better looking on you than the previous options

    In general, I think you'd do better by dropping the layered top look. Having the tshirt and open button-up combination calls attention to your midsection in an unflattering way, especially with the black tshirt. Simply wearing a buttoned camp shirt and shorts would look much better on you.

    Posing with your hands on your hips doesn't help either...

    Thanks, it might look better because more of the foot is covered. Other suggestions very helpful as well.

    Why would you want to? Do you not have any other shoes?

    Got a picture or link to someone pulling this off ?
    I think I saw a picture of this somewhere, but can't recall if this was real or a hallucination.


    Why limit yourself to dress shoes. Go with Opera Pumps.

    When I make any mention of Styleforum to my friends in the real world, this is exactly the sort of thing they imagine happens here.

    I think it can work if you have legs that aren't hairy or muscular. Otherwise, stick to sneakers or loafers (wore selvedge denim shorts with JCrew suede driving loafers yesterday). Thought it looked alright.

    Loafers aren't dress shoes.

    Especially those ones.
