    Don't you have to pair those with a little spoon around your neck and one nail longer than the others?

    I saw some in that color that were suede -- looked a lot better than those, which are too glossy and look rather cheap in that photo.

    Seriously, though. I'd wear the suede ones if I had the kind of money to buy expensive shoes with very limited utility. Open-necked shirt (white, light blue, or a blue & white stripe), white jeans or linen trousers, some kind of summer-weight sport coat or blazer. That would work well with brown bit loafers, too -- I actually want a pair of those.

    Patent leather finish + baby blue = fail.

    Though I love bit loafers, these are a bit too affected. Unless you often find yourself wearing white linen suits with grease stains where your hair falls at the shoulder, snorting mountains of coke off of high-dollar hookers and throwing disco-fueled parties on your yacht, there are better shoe options out there.

    That's better. But I still wouldn't recommend suede for wear on a yacht.

    Those are the ones I'd seen before. I like them much better than the blue patent, but jokes aside, I think the same shoe in brown would be much more wearable and every bit as stylish.

    Rock 'em with waxed linen jeans and one of those preppy Brooks Brothers style shirts, except get a more updated version from somewhere like Rag & Bone.
